Two-For Tuesday: A Couple of Ink Reviews

Here are a couple of quick ink reviews on inks that I was using over the weekend.  The first, Kaweco Palm Green, was a pleasant surprise, although it's not really a color that I'd find myself using all that often.  Like all Kaweco Inks, it's low-maintenance, if not a bit pricy in bottle form.  The second is Iroshizuku Asa-Gao ("Morning Glory"), which I really like, though I found it too similar to more economical colors like Waterman Florida Blue in order to justify paying the premium price for Iroshizuku.  The most pleasant surprise was the pen that I used for the second review, a Noodler's Ebonite Konrad "Dixie Methuselah," courtesy of our sponsors at PenChalet (link here).  A full review will be coming in the next couple weeks, but after some less-than-stellar experiences with Noodler's pens, I'm really enjoying the Konrad.
