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!

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.

I have been using the J. Herbin Fountain Pen Ink ever since Jr High, and they are wonderful inks. But I will share a secret with you! You can use these inks full strength or diluted with distilled water as air brush colors, and diluted 1:1 with distilled water they are wonderful as brush inks -- best when applied with a squirrel hair brush that is pre-wetted with water. The 30 ML from JetPens is almost a dollar cheaper than at my local art store.

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.!! :)

Fantastic classic black. Not as lubricious as many modern inks, which can cause problems writing with any speed. However, very dark for its "wateriness", which gives a wonderful quill-pen line from a fine italic nib.

I use this ink in a Kuretake 50 (sable hair brush pen), a Lamy Al-Star with EF nib, a 03 Platinum Preppy, and with dip pens. I'm particularly impressed by its performance in the brush pen, because it writes smoothly and quickly and lays down fairly wet; I've been upset in the past with inks that made all my brushstrokes look like a dry brush technique, partially because I work fairly quickly. It doesn't leave hardly any residue on my nibs when working with dip pens, which makes clean-up nice and easy.
If you're looking for a slightly off-black ink with a little bit of shading and smooth laydown and you don't mind a little bit of drying time, this is a great ink. This is definitely my go-to.

I had a 10ml bottle which I used to ink several of my pens. When it came time to restock black ink, this was my choice.
