Here's my review of Noodler's Black ink. Not a whole lot that can be said about this ink that hasn't already been said. The only complaint I have with this ink that is actually a deal breaker for me is that it smudges quite a lot from a highlighter and after drying for a while. It doesn't really seem to ever dry for me, it could be that the bottle I have has a higher concentration of dye that if I dilute it with water it will solve the problem, but I haven't had a chance to play around with that yet. It's a very nice black ink, well behaved and is a bullet proof ink so it's going anywhere anytime soon. Some people love this ink, and I can understand why, but I personally can't get on the wagon with it yet, need to experiment with dilution a little to convince me. As it stands I can't get past the fact that it just won't dry and a highlighter smudges it a lot.

Here's my review.

Here's the water test. For this I wrote on a small Rhodia pad and after letting the ink dry for several minutes ran it under tap water for a few seconds.

A good review because it's nice to see someone say that this ink isn't necessarily 'the best thing since sliced bread'. A British expression but appropriate, nevertheless.

Good review, thanks.

You posted about dilution, could you please post you experience on it. There has been a lot of recommendations for the dilution but the compare and contrast is lacking.

I bought Noodler's Black after reading positive reviews on teh forum. I've been disappointed in that it seems to turn to a gray on the cheap paper I normally use. I would love to find a true, deep black. Appreciate your review.

I've used Black on the cheapest, worst papers and it stays BLACK for me. HAd the same smudging problem myself, diluted my bottle a substantial amount and it fixed the problem and the ink is still as black as can be.
