Found the grail permanent black!

I've been using Platinum Carbon Black--which is an excellent ink--but longed for a truer, richer black both for art and writing. I visit to Anderson Pens Chicago and Lisa's excellent advice led me to order a sample of this ink, which I otherwise never would have done.
I make reference pages with five types of paper, and when I compared this ink to Platinum I was blown away. It is a true black, not the 85-90% gray of Platinum Carbon, and just as water-resistant. It also flows beautifully. Indeed, it is one of the blackest blacks I've seen. I'll be picking up a bottle on my next trip to the store.

best of black

I compare Faber-Castell Carbon Black with Aurora Black. The latter is usually compared to J. Herbin Perle Noir, with preferences fairly evenly divided between the two. My own preference is Faber-Castell Carbon Black. It has the same rich velvet flow of Aurora Black, but is one stage more saturated. Highly recommended.
