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.

Verified Purchase
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.

This is one of my 2 inks that I use on a daily basis in a wide variety of pens. Very even flow, very water resistant.

This is great stuff. This ink works in just about any pen. It's reliable, consistent, and cleans up with just water. Does not muck up your nib or feed. It is semi permanent so if you spill water in your work you won't lose it all. It has great flow, dries fairly quick. The color is not as saturated as a sailor or iroshizuku but in not washed out looking either. The price is reasonable and I really like the size of the 70ml bottle. I go between the blue-black and blue. Really like them both. For me, It's the perfect every day ink.
