  1. (Another quickie review, being largely a by-product of my checking how the EF nib on a Delike Alpha performs.) Colour: I suppose the closest colour of ink I have to it is Diamine Evergreen but, at least in daylight, Monteverde Olivine is slightly more yellow (and Diamine Evergreen has an obvious red sheen). Feathering: None observed on the Rhodia paper I used. Ghosting and bleed-through: Not from normal writing, but several passes with a soaked cotton swab or a wet nib can cause some ghosting and even bleed-through. Drying time: Quick enough. No smearing after 15 seconds

    Ink Review: Monteverde Horizon Blue

    Monteverde's revamped line of inks recently got my attention for their comprehensive lineup of clear, distinct hues, as well as good value. A 90ml bottle can be had for about $13-$15 USD from the better known online retailers in the United States, making it a very good deal. Monteverde touts their "ITF Technology". From Monteverde's promotional material, here's how it claims to benefit us writers: At my recent visit to the 2017 LA Pen Show, Monteverde gave a free bottle of Malibu Blue ink to all show attendees. A company representative had all their inks available for sampling with swabs, a

    Monteverde Canyon Rust

    Monteverde is part of Yafa company. Some time ago the company offered wide array of new inks with Ink ITF™ - new Ink Treatment Formula that's supposed to drastically improve ink-flow quality, extend cap-off time and improve ink drying time on paper. After trying two inks I can agree it's not just marketing - the inks behave very well. Bottle The inks can be bought in 30 (and 90) ml bottle. The bottle is made of lass, has simple design and id pretty functional - stable and with wide neck allowing to fill quite comfortably (as long as there's more than 60 % of the ink content
  4. I ordered the Teal for this year, and I figured why not get last year too. Here is my review of last year's DC Supershow Blue from Monteverde. My initial impression is that it is simply another iteration of Horizon Blue. You can see from the comparison that they are very close in color. This color was just as well behaved as the Horizon blue and had just as good of flow. It didn't feather on any paper I have used so far. I really like the color but I do feel like I doubled up on colors since I already have Horizon Blue. On the bright side this may also be another one of those colors that

  6. Since succumbing to the Hobonichi Cousin last year, I have been enjoying matching my fountain pen ink colour to that of the daily pages. The Japanese versions of this planner has lovely, slightly dusty, faded vintage colours which change for each month. The whole page is printed in that colour - grid, Japanese quote, date and day markets etc. So I thought it would be fun to write using a matching ink - a great excuse for exploring some of the glorious colours now available and a built in excuse for changing inks regularly. This idea was inspired by a blog I saw (sorry, can't remember who) wher

    Reviews For New Monteverde Sweet Life Inks?

    Anyone have got their hands on the new Monteverde Sweet Life inks? Really interested in seeing the impressions on the Blue Velvet, Iced Cookie and Chocolate Pudding if possible. Thanks!

    Monteverde Copper Noir - Wow

    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)
  9. I just got this ink. I didn't get to go to DC, but really liked the look of the color when I first saw it. I kinda like Teals and kinda don't. I'm better when they are on the bluer side. This one is about right in the middle. You can see this from my ink sample paper. I think I still like the color of Ku-Jaku more, but this is starting grow on me. One thing I noticed with this ink was that, depending on the pen I used, it did shade quite a bit and looked really cool. It seemed to me like the finer point better flowing pen allowed for more shading than just a wider nib would. I tested
  10. I have a bunch of Monteverde inks purchased and as of yet untested, so on a whim I inked up my Pilot Kakuno with it. To my surprise, I actually got my Con-70 to fill up properly (this is only the second time I've ever used it)! I got so excited I wrote another 5 page review. I kept the scans messy because I didn't colour correct anything and I find leaving in the edges and bookmarks and stuff helps a little bit with the automatic colour correction. There's no pictures at this time because I have no light! We will see what tomorrow brings to the potato camera. Which is not much because t

    Four Finalized Ink Mixes

    These have been sitting in my pens and bottles for months by thus point without any issues. No solid chunks, no odors or bubbling, no color loss. I especially like the golden brown and purple. I call these colors: -Golden Sands -Tanzanite -Ocean Void -Oasis (Instead of Deep Teal) Anyone like any one of them in particular?

  13. Monteverde Invincia - Stealth Black (M Nib) Review To start this review off, keep in mind it is my first review; and as all reviews, is at least somewhat subjective. Also, for perspective, I have used this and 4 other fountain pens, which are: Pilot Varsity Lamy Al-Star Lamy Safari Conklin Duragraph and I have been using this pen for around 1 month. Overall Appearance: Measurements: 5.35" / 136mm long capped 5.30" / 134.7mm long uncapped 6.10" / 154mm long posted 1.10" / 28mm long nib 0.55" / 14mm body diameter 0.35" / 8.9mm grip diameter 1.40 oz/ 39g weight overall Monteverd
  14. The day before yesterday, I received a shipment of four Monteverde inks, in the 80 ml bottles, from a reliable vendor. I have gotten accustomed to opening new bottles of ink to check for problems. To my surprise, the bottle of Motivation Orange contained a large amount of goopy contamination. There was no unusual odor, unlike the problem with Montblanc yellow ink several years ago. The vendor has already dispatched a replacement bottle, but if you have this ink, you should check it. As with the Montblanc ink, it may not be an isolated problem.
  15. Recently, I got myself a bottle of Monteverde Fire Opal - because I liked the colour, but also because I hoped that it might finally prove to be that rare ink in this particular colour range to be free of nib crud issues. Alas, I have now found that it suffers from the same sort of nib crud that users of similar-coloured inks like Diamine Ancient Copper will be familiar with. When used in pens with a less-than-perfect cap seal, the usual frothy crud builds up. The same happens during long writing sessions - crud gradually builds up along the length of the nib slit and the nib-section and nib

  21. At Goulet Pens, from now until the end of the year, if you purchase one of a selection of a number of pens, you may pick out a 90 ml bottle of Monteverde ink for free. I just bought a $20 Online fountain one (which I had gone there to buy, anyway) and received a $15 bottle of a nice red Monteverde ink at no cost. In the end, I paid $20 for the pen and ink, plus the standard $6.95 for shipping -not a bad deal. On another order, I'll grab a few other items -again, things I'd buy at Goulet anyway- to make the shipping fee even more worthwhile. A couple of pen and ink orders could settle Chri

  23. What I mean is what pen popped into your head today randomly out of your collection to use that you may have forgotten about? For me, it was a Conklin Duraflex in black with rose gold trim. I was reading about the new Monteverde Monza with an Omniflex nib and the Conklin jumped into my head! I havent used that pen in months! Its an awesome pen! Lets ink this thing for work tomorrow! Does this happen to everyone else or do I have a problem that requires counseling?
