PROS
  • Great shading - from sky blue to a deep blue. Quite lovely.
  • Work appropriate, safe blue.
  • Looks best in wet, broad nibs (in my opinion, anyway). 
  • Doesn't wash away completely.

CONS
  • A pretty normal blue, if used with a fine/medium nib.
OVERALL

Although they're a bit pricy, I'm a fan of Montblanc inks - they're well-behaved and are easy to clean. This is another one I enjoy. I prefer the Blue Hour Twilight Blue, but I think this Sky Blue is really nice.

I received this item free of charge for the purposes of this review. I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion.
