Long time lurker first time poster
I'd like to jump straight into it and go ahead and say that I've been having problems (or should i say A problem) with my Noodlers Bulletproof black.
It's an absolutely wonderful ink in pretty much every way, except one.
My 'Online German: Event' Pen doesn't seem to agree with the Noodlers ink.
(I have a Noodlers Flex pen inked up in Noodlers black which works perfectly fine)
I've inked it up through a converter and for about, I would say the first page and a half of writing, it writes fine. It flows well with no skipping etc.
However once that 1-2 page thresh-hold has been passed the problems occur:
- The flow becomes weaker and the nib starts to dry out
- Minor skipping occurs (some shaking and tapping remedies this)
- Flow becomes near non-existent
- Every second stroke skips (No amount of shaking or tapping or wetting the nib remedies this)
I've went back and talked to the boutique owner and he says that he's not surprised that an American ink, especially the 'Bulletproof' line, works poorly with a European pen.
At first I thought that maybe there was a problem with the nib/feed.
However after purchasing some J-Herbin and Mont-Blanc inks I'm starting to think he may be right.
MY PEN WRITES PERFECTLY!!
It's a very wet writer and has never skipped or been prone to dry or anything of the sort.
I decided to brave the Noodlers in my Online German again, but alas, the same exact problem.
I've recently read a post somewhere that the Noodlers 'Bulletproof' line is not a very well lubricated ink and is prone to flowing problems.
Anyway tell me what you guys think of my situation and if you've had any similar problems with any of the Noodlers inks.
