Now Flowing Better for Me

An update on my previous review in which I reported hard starts: it now is working much better in my Kaweco Sport. I don't know why that is, but I'm happy.

Love the Color But...

I really like the way this ink looks but it's very hard-starting in my Kaweco Sport. I need to dip the nib in water to get it going after not using the pen for even just a few hours.

Love this Ink.

I'm still using them but in my Kaweco Sport. I'm new to the Fountain Pen world and didn't realize the size. Thankfully I had a pen I could use these in. I'll be getting more of this ink but maybe in a bottle.

Mixed feelings

I bought document ink because I'd been told it was water-resistant, and I wanted to use it in combination with watercolor art. Even after allowing the ink to dry on the paper for several days, it still smears when I brush watercolor paint over it. The ink itself is fine for writing, but it doesn't work as I had hoped it would with watercolor paint.

Convenient and reliable

I count on waterproof inks, and the De Atramentis formula is great. These cartridges are great for travel and pocket pens � this ink now lives in my Traveler's Company brass pen. I hope more shades, like Dark Green and Violet, become available in cartridges.
