I love the rich black hue of this ink and the slight gloss of the finish, but it's not waterproof. A damp finger will smear the ink and I wouldn't even attempt putting a watercolour wash across it like I'd originally intended.

My Favorite Sumi Ink
Posted By: L.A. Carr
I began using this for my pointed pen calligraphy and have been delighted!! I am careful about cleaning my nibs after working so I've had no problems... even my best vintage nibs are still fine. Nice scent, love the sheen.

Favorite Sumi Ink

I use this for nearly all my pointed pen work super fine hairlines and solid broad strokes.
I love the the sheen, but that's me. I clean my nibs carefully when I'm through and my good vintage nibs are still doing just fine. Love this stuff!!!

Moon Palace Ink
Posted By: Deborah Kaplan
I love this ink! Moon Palace Ink is my new choice, after decades of dealing with Higgens Eternal's leaky bottles and greyish ink.
Moon Palace ink is black-black, doesn't easily smear, and writes beautifully, whether for copperplate or broad pen.

This is my go to and it's a dream. Not even close to as corrosive as iron gull. Clean with water and wipe. Dark black very thin or thick lines and behaves on all the papers my other inks work on. Try it!
