I've tried a few black inks in the last year and not gotten past the samples - until now. Like a couple of my other Iroshizukus, Take-Sumi simply spoke to me. Color is the black I've been seeking. Flow from the nib (Safari F) is silky smooth (a growing theme in my purchases, especially when color is similar to others I have). Behaves well on my favorite papers and those I am forced to use. Not smeared on me yet, either. Perfect. Glad I waited, and glad I tried one more black sample.
