So about 10 years ago I thought montblanc ink was the best, although back then I had no idea what makes an ink "good" or "bad", overall the 8 or so inks I have performed well and i had no complaints but pretty much never use them since the colors are not my taste anymore.
Fast forward to today, my most recent MB ink purchase is royal blue which I think is a fantastic blue and performs very well in the pen; the problem I am noticing is that is smudges DAYS after being laid down on paper. As a very primitive control, Pilot Blue Black ink, on the same papers, dries to be completely smudge proof in 30-60 seconds max. Has anyone observed this about mb ink? What exactly causes this? How much does the ambient temp and humidity affect this property of inks?
thanks for reading
