Monteverde Smoke Noir on Midori MD


Monteverde Smoke Noir is a medium grey ink. When it is wet, it looks black and turns lighter when it dries. The ink is darker than I expected and not really the colour I think of when I think of smoke. I guess that’s why there’s a “Noir” in the name.

There is little shading in this ink and it is not noticeable unless you really look for it. I also experience nib creep with this ink, but as it doesn’t affect the writing experience, I’m not too bothered with it. I feel this is a neutral colour that works well for professional settings and all kinds of drawing. Among all the inks, this ink had the most hard start problems, but once it started flowing, it flows very wet. It is not a problem with the pen as there are no such issues with other inks, only this ink.
