Has anyone compared this with Sailor Nano black? Specifically the smoothness and the flow. I still have 1.5 bottles of Sailor but the urge to justify a new ink is strong...


This is very late, but my acquisition of BlBarBl was only last month.  I had a cartridge of Kiwa-guro in my Sailor 21 Pocket Pen, and when I wrote it dry, I flushed it out and injected a load of Barrister.  I have nothing to add to the positive things people have said about how well-behaved it is, except to add that I haven't noticed any particular reluctance to dry, either in my journal (don't remember the manufacturer; it's a wire-bound notebook from OfficeMax) or on the TR paper that I use for correspondence.  It does feel a little smoother than the K-g, but then the Sailor is a pleasure to write with in any case.  I do have a page in my journal that is 2/3 K-g and 1/3 BlBarBl, and the Blackstone is noticeably blacker.  I like it!
