I was apprehensive about buying this after reading the other reviews of it being "light grey" but i really wanted black ink, so i went for it. I am very happy with it, it blends in well with my other dark ink pens, i see no problem with it.

Verified Purchase
To start off this "black" ink is a medium gray. It comes out a dark grey and then slowly fades to a lighter and lighter grey; and i assume it'd completely fade away some day. I've got documents that are only half a year old that have faded significantly (although legible). Also, the ink is very sensitive to water and moisture. Overall, a horrible choice for a pen that costs 26.00. Stick with the G2.

Verified Purchase
I do not understand why people are complaining that it looks dark grey. I admit the first time I used it, the ink DID look grey. However, I realized that my pen wasn't fully dry yet. When your pen is dry after cleaning, it is a very nice black. Of course, my standard nib is a medium nib. I also use it in my Lamy Joy 1.1. It really makes my handwriting stand out and gives even my cursive a calligraphic look.

It is MUCH darker than the ink in my Pilot B2P ballpoint or gel pen. It's why I switched to fountain pens in the first place.

If you order black ink you expect black ink. This dries to a medium gray, not even a dark gray. Very disappointed! Update description of product.

I read several reviews that complained about the black ink not being black enough. The ink il flows beautifully and is just the right color. I will continue to buy Lamy products.

Very nice ink for my Lamy AL pen, no skipping, flows nicely. I have no issue with the ink. I find that for my writing I prefer Lamy blue and blue-black inks, but that's just me.

Used with my Lamy Safari, its a perfect black. A deep and rich black that dries quick on regular paper and office stationary.
