Seems like gray inks are a love ’em or hate ’em kind of thing. Me? I find that I’m picky about my grays (or greys, if you prefer). I like either true gray – or perhaps a bit blue leaning like J Herbin’s Gris Nuage or Pilot Iroshizuku’s Fuyu syogun (Old Man Winter).
Before we dive into the review of Montblanc’s Albert Einstein ink, you have seen the pen, yes? It’s the cap that does me in, makes me swoon, gives me heart palpitations. Love, love, love.
But it’s this part that turns me off . . .
The metal. The sharp drop-off between the barrel and the grip. Bleh.
I had the opportunity to hold one of these at the Montblanc Boutique in San Francisco when they were first available. I just didn’t love it. I mean, I’d take one if someone wanted to gift it to me (duh), but I’m not buying one for myself.
Anyway…the ink review..
