A key has been added, written on Clairefontaine paper, with a number of different inks for reference.
Standard Disclaimer: Image provided only to give a general sense of the color. The vibrance and nuance are typically lost when an ink is digitized.
When I write a review, I first focus on color, and award an ink 0 to 100 based upon that alone, separate from other considerations. I then deduct points from the color score for defects (ie: lack of flow, creep, etc), to arrive at an overall score.
Montblanc British Racing Green is an appealing shade of dark green, with perhaps a hint of tan. It is what I hoped Noodler's Zhivago would be. Shading is present, but not pronounced.
Ultimately, it's a bit drab.
Color Score = 80
MB Racing Green is one of the more well-behaved inks I've used, and as such, deductions aren't applicable.
MB Racing Green is a fast drier.
In general, it is a very well behaved ink, cleans up easily, etc.
Overall Score = 87 out of 100
