De Atramentis Document Ink

Seems there is another option for permanent fountain pen inks:

Goulet Pens posted that they just stocked up:

I'm not getting any at this time (still busy with the endless project), but if anyone does try this, I'd love to see the results and get your opinions.

I use the De Atramentis Archive Ink (Black) in a Lamy Safari. I don't have much experience with other inks but can attest that De Atramentis is great. It dries really quickly and is truly waterproof. I do watercolour washes on top all the time and haven't had any problems. It probably varies a lot on the paper but I don't have much problem with bleeding/feathering either. Great to have an affordable alternative to Noodlers or Platinum Carbon available in the UK.

Thanks for your reply, johunter.
I read in a few places that these inks are pigment based. That would be good. And they say they are very fluid. Not necessarily good. Too fluid might make the lines overly fat. Do you find that you cannot get a very fine line with the De Atramentis Archive ink? I wonder if that is the same as the Document Ink? Anyway, if anyone gets these and also uses Noodlers Black or any of the carbon inks we've discussed in this forum, please show us a comparison.
Thanks.
