Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why the hoopla, just use it and see... I have several different blacks in offering in my ink box, and I thought "what's the fuss about Aurora Black all about". A tad on the spendy side, but what the heck I use black all the time.... Wow! the flow is smooth, the color is the most intense black I have used in a fountain pen! All others I have used have some underlying pigment that reflects through, green, blue, brown, but not this one. Clear, crisp BLACK- the black one gets on a Xerox copy! And no bleed through (also a big plus on cheap paper). I even like the tall square bottle. I shall use this one from now on.... Now what to do with all the other Blacks?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my best inks. PERIOD I was looking for a dark black ink with good properties and I am not done searching, but I kind of was in a rush to get a black ink to get me going and based on reviews, this Aurora Black was the one to get. At this point, I only have only other color inks to compare (7 x Noodler's, 3 x Diamine, 1 x Private Reserve and 1 x Pelikan) and the Aurora Black stands out. Exceptionally smooth (and I don't think it is a lubricating ink), very dark and absolutely beautiful with Fine and Medium nibs (so far). Even if I find another black, I will certainly re-order this one. And even though everyone keeps saying it, I have to chime in too. Goulet absolutely rocks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An Average Black I heard a lot about Aurora Black, including many touting its unparalleled superiority compared to other black inks. Perhaps my expectations influenced me, but I found this ink to be underwhelming. In my Lamy Safari; it wrote wet, yet the feeling as the nib moved along the paper was scratchy. The color was fine, it was definitely a black, but nothing that stood out to a huge extent. If anyone is curious, although you can't tell if you're regularly writing with the ink, the ink has purplish undertones if diluted. Overall I would not recommend it compared to other very popular blacks. It's expensive and doesn't come with anything that sets it apart (like water resistance)...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not quite dark enough. I've been on the hunt for the blackest, non-shading, well behaved, velvety black ink. I ordered this sample based on several good reviews and recommendations, but alas, it doesn't quite fit the bill. It is a very dark and well saturated black and seems to flow and lubricate well in the pens I've used it in. However, in comparison to Visconti Black and Levenger Raven Black (my current favorites), it seems to be a touch lighter. I also noted that this ink does seem to shade a small amount as well. It's a very nice ink, but I think my search is continuing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Ultimate Black Pen Ink I'm so pleased The Goulet Pen Comany is now selling this wonderful ink. I started using Aurora Black about 30-years ago, as the most perfect black ink made. It still is. Deep, pure blacks, the best flow you can get from any nib, smooth roller-bearing like glide, good dry time, low bleed-through, outstanding longevity, no clog, safe pen ink. The Aurora Blue ink is almost as good, but I don't like the Royal Blue cast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought a Lamy Safari and Aurora Black ink Lamy Safari first of all was an amazing buy for a first fountain pen and being a left-hander. Unimaginable fluidity coupled with a funky smoothness made this an absolute winner for me. Couple this with the Aurora black ink which was a super dark black ink that dried so quickly, it is a winning combination for sure. The service of this website is nothing short of amazing and handwritten note from Alex Ross shows a personal touch which I do appreciate. I WILL buy from you guys again soon that's for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ink and etc. Most recent order of Aurora Black ink arrived on time and with a smile on the box! Black is black and smooth as silk. Orders from Goulet Pen Company always arrive very very quickly, complete and well labelled, and wrapped like Crown Jewels. More recent orders have included a Leuchtturm1917. I use 3-4 of these journals per year. They are expensive and relatively hard to find. Goulet Pen has them readily available and at the most reasonable price. I enjoy perusing Goulet's stock online and have always received great service. I also enjoy their newsletters and how-to videos. Can't get much better.
