I'm fascinated by the weird bottle this ink comes in. The ink is in the top
half, which is a saucer-shaped glass bottle with a thick base so that the ink
appears to be floating above the bottom half, which is black plastic with a
spool of blotter paper inside. (There's a lot of paper in there -- the coil
fills up almost the entire bottom. The glass and plastic halves snap together,
which might be useful if you want to hide something else in there.) Because of
its sandwiched layers, the bottle is significantly wider than most other ink
50ml isn't quite as big a bottle as some other brands (such as the 80ml Diamine)
but it's a good price, it's a snazzy bottle, and hey, free strip of fuzzy paper.
I'm no fountain pen ink expert, so all I can say about the ink itself is that it
writes properly and is black. I use premium brands like Diamine when I want
exotic colors, but for plain black I like this chubby bottle.

Oh, and to my previous comments I'd like to add: This isn't the darkest black
ink around, so I'd consider it an "everyday black" ink and not one for fine
artwork/calligraphy. (On glossy paper, it can look a little gray.) But still,
it's affordable and has a pretty bottle.

This ink is excellent and I would highly recommend it. The color is a sharp
black, and the ink does not bleed through paper as easily as some others. The
container itself is aesthetically pleasing. Works great with my Lamy Safari.

This ink is simply beautiful. The black perfectly dark. (For the price) There is
actually a lot of blotter tape, unlike what i thought. The only bad thing I have
found is the cap. You really have to tighten it more than usual in order to make
it not leak. If there would have been a seal in the lid, it would be great. I
would recommend it!

This is very good for the price, and its also pretty good because you can write.
It also looks very good it's a solid black not like another.
