Monteverde Fireopal on Leuchtturm1917

Ink

Monteverde Fireopal is a fiery orange. The ink has an average flow. At first glance, it looks similar to Vinta Terracotta, but on closer inspection, there are differences in the shade and saturation. The colour makes me think of a fiery sunset.

Van Dieman’s Apricot on Leuchtturm1917

Ink

Apricot is from Van Dieman’s Harvest series which celebrates the colourful produce grown in Tasmania.

The ink is a pale orange that makes me think about pastoral sunsets and babies. I find this ink just about readable and obviously is more readable on white paper than cream-coloured paper. It shades well. However the high contrast between the light and dark areas can be distracting and hinders readability.

Paper

I managed to get a LEUCHTTURM1917 planner for a cheap price at the end of the year when shops are clearing the unsold 2020 planners. It used the same 80gsm paper found in LEUCHTTURM1917 notebooks so I decided to use it for writing samples.

Monteverde Sapphire on Leuchtturm1917

Ink

Monteverde Sapphire is a vibrant blue. It shades beautifully and has a wet flow. There is the tiniest bit of sheen in the darker areas where the ink had pooled, it is not obvious unless you are looking really hard. There is some bleedthrough on Leuchtturm1917 paper.

Monteverde Scotch Brown on Leuchtturm1917

Ink

Based on the name, I assumed Monteverde Scotch Brown will be the colour of whiskey. Instead the colour makes me think of chocolate and coffee. The ink has a wet flow and is easy to clean out of the pen. Personally, I find it difficult to use this ink for long because I keep having a craving for chocolate!

Diamine Prussian Blue on Leuchtturm1917

Ink

Diamine Prussian Blue is a unsaturated blue-black that feels a little on the dry side in a fine nib. It feels fine in a medium nib.

This wasn’t the colour that came to mind when I think of Prussian blue so I was a bit disappointed when I first used it. This colour made me think of old, faded jeans. After using it for a while, I started to enjoy the ink, as long as I no longer think of it as Prussian blue. I also felt it looked especially good when using for sketching.
