Mont Blanc: Royal Blue

2024-03-04 00:00

I have never really used any Mont Blanc products, because most of them are stupid expensive. Like ridiculous expensive. Where it is so far beyond what I’d ever consider that I just start laughing whenever I find myself looking at their pens etc.


I decided to check out one of their inks a while back, and I ordered a bottle of Royal Blue”.

Interesting enough their ink is really cheap.

I like the color, it isn’t anything amazing, but I have had a lot blues that are much worse than this. The ink is a little bit dryer than I prefer, at least in the Pilot Custom 823 I’ve been testing it in. Much better in the Lamy 2000 I also inked up at the same time though. So might just be that the dry pen and drier ink combination that rubs me the wrong way; as always.

I really like their ink bottle design though. Different look and interesting take on how to make it possible to ink up pens from a bottle as it gets empty.
