This is a wonderful ink, permanent on paper, and a subdued blue, it has become my daily writer ink for my school work where I can't risk my notes smudging. It's a bit pricey here, as I can get a 350 ml bottle of this ink in Hong Kong for what amounts to $15 USD, but at least you don't have to fork out a $2000 airplane ticket. It's still a good deal, especially for the properties it offers: smooth, well behaved on a variety of papers, and permanent (on paper). I would get more in a heartbeat when I run out. On top of that, it's got the old-timey ink smell to it. I think it's the only one with that scent, and it just might be the preservative they use.

This is an excellent blue-black ink. It is smooth writing, highly water-resistant and well-behaved. It is my main ink I use at my workplace. Plus the bottle has an excellent internal inkwell design that aids in filling the pen.

One of my favorite inks. This ink stays blue after drying, rather than turning a sort of blue-grey like a lot of blue-black inks. Good flow, dries quickly even on Tomoe River paper and shows a hint of red sheen on there as well! Add in the fact that it's practically waterproof and this is always in one of my pens.

Very nice ink, more blue than black. It shades nicely with a wet pen. When put to the water test I could see a little bit of color released but none of the released color adhered to the paper. The result was writing that looked unchanged from the soaking. So I would call it waterproof.

I find that I'm using this ink more and more often.

Beautiful, stately looking ink that is easy on the eyes, but looks sincerely elegant and "official" on paper. Unpretentious, somewhat bold with academic undertones, yet hints of greatness, posterity, and wealth.

This is the Toyota Camry of blue-black ink. It comes in an awesome bottle. It is one of the best ink bottles on the market. It's deep enough (you use the funnel insert) to ink up the Custom 823, with very little ink remaining in the bottle. The color is pretty but not complex or spectacular. The behavior is very good, but as good as RK Salix, but the ink flows more wet than the Salix. It's a good work ink because of how "normal" it looks.

Nice color that can easily distinguish from a photocopy yet dark enough so as still look professional. Flows smooth. The plastic cup inside the jar is pretty nice for filling when ink gets low. 70ml is a nice quantity for the price.

So far, so good. I like blue black ink, so this will be used, but in any event, the bottle will be used for other inks hereafter.

A very nice blue-black ink at a reasonable price. It performs well and doesn't dry up off the nib even if I don;t use the pen for a few days. A good all-around ink.
