I have been using Monteverde's Black ink for the last year in my pens. I must say, I am really not a fan of this ink. It smudges even a few days after the writing has been done. It is very dry and makes my fine nibs skip a lot. It is not easy to clean out either. I have heard people say good things about this ink, so maybe it is just not for me. I have forced myself to use it for a year so that maybe I can change my mind about it, but I think it is finally time to get a new staple black.
I was wondering if I could get some suggestions for a nice wet ink that flows well and washes out well. I have some fine and extra fine nibs that I would like to use this with. Permanence would be nice too, but I would like it to flow well.
