I’ve had a lot of requests recently for a review of Krishna Moonview, and a reader was very kind and sent me a sample to play with. There are so many sheeny blues out there, but I like seeing which ones perform best.
Moonview is a medium blue with a ton of sheen.
In large swabs you don’t see much blue, just the pink sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 40 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and bleeding in the larger nib sizes.
I used a Kaweco Sport in Serenity Blue with a fine nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had wet but sticky flow.
Overall, it’s another monster sheener. At this point, I don’t need another medium blue super sheeny ink, but it’s another option. It performs better than Organics Studio Nitrogen, but not as well as Diamine Maureen.
