Montblanc Royal Blue

Montblanc Royal Blue

I would think of this as one from the brighter lineages of royal blue (which, as a color, I tend to expect to be darker). That said, it is the kind of azure blue with a touch of purple which maintains its qualification as a royal blue. It is also good to note that it does have a shiny purple sheen in wet writing, which adds character to this offering (though it never fails to remind me of the purplish sheen common to ballpoint inks too…)

Shading – Limited
Bleedthrough – None
Feathering – None
Sheen – Shiny purple on wet writers
Smear Resistance – It flees at the sight of water
Drip Resistance – Where did the ink go? (seriously, look at the scan)
Flow – Good/Normal
