Midnight Blue – Montblanc

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:

  1. Burgundy Red
  2. Irish Green
  3. Lavender Purple
  4. Mystery Black
  5. Midnight Blue
  6. Oyster Grey
  7. Royal Blue
  8. 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.
