Sailor – Kiwa-Guro(極黑)

 

This is my personal favorite black ink.  Very dark and solid black with Chinese ink touch.  I remember when I got this bottle, I specific asked if there is any ink like Chinese ink (which will shine after dried)  There is no other color (that’s that easy to be recognized, i.e., RK40707 Leipsician Black which has green touch and J. Herbin Perle noire which is just simply not solid enough) other than black when washing out.

About standard drying time, between 10 to 15 second.  Wet ink flow and will not clot within the pen (Sailor Sei Boku somehow will form crystals at the nib and clot the feeding)  This ink did not bleed through iPaper UCCU or Double and also did not feather on any of these 2 paper.  With water resistant and sometime I need EtOH resistant at work, this is a good ink to use before RK released their document inks.

CP value: 95/100, it is still better than RK document ink price-wise
