    Baystate Blue

    Give your honest opinion on it. Love or hate?
  2. Hi, I read many reviews about Noodler's black saying that it is one of the darkness/blackest ink in the market. I don't know if my bottles have a problem, but I'm obtaining a very light black. I'm attaching a test comparing two bottles of Noodler's, Parker Quink and Montblanc. As you can see Parker is 10 times stronger that Noodler's. The text is written with a Pelikan M200 using the noodler's black bottle 1. Any idea what could be happening here? Kind regards, AM

    Noodler's Apache Sunset

    This is one of those inks that is legendary in the FP world. I don’t know that I’ve ever heard of someone who absolutely hates it, and I don’t know that I’ve heard that much about people who are relatively indifferent to it. I wish I could be one of those people, but sorrynotsorry, this is going to be another gushing review for this ink. Like I said above, at first I didn’t see what all the hoopla was about. Then I switched to the notebook I have started using for my ink reviews and the beautiful shading really started to show itself. In case you are super new to fountain pens or
  4. Recently started using a bottle of Private reserve ebony blue, that I've had for around six years or so. I'm really enjoying it actually, and really love the sheen it has. Works really well on the natural ivory colour of Tomoe river white paper which I normally use. I'm looking into buying more PR inks soon, and just wondered which others have that very saturated appearance, and also produce a sheen. Many thanks Sach
  5. Hi folks, this is my first post on FPN. I would like to thank everyone who has posted reviews as it made my life so much easier in selecting new pens. Here is a letter I wrote using a Noodler's Konrad Pen with Noodler's Black. I changed the flex nib out for a Goulet 1.1mm stub. The letter is not technically a review, but more my reaction to an interview of Nathan Tardif by David Goulet. However it may give you an idea on how the pen writes. I used cheap printer paper and was pleasently surprised by the results. Anyway, if you appriciciate what Noodler's stand for and enjoy there product
  6. If this is considered a double of my thread about modern flex pens, please delete the other thread. I've been researching modern flex pens as I've been having problems with an Indian one which I bought recently (it won't flow) and can't get an answer from the company. I've narrowed down the options to one of the Noodler's flex pens: Nib Creaper, Konrad, or Ahab. Does anyone have experience with these pens? Which one of the three would you recommend for its flexiness and good ink flow, as well as just the look and feel of the pen? I have read that the Goulet's have great customer service,
  7. Here's my current squad. There are a few more pens not inked and a few more inks not used, but these are combinations I've found to work perfectly. http://i.imgur.com/8WuvXQr.jpg Any questions about either pens or inks welcomed - it's half 5 in the morning here and I've been up over two hours already...
  8. To followers of Ahab threads, Over the past two days, I have turned two unusable dogs into excellent writers. Because I did three things, I can't say that all three are essential, but two of the three definitely are. However, it has raised a question I would love to kick around with you. Here is what I did, which all came from advice from Drone and Brian Goulet: 1. Cleaned the channel with the BACK, not the blade, of an Exacto knife. 2. Cleaned the entire feed with a grease cutting dish soap (blue Dawn). 3. Heat set the nib (thanks to Brian Goulet for his excellent how-to video). 4. Tested
  9. You can really cut an Ahab feed in two ways: 1. Chip away some of the fin wall to make the channel wider, or: 2. Cut the fins that do not open into the center channel so that they do reach the center channel. I have a supply of feeds to experiment on coming soon. I'm curious if folks have more success with approach #1, #2, or combining both ways. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this already well-hashed topic. I've read loads of posts including SamCapote's detailed Opening Up Fin Vents, but SamCapote seems to focus only on #1, which is more difficult to do than #2, so I dared to op

    Nightshade - Noodler's

    Noodler's inks aren't easily obtainable in Europe. That's a pity because I find many of them interesting and quite unique. Nightshade is one of these cool colors - it's hard to say what color it is? It has some accents of colors I really like: brown, purple and red.

  11. Hi all, I'm in the UK but have fallen in love with a small number of Noodler's Inks, not to mention their fab pens. Purepens.co.uk seem to be the only stockist here and they have a tiny selection, but I've just managed to buy some Blue Ghost from them - I've been lusting after that ink for ages as I mainly write to my godchildren and they will LOVE any secret messages I'll include in my letters! I also bought some Bulletproof Black as it has such good reviews. So, my question is - what's the best way to get hold of Noodler's Inks if you live in the UK? I ordered some sealing wax from Atel
  12. Hello, I was wondering if anyone knows any similar color to Noodler's El Lawrence. I am a big fan of murky/earthy ink colors (fervent user of Zhivago, R&K Sepia and Herbin Lie de The) and would really like to try out El Lawrence, but I can't find it in any EU store (although it's part of the UK series?!). From what I saw in writing samples, the color seems pretty similar to R&K Sepia, albeit a bit greener. What do you think? Thanks! Cheers, Dragos
  13. Hi all, this is my first attempt at a review so please excuse the poor color balance. I'm ashamed to say as a photographer that paper is quite challenging! I just received several samples from Goulet Pens and am having a ball trying them out. What better way to enhance the enjoyment than to come here and share... so here goes. Noodler's Kiowa Pecan: I love this golden brown with tons of shading! What a pleasant surprise. As far as drying time, not great but that's not something I'm really worried about, for my purposes. This was done on cheap card stock, as opposed to Fabr

    Is Noodler's Ink Good For Sonnet?

    I did use Noodler's ink for a very short time. Therefore, I'm not an expert on it. I heard that Noodler's inks are very good since I heard about it everywhere. Is it OK if I use Noodler's ink (maybe I'll buy blue) on a Parker Sonnet? If yes, which blue do you recommend (which do you like the best)? -William S. Park

    Help Me Choose Noodler's Ink

    Oh guys I really need your help This is my third day trafficking goulet website Friend of mine is coming to visit UK and she has agreed to bring me a bottle... Please give me your advice...you know things I don't know I want Noodler's ink for 1.1stub nib and flex pen. Good shading ink. The only one I own so far is Apache Sunset. My daily inks are usually turquoise (Lamy, Sheaffer) I like green inks, but I own way too many (Bad Green Gator?) My first choice would be BSIAR (is it too similar to Diamine Tyrian Purple?) Wouldn't mind girly pink (don't have one yet) I'm not too big on blue

  19. Brian Goulet just made an awesome video on "Back to School", a guide for using fountain pens in school. It's something that I've been looking for and this summer I just got into fountain pens. The video is very informative. http://www.inknouveau.com/2014/08/fp101-back-to-school-shopping.html One thing I want to point out, everyone says that if you write in cursive it will improve your memory because you have to concentrate more on what you're writing, I disagree with this. I write everything in cursive and I have done so for years now, so writing in cursive is effortless for me, no it's not

    Choosing A Black Ink.

    I'm looking for a very saturated, very permanent black ink for regular use. I've got a sample of Noodler's Bad Black Moccasin that I've been enjoying--it is indeed very black, and I like the way it feels with the pens and papers I've tried it with--almost slippery. But I hear that Heart of Darkness is even blacker, and that's really appealing to me. Folks who have tried both: how do they compare?
  22. So, the cost for Noodler's, Diamine and Toucan inks are downright inexpensive compared to Caran d' Ache and retail on Pilot Iroshizuku. Of course, we all search for deals or spend money with our favorite retailers. The question from Top Pen was should he spend the extra money on CdA? Let's hear from you inky buyers. (Because we all know Amber doesn't need a reason to buy ink).

    Any Nathan Tardif News?

    What is Noodler's up to these days? I miss hearing about Nathan's latest ink and fountain pen experiments. Have I missed any news? It seems quiet. And I'm bummed I can't get the large bottles of Noodler's ink any more. eta: I seem to remember there was going to be a Noodler's music nib... did that ever materialize?

    Noodler's Liberty's Elysium

    Don't forget to take my flex pen poll and win a brand new, high performance flex pen! So I was on my quest for the perfect blue when I heard about a vibrant, waterproof, true blue. I jumped at the chance to try it. So far, my favorite pen to use with this ink is a Parker 21, and I just adore it with plain, basic cursive italic. Here are some comparison photos of some comparable blues on a few papers: World's cheapest notebook paper. (I bought 200 sheets of this stuff for about 50¢ in 1998. It actually accepts inks pretty well, so while it's the cheapest paper I've ever bought, and is se

    The Royalist Of Blues

    I have been looking for a certain blue (pilot Juice Aqua Blue)and decided to ask you all for some ideas. I am attempting to attach a copy of the color I found online, but this is my first attempt at posting here on FPN. I at one time had $80 worth of blue samples in my cart from gouletpens.com. The first blue I tried out turned out not to be as blue as the color swatch appeared to be, that was Noodler's Navajo Turquoise. Then I tried Chesterfield ink's Zircon ink from xfountainpens.com, it's a little darker and ever so slightly green leaning. While both colors are gorgeous they don't match wha
