Ink Shot Review: Franklin-Christoph Midnight Emerald @1901FC

I've used a few Franklin-Christoph inks to date, and I think they are not nearly popular enough. Here's why: Midnight Emerald.

CONS

  • Only available at Franklin-Christoph! I guess that's not a huge deal...
  • If the traditional bottle gets sloshed around, ink can get into the threads of the cap, and then transfer to the threads on the mouth of the bottle, and it can cause very minor ink leakage. Try to keep the bottle steady. I occasionally clean out the threads (I also have to do this for other ink bottles, so it's not exclusive to these, but it is something to be aware of). 

OVERALL

What a beautiful color! I don't see this one enough on social media, which is a shame because it's really lovely. It makes me think of an emerald with glittering edges (sheen), but also of a deep Caribbean sea. What a treat! $12.50 for 60 ml of this, in a glass bottle (if you opt for the traditional bottle) is a great price for a well-behaved, good looking ink.
