Unlike other reviewers I find this ink to be slow to dry and when it does it leaves a shiny finish. I don't know how this is beneficial to artwork being scanned. If you work under a drafting lamp the gloss will get on you nerves. The opening on the bottle is small and looking down it seems that a third of the inside is empty which means you have to dig to the bottom to apply ink on the nib.
The ink is dark and adheres to primed nib but it is a little gooey for my taste. Kaimei Lettering is Sol is so much better than this ink. In my opinion it's a waste of money.

Nice color but extremely hard to erase, especially if you're doing under drawing for inking comics. Is there anything better out there?

I was skeptical that the Kaimei Lettering Pen Ink wouldn't be any different than some of the other Manga and shellac based india inks out there which are too thick to flow correctly from nibs and are a pain to clean. Not the case with this ink. It has great flow, produces crisp, dark thick and thin lines without much stalling and it cleans like a charm. One tip to improve the flow is to add a bit (10-15 drops) of some distilled water to the bottle, to make it perform even better and without losing hardly any darkness. I hope JetPens continues to supply this ink.
