Pelikan Brilliant Black...
, December 2, 2013
Pelikan Brilliant Black was the first black inks I used in my fountain pens. It
flows well in the pen, leaves a clean line and works well on cheap paper. It is
one of the few inks that I can pair with a fine nib fountain pen and write in a
moleskine notebook successfully. I find that it is a little thicker than other
black inks and a few of my pens don't write as well with it, but overall it
works satisfactorily. I like that it is a true black, no grey shading in my
I like other black inks too, but due to the inexpensive price point of this ink,
keeping a bottle of Brilliant Black on hand for times when I want to write in
cheap notebooks or a moleskine planner makes sense for me.
