It seems that in 2010 Montblanc changed the manufacturer of their ink as well as the design of the bottle. The company’s issued a new, larger (60 ml vs 50 ml) bottle. To be honest I find Montblanc bottle not only nice but also practical, much better than Iroshizuku or Sailor.
The new colours launched in 2010 include:
- Burgundy Red
- Irish Green
- Lavender Purple
- Mystery Black
- Midnight Blue
- Oyster Grey
- Royal Blue
- Toffee Brown
Midnight Blue is supposed to be a permanent ink with ferro-gallic content. Ferro-gallic ink typically flows onto the paper in a lighter shade than becomes darker when it dries. I like the color and the general performance of the ink. The colour ranges from a blue-black to an almost black.
