    Noodler's Ahab

    I spent days reading reviews, watching videos, etc before getting one... so here's my small contribution (nothing new but then I didn't mind a single time reading again and again the same reviews so...) I flushed the pen, brushed the feed (the usual water, 10% ammonia, a drop of detergent) just to be on the safe side. Nib: Very smooth, even when flexing hard. Very wet too: it made Diamine Syrah look really dark when other pens show it on the pinkish side, it made Parker Quink a real black. Flex: Easier and easier. The variation goes from hair thin (because of the speed, otherwi
  2. Since I do not own too many green inks, I cannot show very similar inks to compare. Instead I thought it would be useful to show where it lies in the spectrum between yellow/brown leaning greens like Krishna Ghat-green/ Sailor Tokiwa-Matsu and a teal leaning green like Diamine Aurora Borealis... Overall, I'd say its a pleasant color though not a very uncommon one - nothing screams out as unique or special about the colour or the ink's abilities but it is a nice pleasant green if you want only one green ink, and being Noodler's it is pretty inexpensive. Shame about the feathering though, t
  3. Hello everybody! It's my first time in this subforum, so please alert me if I'm doing something wrong. I have somehow accumulated over 20 different bottles of ink and 50 samples in the past two years. Love the variety, but some of these bottles don't get much use, and the ink in them just ages on my shelf. That's been bothering me a lot, since they're actually superb inks that just have had the bad luck of ending up in the hands of someone who doesn't appreciate them the way they deserve. So I'd like to send some of these out as big 5ml samples to anyone who's interested, in exchange for the

    Noodlers Red-Black

    Got three bottles of Red-Blac in the mail today . Haven't loaded a pen yet but I did try dipping with a completely clean pen and was very disapointed . It writes brown . No red , no black , no burgandy but brown and a rather average brown at that . Bad batch or par for the course for red-black ? This is my first time trying a noodlers ink and if this is any indication of what I can expect will probably be my last . Writing sample the seller posted was beautiful but this stuff looks nothing like what he posted . I am gonna try it in a clean pen with a fine nib and see if that is better if not I

    Air Corp Blue Black - Noodler's

    Noodler's is one of the companies that don't need introductions. Nathan's Tardiff work is unimaginable. The guy must be a vampire who doesn't sleep and feeds on developing ideas: new inks, new pens. Air Corp Blue / Black has great flow, doesn't bleed, and I haven't observed any feathering. I wonder though why it's called blue black? It's more of a green/black. The color variation is quite nice. Ink splash Drops of ink on kitchen towel Software Id Tomoe River, Kaweco Sport Classic, B

  7. Greetings. For the office and use on cheap photocopy paper I like the quick drying properties of Noodler's Bernanke inks. Color selection is limited to red, blue or black. Here is my go at mixing the three colors to get new options including purple (1 part red to 1 part blue) and my general go-to color: blue-black or midnight blue. Drying time seems to remain the same and not changed by mixing (but will leave it to others to test and confirm). I've read mixing inks made by different companies can be problematic. My assumption (right or wrong?) is mixing inks within the Noodler's Be
  8. Here's a brief comparison of 3 modern flex nibs: Conklin Omniflex, Noodler's Ahab, Fountain Pen Revolution Flex. Ease of flex Conklin Omniflex FPR flex Noodler's Line variation FPR flex - the nib writes finer "naturally" Noodler's Conklin Omniflex Railroading They all railroad at some point but it depends so much on how quick, how often and how hard you flex that this is really where I need to call in the YMMV. That being said, my Ahab is the most reliable and sturdy. Nib "feel" Conklin Omniflex feels the most fragile: the metal seems the thinnest, and I don't dare pushi

    Noodlers Bad Belted Kingfisher

    The "Bad" series are Nathan Tardif's response to a challenge he had running - remove his bulletproof black from paper without destroying it, and win a prize. It took an MIT student and a laser, but it was done. So the new inks, dubbed "bad" are now laser proof, as well as bulletproof (waterproof, bleach/ammonia proof, archival) It's also just a great, well behaved ink. The flow is excellent, the color is deeply saturated, there's very little shading, no sheen, very little feathering in a very wet F on the worst copy paper I have ever seen, almost no bleedthrough on said paper, and little t
  10. Over a realtively short period of time, I've purchased a number of Noodler's pens. Almost all are Ahabs with one Neponset in ebonite as are the Boston Safety Pens but more about them some other time. However, rapidly becoming clear favourites are the ebonite Konrad pens, named by Nathan 'Dixie #10'. I just love these pens (and I confess, the wonderful aroma of ebonite!) and this is just a brief review/comment. Many of you will be familiar with the Konrad et al, and the nib is the same as the Ahab. Further details are all over this site too. Currently available in one colour 'Red Rebellion
  11. I've been wanting to get into flex pens ever since I started using fountain pens a few years ago, but didn't want to get ahead of myself. So I started off with all the recommended beginner pens. I've been writing with all my pens for awhile and now I'm itching to get into flex but would like some recommendations. I've been watching a bunch of youtube videos and curious which flex pen most people here think has the best performance. I hear vintage flex is where its at, however I can't afford vintage flex so I have to stick to modern flex for now. Here are the modern flex pens I am aware
  12. Anyone else have issues with Noodler's being overfilled. Sure maybe it's on me not to spill, however when I'm opening an ink bottle like I'm doing neurosurgery I'd like to think it's not just me. I open the bottle gently and slowly and ink squirts all over the place. Why must they do this, id rather they not fill it so full. I guess in the future I'm going to just syringe a bunch out. Is this happening to other people? Also any tips on opening a bottle that's overfilled or should I just wear a hazmat suit and prepare for inkegeddon

    Squeteague - Noodler's

    Noodler's is one of the companies that don't need introductions. Nathan's Tardiff work is unimaginable. The guy must be a vampire who doesn't sleep and feeds on developing ideas: new inks, new pens. Squeteague has unusual color and good properties. I'm not sure whether I really like the color.

  14. Hi, all! I recently got a Charlie Pen from Noodler's when I bought a bottle of ink, and for a while, it wrote fine, but after a couple days, it began dripping ink as I wrote. I took the pen apart, cleaned it, filled it, and tried again but I can't get it to stop. I gave it a closer look and I could see ink pool up between the feed and the nib slowly, until a small droplet fell. Any advice? Could my nib and feed not be close enough to each other? I made sure to really jam them in there tightly. I really enjoy the pen and I'd love to keep using it, but it is just a hassle having to constan

    Noodler's Tokyo Gift

    Hey everyone! Hope this post finds you well. So I was browsing for ink, and came across Nathan's newest ink. However, I have reservations about his inks considering the disaster I had with Bernanke Blue, I have sworn off Noodler's entirely. Should I give this ink a chance? Picture of the ink swatch, courtesy from the Goulet's: https://www.gouletpens.com/collections/ink-samples/products/noodlers-tokyo-gift-ink-sample?variant=16902535249963 Thanks everyone!
  16. So, a lot of people have received the Noodler's free pen, either a platinum preppie or a "Charlie" and claim to hate them. I've read this in numerous reviews and posts, yet I have been enjoying the Charlie pen and other free noodler's pens. So I wanted to ask. What are your thoughts on the Noodler's free pen or pens you have and do you use them? I have 1 Charlie and 1 Preppie and enjoy using both. So please, let your thoughts be known on this. To make it easy for others viewing your own thoughts and reviews try the following format. Do you use it or not? Like it? love it? Hate it? Which one(

    Noodler's Myles Standish 2015 Le

    I believe this was a limited edition ink produced for the 2015 Commonwealth Pen Show in Boston. As always Nathan Tardif produces some inks with the most intriguing properties. I was fortunate to receive a sample of this ink just recently coincidental to some discussion of the actual color of the ink. Some original reviews indicated the ink was a "blue-black". Others who recently used the ink discovered the ink was not a blue-black, but a chalky blue, much like a traditional washable blue. Well the vial I received was of a chalky blue. Thank you inky friend! The ink is supposed to be wate

  20. Yesterday I had a science class where we were testing the acidity and alkalinity of different liquids. I saw that as the perfect opportunity to put the permanency of some "permanent" inks to the test as there were a few chemicals on hand. I had three inks on hand: Noodler's Bulletproof black, Rohrer und Klingner Salix and Parker Quinkflow ballpoint ink. The Noodler's didn't budge, while the iron-gall was obliterated by the bleach, and changed colour for the ammonia and hydrochloric acid, and the Parker ballpoint turned red with bleach and then faded some more, and hydrochloric acid life a blue

  22. I placed an order for a bottle of Noodler's Blue Ghost back in March, when I saw it was offered at a good price. However, the retailer was unable to fulfil the order right away (and that's understandable), and when their order of inks came in from the US a month later but there was no Blue Ghost in sight, that was the last update I got, even though I told the staff there I still wanted a bottle of ink and wasn't letting them off the hook so readily. Then, I saw this other invisible ink in 18ml bottles on eBay, with no brand name or detail -- including whether it's safe for fountain pen use,
  23. Forgive me if I'm repeating a topic here, but I couldn't find anything with the search function. I have a Noodler's Ebonite Konrad that I really enjoy. Up until now I've been using it with the flex nib, but today I decided to try swapping it out with a Goulet #6 Medium. The swap and heat setting went well, but the pen is now an absolute gusher. It writes more like a broad and puts down enough ink to puddle. I inked up with Asa Gao, which I know is a wetter ink, but even so it seemed extreme. Is this a problem with the nib, or the feed? Is it because the feed was intended for use with a f
  24. Hello all! I am new here, this is my first post. I know there's an "Introductions" section, but I have an ink-related question so I figured I'd keep things neat and contained and just start here, if that's all right with you. (I'll move to Intros if the mods prefer ofc) A short introduction: I'm 22 y/o, from the Netherlands, just finished my bachelor's and currently doing an internship. As such, I have very little money to spend - hence my username! I've always loved fountain pens but for a long time the fountain pen enthusiast world seemed too daunting. Turns out there's nothing daunting

    Zebra G'ing A Neponset

    I spotted a post elsewhere that had a picture of a Neponset with a Zebra G nib, so I immediately got to work. Sadly, the Neponset ebonite feed curves downwards quite significantly. I recall this issue with the other one I have that I put a Goulet nib into. To do that I had to remove the Neponset feed and replace it with an Ahab feed and now it works perfectly and beautifully wet. The problem is I cannot for the life of me work out how the person managed to get the Zebra G nib to match the Neponset feed - mine are so far apart that you could drive a bus through the gap. They claim to have heat
