Thanks for another clear review. This color looks a tad greenish on my monitor. Is there a hint of green in this blue?
May you have pens you enjoy, with plenty of paper and ink. :)

Please use only my FPN name "Gran" in your posts. Thanks very much!

Yes, there's a tiny hint of green in it.

Is this a new boutique ink? Or is it widely available (and I've missed seeing references to it)?

Thanks,
Ann

I got this ink from an office supplies store in Taiwan a couple of years ago. It wasn't too expensive, ~USD$9 for a 75ml bottle; the glass bottle and the packaging looks really nice. The label marked "Made in Germany", along with Dunhill's address in London. I guess it is a boutique ink aim at the fashion crowd. The ink itself is okay but I have a mixed feeling about the color; sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't.

I have never seen these inks in the US. I wonder about its availability in Europe.

An interesting blue. I'd like to try it, but I haven't seen any Dunhill inks at my usual sources (even ones that have some of the Dunhill pens).

I've also got a Dunhill ink bottle, but I find the opening to be really small, around 1.5cm, so it's hard to fit bigger pens into it.
