    Anyway, no (far too late) suggestion here, as I only really use Carbon Black. But for the edumacation of passers-by, I was much impressed by the ability of Platinum Black (non-Carbon) to work on really dire paper without feathering.

    This worked. They got it right this time and I'm about to try it.

    I was just testing my Levenger Raven in a WS 601A. The one with conical nib. It kerploded in my hand. But the ink actually did wash off, so I guess, yay?

    So far I've tried Noodler's Heart of Darkness, X-Feather, and Black. For blackness sake, the Black seems blackest. The Black doesn't seem to hurt my pens but I tend to not keep any one ink in any of my pens longer than a month without a good cleaning.

    I'm cleaning several pens now to play with the bottle of ESSRI I got yesterday with a 1.1 and 1.5 stub. I know it's not totally black but watching it change from a blue to a bluish-black in 15 seconds is fun and it dries much faster than Noodler's Black.

    Cheers'

    I probably would, too. The Pilot/Namiki Black is working very nicely so far in a cheap demonstrator.
