Thanks for the informative video.
I was not aware that Nathan had another pen model out. I was also not aware that fountain pen ink could be used in a rollerball.
Any problems with leakage from the tip?

Hey Dizzy, thank you, that was a nice video review. It's good you mentioned the Dollar similarity because I was wondering about that. A couple of questions: Is this pen already in the market, and if so do you know how much? I understand that the tip of this pen is replaceable. Did your pen come with replacement tips?

BTW, good to see you on video, so to speak. :)

Thanks! That was most useful and informative. I'm another one curious about availability and price.

Edited to add that I found them at the bottom of the page here--currently out of stock, but more expected within a few days.

Dizzy, how wet is this pen?

Does ink laid down with it feather/bleed more or less than a similar pen (like your Dollar 717i) with the same ink?

I ask because I need to use an office-supplied diary at work that has truly execrable paper. The only ink that won't feather/bleed is Lamy Blue-Black in a Parker 45. Now while that is a perfectly respectable ink, it is boring. I'd like to use something like Visconti blue, or maybe even my new Wancher imari Blue, without the paper acting like toilet paper.

Yes, the pen is on the market. As you can see from the replies, it's available at isellpens.com . It goes for $14. They are currently sold out.

Yes, the tips are replaceable, but no, it does not come with extra tips. For the extra tips you have to mail a letter and $1 to Noodler's. They will mail back the replacements.

Thanks for the comments/compliments. :)

Now while that is a perfectly respectable ink, it is boring. I'd like to use something like Visconti blue, or maybe even my new Wancher imari Blue, without the paper acting like toilet paper.


I haven't had any feathering bleeding issues, but then again Bad Blue Heron doesn't give me very many problems. The pen lays down a smooth line of average wetness. It's similar to my Lamy Vista, but not as wet a line as the Dollar 717i. It's average. Probably 5 of 10.

I'd imagine that Visconti Blue would work quite well in these pens.

Thanks for the review - very nicely done.
I have both Kaweco and Monteverdi refillable roller-balls. In both cases, the ball makes a grinding sound like writing on sand paper (with every type of ink I've tried). Does the Noodler's pen have a similar problem?

noodler's #41 brown makes it pretty wet. and yes, mine makes a noise when i write, particularly loud for long horizontal lines. no complaints, though, as it was $14.

Thanks Dizzy,

It looks like this is another pen to go on my Must Have list, along with one of his clear pens for BSB, an'a Vacuum TWSBI, an'a Pilot Standard, an'a Platinum Plaisir, an'a Pilot 823 Custom... anybody want to make an offer on a First-Born, so I can afford these?

Very informative review. I love the name, concept, and art that comes along with the pen, but I don't like the pen itself. I might pick up one for my mom though.

That's actually cheaper than isellpens has it. I think isellspens' shipping is like $7.
