Ink Shot Review: Montblanc for Unicef Ink @AppelboomLaren @Montblanc_World

Thanks to Appelboom for sending this bottle of ink pretty much as soon as they were launched! I've shared the ink in use on my Instagram but here's the actual review!
The colour of the Montblanc for Unicef collection is inspired by the Unicef blue. It’s a special packaging with the printed pattern designed by Montblanc and inspired by the first letters children learn at school in the six most used alphabets in the world.

  • Pretty bottle!

  • Easy to clean.

CONS

  • Larger bottle of ink costs quite a bit.
  • The color looks best in wide, wet nibs. Perhaps not outstanding for a fine writer!
  • Nice color but it's not unique - there are similar shades of this blue out there. 

OVERALL

I like this kind of blue - it's a light turquoise that shades well and looks great in wide, wet nibs, which comprises most of my pen and nib hoard! Montblanc inks are not inexpensive but I like them a lot - they clean well, behave well, and look pretty good.

CONS

  • When your bottle gets low on ink, it's hard to fill from. 
  • Some bleed through with wet use.

OVERALL

Honestly, when I first looked at the Diamine Flowers set and compared it to the Music set, I was expecting the Music set to be rather dull and boring. I was totally proven wrong. These colors are really nice, and look spectacular in wide calligraphy-type nibs. With fine nibs, they don't stand out so much, but of course, I more often than not use wet, wide writers. This emerald green is a beauty.
