Bravo!

These are the reasons Noodler's Black is my favorite ink! Seeing is believing.

Yup, I've gown quite fond of Noodlers Black ever since I got my first bottle.

I actually bought a second bottle, even though the first one is still full... Posted Image

I'm not that greedy... Posted Image

Need a pen repaired or a nib re-ground? I'd love to help you out.

The Parker '51' that's in my pocket right now is filled with this "King of Inks".

Another plus is the how easily this ink washes off skin.

the regular black IS bulletproof! the only non-bulletproof Noodler's blacks are Borealis Black, Bernanke Black and Dark Matter.

+1 Me too.

Besides being waterproof and fraud-resistant, this what I really like about Noodler's Black.

Noodler's Black (aka bulletproof black) bonds chemically to cellulose but not to skin.

I have 2 bottles of 4.5oz, even when my 3oz bottle is still 3/4 full. I like it so much i was really afraid they would not sell it anymore. That is what usually hapens with good inks, like MB Racing Green, i never got a chance to use it because they do not sell it anymore. Isn't that stupid? Why would anyone want to stop manufacturing a good, succesful ink? Yet, that is what they do on times. Conclussion: Just buy more Noodler's Black, man. Why? Well, because... because i just cannot understand life anylonger without Noodler's Black in some of my FP's.
This ink is all i have ever wanted in a balck ink. It is just perfect! Flows great, cleans right, looks amazing.
You guys think they will be still selling it in 5 years?

A Fountain Pen is never just a Fountain Pen.

It can take abuse ...



It's when that's my shirt with a big ink stain that I remember why I like washable inks. And yes it has happened to me several times, but I have yet to seriously or completely lose a document or notebook to water.

Yeah. I wouldn't use Noodler's Black then, if I were you. It's okay. You don't have to.

Me, I wear a lot of black. Heh.

That's a beautiful thing. Plus Nathan's inks are so concentrated, you could likely dilute with equal parts water, and not be able to tell the difference.
With the new FPN rules, now I REALLY don't know what to put in my signature.

Great stuff. I mostly use it for the great flow and darkness - I don't have to count on the extra properties much, but I did sign my last check with it just in case :thumbup:

+1 on coming off your hands easily - it usually just rubs off of my fingers :notworthy1:
