Kaweco Pearl Black Fountain Pen Ink

Kaweco Pearl Black is a pure black fountain pen ink that is sold both as cartridges and in 30 ml bottles. It’s one of our favorite black fountain pen inks.

The ink is sold in a glass bottle and in international short fountain pen cartridges.

Pearl Black is relatively quick-drying with a very black color. It’s not the purest black color we’ve used, that’s generally the Aurora Black, but it’s close. The only other tone in it is a touch of grey.

This is not generally considered a premium or luxury ink, but it is a nice writer with a thick, luxurious feel to it.

Pearl Black is a nice writing ink that is a bit thick, but doesn’t gum up a fountain pen. Is black on black with the barest hit of grey but no other colors. The grey can mainly been seen when viewed on an angle or through chromatography, but isn’t readily apparent.

Pearl Black has very little bleedthrough and isn’t damaging or harsh on paper.

The main strength of this ink is that it’s a pure black with limited shading and a very high level of opacity.
