Review of Montblanc Pink cartridge.
MB Pink is a pretty bright pink that has good flow and offers nice shading - some on copy, more on good - along with oodles of gold sheen. The ink starts right up in both tested pens even after many days of just sitting. The color is darker and redder in the wetter, thicker line of the Pelikano due to more sheen being deposited; it was darker initially in the VFM, too, but once the ink that had sat in the feed gave way to fresh ink from the cart, the color brightened considerably.
There were the merest hints of the sheen on the copy paper but the BnR showed a fair amount from the Sheaffer and copious amounts from the Pelikano (rather like the Lamy Coral in my P460). The color is similar to the Sailor Clear Candy Pink; the Sailor is brighter than the MB in the CC MF pen but slightly darker than then the MB in the Waterman JIF fine, again due to more sheen from the wetter JIF.
Here's the scan of the review form:
Here's a crop of the sheen from the P67 on the BnR (lol, just noticed I wrote P64 in the sample):
And from the Sheaffer; the sheen is heavier on the first words as the pen had been sitting, the next lines are more representative. As well, the color in the photos, especially here from the Sheaffer is more accurate than the scan.
Would I use this on a regular basis? Hmm. I find the Sailor a bit more 'happy' (especially in the lighter line of the very fine CC pen) and I'm curious to perhaps try the MB in a fine nib, like a JIF. For now, I'll leave it in the Sheaffer - this was the one I thought was going to be a sparkly bright red that turned out to be more of a dusty rose color, which actually complements the ink quite well. Serendipity at work.
