All,

 

Just curious which inks you prefer for your wetter writing 149?

 

Have a medium nibbed modern that has extremely generous flow and was curious if anyone had found an ink solution...

 

BTW, using J. Herbin Perle Noir now...

 

Thanks!

...or jump into the deep end of the pool with Emerald of Chivor - a wet & wonderful way to enjoy a wet writing Montblanc!

Ah, it occurred to me I phrased my question poorly...

 

What inks have you found to TAME your wet 149er?   

 

The flow is overly generous, and I would be curious if anyone has found an ink to balance....

Montblanc Permanent Blue.  I have it in my 146 and it loves it!  Lovely shading and well behaved.  This ink tames the wildest beast.

My 149 is partial to Defoe Green. Great shading with a wet writer.

 

Regards,

John.

Try Pelikan 4001.

 

+1 - it's the only ink I can use in my 136 that keeps it from turning into a paintbrush...

Sailor Oku-yama is a great one for the Christmas cards. For me, anyway.

Thanks for the tread and suggestions. My 149s are all wet writers too. The Montblanc inks I've tried were too watery for my taste. Midnight Blue could be an option but I wouldn't even use it in a medium-nib149. 4001 inks are drier, so I might give them a try.

All, a bit more - it was suggested to me that Lamy and Waterman inks are also somewhat drier...

 

Going to try Lamy as I don't mind the blue/black color...  (I have many of these, just haven't used them as the colors are unexciting...)
