CONS
  • Messy to open the bottle with the foil seal.
  • So saturated that if you get it into the threads, it can crust up and cause leakage.
  • A little tough to clean from certain pens.
  • I don't like the scent.

OVERALL

While I really like the original series of Blackstone inks (unscented) and I LOVE the color of this particular one, it's been such a pain. Messy to open, messy around the mouth when the ink crusts, and I don't like the scent. It is not for me.
