Ink Shot Review: @Montblanc_World William Shakespeare Velvet Red @couronneducomte

This ink was all over the place - Montblanc seemed unable to supply it properly. I don't know what the deal was, but I was finally able to secure a bottle through La Couronne du Comte... only to finish up my review and find it's no longer available on their webshop. So, I present this review of a beautiful color but I silently curse Montblanc for making this one so weird to acquire.

PROS 

  • Shades well.
  • Beautiful deep red.
  • Bottle has a wide mouth that is easy to fill even larger pens from.
  • A pretty safe red ink.
  • Well behaved - no funny business with feathering or anything.
  • A great ink to use if you love Shakespeare, obviously!

CONS

  • Montblanc typically does funny things with supplying their special and limited edition inks. 
  • Not an inexpensive ink.
  • Red inks can stain or be difficult to clean out of finicky pens. I haven't had any issues, but I always leave a warning with red and purple inks, or super saturated inks.

OVERALL

It doesn't really matter what I think now, does it? Hee hee! Anyway, it's a really nice color. A deep, luscious red that reminds me of cake but it's not supposed to be about cake. Shades well, pretty well behaved, especially for being in the red category. If you find a bottle, I'd suggest you snap it up!






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.
