Montegrappa Ink


Montegrappa ink comes in an elegant looking bottle that is described as being just about as good as an ink well. Both the bottle and the cap have a high quality look. The thick glass bottom gives the overall bottle the look of high quality glass. This is one of the bottles that looks very good sitting on a desk.

I must say that I enjoy using the bottle as it has a vertical versus horizontal design, and this makes filling a pen with a large nib a bit easier. The eight-sided bottle does help when tipping it to get ink when the level of ink goes down.

Because of its size, it nicely fits into my briefcase. If I have a regret, it is the quantity of ink is slightly less than the standard 50 ml bottle typical of the Waterman line. The Montegrappa bottle holds less at 42 ml.
