Montblanc Meisterstuck Blue Hour: Twilight Blue Fountain Pen Ink Review

Phew... just typing that post title was strenuous. Here is my review of Montblanc's new Meisterstuck Blue Hour: Twilight Blue ink. Why they chose to give it two names is beyond me, but hey. I just like saying MBMBHTB for short. :) I like this ink, but I wasn't really blown away by it. For the price I paid ($16), I'd rather just pay a couple more dollars for a 50ml. bottle of Iroshizuku Tsuki-Yo on Amazon. It can routinely be found there for around $20 a bottle, and you get almost twice as much ink. To my eyes, I can hardly tell a difference between the two inks, anyways. Plus, the Iroshizuku bottles are better to fill pens from (and look cooler!)

I meant to post this about a week ago, but the weather has been so cloudy and rainy that there has not been enough sunshine to take any relatively decent photos when I get home from work. I finally caught a few brief moments of sunshine this morning before the storms roll in again and snapped a few photos. One of my good penpals (and fellow blogger), Laura, has also posted a great review of this pen that I will link at the bottom of this page. I highly recommend checking her blog out. Her posts are very thorough and detailed and she updates the page quite regularly. I hope you enjoy the review!

p.s., I should mention that the pics make the ink actually look blue, but in person it looks more like a light blue-ish green or teal. I'll add a few more pics and a scan soon.

  1. Great review! I loved seeing it from your Montblanc with a medium nib.

    I'll admit I prefer Blue Hour Twilight Blue ink to Tsuki-yo, but Tsuki-yo has a much better name.
