We are near the end of new releases week, but we're not quite done, so today's ink is Montblanc Unicef Blue. Anderson Pens was very kind and sent a sample over for review.
Unicef is a bright blue with some shading, a great color for summer.
There is a little bit of pink sheen on the edges of the swab.
One thing I do want to mention about this ink is the cost. A 50ml bottle of ink is $43. It does come in a beautiful bottle, but it is on the expensive side.
Dry time: 40 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show though: Medium
On 20 pound copy paper there was just a little bit of feathering but other than that the ink behaved well.
I used a medium Pelikan M800 Renaissance Brown on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, Unicef is a nice color. While Pacific Blue is a little bit darker than Unicef, I think it is close enough that I can't justify the price of a bottle of Unicef. Give it a try, you might love it.
