These are exceptional -- smooth and darkest black I've ever found.
But there is one major flaw, which may or may not bother other, based on how
it's used. I'd planned to use these to take notes in meetings, in a small,
quality notebook. But uncovered, though, the ink dries enough in 2-3 minutes
that I have to scratch a little to get it going again. So I'm constantly
starting dry, like a low flow fountain pen after a few minutes.
Maybe knocking a star off is unfair, as they clearly call this an "Envelope
Address" pen, and I never pause while writing those.
For the price, I will continue to buy these, especially the bold ones, which
I've found less susceptible to drying.
