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'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?

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.

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.
