Vinta Elysium Green on Midori MD

Ink

Elysium Green (Kayangan 1967) is the full name of the ink. It is named after Kayangan Lake which is said to be the cleanest lake in the Philippines. In 1967, the island where the lake was located was declared a National Reserve.

The ink is a dark green and has an average flow. While doing the writing samples, I noticed that the pen gently burped ink a few times, just enough to notice a sudden darkening and thickening of the line. It about once every few pages. This is the first time I’ve experienced it. I’m not sure if it is the ink, the pen, the weather, or maybe a combination of all. It is also quite likely that you may not experience the burping issues I did, so YMMV.

Dominant Industry Citrus Yellow on Midori MD

Ink

Citrus Yellow is a yellow ink with orange undertones. It’s that shade of yellow that makes me think of egg yolks. The ink has an average flow.

The ink is yellow when wet and the orange starts to appear as it dries, which makes it hard at times to see what I am writing. I find the words fairly readable when dried although it does still take a bit more effort and focus. I also found it easier to read in certain lighting conditions and harder in others.

On the bright side, this ink is easy to clean out of the pen.

  • Shading: Yes
  • Sheen: Nil
  • Feathering: Nil

Cult Pens Michael on Midori MD

Ink

Michael is a dark blue ink from the Deep Dark Inks series exclusive to Cult Pens. In smaller 30ml and 12ml bottles, it is called Little Micky. It is one of the three inks launched in May 2021 that were named after Cult Pens’ three longest-serving staff. You can read more about Michael (the human being) on Cult Pens blog.

The colour is described as a deep dark ocean blue on Cult Pens website. I find the ink leans a bit purple, probably due to the sheen. This ink has a wet flow.

On Midori MD paper,

  • Shading: Nil
  • Sheen: Yes
  • Feathering: Nil
  • Bleedthrough: Nil

This ink left a very faint line of colour residue in the pen barrel, easily removed using a pen flush.
