 Haha. Really? I don't know if that's good or bad.


Good, definitely good!

Strange...  I got my sample of BBH today and inked up my pen straight away.


Quite dissapointed. Mine is not as dark as yours, not by far. Mine is more turquoise, and looks quite faded. I didn't expect a dark blue, but definetly a darke blue than what I got.

Also the nib creep is terrible on my Lamy AL-star F, but I've heard that it's quite common with the bulletproofs.

I have an older bottle that is a very dark, attractive color. I did notice in a newer sample that I got from a goulet sample bundle that it was much greener and less attractive. Noodler's can be very inconsistent in this aspect.

Livening up this post from the past for current inquirers.  Noodler's BBH is now definitely a teal in most of my pens.  I tried a bottle in a retail shop and ordered one online.  Both are in the green class vs dark blue.  It is amazing how different this ink appears coming out of different pens.  But it is in the teal direction from them all.  Online color samples from Goulet, JetPens, etc do not reflect the current color of this ink.  But I love teal and the permanence of several Noodlers.

I just filled from a sample a few days ago, and I've got a moderately dark medium blue -- I can see little, if any, green in it.  I like it a lot, but man, looking at other peoples' pictures and hearing other peoples' descriptions, I'm almost inclined to think I got a mislabeled sample.  But consistency seems to be a bit of a bugbear for Noodler's, so in general, if I get an ink from Noodler's that I like (whether or not it's what I expected), I just enjoy it for as long as it lasts.
