Excellent ink for fountain pens, ok for calligraphy pens. A bit too thin for my 1.9mm nib lamy calligraphy pen, it feathers out noticeably on complex letters that require dark, broad strokes. But, it isn't advertised as a calligraphy ink, so I can't ding it for that! Would be great for day to day use in the office or journal.

An extremely well-behaved, low-priced ink. I use this in my Lamy Safari F, and it writes well on many types of paper with fairly little feathering or bleedthrough. However, if you are looking for a DARK, black ink, this may not be the choice for you; from my experience, Waterman black seems to be more of a nice dark grey tone. I also don't think it's waterproof. But it does produce some very pretty shading and is a pleasure to write with!

I was given a bottle of the Waterman Nostalgia Black ink as a gift and I find it a great everyday ink for my fountain pens. I always keep one of my medium nib pens loaded with this ink and use it for note taking, journal entries and other every day writing tasks. It is not the blackest ink that I own, but because it behaves so well in the pen, I find that I can use it more widely than my other preferred black ink, the Pelikan Brilliant Black. If you are looking for a reasonably priced, well behaved, black ink, this one would be a good choice.

great ink. however, i feel like it leaks quite a bit through the paper and spreads easily.
