Pelikan Edelstein Onyx

Black is a staple color in the ink stable, and depending on the onyx referenced I would say that Pelikan Edelstein Onyx makes the mark. As a black it is quite sound indeed and is in fact quite devoid of shading. That much is good in a black.  Smudging wise it is actually quite resilient, though I definitely cannot guarantee its legibility upon a dedicated dunking.
