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...

Minimal price for 12 Ink Cartridges. I purchased these for the Ink Cartridge (so I could refill with a Syringe of the ink of my choice).

Good tone after a sentence or two is written. This works very well in the Pilot Metropolitan with Fine nib and the Pilot Penmanship pen with the Extra Fine nib. I had used Lamy Blue-Black, but found its thicker viscosity tended to gum up the nibs.

Soon I'll be getting a Pilot Original Cuson in XF and my guess is that it'll be the one that won't block up the nib.

Convenient, easy to pop in, and a delightfully consistent blue-black ink that doesn't spread, web out, or bleed thru quality papers, Dries quickly, especially with fine nibs. Highly recpmmended for its portability in writing kits, ease of use, no mess, and reliability.
