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.

Sailor makes a great ink. It's not fully permanent but it's close and amazing, not to mention convenient.

I bought this to go with my Sailor brush stroke style Calligraphy pen (It came with two blue black ink cartridges which also work great and are copic proof as well). I prefer nice black ink and this definitely delivers; very comparable to the intensity of my Deleter ink. Thankfully this ink is completely matte unlike my Deleter ink which is incredibly glossy.

I've inked several full pieces and I'm still on my first cartridge so they last a while. So the price doesn't bother me a bit considering how much time I'll have between restocking. It also allows me to do some sketching and ink a few random things for practice since the cartridges last so long.

The ink is completely Copic proof thankfully. Works with Prismacolor and LePlume too. I'm sure it'll be fine with any alcohol marker. My only gripe is that it doesn't hold up well to erasing. Mind that it's when you erase a bit tougher, which if you don't have a good eraser is necessary. But for me it's only an issue when I use my RENDR sketchbook which I sketch, ink, and color directly in. Usually I use my lightbox to transfer a sketch onto my marker paper and go straight in with ink rather than resketching, so it's not a big problem.

A few black multiliners (I use Marvy LePen) will fix any issue since you can just touch up any area where the ink may have been effected by erasing.

It also dries fairly quickly which is great. It dries within roughly a minute so it's a big change from dip pen ink which I had to be so careful with. When I do accidentally smudge it it's not too bad either. I can still work with the image.
This ink is by far my favorite. 4 stars only for the erasing issue. Everything else about it is top notch.

This is a great cartridge ink. Yes, it has a smell. So do you. You can probably find a better bottle ink, but cartridge - no. It's dark, flows well, not waterproof (and why would you think it would be....oh nevermind) and just lovely. If you are a cartridge person, and I am, this is for you. Alas, they only work in Sailor pens, so you are buying into a new system if you want this ink, but it was worth it for me.
