  • Nice, deep black with no other undertones.
  • Has some sheen to it. 
  • Some water resistance. 
  • Highly saturated but not too difficult to clean. 
@Kaweco Black/Pearl Black Ink @JetPens Flex 
@Kaweco Black/Pearl Black Ink @JetPens Sheen
  • Expensive. 
  • No shading (as is expected with a black ink), but I find this unfortunate anyway. 
  • Flow is a little slow in wide nibs (such as calligraphy nibs).

While I generally find black inks very dull, I was pretty impressed with this one, but only because of one thing (can you guess what it is?): the sheen. The only other black ink I have so far seen with this is Sailor's Kiwa-Guro pigmented black ink. This one is not pigmented therefore it's much easier to clean, it has some water resistance, and it has a sheen. I can't complain too much.

I received this ink free of charge for the purposes of this review. I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion.

HA! I didn't taste this one after all. I'll give it a sample when I get home!

Thank you! I'm so glad it's helpful. This is one of the few blacks I actually really like. I'm picky about black inks!
