This is not just high-quality ink - it's an excellent dark black with great
flow, that in my tests I find to be waterproof. Wow. A contender against
Noodler's black... except with a smoother, juicier flow!

This ink is very interesting. It will make your pens write like a dream. It goes
on nice and smooth, and doesn't feather, no matter how junky your paper is. It's
light proof, as well as waterproof. If you want something to withstand anything
you throw at it, this is the ink. It cleans off very easily with water, but does
tend to leave a residue that can just be wiped off. It does have a unique
smell, but if you've used any acrylic paints, it's 1/100 of that smell. It's
pricey, but for those who demand it, there are no substitutes.
| I just received this...

I just received this ink in a box of 12 cartridges. I was looking for a
waterproof black ink to use in my Sailor calligraphy pens (used for sketching),
and based on much research and reading many good reviews about this ink, as well
as its successful use under watercolors, I decided to buy it.
I’ve tested it on the following papers: 1) Arches Watercolor (sheet), Natural
White, 90lb, cold press; 2) Canson Montval Watercolor (pad), 140lb, cold press;
3) Strathmore 500 series Mixed Media (bound book), 90 lb, 4) Canson Art Book One
Sketch paper, 67lb; 4) Bee Professional Series Pen Sketcher’s (pad), 70lb; and
5) Hewlett Packard Office Paper with ColorLok Technology (ream), 20lb.
On all of these papers, even with letting the Sailor Nano Ink Ultra Black dry
for several minutes, I would definitely NOT plan to use it for line under
watercolor. It leaves a grey wash on all the papers tested, some more than
others. While it doesn’t run/beautifully wash like the ink that comes with
the Sailor pens, it’s kind of the worst of both worlds.
It is also not as black as the ink that comes with the Sailor calligraphy pens
(that’s a nice black!), and it’s a warmer color. In fact, in comparison
with these pens/inks, I’d say this Nano ink lacks “character”, or
“oomph”: Herbin Perle Noire (in a Rotring pen), Uni-ball Vision Fine
(roller ball), Copic Multiliner 0.5, Platinum Carbon cartridge ink in a Platinum
Carbon Desk Pen, Pentel Pocket Brush Pen, and the aforementioned Sailor ink that
comes with the Sailor DE 40 degree Calligraphy Fountain Pen. (I don’t know
what ink that is as it’s not specified anywhere).
So I am pretty disappointed. Since I’ve used one of the cartridges for
testing, I can’t return this to Jet Pens. I am glad I did not purchase this
ink in a bottle for $33! Anybody want 11 cartridges of this?

I love this ink. I use in in a Sailor Profit Calligraphy Pen. The pen with this
ink is soooooo smooth, plus it is waterproof when I add watercolors. No
feathering noted. Love it! I just wish it fit all of my fountain pens.
