In 2010, Montblanc come up with the ink bottle with a special front compartment for emptying residue and now holds 60ml of ink. More stylish and slightly heavier. Montblanc has also revised the ink making process to give an enhanced ink flow in your fountain pen. The ink box itself is also a keep sake due to the ribbon handle and sliding action of the box. There are several new colors to suit every individual taste and occasion.

Never having used Pen Boutique before, I am new to their sterling service. Ink is a tough thing to ship without taking a certain amount of risk. Montblanc Ink is packaged in its own heavy weight glass ink well, and then placed in a protected box. Pen Boutique wrapped each of these in a vinyl bag and sealed it. Then the five individually sealed ink boxes were very carefully wrapped in layers of bubble wrap, and placed into the FedEx shipping box. While the FedEx box was somewhat banged up upon arrival, the contents were in perfect condition. I also felt like a character in a "Harry Potter" film, one day I ordered and then "poof" the FedEx shipment was at my door. I couldn't be happier, and will check Pen Boutique first for all of my future writing needs.
Love this ink. I have switched from cartridges to bottled ink and love it.
If you frequently sign documents which you need to copy, this blue-black ink works well as it allows for you and your staff to easily distinguish between originals and copies yet will disgruntle only the most extreme advocates of the "only-blue" and "only-black" signature camps. Unlike the Waterman version of blue-black, it appears less grey. Midnight Blue is a pleasing, well-balanced compromise between the "stodgy" Mystery Black and the "flamboyant" Royal Blue. The ink itself runs smoothly even through a new nib and does not spread a far from one's intended stroke, giving one the ability to create a crisp and controlled signature. If you display your inkwell, this newer-style Mont Blanc bottle appears luxurious enough to leave on your desk.
