Superb waterproof black ink. I still write a few checks and ordinary
non-waterproof ink would not be good for that. Along with the Platinum Carbon
Desk Pen, I ordered a pack of these cartridges and am extremely pleased. The
ink writes VERY black and dries quickly. Although I am not left handed the
quick drying attribute would be a huge plus for those who are.
As for the waterproof aspects of the ink, they are fantastic. I wrote "The
quick brown fox, etc." on a piece of paper, put it in a sink full of water and
left it there. When I came back 15 minutes later, the paper was sodden but the
writing was as crisp and dark as when I wrote it. I then crumpled the paper and
squeezed the excess water from it. When I reopened the paper, the words were
still crisp and dark. In fact, the paper was falling apart but the ink never
did. Having this ink in my Platinum desk pen and stand is a real winner for me.
When I have to jot a quick note the pen is ready to go and the permanency of
the ink allows me to put the note in my breast pocket without having to worry
about smudging or staining my shirt.
