This week we are looking at black inks, and today’s is Waterman Intense Black. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Intense Black is a nice basic black.
In large swabs the ink looks more blue-black with some sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was some feathering and just a little bit of bleeding.
Overall, its a nice basic black with just a little bit of shading, and pretty affordable too.
