Thanks again, for another nice review! I like this color and find the Pelikan a bit more dry than my Skrip. I like to use this ink in a little Chinese pen that writes very wet.
May you have pens you enjoy, with plenty of paper and ink. :)

Please use only my FPN name "Gran" in your posts. Thanks very much!

I use this ink for its good resistance although is a bit drier than I like my inks. A quality one, not a doubt.

Yum! I like Pel BB in a wet writer to bring out more shading.

Keep these reviews coming!

I have a bottle of this ink-- it's too slow flowing. I avoid it now.

Thanks for the review.

Pel Blue-Black has been one of my favorite BB's for a long time. I like to use it with B and BB nibs, where it keeps a good, consistent line on paper (without slopping or feathering) and shades beautifully. Perhaps not an ink for everyone as it seems to be a better match with larger nib points. - Personal opinion only.

I finally got around to trying this ink this week, and I like it more than I expected to. Flow has been no problem (in a Pelikan M200, F nib). Just a couple of thoughts:

On my monitor, your scan matches the color I see on paper quite well.

This ink looks very nice on buff paper. (I haven't tried it on yellow yet. laugh.gif )
