Perfect, except for packaging

Comments about Blick Black Cat Waterproof India Ink:
I bought the small 1.25 oz of ink and the ink is perfectly black, waterproof and will last a lifetime. The only thing is the screw on top of the glass container had trouble closing completely and it ended up spilling ink on more than one occasion. This might of been a one time defect though.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great ink for using with my fountain pen
By Leica Mike
from Seaford, NY
This ink beats the "name brand" inks by being blacker and more waterproof. The small bottle has a wide opening. When you dip your pen, it is much less likely to pick up ink and get on your fingers than the traditional bottle. When dry, the lines survived soaking with multiple watercolor washes. What more could you ask?
Would buy again

Excellent india ink
from Lansing, MI
Quite possibly the most matte, black ink I've ever used. I am able to refill my pentel pocket brush pen with this ink and I quite prefer this ink over the original pentel ink. Also some of the most fluid ink I've used so that was an unexpected bonus- it feels much thinner than the ink I've previously used.
Nice ink, but more water-resistant than waterproof.
I have not yet used this ink extensively, but here are a few things I found after some simple testing.I would call this ink water resistant, but not waterproof on paper. After letting it dry, there is a significant amount of liftoff when brushing across the dry ink with a wet brush. The ink does not bleed when rewetted (the edges remain crisp and sharp), but clean water on a brush becomes a grey wash. I don't think I will be able to use this ink under watercolor as I had hoped, and instead I will have to ink on top as a finish layer until I find a different ink.Drying time felt slightly long, but ink dries a very nice mate black, with no sheen to it, and was a good consistency right out of the bottle for my dip pens.
