beautiful navy blue!! your script will command respect whether your signing
crucial documents or just a coffee receipt. I am using this ink in a Waterman
Hemisphere and a Waterman Perspective - both medium nibs. I think the wetness
is absolutely perfect, drying time is nice and quick compared to Waterman ink.
The blotter tape is great too, although not quite large enough for the big mess
I make when refilling. I may be hooked on this ink for a long time!

Tested this ink in a Lamy CP1 with a fine nib. This ink is definitely on the dry
side and my pen has a hard time maintaining sufficient ink flow. As another user
noted, the ink looks great (nice and saturated dark blue with good shading) for
the first few words of a sentence; however, upon further writing the ink
subsequently writes much lighter and dries to a steel-blue color. This ink would
be good in a wetter writing pen. I am now using Diamine Blue-Black and am very
satisfied with the performance of that ink when compared to the Lamy Blue-Black.

Terrific color...for the first two or three words. It flows like a high
viscosity motor oil, but color-wise, this is what a blue-black ink should be.

One of the best blue black inks available. Since Pelikan blue black stopped
production, this has become my favorite. The bottle functions well for filling
and there's some blotter paper integrated with the ink well, but the ink alone
is well worth it.

This review is from Lamy T52 Fountain Pen Ink + Ink Blotter Tape - 50 ml Bottle - Black

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.
