Quick drying, dry ink, dark enough to read back. Seventy years old and left handed over writer.

I really like "bright" inks, instead of "dark" inks!  C. S.

The vast majority of the ones I like are saturated, but some also look very cool when shading (Kon Peki, Asa Gao) and I just got one which might be less saturated: Hisoku... So a bit of everything?

I chose saturated because I'm a sucker for sheen!

I can't vote for just one type.  I don't think I could limit myself to one type.  I like saturated inks, but I also really like iron gall inks, and have liked some of the shimmer inks I've tried (depends on the base color).  This morning I have the new Edelstein Olivine in a pen with an OB nib and going "OOH!" over the shading.   And one of my favorite inks (in spite of being a problem child) is Noodler's Kung Te Cheng, which is pretty much everything proof....

These days shading is the #1 property I look for when buying new inks. Robert Oster is becoming a favorite company to check first since many of their ink have good shading.

it's a multi choice poll.. so you can pick everything that applies.. or you can just pick "No preference" because you like every type of ink..
