Not really what I'd call...
, June 12, 2013
Not really what I'd call blue-black, more like a weak bluey-grey. I was hoping
for a much bolder colour, similar to the Pilot/Namiki black with a little blue
shading. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a decent review for this specific shade
prior to trying it.
The ink seems to transfer itself to the paper in all the right ways, with no
particular penchant for feathering, bleed through, drying out or any other bad
habits. Maybe it helps to only be used with Pilot nibs, an obvious benefit of
However, I won't be buying these again as I'm just not a fan of the colour.
Fortunately I've a number of Pilot pens around the house, so maybe I can get
someone else to use the rest of these cartridges...
The ink turns darker...

The ink turns darker with increased use, so don't despair if the color looks too
light initially. Appears more like a dark blue than dark gray ( like the lamy
blue-black cartridge). The shade is darker with the fine point nibs. Easy on the
eyes against yellowish tinged paper.
I use the pilot fountain...

I use the pilot fountain pen for taking notes and at first i found the ink to be
too light. But then upon extended use, the ink turns darker--i dunno if it's the
pen or the ink, but it is great! I like this better than the black.
