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 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.

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 proprietary cartridges.

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...

Pilot Namiki inks are very stable and probably the best ink price wise!

I wish this was a bit more saturated, but it looks excellent with both the Plumix and the Penmanship nibs. Flows smoothly, and doesn't dry up even after sitting for a few weeks. Great all-around everyday ink.

Not quite the deep blue I was looking for, but still good.
