Montblanc owner and lover

Here is (if my picture show...) a little review (my first one) of the new Graf von Faber Castell ink: Hazelnut brown,selled in 75ml inkpot for 30€ so in a range of price comparable to the iroshizuku (less expensive tough).

Oh euuh sorry for my awful handwriting,i wrote this at 2 AM in my bed and i'm a lefty so....If needed ask me and i'll type the text.

Nice review! :-) That brown is exactly what I would expect from something called hazelnut. It would be interesting to see how it does in a flex pen, since I think that really tends to bring out the shading in any ink.

I like that shade! The only brown I have right now is some Private Reserve Sepia.

Ditto on the expected color of an ink named Hazelnut. Great first review! Thank you.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Crass, looks almost like a historical manuscript number. E.g. like Noodler's Galileo Manuscript Brown (an FPN exclusive to be sure but I don't know if it's still available).

Hello. Just the colour I was trying to describe. I tried mixing my M Blanc Toffee w/ a bit of distilled H2O, but just could not pin it down. Thank you so much, LeRoy

Thanks for the review, and a great first one at that. Been debating between getting a bottle of this or Montblanc Toffee Brown - might go with the MB first, but will definitely get a sample of Hazelnut.
