I recently purchased the full set of the Monteverde Noir inks and am slowly trying them out. I am happy with the colours I have tried so far, although I found Rose Noir to be drier than the others. I am surprised, but so far Copper Noir is my favourite. While I like darker orange inks such as PR Orange Crush, I tend to prefer muddy greens, blues and purples.  However, I am blown away by this ink and just had to share it.  (The paper is Rhodia Dots)

Nice ink colour. Does this ink stain transparent pens?

Thank you for sharing a very beautiful ink with us!

 

I have been very happy with all the Monteverde inks since they expanded the line; I have even convinced myself I am content with their Moonstone ink instead of the new Montblanc "Swan Feather" ink.  It is a pleasure to find such attractive & usable inks @ reasonable prices.

I agree. A few months back I received a small bottle of Copper Noir by mistake with a Goulet order, and I put it away with no intention of using it. I had an orange phase, but that faded long ago. However, one evening while enjoying a whisky and playing with my pens (to each their own...), I tried Coppe Noir for a spell - and loved it! It seems to me to strike a wonderful balance between the colourfully avantgarde and the tolerably different - in other Words, perfection for someone wishing to get noticed in the office, but not be judged non compos mentis.

Lovely rich hue with great shading. Will keep this one in mind.

I'd be interested to see this in a side-by-side with Diamine Ancient Copper (which gets crud that builds up on the nib) and also with Diamine Anniversary Terra Cotta (an ink I really like).

Thanks for the review.  Some of the other Monteverde inks look quite interesting as well.

I don’t know jchch1950, maybe someone else can illuminate us. This is my first fill and it is in a Black Pelikan. The ink window is transparent green and seems fine.

Agree. I am a fan of using surprising inks in unexpected situations.

  

Love the Noir range, especially Ocean, Rose & Copper.

 
I think Ocean Noir is beautiful. Rose Noir is interesting but a little dry. Next time I will try it in a wet pen.

I have both those inks and will do a side by side comparison.

It really looks good - it will be joining Rose Noir and Ocean Noir. :)

The more I look at these, the more I’m convincing myself to get this ink set. Thanks for sharing your experiences with us.

Hopefully you can see the differences and similarities below. Ancient Copper is clearly darker than the other 2. It is also a richer colour with a definite "coppery" sheen. Terracotta and Copper Noir are similar colours according to the swab. But when writing with them Copper Noir is more orange and has more shading while Terracotta has a bit of sheen. 

 

I had forgotten about Ancient Copper and although somewhat troublesome, it is a stunning ink in a wet pen.

Here is a close up of Terracotta (left) and Copper Noir (right). The different pens seem to be affecting the appearance.

Oh, interesting! Ancient copper shades more for me, so I'm definitely interested in something that shades even more than that. Thank you for he comparison picture!

Yes, thank you for that.  On my screen the swab of Copper Noir looks a little redder than Terra Cotta.  So while I may try a sample of it at some point in future, I suspect I will not like it quite as well.  Although the shading in a stub nib is pretty spectacular looking...

Do you notice any sheen with this ink? The base colour looks to me quite like a slightly more red Colorverse Golden Record, but what makes Golden Record my favourite is the hint of silver sheen to it! Trying desperately to find a replacement that isn’t a limited edition 15 ml bottle...

I have only used it in 1 pen so far and no sheen was visible, sadly.

I have just bought a bottle of copper noir and am very taken with it. I have seen a couple of mentions that it comes in cartridges too, but I can't seem to find any for sale. Does anyone know where I can get some? Or are the statements not correct?

Peter, Arcadian, that makes three of us. For me it’s usually a Very Old Barton Bottled in Bond, which is getting tough to find outside of Kentucky.

Barkingpig, I agree completely on Monteverde’s new inks. Excellent quality at a reasonable price. This copper noir reminds me of KWZ monarch.
