There’s no sense in beating around the bush here, I do not like this ink. Black is just not my ink color especially not one that shades. As a matter of fact, I no longer have the bottle. Last year I traded it to a fellow FPNer. I’ve had this review written up for quite some time, but I couldn’t bring myself to post it. That is, until I saw a thread on FPN about a member looking for an ink that writes similarly to his favorite rollerball refill.
At first I scoffed at this: ” FP ink like rollerball ink? Blasphemy!” I thought to myself. But, when I ran across this review card the other day I realized that this just might be a good candidate. The poster wanted a black ink (√), that wasn’t too saturated (√) and that shaded just enough so that he could see the paper behind his writing (√). In my opinion Diamine Jet Black fits that description. Now if I could just find that thread so I can recommend it to the OP…
- No feathering or bleed through
- Decent flow and lub, but there is a dry feeling about it.
- Slow drying time at 12ish seconds
- It shades quite a bit for a black ink (especially one called JET black)
- It is water resistant, but not waterproof
