Montblanc Midnight Blue Ink Review


I don't understand myself sometimes. I love blue black and dark blue ink. Montblanc Midnight Blue fits in that range and I should like it.

I don't.

This is where the not understanding myself comes in to play. I desperately want to like this ink. I have tried it in different pens and different nibs and I find it to be too black. In wider nibs like the 1.5 mm stub in my TWSBI Mini the blue comes out but in the finer nibs I use on a daily basis it is too dark.

Why can't I just consider this a black ink, use it as such, and be done with it? Because it says BLUE in the name and I can't get past that! I'm certifiable, I know. I can't help it

Please tell me I'm not alone.
