Thanks as usual for the exemplary review.

Can anyone provide a side by side between Petrol Blue and Leo Tolstoy LE from a couple of years ago?  I bought a bottle of it on a whim when I was in NYC at Fountain Pen Hospital and looked at FPH's swab book, and I rather like it (even though I don't normally care for the color range).

Question: would you describe this color as a blue black that shades teal, or a teal blue?

I’m trying to figure out if this is a good alternative to my work blue blacks, which alternate between Noodlers Aircorp Blue Black, Noodlers Legal Lapis, and Private Reserve Ebony Blue. All of those are blue blacks with shades of green or teal under the right light.

I’ve never been a Montblanc ink fan. But this one may have promise

I wouldn't call this a blue-black, it's too light for that. Teal blue is a better description. Noodler's Bad Blue Heron could be  a substitute for this one. A bit less teal, especially in swabs, but in writing they look very similar - and you will get more ink for your money.

Thank you for posting this review of Montblanc Petrol Blue.


When I visited a local Montblanc boutique, there was one bottle of this ink.

First off.. amazing review! The first time I saw the color Ku-Jaku came to mind right away. I wonder if Mont Blanc just paid pilot for the color cus it looks like a dead ringer to me.
