Though I was surprised by how dark this ink can actually get, normal writing with this ink tends to lean towards the gray side. The ink is well behaved and is a good solid black, but if you are seeking an ink that is truly intense and unwavering, this is probably not your black ink. It is not very water resistant so I would be hesitant to use it on important documents, but it is definitely reliable in many other ways, and I could see it being used for every day writing for notes and the like. This cooler toned black has no outstanding qualities, but is nonetheless a decent black ink.

    I thought I was the only one! Finally someone who acknowledges this ink writes gray. Claiming to be intense black? Noodler’s black is intensely black. Aurora Black is as saturated as the shadows of nightmares. This ink writes gray. Full stop.
