1. Does not clog pen.
2. Does not stain pen.
3. Does not need frequent flushing.
4. Washable from clothes. May need Amodex or other ink stain remover but you should be able to rescue your clothes if stained; or better yet, using plain water.
5. Generally not fussy.
6. Fairly fast drying.
7. Tolerant of a wide range of papers including poor quality papers, and does not feather easily.
Of course in addition to being low maintenance you have to like the ink for it's color, flow and other properties.
I'll start: My favorites currently are Aurora Black and Aurora Blue.
Runners up: Pelikan Brilliant Black, Waterman Florida Blue, J. Herbin Eclat de Saphir and Sheaffer Skrip Blue.
So what are you favorites?
