  • Monteverde Ink Eradicator for Blue Fountain Pen Ink | Product Reviews

    Brand new for 2017, the news of Monteverde's ink eradicator reminded us of those ink-erasing pens we always wanted at school. They were a stationery must-have for young kids but often left you dissapointed when they erased a hole in your page as well as the ink.

    We hoped that this wouldn't be the case when testing Monteverde's version!

    inkeradicatorThe Ink Eradicator comes with an erasing tip on one end and a fineliner for rewriting over your mistake on the other end. It is longer than we had expected at 17cm but still small enough to fit into pencil cases and pockets.

    The ink eradicator only works on the Monteverde blue inks listed below and the inks we used were the G306BU International Standard Size cartridges. The pen used was a Monteverde Invincia Deluxe Carbon Fibre Chrome Trim Fountain pen with medium nib.

    The images below show the before and after of using the ink eradicator and the third image shows the text rewritten with the fineliner end of the tool.

    The erasing tip is very effective at removing any traces of fountain pen ink and although the stain is visible in the images, after a short amount of time the trace becomes very faint and almost unnoticable. It would probably be less noticeable if you were writing on white or plain coloured paper.

    The fineliner does seem to write much darker than the colour of the fountain pen ink, but once again after a short period it does seem to dry and fade to a lighter blue colour.

    We did test whether you could rewrite over the erased section of the paper with the fountain pen but it simply absorbs the ink and so the fineliner must be used to make a mark.

    Overall we were quite impressed with this new tool from Monteverde and would recommend it for those who use Monteverde's blue inks as its affordable price is definitely worth it if it prevents you having any obvious mistakes in your writing.
