Blackstone Ink Review

Daintree Green

Blackstone is company based out of Australia and currently have 5 ink colors in their line up. Until recently, Blackstone inks came in a powder and to use them we would have to add distilled water to the powders to liquify the ink. I am so glad that they decided to get away from that idea. Anderson Pens was the only site in the US that I could find that sells this brand of ink.

The pen used for this test was a Jinhao x750 Frosted Black with a broad #6 Goulet Pens Nib.

Daintree Green is influenced by the Daintree Rain Forest in the Northern coast of Australia. The green here is lush, dark and has a high saturation.

Water resistance is low and what remains is not very recoverable as the ink explodes with water unlike the rain forest of its namesake.

All in all, I love the ink color and the flow is perfect for me. I tend to like darker inks and this one is one of my all time favorite greens.


  • Deep, rich color
  • High Saturation
  • Good flow, not too wet
  • Affordable
  • Not water resistant
  • Little to no shading
  • Only can be purchased from one US retailer, as far as I know
  • Only available in 30mL bottles
This review is based off of my opinion and experience. I am not compensated by nor affiliated with Blackstone or Anderson Pens. I purchased this ink outright.
