    Taming A Pilot Music Nib

    I very much like the austere formality of the Pilot 912 and thought that an MS nib would off-set that nicely. The pen arrived and I inked it up right away with Monteverde Copper Noir. Oh dear. The nib is a fire hose! So wet and hard to control. What to do? I recalled a recent thread extolling the virtues of Kiwa-Guro. I purchased a bottle.

    The Best Of Three Blacks

I'm not looking to consider any other black inks except these three. Thanks in advance for your feedback. These are the three I'm considering. Let me know your preference, would you? Darkness, saturation and ease of use are my biggest concerns. A ) Pilot Iroshizuku Take-sumi Bamboo Charcoal Ink B )
