Reviewer: Jasmin

I think I made a good choice for my very first ink bottle. Though I have no experience with other brands, I found that I really liked this ink. It's dark and easy to handle. It doesn't bleed like a felt tip pen but it looks like one. The only problem I've had is that the ink dries quickly and my nib seems to get stuck together. Maybe I just need more practice.

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
