Montblanc Web Grey

Montblanc regularly intoduces new and pricey LE/SE inks.

I’d like to try more of them but because of high cost of a bottle, it’s not possible.

As I like grey inks, I decided to try this one.


50 ml glass bottle that comes in a stylish packaging. It looks nice on the shelf. It’s solid and ergonomic.

As you’ll see in a second, it’s not most saturated grey ink on the market. It leans toward puple just a little bit, but has a distinct silver tone to it. I have to say I enjoy the hue, although in drier nibs the line will lack strength. The flow and behavious are decent.
