Let’s take a look at Monteverde Confidence Blue. I love the color of this ink-it’s so pretty. It would be great as a winter ink or early spring. I purchased my sample of ink from Pen Chalet.
Confidence Blue is a beautiful pale blue.
In large swabs the ink has some gorgeous shading, almost purple at times.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 20 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and bleeding in every nib size, so it’s not an ink I would recommend for cheap paper.
I used a TWSBI Eco Transparent Blue with a medium nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, I love the color of this ink, it’s gorgeous! The shading can get a bit light, but it was still readable for me.
