Lolz. I was gardening without any access to the sun. All legal I assure you.

That's a shame.

Definitely a great ink:


  • Bought a bottle a while back,
  • thought it was boring so I shelved it,
  • but took it back out for its easy maintenance and permanence,
  • Quickly began to appreciate the wonderful smoothness of the ink and its consistent flow,
  • Put it in a wet pen and wrote on Tomoe River Paper 52 gsm
  • and now it's a favorite ink of mine.

Especially on TRP the Sheen and Shading brings life to this ink, and especially so with a wetter pen.


But I do really like how smooth and reliable it is on different papers.


A great ink if you need permanence and it may be my new Permanent ink choice.


The price belies the high quality of the ink.  Pilot Blue Black:  Ol' Reliable.

I use Esterbrook dip pen desk sets, and I can only afford to fill the reservoirs with the bulk Pilot inks -which is fine, given their quality! I find I can even cut the inks about 10 - 15 % with distilled water and still have a very nice, well-behaved ink. Once a week or so, I add a few drops of distilled water anyway, as I know I lose that through evaporation. This keeps color consistent as the ink level drops.

(When I started out, this was just a whim, for the fun of it. Now I am addicted. My handwriting is better, and dipping every few lines or even after a long paragraph, causes me to write more thoughtfully.)

A worthy addition to Sandy1's rather comprehensive review.

Lovely ink, I discovered it by accident.


Shame, you cannot get the 350ml in UK at a reasonable price.  sad.png  It should be a staple for school and college.
