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 etc..no 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

They arrived but were lacking instructions on how to install. I screwed up the first one because of lack of instructions. Installation instructions would be helpful.

It would be hard--if not, indeed, impossible--for me to imagine a better cartridge than the one I am now very happily using in my pen! Thank your for a great product at a great price--delivered on time, if not sooner! You'll be hearing from me again (in a rarely heard positive sense of this expression!) So glad and grateful to have made your acquaintance! Pastor John (lover of pens--especially, but not exclusively, fountain pens--since the nuns at the parochial school I attended introduced me to the under-appreciated joy and beauty of penmanship! (and pen-woman-ship). I never feel so civilized as when I compose and inscribe (1) with a superior writing instrument . . . (2) on ideally textured paper . . . in the English language (which has, by far, the largest vocabulary of any language in the world). (I was an English teacher for about a decade before entering seminary and, following my studies there, the pastorate. I am a blessed man, to be sure! Sincere thanks for bringing a keen part of this blessing into my right hand! God bless you, your loved ones, and your more-than-merely worthwhile labors! Pastor John
