Midnight Blue – Graf von Faber-Castell

Graf von Faber-Castell was founded in 1761 and developed into the major manufacturer of wood-cased pencils. With time they started to offer much broader range of products. Few years ago company’s introduced six inks. Recently they’ve added three new colors to the line.

  1. Carbon Black
  2. Cobalt Blue
  3. Deep Sea Green
  4. Garnet Red
  5. Hazelnut Brown
  6. Midnight Blue
  7. Moss Green
  8. Royal Blue
  9. Stone Grey

Another one of three new colors is the line is Midnight Blue. As I started to develop some taste in blue/blacks I was eager to try this one. I’ve tried it and I’m not satisfied. The ink, contrary to Deep Sea Green, behaves rather well but is really, really boring. The lubrication is average, saturation is average, color is generic. Only bottlem company’s logo and price are premium. Bottle content is average. Graf von Faber-Castell is going iin wrong direction :/

  1. Thank you for your review! I really needed a detailed review of this ink!
    I was actually planning to buy it because I’m looking for a work safe ink (but not just a plain black or a dull blue) with permanent qualities that I can also find in international cartridges in case I run out of in the middle of a busy shift.
    I had really high hopes for this one. :/
    Any suggestions for a replacement?
