Higgins is renowned for their high-quality inks. The Black Magic is a pigment-based drawing ink that is waterproof, fade-proof, and acid-free. This opaque ink has a permanent, intense semi-flat (matte) black finish on most surfaces. It is ideal for use with technical pens, airbrushes, dip pens, and brushes. It is not made to be mixed with other inks, but you can dilute it with pure water. This ink is not laundry-proof.

This is a fairly decent ink, but where it really shines is the bottle design. While using an eye-dropper seems counter-productive to refilling your nib pens, once the habit sets in you realize how efficient and clean the whole process is. It makes me wish that all ink containers had a dropper.

What drops the review a star (actually I would have given it 3, but that dropper... THAT DROPPER!) to 4 is Higgins tendency to have their ink feather out on lighter paper. Higgins is not a good combination with Deleter's Manga Paper. I would suggest to really experiment with ink/ paper combinations and if you have problems swap the paper for a heavier one like bristol board..

Higgins Black Magic is...
Higgins Black Magic is my go to ink at my local art supply store. It's the darkest ink I can find and it really lays out evenly with fountain pens/brushes. I use it exclusively on my 108 lb Paris Bleedproof paper from Borden & Riley (just the right weight to prevent feathering, and smooth enough to preserve all of the fine details in my artwork). I wouldn't recommend it on thinner/printer paper as the other reviewer mentions, but if you are looking for a truly black ink, this is a great start.
