Pilot Iroshizuku Ink - 50 ml - Take-sumi Bamboo Charcoal (Black) - PILOT INK-50-TAK
I love this ink. Although it is on the pricey side, the quality of the ink and the bottle design is well worth it. Iroshizuku inks are all packaged in these really pretty bottles. They make my desk look great. The ink is a good dark black, but isn't so intense that it hurts my eyes when I read it. There is a review about it feathering way too much. That only happens when I use really crappy paper. Feathering happens to all inks when paired with pathetic paper. It feathers on post-it note paper, but it works totally fine on regular printer paper.
