Set of 4 Carbon Black fountain pen ink cartridges to fit Platinum pens. This is slightly different than conventional fountain pen ink, because it is pigmented instead of dye-based. This makes it very permanent and lightfast, though it does require more diligent maintenance in your fountain pen. It's ideal for brush pens and fountain pens being used on paper where you need ink to dry on the surface instead of soaking in.

Platinum Carbon Black (Cartridges)

Set of 4 Carbon Black fountain pen ink cartridges to fit Platinum pens. This is slightly different than conventional fountain pen ink, because it is pigmented instead of dye-based. This makes it very permanent and lightfast, though it does require more diligent maintenance in your fountain pen. It's ideal for brush pens and fountain pens being used on paper where you need ink to dry on the surface instead of soaking in.

This waterproof, pigment-based carbon ink is highly regarded by artists, and is a standard for ink-washing and mixed media work where you need to draw a line that will later be washed overtop.

Caution: Pigmented inks are intended for use in fountain pens, though they require more diligent maintenance and should not be left to dry out in a pen. It is best to clean it from your pen at least once a week to prevent clogging. Certain pens may handle pigmented inks better than others.

Platinum Carbon Black (Cartridges) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Platinum Carbon Black Those three words, "Platinum Carbon Black", really do sum it all up. If you like the ink, you'll appreciate the convenience that having it in a cartridge provides... as long as your pen accepts Platinum or Kuretake cartridges. I use these in both an older Platinum FP and a Kuretake Brush Pen and am quite happy with the color saturation and its permanance. As with other pigmented inks, remember to flush and clean thoroughly and often to prevent clogs. I'm not sure if it's my penchant for cleaning or the method I use (flush w/ amonia solution, clear-water flush, soak overnight in amonia sol, flush, slightly soapy solution, flush x3 w/ "enema bulb") but I've never had any clogging issues in the five-plus years I've been using these cartridges. ... Oh, and I love the little ball inside that keeps things flowing and not getting that bubble that forms in some cartridges that you've got to flick to move... and if you're like me, getting spatters of ink all over while you're at it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Platinum Carbon ink is wonderful stuff Haven't needed the extra cartridges because I'm still using the one that came with my Platinum Desk pen. Great ink. I have a bottle of Platinum Carbon blue too, another good one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Waterproof Sketching Ink I use this ink for sketches that I want to wash over with watercolor. It is perfect for that, dries super fast, and does not bleed into the watercolor when wet over. The cartridges are good to carry for outdoor refills, and seem to last a long time. For home use I prefer the bottled version with a converter. It's no wonder that it is so popular in the sketching communities... it's- a basic 'must-have' for every sketch kit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes the Preppy into a waterproof everyday writer Dark, full lines, great flow putting this into a Preppy. The ink isn't necessarily as distinctive, but it is waterproof and light-fast. Dries nicely, too. A bit pricey, but you're paying for getting these properties in a fountain pen "format." Cartridges are a bit confusing at first—NOTE: the wide end is the bottom, to be punctured.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black and Waterproof I recently purchased Platinum Black pen cartridges for my field pen. I am an ornithologist and often have my field notes get wet. The cartridges were not only convenient in the field (no bottle of ink) but the ink was waterproof and worked well for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The artist's Gold Standard This is my regular ink for working on pen and ink with fountain pens. It is the only truly waterproof, UV proof fountain pen ink out there. You can do a wash or watercolor over it in about 5 seconds.
