I don't use black ink much but when I came back to fountain pens the first two inks I got was 4001 royal blue and the black.

I found it black enough.

I used a bit of it to darken the royal blue...also.

 

Some folks who use narrow nibs on poor paper found it a gray....blaming the ink, not the paper.

It's black, and black(er).

 

A pen I used for practice was filled with blue ink recently without flushing the 4001 inside, and it still writes black :yikes:

The lack of feathering on that paper is very impressive. I was first introduced to the ink in the novel "House of Leaves." A very classic black.

Do you happen to have any Edelstein inks?

I always wondered how Pelikan basic inks compare to Pelikan Edelstein inks.

Pelikan 4001 b.black I always found black saturated with nice flow even in fine nibs such as sheaffer targa fine and p 45 shown in picture ..INMHOP not given its due praise.

This is the one black ink I use if I have to and it behaves very well. Still prefer the 'master' - 4001 Blue-Black though!

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
