Stipula Musk Green (Verde Mushiato)

Thursday, March 4, 2010

I bought a few bottles of Stipula Calamo Ink at the PenGallery. Pen Gallery is a really great shop which delivers fast from Kuala Lumpur to everywhere in the world. I never heard of this ink. So I read about it on The Fountain Netwerk. I became curious and ordered some bottles. For this review I used my Pilot Namiki Vanishing Point with an italic nib from Richard Binder.

This color tends a bit to Rohrer & Klingner Old Golden Green. But the color is darker and more green. The color has magnificent shading in combination with this wonderful italic nib. I really enjoy this ink. I thought this color was more green like the sample on the outside box, but is has more yellow in it.

Writing was great with this ink. I really enjoyed writing this review for you. The flow in this italic nib was great. I did not have a problem with it. It's a real quick dryer in the Moleskine. On Rhodia paper it takes more then 15 seconds to dry.

Stipula Musk Green
Can't read it? Here's the translation:
"Stipula Verde Mushiato

I put some Stipula Verde Mushiato in my Pilot Namiki Vanishing Point (italic)

What a great, nice, but strange green color. It hase a very nice shading from dark yellow to dark green.

This ink behaves great in this Moleskine. No bleed through. But a little bit of feathering can be found.

I think Stipula made a great green ink This ink costs $ 0,27/ml

The Bottle
The bottle contains 70ml ink. It's a very nice shaped model of bottle. The bottle has a nice wide opening and is deep enough for our larger nibs. This ink bottle has been developed for Netto, Stipula’s revolutionary system for a clean filling to the last drop. I did not buy that system it is very expensive in my opinion.

100% Moleskine proof
This ink is 100% Moleskine proof. I could not find a Moleskine where the ink showed any bleed through. Just a tiny bit of feathering in some Moleskines.

So again a great ink to write with in any Moleskine.

The glass of Calamo bottles is treated to protect the ink from the deterioration caused by exposure to the light.

I have been in love with fountain pens for a while now, in love with Moleskines forever and would like to know if you have any recommendations of a cheap fountain pen and ink that works well with Moleskines. I like the finer nibs with some controlled ink flow.
