Its a great colour, I am not one who normally buys lighter colours but made an exception on this one, not sure I will ever get through 3oz though. Let me know if you want to trade 30ml of it.


First bottle of Noodlers that I have bought, I was surprised when i took the cap off that it looked more like paint than ink, writes just great though, but better in a fine nibbed pen, tried it in a broad Parker and it ran wide.


Also, it is a good ink for mixing, the smallest amount of darker blue and it is approaching Sapphire.

I want, but I need to know that it is the blue in the top picture before I get it.


The price to here is not too bad, US$22 including shipping.

The colour looks correct to me.

I have been very disappointed with this ink to the point that I have thrown it away.


I had very different results than reviews and tests with a lot of bleedthrough, ink spread on the written page, a fine nib produced a BB line.I persevered with a number of nibs and papers, even tried mixing and dilution. Dilution at 80% worked and stopped the bleedthrough and controlled the ink spread but at that point it stopped being a workable color. Tried mixing the ink with a dry ink, I used Pelikan but that wasnt a success.


Perhaps I was just unlucky with a bad batch, someone maybe held the wetting agent jet spray button a little too long.

I'm from a town about 20 mile north of Hartlepool and we give them a lot of stick for it.

One of the guys I play football with we call Hanger, for that reason

When I saw this threat, I knew I've seen Nathan talked about it in one of his videos...all his new inks are very fascinating to me.


Here is the link of the video Committee of Safety 1774  The story of The Monkey Hanger Ink starts at 35:58 is a long video though...totally worth to watch if you like Noodler's!!!

In the early 2000s the position of Mayor of Hartlepool fell vacant. The good citizens of Hartlepool could vote for a range of candidates sponsored by all the major political parties ... or a guy dressed up as a monkey, promising free bananas.


The monkey won and served as Mayor of Hartlepool.


And that's true that is.

I remember seeing a story on the news a few years ago about somewhere here in the US (possibly here in PA) where a cat got elected mayor or to town council. Not some guy dressed up as a cat.  An actual cat....

I suspect the owner registered the cat and managed to somehow get enough signatures to put the critter on the ballot as a protest vote.  And people thought it was funny enough that they voted it into office.

Given some of the council people we've had over the years in the town I live in, a cat might very well be an improvement.  My husband and I used to got to the council meetings when we first moved here (partly at first to find out what was going on with the parcel sub-divided off ours before we bought it -- our house was an estate sale and the hook of the L-shaped parcel got subdivided off, possibly to make the rest of the property more marketable: i.e., the heirs were asking way to much for the property to begin with).  So at one point, this woman got elected to council and she started off her career by whining about how things were "different" in a place downriver (a much wealthier community, BTW).  And had to be told (more than once, as I recall) that "this ISN'T Sewickley...."  Another night, after people were making motions left right and sideways, she asked "How do you make a motion?"  (Apparently she had never read stuff like Robert's Rules of Order -- admittedly, I haven't either, but I wasn't on town council...).  

One night she actually said something that made sense (having to do with increasing parking at the library by letting people park on the street the driveway was off of).  My husband and I were looking at each other, kinda going "It's a sign of the impending Apocalypse!  She said something that MADE SENSE!" (Turns out it couldn't be done because of state regs about that size road, but still, it made sense....)  Well, about 20 minutes late she said something complete inane (that might have been the night where she asked how to make a motion, I don't remember now).  And reassured our faith in humanity.  I said something once about the dimwit to a friend who lives halfway across town, about I how I couldn't understand how the woman had gotten elected, and that I was happy she didn't represent our ward....  And my friend looked a little sick and said "She's OUR ward...."  (I think the idiot did not run for reelection...).
