The Commonwealth Pen Show in Boston has had the good fortune to have Noodler's Ink create some exclusive inks for the show. There have been some very unique inks offered and I look forward to later this year when I hope to attend and see what will be available. Thanks to an inky friend I've received generous samples of the inks from these shows.

 

This ink, Suffragist Carmine, replicates/approximates the color of the ink used at the voting stations in some places in Massachusetts once women were granted the right to vote in the US through the 19th amendment. Nathan Tardif has a video somewhere that explains the meaning.

 

This is a nice, desaturated pink ink. I often don't like pink as it is often presented in its most offensive: bright or shocking pink. The pink that appears on flowers and in nature is much more subdued, gentle, and approachable. This ink reminds me much more of the color of flowers. This is a very fast drying ink. But it's not very waterproof, some water resistance, but not lots. Not shady, nor with sheen. It is pleasant like a delicate flower. This ink is unobtanium. It was limited edition, with the rest sold through Goulet Pens, and all sold out now.

 

Pen: Edison Premiere (M-steel)

Papers: MvL=Mohawk via Linen, TR=Tomoe River, Hij=Hammermill 28 lb inkjet, Rhodia=Rhodia 90g ivory.

Thanks for the review.  This is a nice looking ink -- makes me really sorry I wasn't able to get to the Commonwealth Show this time around (I made the trek in 2015).

Thank you for doing this review, White Lotus.  I love this ink and I am now using it as my "signature" ink on business letters.  I love using pinks.  It also looks great in my pen.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
