Robert Oster Green at Night

Today's ink is Green at Night, one of the more recent releases from Robert Oster. I purchased my bottle at Vanness Pens. The bottle is 50 ml of ink. 

The color...

Green at Night is a dark green with medium shading and sheen. 

I've noticed Robert Oster greens look a lot more blue in large swabs.

Robert Oster's inks always look best in ink drops. 

Feathering: Green at night had low feathering on Baron Fig paper, but did great on the other papers.

Show through: Green at Night had low to medium show through on all of the papers.

Bleeding: Green at Night only bled on Baron Fig paper, but did great on the other papers.

Dry time: On Rhodia paper, using a medium nib, Green at Night took 35 seconds to dry. 

Other Properties: Green at Night had medium shading and medium sheen on Tomoe River paper. Since the sheen is dark like the ink, it can be hard to notice if you aren't looking for it. It's a very subtle sheen compared to some of the other Robert Oster inks.

Swabs for comparison, left to right (or top to bottom if you are on RSS): Robert Oster River of Fire, Robert Oster Green at Night, and Robert Oster Peppermint. Green at night is the darkest, then River of Fire is lighter, and Peppermint is lighter than both of them. To see all of the Robert Oster inks I have reviewed so far, click here.

Longer writing:

I used a Noodler's Ahab on Tomoe River paper, and I had a bit of a flow issue, which was kinda weird. I had to force more ink into the feed to get rid of some hard starts.

Overall, I like Green at Night, but I think I prefer River of Fire. Give it a try.
