PROS


  • Solid black.
  • Adorable packaging (see Emerald Boa review for packaging).
  • Affordable.
  • Great color for water washes and art, or calligraphy.

CONS


  • Not water resistant.
  • Bottle is hard to fill fountain pens from when it gets around half empty, especially if you have larger fountain pens. 
  • Bleeds a bit.
  • Quite saturated, so needs a good flushing to clean thoroughly.
  • Narrow bottle opening.

OVERALL


Meh... it takes a lot for a black to wow me and this one is not bad, but it's not amazing to me either. At least it's a nice, solid black with a bit of sheen.

Use the new side-by-side Ink Comparison Tool over at Anderson Pens to compare up to five inks at a time, including discontinued/vintage inks. The database is ever growing, with over 800 inks. WOW.

I received this item 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.
