    The Best Of Three Blacks

    Hey, Inkheads . . . I'm down to three options for my primary black ink. I'd like to get some feedback from folks who've used all three and can make an informed suggestion about which is the overall better ink, and share with me your thoughts on specifically why. 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 ) Sailor Kiwa-Guro Pigmented Black Ink C ) Platinum Black Ink Happy Holidays, Scriptorius

    Iroshizuku Feathering

    Friends, I've noticed one phenomenon that holds true across pens, nib widths, flow, and choice of paper: take-sumi is more prone to feathering that tsuki-yo. If one pen can't handle take-sumi, I ink it up with the tsuki-yo and the problem of feathering is solved. For this reason, I use the tsuki-yo as a "therapeutic" ink. Has anyone had this experience? I have only used these two inks. Would you be able to rank feather-proneness across the inks? More importantly, how does Kon-peki do when compared to take-sumi or tsuki-yo? Thanks!
