Another UK exclusive from Noodler's - BREXIT! Available from Niche Pens/Pure Pens here in the UK. A smashing bullet-proof ink which is a deep/royal blue, possible with slight purple undertones. It reminds me a little of a 'dark' Diamine Imperial Blue or J Herbin's Bleu Nuit.
Here's what Ross and his team say:
New and exclusive Royal Blue/Purple Bulletproof Ink in 3 oz glass bottle (Approx 90ml)
Nathan Tardif is a follower of world politics and current affairs, with a soft spot for the United Kindom.
When the UK made the momentous decision and voted to leave the European Union, Nathan had the idea of making an ink to mark this event.
A tongue-in-cheek label suggests that the UK have come around to the idea of independence from a sovereign ruler in another country, much like their own former colony did a couple of hundred years before!
Incidentally, there's a lovely little story on the label which I'll type here.
'An Apology to His Majesty, King George III of The United Kingdom.
We humbly regret that at long last we have come to agree with the rebels in the colony of Massachusetts that liberty is worth the risk of defiance to all the powers of the sovereign (particularly the bureaucrats in Brussels).
So humbly and regretfully sorry about this, but we do send good wishes. The ink is royal purple, eternally bulletproof and pH neutral so as not to risk further offence to His Majesty.'
Note: not my political views, one way or another - just what's written on the label!
It's a nice ink but a little prone to a bit of feathering on some papers. As usual. the written review is on Rhodia 80g/m2 and the soak tests are on 'indifferent' paper.
Soak test before...
...and after: 30 minutes soak followed by a rinse.
I like this ink more than Monkey Hanger, as it is a deeper colour. It will make a nice change to Prime of the Commons!
