    Kung-Te Cheng - Noodler's

    I like this ink. I got the sample and used it in two pens: Pilot 78G with broad nib and Kinhao x750 with fine/medium nib. I haven't observed any problems with the flow, staining or ink disbehaviour. I wouldn't however used with my "better" *read - expensive) fountain pens. Just in case. Anyway I find the idea of recreating old ink formulas thrilling.

    Ink Suggestions?

    Hey all, so I've been using Pilot Iroshizuku (Yama-Budo & Beauty Berry are my top favorites) but I'm wanting ink suggestions, like for brands like Noodler's(they don't have to be this brand, you can mention any brands, of course)! (Things to note: I'm a lefty and I didn't like the feathering of BB.) Any help is welcomed, Rosendust
  3. I returned from the 2018 Baltimore Pen Show with a new pen and some new inks. The new pen was a Franklin Christoph Model 02 with a steel fine cursive italic nib by Mike Masuyama. Franklin Christoph always sets up your pen at the show and lets you pick an ink to load in it for the first time. I chose the FC Blue 72 (of the Pantone color number) because their web site listed it as water resistant and they sell cartridges in bottles of 40 for a very good price. I figured I would try it out to see if I could find an ink cartridge with a water resistant ink I could use for daily work at the office.

    Noodler's House Divided

    Just got back from the DC Pen Show. Several retailers had the latest Nooder's ink, House Divided. From his description, I was expecting a reddish blue ink that when washed leaves behind a permanent red line. I was able to sample the bottle at Luxury Brand's table. The ink is not what I was expecting. It is actually a dusty rose/burgundy color with barely a hint of blue in it. I came home and immediately loaded it into a Pilot Prera medium pen and did some testing. I also did a spill test during which I wrote on a piece of 28# paper, let it dry, and then poured tap water over it. After it dried

    Forever Drying Inks - Question

    Hello fellow ink users, I have a question about one issue I've been wondering about for a while now. I have noticed that some inks - if pen is not used for some time - when applied to paper, tend to stay wet for 5-10 minutes if not more. In my mind - this is almost forever. This happens mostly with my vintage pens, and by "not used for some time" it can be anywhere between 3-5 days up to 10 or more days. Pens are stored properly. I've noticed this with modern pens as well. Most of the issues I have with Noodler's, J. Herbin... and Diamine too. When I use inks from big brand names (Pel
  6. When I tried a forum search this didn't seem to be documented already so I thought I should probably put this up. I bought a bottle of the limited edition Noodler's Proctor's Ledge at the 2016 Commonwealth Pen Show. It's the one that's supposed to be all spooky under UV light. Well, it is (or was) a kind of ugly brown in my opinion, and it tarnished a gold nib (mostly came off with metal polish) and stained my glass dropper (no force on earth can remedy this) so I put it away. Certainly it was never left in the sun or exposed to heat or anything like that. Last night I happened to swatch it
  7. Hey, I really hate to open another topic on Baystate Blue. But I really don't know how to find ALL the BSB threads that are available, and check whether this has already been comented on (For what is worth, I have searched as best I could via Google, here and elsewhere, but I couldn't find an appropriate thread about this). So then, I thought I might ask everybody a question: Does YOUR (sample of) Baystate Blue turn purple on plain, white, copy paper (80-90 gsm), and predominantly on such paper? I don't mean a hint or a tinge of purple - rather bright, saturated, vibrant ... purple.
  8. Of the three pens I have at moment. A montblanc 144, Jinhao 159 and a Noodlers Ahab since I'm just starting out basically was cycling through the pens to see which one style, nib etc I prefer Like I find the Montblanc sort of too small (thin ) for me and the 159 just a bit too large. I had all filled with ink and when I went to use the Ahab today I found the ink had dried up. I was sort of surprised at that. I managed to wash pen out and will re ink it when I get home. I'm thinking it may be a good idea to store pens until ready to use possible filled with dist
  9. I have to downsize my office area so I have some ink that needs to go to a good home. This PIF is for the US only, I will pay the postage. I would prefer it go to someone who is new to pens, but the first person to send a PM with their address can have the lot. I have following to give away: A full bottle of Noodler’s Bad Blue Heron, a box of 12 Pilot Black cartridges, a box of 7 Mont Blanc Permanent Blue cartridges. a sample of Noodler's Luxury Blue, a sample of Noodler's Upper Ganges Blue, a sample of Noodler's Liberty's Elysium, a sample of Noodler's Blue Black and

    Noodler's Blue Ghost

    *Originally posted on my Instagram. Ink Review: Noodler's Ink, Blue Ghost. Grade: 68.75%. Blue Ghost(BG) is probably the most interesting ink that I own. It was given to me as a gift because, as a practical person, I couldn't find a reason to buy this ink unless I was playing 'Cold War spy' with my friends. I wish I had gotten it sooner. Yes, it's sort of a novelty, but what a novelty! In the bottle, the ink is a pale yellow that reminds me of raw egg yolk. After it dries, it's completely invisible. The only way I can see it on the page is if I scratch the paper by pressing down too ha
  11. Hi everyone, I am interested on making the point on Noodler's Black once and for all (if that is even possible) because I have read and heard lots of contradictory things about that ink which has made me hesitant to buy it and use it in my more expensive pens and I am sure I am not alone in that boat. I have no bias against that ink, I know that some people here with lots of fountain pen experience and knowledge swear by it, and it indeed seems to have a lot of excellent properties that most people want, but I have also read other knowledgeable pen people such as Richard Binder in his art
  12. I think it was earlier this year that FPN received new batches of their custom inks from Noodler's. I ordered the colors that I thought I'd like and Van Gogh Starry Night Blue was one of them. It did not disappoint. As usual I've tested it with Mohawk via Linen and Hammermill 28 lb inkjet papers, as well as Tomoe River. Quite shady on Tomoe River. I didn't see any sheen, but it could be my pen, ink, paper combo isn't conducive to that. In the waterfastness test, there was very little bleeding. It's not bulletproof, but it has very good resistance. Seems like we got an e
  13. Dear all, Boring backstory... I've got a Parker 51 that works wonderfully. It's an heirloom pen and as it writes so wonderfully I no longer take it out and about. As such I'm in the market for a new 51 copy, a pen that I won't be fussed about loosing, breaking, nib down dropping, loaning... you get the picture Question: Can you wonderful folks list any 51 copies, and your experiences with them for me? If so I'd really appreciate it! I've heard the Hero 100 is a good imitation, one comment on fpn even suggested that the Hero 100 is a "slight improvement" on the 51. Could this be so!
  14. Quick fun. Just got my falcon with Office Depot 30% online deal. Took a few weeks but finally here. I need to adjust and widen Baoer feed but not too bad on test run. I have to adjust to the Falcon but its growing on me quickly. I was impressed with the noodlers nib. Just what I expected from semi-flex. Now I have to tinker with that flow. I expect the falcon will loosen up a bit after regular writing. Noodlers had no problem using moderate pressure.

    Twsbi Eco And Noodler's Kung Te-Cheng

    Hi! I received my first TWSBI—an Eco—and I was wondering how resistant it is to staining from "strong" inks. In particular, I am looking at filling it with Noodler's Kung Te-Cheng, which is a great ink but also something that people have described as "apocalypse-proof". I have lent it successfully to people when their ballpoints (ew) would not on the signature space on credit cards so it is that kind of special and stubborn. I don't have high hopes for its compatibility but if it has been tried and tested it would a welcome surprise. nb. I get the whole battle scars argument but I prefer
  16. The two minute guys have posted a review video of yet another Indian flex pen, once again made by Kanwrite, which is called the Kanwrite Standard Flex Fountain Pen. First things first, here is the review: Now, like last time, i don't know if this pen is sold by Noodlers (under its brand name) in USA or not. But it looks like a great flex pen.. I have done some research on the pen - it was manufactured by Kanwrite in 2009 and is the companies most compact fountain pen. And its very cheap for a flex pen, and the guy claims it is as good as Noodlers Ahab. Even if it is not, i think it

    Qin Shi Huang Red Or Pink?

    Trying to decide if I should contact the seller about this. My Qin Shi Huang is more like the light purple Herbin Larmes de Cassis than it is a terra cotta, intense pink, or red (as it seems advertised). There's about 3mm of stuff that settles out within a day that is more of a brick red, sorta cloggy, and not at all UV fluorescent. I know this is a quirky ink and don't want to complain if I didn't get a bad bottle. I got it out of interest, not for utility, so if this is typical then I'll keep it.

    New Noodler's Pen

    I saw a video....a long video as is Nathan's want....about a new ink but in it there was mention of a new safety pen from Noodler's and there were also quite a few nice looking ebonite dip pens on display. The video was so long and rambling I must confess I didn't sit through it all so may have missed vital details. I headed off to Noodler's own website but there was no info about it there and nothing on any other pen store sites. Anyone have any more info?
  19. Hello, fellow fountain pen enthusiasts! It so happened, that I found myself in possession of old REFORM Calligraph pen with B-nib. And I asked myself, why not to try to switch its nib to something more flexible? So, obviously, I looked in the direction of Noodler’s. The problem is, I can’t find out, whether any of two (#2 and #6) Noodler’s flex nibs is suitable for REFORM pen. Thus if anybody has any experience in changing nibs in these German pens, please share your knowledge with me. Thank you.
  20. Hi all, I picked up a bottle of Noodlers Bernanke Blue at the London pen show recently and I'm afraid, have really not got along with it. So I am left with a nearly completely full bottle of ink that is likely to sit in my drawer for years. Does anyone have any advice regarding what to do with this Ink? I feel like just throwing it away is a crime! Would anyone be wanting to do an ink swap or simply wants to take this off my hands for free? (surely someone must like this ink?) This is my first post on the forum, so let me know if I've done something horrifically wrong, and I will do my
