Ink Review #235: Seitz-Kreuznach Palm Green


Today is the first day of reader request week, so we are kicking off with Seitz-Kreuznach Palm Green. Thanks to @havenhursthanks on Instagram for sending a sample over for review. You can find this ink on


The color:

Palm Green is a medium green with some shading.


There is a little pop of pink sheen around the edges.


Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.

Dry time: 20 seconds

Water resistance: Low

Feathering: None

Show through: Medium

Bleeding: None

Other properties: Medium shading, low sheen, and no shimmer. The sheen is mainly in the flex nib on TR.

On 20 pound copy paper there was a little bit of feathering but other than that the ink behaved well. 

Ink swabs for comparison, left to right (top to bottom for mobile RSS): Diamine Cool Green, Seitz-Kreuznach Palm Green, and Robert Oster Green Diamond. Palm Green has less blue undertone than Cool Green, but more than Green Diamond.


Longer writing: 

I used a medium Pelikan M800 Renaissance Brown on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a wetter than average flow.


Overall, it's a nice ink. It has a wetter than average flow, which was nice. Give it a try, you might love it.
