How does Perle Noir's drying time compares to Aurora's?
I love Aurora black for its flow and darkness, but would like to use a faster drying ink.

Thank you for the answer. I'll give Perle Noire a try.

I like Aurora Black too. My only wish is that the PH was closer to 7.0 than it is. I know, I know that the Noodlers inks are all PH neutral, but there is something that makes me reluctant to fill my pens with any of them. I'm not the only one. Many of the older pen folks that I know have not used Noodlers either. My "reference" black used to be Rotring Dakota Black with a PH of 7.0 along with excellent water and sun resistance (per Greg Clark's book). Alas, it is long gone and the closest I've found so far to its properties is the Visconti Black.

Still trying to like this one, but I'm afraid I don't understand fascination with it. In my opinion Waterman Black is much better ink.
Adam, many fpn users on the left hand side of the pond seem to be attracted by blunt solid color. For the "black is black" lovers Aurora, with is dark as a black hole spectrum along with the perfectly balanced and safe properties is one of the top choices out there. Herbin's Perle Noire is its closest rival, noticeably permanent and similar behavior. I'm in love as well with blacks with an attitude, like the Waterman's Noire you mention. Elegant to an extreme. We should be grateful the market offers us choices, so we all can be happy!
Very nice review, thank you.
