Very black and super ink for my Namiki Falcon fountain pen. Could be more black but its good enough. I find that after a few days or even few hours or less the ink is pretty safe when it comes to me taking some water and going over the written words with my wet fingers. Very little comes off or none at all. Therefore I will never use bulletproof ink Noodlers or some other inks for my nicer Fountain Pens as they will leave tiny film overtime inside the nib area and will make the pen skip or even clog it with inks such as Carbon ink. Ive concluded that with inks such as his Namiki ink you really do not need those waterproof inks etc...I mean whatever I draw or write does not dissappear after running it with water and things that I draw I often place in plastic shhet protectors or Itoya folio binders. So no need to compromise my FP just to have some 100% waterproof ink. Therefore we are all kind of exagrating the need for these so called waterproof inks need for them as long as there are inks as good as this namiki ink.

btw, ideally to write or draw with FP you should use nice paper pads or notebooks such as those from Clairefontaine. Those are number one from experience...I use the A4 21 x 29,7 cm size (here sold as 8 x 11) and smaller pocket size version

Nice black ink but not as good as bottled inks. I only recommend these if you can't afford bottled ink or converter. I got these as a backup for my pencil case in case I run out of ink on the road and don't have bottled ink on me.

Black as black can be, and I have so many Namiki pens now that I go through these pretty quickly. Excellent for calligraphy, everyday writing, and it flows beautifully in their pens. Especially my Vanishing Point, it works just as it should.
