White Forest ink and a Star Walker

I'm still struggling to write especially on the weeknights. Just no time or energy. I made these Christmas cards last weekend and I only put them in the mail today. I didn't want to just send blank cards, I also wanted to write something to each recepient to give it a personal touch. Well I finally stayed up past my bedtime last night and wrote short notes to enclose with the cards.

At a past Christmas a coworker gave me a bottle of Mont Blanc White Forest scented ink. I don't get why they call it white when the ink is green, maybe there is snow? Anyway I've been seeing a few posts on Twitter about green inks, and this is the only green ink I have, and it's a Christmas White Forest it is!

Since it was Mont Blanc ink I thought I would use it in a Mont Blanc pen. I remember liking how my Star Walker wrote so that's the pen. It's a pretty cool looking pen. Their famous snow cap emblem seems to be floating in space.

This pen does not have a flexible nib so I don't worry about line variation.

I like it!

Oh I still have my Namiki Falcon filled with Irhoshizuku Yama-budo ink I still want to use for holiday writing, but it looks like it will have to wait until after Christmas.

So who wants a New Years card?


  1. Very nice. Nice pen, nice ink and nice writing. Happy Holidays!!

  2. Again, I love your blog. This is good stuff! Thank you!

  3. I too love this ink and prefer it to any of my Diamine greens. I do suggest shaking the bottle slightly before filling as the bottom tends to settle and get thick especially if stored in a cool location.
    Otherwise it is a perfect Christmas green.
