I have eight different Monteverde inks in my collection, and they all perform well.  I think the reformulated Monteverde ink line isn't getting enough attention.

Looks to have nice shading, but otherwise not a color for me.

Thanks for the review nonetheless.

Looks good to me. Unfortunately, I now think I'll be forced to order all of them.

 

Drat!

I just ordered this ink, plus Amethyst and Jade Noir, because PenChalet is having a buy 2 Monteverde 30 ml bottles, and get one free sale. Plus, the cart did something weird--in my favor. Don't know if it was because I bought a pen with it (a blue Monza), or what, but I got another 10% off the ink and pens on top of that!

 

So I added a bottle of Caran d'Ache Infinite Gray to see what would happen--and it qualified for the 10% off, too. PC already had the CdA ink on sale for nearly $10 off. Between the sale and the discount, that brought the price down from $43 retail to $29 and change. Woo hoo!

 

And I got free shipping?

 

Score!

Congratulations on your experience @ Pen Chalet!

 

I find EVERY transaction I have made with them has been "in MY favor;"  their listed prices are always favorable & their frequently offered discounts usually make these even more favorable.  Their shipments are well packed, dispatched promptly & reach me quickly.  I have NEVER been disappointed in any transaction with them.

Not affiliated with them, either, only a happy customer who usually does at least 4-5 orders with them every year, and has always had great experiences with them. But then most of the FP boutiques out there have outstanding service--PC, Goulet, Vanness, Anderson, iPenstore, Jetpens, even Tokyo Pen Shop and the Franklin-Christoph online store. I love doing business with all of them over Amazon for that very reason

 

Businesses in a niche market like this one die without great customer service.

Forgot to come back to mention my experience with the ink.

 

Can we say L-O-V-E?

 

Sent a letter to my mom written with it, and it was a huge hit with her, because she loves all of these autumn type of colors.
