I like reviewing old limited edition inks so I can find good alternatives. A while ago a pen friend sent me a sample of Montblanc Pink, a special edition ink from 2015, and I’ve been waiting to give it a go. Let’s take a look!
Pink is a pretty medium pink, almost a bubblegum.
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 in the large nib sizes, and a little bit of bleeding, so it did ok, but not great on cheap paper.
I used a TWSBI Eco Pastel Pink with a fine nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, I would use Lamy Vibrant Pink, Taccia Momo Pink or Diamine Cerise for currently available alternatives.
