Very black and super...
, May 1, 2010
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

It is dependable, convenient ink. It could be a little more black. I understand
that bottled ink may be more cost-effective, but you can't beat the convenience.
I carry 2 of these as back-up in my pocket in an old travel size pill
Every time I snap a new one in, it works consistently with my Pilot
Metropolitan. If you carry a fountain pen, highly recommended. If yours is a
desk diva, then go for fancy bottled ink.

Nice black but i burn through these cartridges in a day
its much smarter to just buy some bottled ink
