PROS
  • Solid, deep black.
  • High water resistance.
  • Cleaning difficulty is high, but given what kind of ink it is, I don't think it's too bad. Just don't let it dry out in your pen.
  • Affordable.
  • Does not bleed through as much as some other document proof inks (ie. a few I have used from De Atramentis).

CONS
  • On the other hand, it is higher maintenance than non document-proof inks.
  • Little to no shading.
OVERALL

Solid. One of my go-to blacks when I am doing calligraphy or addressing envelopes. Pretty affordable, relatively easy to clean (given it's a document proof, super saturated black). I approve!

I received this item at a discount for the purposes of this review. I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion.
