I tried this ink again, and even bought a new bottle (the old one is at least 20 years old) and still don't much care for it. Too light, too cranky (flow problems in my Parker 61 and the "51" I tried it in), and not good on my crappy notebook at work.
Many people like it, but I've never really gotten to. For what it's worth, the new formulation is darker. Still not really black, at least for me.

I just bought a bottle of Parker Quink black ink and it really seems to be flowing heavily from my nib (Pelikan M200 old style pre 1997) M. Is this just how the pen writes or is this a problem? I'm brand new to fountain pens and the ink i had in the pen yesterday (before kind members of this forum told me to immediately remove it) was a higgins non water proof black ink (for calligraphy pens) which actually wrote quite well (but apparently does damage to the nib).Is this a problem or is this just how a fountain pen should write? it seems that it's just very think and that if i don't write very quickly, the ink will bleed onto the paper.Thanks for your help.Cheerks.

I admit that Parker Quink Black is not the blackest of blacks, but it is one of the best behaved inks I have used. It flows very well in most (though not all) of my pens, and it is very easily available in my country (unlike most other inks). It's the black ink that I use most of all.

I received a bottle of Quink black with the Parker Urban kit I purchased a while back (pen, bottle of Quink black, 2 black cartridges, 2 blue cartridges, and a converter). I stared the pen off with a cartridge, but them moved to the converter and bottle. The ink flows well in the pen, it's smooth, and is quick drying. It doesn't feather on the legal pads I use at the office. Nice fuel for the daily driver.
