I am not sure why previous reviewer said it was an OK black. In my expereince of using this ink for 20 plus years it is one of the BEST black ink avaliable. And I have used many of them. The only black that MIGHT be slightly darker is AURORA.

Using it with a Lamy CP1 Titanium - Medium nib - fountain pen.

1) Inexpensive
2) Nice flow in slower writing rate - Acceptable in fast
3) Very little gray edge feathering even in fast writing
4) Fast drying, no smearing
5) Very nice black depth but not exceptional
5) Excellent value for everyday use

It's okay. Not great but not bad. The black isn't the darkest. It's more of a purple black. And the ink bleeds a little on cotton paper. But it seems to flow well. It's a decent black ink.

Great ink for the price, super dark and writes really smooth. I use it in a Lamy Safari and I love it. If you are looking to get into fountain pens and inks this is a good one to start with.

Solid, powerful ink. The beveled bottle lets you fill at an angle, and I'm keeping it after it's empty.
