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 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.
