This ink is amazing, it's consistency and usability is exactly what the description says. Minimum amounts can be used to ink Manga drawings or American style comic illustrations without running out. It spreads easily and doesn't require you to dip your brush or pen nib in a little bit of water before hand either. On the note of this ink being water-resistant, it is VERY water-resistant. I had to rush out on an emergency and forgot to screw on the top for my water jar. My cat happened to knock it over whilst I was gone, however, the ink was still in tact, no running or anything. The only thing you have to worry about is if you get a little too much water on said drawing, sketch, outline whatever, and the paper starts to "feather", this WILL result in darker pigmentation in the paper. This ink definitely does not run after it has dried. I have 30 or so drawings that I have inked with one bottle and I have not put a dent into it yet. This ink is VERY good. Regards, Tony

I'd give it a 3.5 star to be precise. I tried this ink with Speedball nibs, Deleter nibs and Nikko nibs on Deleter manga paper (135kg), Canson Mix Media sketch book (98lb), Canson marker paper (18lb), copy paper, and printer paper. This is what I liked and disliked about the ink: Liked: very dark, did not bleed, free flowing on all different paper kinds of paper Disliked: clogged nibs, dries very quick, does not handle pressure - makes line consistent for the most part Personally I really hated how it clogged the nibs. After one dip and swipe - bam, the ink already stuck onto the nib (because it dries so quickly). You'll have to wash your nib with soap every 3-4 dip which isn't convenient. Because it clogged nibs, it was hard to control line variation. Very light pressure gave medium lines (instead of thin) and meduim pressure gave very thick lines (instead of medium). I liked how it was dark and that the ink flowed easily on all the different types of paper I used but because of the inconvenient way to handle the nib and hard to control pressure, inking turned out to bumpy experience instead of peaceful, which earns a 3.5. I think I'll end up using this ink to color black areas instead. XD
