Pilot standard-issue black fountain pen ink is super-black and smooth. It has to
be one of the blackest blacks available today and the 70ml bottle is very handy
for longer pens--including Pilot's new, large Custom 823 vacuum-filled fountain
pen which requires a deeper bottle. You cannot go wrong with this terrific black

This ink is very dark and quick-drying. It's also relatively inexpensive,
considering that it's a 70 ml bottle.

This is my go-to-black ink, along with Pilot Blue. In terms of color, the ink
could be better. On paper, the black is slightly washed-out. However, it is
also very free flowing, doesn’t feather too badly, and is extremely safe and
clog-free. The 70ml bottle is also pretty economical (note: it would be even
MORE economical if JetPens would stock the 350ml refill bottles). The Pilot ink
also keeps for prolonged periods of time without developing slime or sludge in
the bottle. If the color was more saturated, I would give it 5 stars. However,
I am happily willing to give-up a little on color for a safe and free flowing
ink like this.
