Without a doubt the best black fountain pen ink in the world. A very deep black, with great flow, good lubrication, limited feathering and bleed-through on most papers, nice dry-time and very safe in all pens. I just wish that Jet Pens would stock the cheaper 100ml plastic bottles!

I just loaded the ink into my Hi-Tec Cavalier Fountain Pen. The color comes out much darker from the pen than the swatch, but I haven't actually taken a small amount and smudged it across the paper, so I suspect that it's true to the color shown on my screen. It writes very smoothly and is fairly wet. All in all a great buy, and so much more economical and fun than cartridges!

I just received my order and I am currently dipping a preppy platinum fountain pen in the ink. I also ordered Violette Pensee. I am in love with this ink, its wonderful and writes beautiful. It's rich and color and I use it for everyday school work. I love jetpens!!!!! Keep it up, I will always be checking in on this website for new products. The best online stationary store yet.!! :)

Awesome ink! I've been using this in my fountain pens for years. The black is rich and if you use it as a wash, you get some exquisite purple bleed.

This is a solid black that behaves beautifully in pens. I've had no issue with staining, bleedthrough, or anything with this ink. My only complaint is the bottle shape, which requires you to use a syringe to get up the last of the ink. Oh well, I can live with that for good ink.

Very solid choice for black ink. Comparable to the Speedball India I use for dip pens. I'll get more when this bottle runs out, for sure.

After all the good reviews, I purchased this for my Lamy Safari (EF nib) and Pilot Metropolitan (M nib). While initially the color is very nice, the ink itself it a disaster. Even keeping either pen capped except exactly when I'm writing, it dries out in the pen tip, causing me to have to do a lot of work to get it flowing again to be able to actually write. I happen to think the Metropolian's M nib is fairly wide, and this is still an issue.
