Monteverde Wisdom Purple is from the Emotions collection. It’s almost summer so I’ve been reaching for fun, more vibrant colors, and I think this one fits the bill. Thanks to Monteverde for sending it over for review.
Wisdom is a bright, medium purple. Not too red or too blue, but right in the middle.
In large swabs there’s a tiny bit of greenish-copper sheen. I love how it shifts in-between both colors of sheen.
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 a bit of bleeding and feathering in the larger nib sizes as well as some feathering in the smaller nib sizes.
I used a Sailor Pro Gear Slim Purple Cosmos with a zoom nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a wet flow.
Overall, I love the bright purple color, it has a lovely wet flow and it’s affordable. It’s a yes for me. I have two bottles of Wisdom to give to readers, so join the giveaway below!
Update: Congratulations to Michael and Lea for winning the giveaway!
