My Favorite Inks: Montblanc Toffee Brown

Montblanc is one of those brands. You know the ones - the ones that some people find pretentious. I thought that about the brand for quite some time - and then I got my hands on some of their products, and reluctantly began to enjoy the brand. Quietly, in my own home, without admitting it to anyone. (Don't forget to pull the drapes.)

Seriously, though, MB tends to get a lot of flak from people. Snarky comments about "precious resin" aside, I do think they make quality products. Their marketing team is just a bit over the top.

I am not the brown ink fan in the household - that honor belongs to Joe. He bought a bottle of Montblanc Toffee Brown some time ago, and I find myself swiping it time and again to use, unlike almost every other brown ink here - and believe me, there are quite a few.

Take a look and see what you think.

  1. Sigh. Toffee brown makes me hungry. It's a very nice brown, looks quite warm.

  2. Nice ink review. I have a couple of browns and may have to add this to my next order. I love the Monteblanc Alfred Hitchcock Blood Red which is true to it's name.

    Favorite brown (currently) is the Pilot Iroshizuku Yama-Guri.

  3. I would love to get my hands on the Iroshizuku Yama-Guri but at the moment Watermans Havana Brown is my favorite.
