Fresh from production we have received our first delivery of the new Montblanc Legend of Zodiacs ink: Lucky Yellow

 

Lucky-Yellow.jpg

 

Lucky Yellow is a warm yellow ink with a bit of shading if used with a broader nib. It is quite light and might be difficult

to read if used with a fine nib or on colored paper. Our direct comparison with the Montblanc Golden Yellow ink shows

quite well, that the later is a bit darker and more to the orange side of yellow. 

 

The ink comes in the now typical 50ml ink bottles and costs € 35.- (in Germany). 

 

Written on white paper and with a broad nib we like it. It reminds us of a ray of sunlight and it brightens everything written with it. 

 

Best regards

Fritz Schimpf

Pass.  It's too light to be legible, if the scan/photo is any indication.

I don't see a use for this in writing as it'd be too difficult to read.

Why anyone would write with yellow ink is beyond me.

Well I have a bottle of De Atramentis Gold, which I like a lot.  But it's a lot darker than this -- it's dark enough to be readable.  

 But really yellow inks?  Not so much....  :(
