I present to test the ink Hero Blue-Black, or traditional blue-black. For this cheap and ubiquitous. It has its supporters and opponents. Looking at the advantages and disadvantages can be seen that for a long time to dry, slightly dry, but the pen writes rustling after page without a problem. I blot, which is wet (as of this writing) and not yet dry - not penetrated to the other side !. I think I liked ...

Thank you for this review of my favorite blue-black ...... Very inexpensive at tmart.com. I use it for a lot of my writing samples, and I don't find it to be that slow to dry.

Thank you.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Hi Teri, do you dip your pens in this ink or do you fill them up? I am wondering whether maintenance may be an issue in using this ink in vintage pens.

Mostly dipping. I've filled a Parker Falcon with this ink, and the converter does have a rubber sac, but I haven't used it in any lever fillers.

This is one of my favorite inks.

I've used it in all my pens from vintage to new, and haven't had any problems as yet.

I've also used it with my dip pens.
