While browsing the inks at Art Brown International Pen Shop recently I came across the Noodler's V-Mail series, and suddenly realized I don't own any green inks. This was immediately rectified, and I left with a bottle of G.I. Green. I wasn't sure if this was the original or re-mixed version, but browsing around Foundation Pen Network leads me to conclude this is the new green. It doesn't fade to olive khaki with an orange halo, but stays a vibrant combat green.
The green color is definitely intense, and was very noticeable even using my Pilot Namiki Custom 74 fine point. I do love the 3 oz bottle it comes in, with the pictures of different war planes on it. Definitely a great color and shades nicely, with not too much ink creep on the nib.
