De Atramentis Christmas Black 2012 is (perhaps obviously) a discontinued fountain pen ink. I used just a bit of the sample I have – it wrote well, but the color is more of a gray.
Seems like I have a huge number of black ink samples that I’ve not tried. I find it difficult to get too excited about black inks.
Do you have a favorite black?
Aurora Black is definitely black. One day, I’ll need to pull all of my black swabs and do a bit of a comparison.
Do you have a favorite? Mine has been Noodler’s Black. I’m definitely open to learning about others that write really well in nearly all pens.
De Atramentis Graphite Black
Scribal Workshop Kraken is a super-duper black ink. I’ve not used it and the ink has been discontinued. Were you a fan?
Another black ink. Did you ever tell me how many black inks you have? Full bottles, I think I have, maybe, three.
Pilot Namiki Black – a good solid black. I’ve not written with it (at least not that I remember). Have you?
Noodler’s Black is a good strong black that behaves well in most every pen. In fact, Noodler’s Black is my standard black ink.
More of a dark gray than black, De Atramentis Black Roses will never be my favorite – if only because of the scent. It kinda makes me shiver just thinking about it again.
