    Default Montblanc Glacier Blue

    The latest SE blue ink, and I like it a lot. I can't find any existing MB ink that's close in colour, though there are a couple of close cousins from other brands.

    Writing samples on TR 52g
    Swatches on Exacompta 205g
    Wet in wet on 350g watercolour paper
    Quite an interesting Chroma (but no water resistance at all)

    This one's a keeper and will probably need a spare or two!

    Great review, mizgeorge! This one looks like a color I am going to have to buy. So much for my ink moratorium . . . but more about that later.

    Thank you for the review. I'm not sure why but I wasn't instantly attracted to this colour despite the fact that I'm usually a blue fan.

    Yep. It is all your fault, mizgeorge! I just ordered 3 bottles. They were on "sale" at a price I likely won't see again for a while.

    You're welcome I've been using it a lot this past week, and I'm still really enjoying it.

    Three bottles. Don't tell me you write those famous reports with Fp?

    No, not the actual reports, but all of the notes taken for the reports. For each project, I keep a bound notebook like a CD Premium notebook - A5 size - and most of them are full of notes by the time the project is completed. Right now I have 6 projects going simultaneously, which is typical for me. I used to use just copy paper on a clipboard, but that got to be too cumbersome and I got tired of chasing after pages that blew away when I was in the field.

    Oh that does look good! Do you have an ink swab of Iroshizuku Tsuki-Yo to compare against by any chance? It looks kind of similar to that, I might like it and pick up a bottle. Thank you!

    It doesn't have the red sheen that the Iroshizuku has. I know my daughter has 'borrowed' my bottle of Tsuki-yo, but I'm pretty sure I have it swatched, so I'll have a look for it to photograph side by side.
