The latest release from Montblanc. It's orange orange. Not too brown, not too red. Normal Montblanc flow: not dry at all, but not too wet either.

I love the doodles.

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

Be still my ♥. That full page 💟. Love the pixel dinosaur. Thank you for yet another great review. How does it compare to KWZI Grapefruit or Iroshizuku Fuyu Gaki?

Just got a bottle after reading some reviews. I'd noted some comments about the ink drying out and causing some hard starts. Inked up a Twsbi 580 1.5 stub and had a play when it arrived. The next day had a hard start, not something I've experienced with previous inks in the pen.

Grapefruit has much more red. I don't remember what Fuyu-gaki looks like anymore.

Thank you for the review. :) I haven't decided whether I should buy this one or not yet. I now like it more than Caran d'Ache Electric Orange though. :huh:

I can't say I experienced this with it but I've only had it in a couple of pens so far; both medium nibs.

I've had no problems with hard starts or drying out in my Pelikan 320 with medium nib. It's the perfect ink for this stunning little orange pen.

Dear Lgsoltek, this is an interesting ink study! I especially like the fully inked paper which give an amazing colour impression! Uff! Summer?

Well I suppose it has something to do with the recent high temperature (35+ ℃). But this orange ink does crystallise into nib crud very easily, regardless of the temperature. The high temperature might have just made it worse.

I always have the opposite impression with normal inks - i. e. inks without glimmer and shimmer they behave not nice for the most of the time especially in summer -, the ink flow is superbe when temperatures are high... at least in my pens.

Haven't seen any nib crud on my M320.

Jesus that solid orange page almost gave me a seizure.

 

I like that ink a lot more than I thought I would. the more I look at it... Yeah, I'm digging it. And I hate orange.

 

I like colors that have gradient shading, like apache sunset. Most "shading" inks just have two tones, one washed out, one saturated. I hate orange inks, and this is kinda doing it for me

 

Too pricey though for 30ml. I'd go buy a bottle right now if it was the same size/price as a standard MB bottle. I've been meaning to buy more MB inks, lavender purple is just lovely.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
