Here's an interesting—though perpetually misbehaving—ink from Noodler's V-Mail series.

It's the first ink I haven't been able to fit in the title section.

The dip nib for this review was the Leonardt Extra Fine Principal (which I promptly misspelled).

I love the yellowish color of this ink, I just wish it was better behaved.

I couldn't get OO to work properly, either. For me, it was drying up in my nib and clogging it. I mixed it with some Noodler's Rabaul Red (another flat ink) and came up with a very pleasing pumpkin tone.

It still bleeds through paper, but it at least flows well now.

Seems to me that this ink is misbehaving similar to Noodler's Bad Green Gator. Looks like a lot of spread and feathering which just kills any ink for me no matter how much I may like the color.

Thank you for the effort.

I bought this ink not knowing it would misbehave... Boy does it misbehave!

For me it doesn't feather, but it bleeds not even through one sheet but into the next! :headsmack: On Clairefontaine and Rhodia!!! Ooooffff!

I love the color though! I just have no opportunity to use it, and it has been untouched for over a year sadly.
