CONS
  • The metal ring around the plastic plug in the cap sometimes lifts off and has to be pushed back into place. This doesn't affect how the bottle opens, but every now and then, I have to make sure it's aligned.
  • Low sheen.
OVERALL

I'm a fan of Graf Von Faber-Castell inks - I really like the heavy bottles. They don't tip easily when filling from, and they look really elegant. They're on the expensive side, but there's a lot of ink in there. Midnight Blue is a lovely blue black - perhaps one of my preferred blue blacks.

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.
