Pineider Green Ink Review

Pineider Green Ink Review & Giveaway

Get ready for a thorough Pineider Green ink review (and giveaway)! It all starts here, but we’re actually going to lead you on a chase to catch all the itty bitty remnants of each week’s ink review as we run through the details about this surprising ink.

All About the Ink Maker: Pineider

Pineider is a historic Italian company. Did you know they opened as a stationery store in Florence, Italy back in 1774? In their early years, this Italian company was specifically well known for creating exclusive (and very exceptional) stationery. However, since then, they have expanded their product line. Pineider products now include:

Pineider fountain pen inks are already available in Europe, but now they’re available in the USA (through If you can’t already tell, Pen Chalet is a proud authorized retailer of all Pineider products.

Introducing the Pineider Fountain Pen Inks to the US Market:

Pineider fountain pen inks are made in Italy and come in six classic fountain pen ink colors: Black, Blue, Green, Red, Sepia, and Turquoise. A few weeks ago, we posted a weekly ink review featuring Pineider Blue ink. This week, we’ll be bringing you the Pineider Green ink review.

This Week’s Featured Ink: Pineider Green Ink

Pineider Green ink is a unique color that we’d call a medium green ink with a hint of blue infused. It’s not a dark forest green ink, but it’s not a light color either. This green ink shows up dark on paper, and can be used as an every day ink color.

It’s Time: Pineider Green Ink Review

This week we put Pineider Green ink through our standard ink review tests…check the image below to see a visual of the Pineider Green ink review results. And read on for a summary and our conclusions!

Ink Review Testing Factors (to keep things scientific):

We used a French-made J. Herbin spiral glass dip pen (with a tip comparable to a medium-fine fountain pen nib) and french-made Rhodia dot pad paper.

{In the photo of this week’s ink alongside an “ink splat” published alongside this review, you can see how the Pineider Green ink performs on another popular, fountain pen safe paper, Clairefontaine Triomphe).

{If you’re interested in seeing how this week’s ink performs on the Col-o-ring Ink Tester by The Well Appointed Desk, you can catch the quick weekly ink review prep video we post to Tik Tok or Instagram Reels each week. You’ll get to see as we create an ink splat, and show off the ink using a qtip as well as a dip pen. You can find us on Tik Tok and Instagram @penchalet}.

Let’s talk about the Pineider Ink Bottle:

Pineider fountain pen ink comes in a large squared 75 ml. (2.5 oz.) capacity bottle, with a medium sized, ribbed lid for easy opening. The Pineider packaging is simple and effective.

How Much Does Pineider Fountain Pen Ink Cost?

Pineider Green ink is a very reasonably priced ink for the large quantity of Italian-made fountain pen ink. Remember to check for the latest discount prices on your favorite pens and fountain pen inks at

How Did This Week’s Ink Fair in the 1-Dip Test?

We conducted a 1-dip test with Pineider Green ink using a J. Herbin spiral glass dip pen and Rhodia dot pad paper. (For the 1-Dip Test, we dip the pen in ink once for each of three different writing samples. The three writing samples include: “S,” “X,” and scribble lines. The test looks for how well the ink performs on paper by showing if the pen runs out of ink before completing a full line). Pineider Green ink easily wrote across the paper on all three writing samples.

How Fast Does the Pineider Green Ink Dry?

Pineider Green ink showed a dry time of about 5 seconds with medium saturation; which is very quick. With that fast dry time – we’re very confident recommending it as an every day ink choice.

Does Pineider’s Green Ink Bleed Through?

We saw absolutely no bleeding during normal use of Pineider Green ink. We did see very slight bleed through during the heavy saturated cotton swab test.

Was There Any Feathering While Using Pineider Green Ink?

We saw no feathering during normal use, but we did see some slight feathering during the water test (more info on the water test coming up next).

How Does the Ink Stand Up to Water?

For the water test, we let an ink sample dry for about 3 minutes before running a wet cotton swab over the sample. This week’s ink isn’t waterproof, and we did see heavy color smearing, but that’s reasonable for a non-waterproof, dark ink color. The lines were still legible with some slight fading. We also saw some slight feathering during the water test.

What About Shading & Sheening Traits?

During our Pineider Green ink review, this Italian ink showed really nice shading traits (if you have a nib that allows ink flow variation like a stub or italic). We saw a dark green color all the way through to a variety of lighter shades of green. We also saw a slight red sheen at points of heavy saturation (and that slight red sheen is MUCH more pronounced in the ink splat sample – get a better look at it in videos posted on Tik Tok or Instagram Reels).

Final Conclusion on this Week’s Featured Pineider Ink:

Pineider Green fountain pen ink is very reasonably priced considering the large 75 ml. ink bottle (featuring a medium sized, easy open lid), and the fact that it is manufactured in Italy. The inks come in clear, neat packaging with simple color labeling. Pineider Green ink is one of 6 color options from this Italian company and the Green is a beautiful, everyday dark green color with a fast dry time that we’re very confident recommending as a good everyday ink color choice. Happy writing from Florence, Italy!

*UPDATE: Pineider fountain pen inks are no longer a US Exclusive product at as of July 2021, but they are still available, and still an excellent choice for fountain pen fans.

This is a gorgeous green, darker than Iroshizuku Shin-Ryoku. I like it!

That green looks fantastic!

I really love to write with shading ink. I have been eying this brand for some time and, since I like green inks, this one is really a looker. It is bright and that spatter of red is especially nice.

I saw the IG video of how the swatch was made with a blunt syringe. The edges on a heavy application are stunning! It’s like a signature for this particular ink. I’d love to splash some of this ink at the bottom of a letter- I sign, and the ink signs.

I’ve never tried Pineider inks. Once again, great to see a review on a brand I’m unfamiliar with! Love the “Springy” look of this.

I’m thinking this ink will look awesome in my new Leonardo Momento Zero Alga I was blessed to receive from Pen Chalet. Super color.

I’m always on the hunt for a good green ink, and this one is pretty intriguing. Especially with that super quick dry time!

I’ve been looking for inks that are less wet. I think I’ll get samples of this Pineider green and the blue one too.

It would be nice to see a review of a “pure” red ink: no magenta, orange, or pinkishness (when in writing, of course! chromatography is a different matter :)). Or a light pink with no magenta, like the retired Benzaiten for example.
