Monteverde Copper Noir Ink Review & Giveaway!

Monteverde Copper Noir Ink is one of the newer Monteverde “Noir” or black based inks recently released. Monteverde recently added 10 Noir ink colors to their World of Colors ink collection.  Each bottle of Monteverde Noir ink, contains Monteverde’s ITF technology, which allows for a quick dry time, great ink flow, it lubricates the feeding system and allows for an extended cap-off time.

Monteverde Copper Noir ink is a fabulous dark orange copper color, with a hint of a dark or black where the ink is heavily applied. Monteverde Copper Noir ink has more orange in its color than red like the Organics Studio Oscar’s Copper ink. The color of this ink is closer to the Diamine Ancient Copper ink. Monteverde Copper Noir ink is a nice super dark orange ink that shows up well on white paper and is dark enough for everyday use. All Monteverde ink is manufactured in Europe, but packaged in the United States.

Monteverde Copper Noir Ink Review

Monteverde Copper Noir Ink Review

We found the following traits during our review of Monteverde Copper Noir ink that you may find useful:

Testing Factors

During our review of Monteverde Copper Noir ink we used French made Rhodia dot pad paper with a J. Herbin glass dip spiral pen.

Bottle Sizes

Monteverde bottled ink is available in two ink sizes, the regular and very large capacity 90 ml. glass bottle as well as a smaller, almost trial sized, 30 ml. glass bottle. Monteverde Copper Noir ink also comes in a 12 pack of ink cartridges as well.

Cost

Monteverde Copper Noir ink retails for $8.00 per 30 ml. glass bottle and $15.00 for the larger 90 ml. glass bottle. These prices make Monteverde Copper Noir ink an economical ink choice and great value.

Dry Time

During our review of Monteverde Copper Noir ink we found a very quick dry time of approximately 5-6 seconds, which makes this ink very usable in both the home or office. Our dry time was experienced with a glass dip pen on Rhodia paper. Please note that other paper and nib sizes may produce different results.

Bleed Through

There was no bleeding at all during any part of our test using Monteverde Copper Noir ink.

Feathering

During normal use we found absolutely no additional feathering while using Monteverde Copper Noir ink. All lines were clear, crisp and distinct. During the water test, we did notice some slight feathering and line distortion at its wettest parts.

Water Test

We ran a soaking wet cotton swab over an ink sample of Monteverde Copper Noir ink after it had dried for about 3 minutes. The results were some additional line distortion and feathering and some significant color smearing, all of which is not abnormal for a water-based non-waterproof ink.

Shading

Monteverde Copper Noir ink will produce some fantastic shading with the right nib, and handwriting skills. The color of the ink ranges from light orange to deep dark orange/copper that is almost black. There was even a slight amount of sheening at the wettest points of the review.

Conclusion About the Monteverde Copper Noir Ink

Monteverde ink in general has become a great, economical ink option. They have over 50 ink colors to choose from, are fountain pen friendly, and has great characteristics, colors and price. Monteverde Copper Noir ink is a striking dark shade of orange, with a slight black tint. The price is right,especially at the smaller 30 ml. size, to pick up two or three “Noir” colors. They are all unique dark varieties of a basic color shade. Happy writing from the EU to America!

    I know people gravitate to crazy sheen/shading/sparkly inks, but would love to see more reviews for those of us who use fountain pens at work. Inks that are dark but not black, have no shading (So hard to find), no sheen, and no sparkles. And that can be used on the worst, lightest-weight paper available.

    I really like how Monteverde’s Noir collection looks in reviews, especially their Rose Noir and Mercury Noir. I’d love to get a bottle for myself but it’s not available in my country 🙁

    I’m pleased to see that you’ve introduced more reviews on ink types I was interested in. The price and volume of this ink are fantastic, and it looks very useful for some art applications. I imagine their other colors would be great options as well, especially any greens or reds. Keep up the reviews on these economical inks suitable for art applications. Perhaps do a pleasant green ink next time?

    I have quite a few of the Monteverde inks, and I love them all. However, it does seem that they tend to mimic the colors and naming conventions of other brands. While their ITF technology changes the feel Andy performance of the ink, I’d like to learn more about who actually makes their ink (Diamine, Pelikan, etc).
