  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

Not a real black. More like dark gray.

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 container.

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
