Montblanc inks hold a special place in my heart, as it was the first FP ink I ever purchased, so of course I was thrilled to hear that they had a new blue coming. I have a few of their other blue tones, BMW Blue, JFK, and Miles Davis Blue and they do not disappoint so I went in with high hopes for this one.
This time around Montblanc decided to give this limited ink a 50ML bottle instead of the 30ML they usually use.
That size up is amazing! But also comes at a price, previous LE inks have been $19.00 in the USA, while this version comes in at $39.00.
For this review I decided to ink up my new Pilot Custom 823 with FA nib which also came in today ^_^.
Not much going on in the time-lapse, but there is a beautiful range of color in this ink. The shading during normal writing is amazing, and with the FA nib I experienced a sort of sheeny outline as soon here. I enhanced the color a bit for IG purposes, but the variation is the same.
This color reminded me a lot of Lamy Pacific Blue.
No regret ordering multiple bottles of this one! Speaking of which, one will be a future giveaway ^_^, but for some reason only one of my bottles shipped so far so it will be at a later date.
It is not too late to join the #hipposquad! Due to numerous requests we have opened up late pledging and add-ons to existing pledges at www.hipponoto.com. We are also accepting PayPal via the link above. We will be closing orders for the launch shipment on 5/8/17.
A heartfelt thank you to all for supporting this project, it would not be the success it is without you! ❤
I leave you with this preview photo of a super cute notebook I will review in the future.
