    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 hard while writing. It's a smooth writing ink but I wouldn't describe it as an overly wet ink with a drying time between 5-7 seconds on composition paper. This ink is a bulletproof ink and is very hard to clean or get off your hands. The first time I used it was in a dip pen and I successfully stained my thumb and middle finger for 3 days. Thankfully no one could see it. BG doesn't shade. BG doesn't bleed. And it doesn't like to show up on cheap composition paper. I'd recommend a nice cream colored paper if you're using BG. The picture I took is on a little Moleskine grid notebook. And lastly, BG doesn't like to have its picture taken. I only have an iPhone 5 and I couldn't get it to say "cheese". The best picture i got was from taking a video on my phone then snapping a screenshot. Granted, I have a cheap LED black light flashlight; your results may vary. I haven't figured out what I'm going to do with BG yet. I know I can write a secret message to someone (which I look forward to). I've also heard (from Brian Goulet's videos) that there are stories of wives writing their husbands in the military in BG so all the private romantic musings *stay* private. And I've heard you can add BG to other inks and they can take on its luminescent properties. I haven't tried that yet, but I really really want to. If you want to try an ink that is fascinating and fun to play/experiment with, you should check this ink out.
  2. 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 article on inks be critical of it and say it could damage pens or at least dirty them a lot to the point of being very difficult to clean properly. All these contradictory stories and opinions have left me a bit lost as to weather or not Noodler's Black is an ink I want to use. So what is the definitive answer on Noodler's Black, if there's even one? PS: Maybe this has already been discussed thoroughly in an other thread I have missed, if so let me know, but all the threads I have read so far have just left me as divided as before on the issue.
  3. 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 extremely large ink droplet.
  4. 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! And if so how? Many thanks for your help, Badger
  5. 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 my pens to be on the side of "pristine"
  7. 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 is going to be a great introduction to the world of flex pens. Does anyone own this pen? Is it good? Please share your experience here. I am getting it from the seller and hoping to get a discount on the price and great review by the guy, btw. Kudos to him

    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?
  10. 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.
  11. 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 best to correct it! Thanks, Fletch
  12. [video=youtube;MvlZJ0iUGuQ] Intro: I like to use Fountain pens at work, and there isn’t always good paper to use, and I really do not like the look of feathering especially if I write something and need to give it to a college. So I was very interested to see if Noodler’s X-feather could be the answer to my woes. I ordered a sample from the Goulet Pen company and set to testing. Testing parameters: I used my Lamy 2000 with a fine nib because I think it was a good simulation with putting just enough ink on the page to test how the ink performs on the page(s). I also needed a “control” so I used the ink that I have been using for a few years now; Lamy Black. I then used three different papers to see how both inks performed on each. The results: There was virtually no difference between the inks both in darkness and in feathering performance. As it would seem Noodler’s X-Feather has no unique properties that prevent it from feathering. I will say that it is a nice performing ink, and the better water-resistant characteristics is the Lamy Black does not have. So in conclusion, if you are looking for an ink to stop feathering then we still need to wait for something, however if you want to have a good performing black ink then both Lamy Black and Noodler’s X-Feather are good choices.
  13. I was just curious if anyone else has tried putting on of the $2 Noodler's non-flex nibs into a Jinhao pen? Any success? The only other record I found was also a failure in this Ink Nouveau comment, http://www.inknouveau.com/2014/01/noodlers-non-flex-6-nibs.html#comment-1212641063. I tried on one of my X750s without success.it was a little harder to get to start into the section. Even once I go it in it was significantly off the feed. I did not do anything further to try to force or coerce it because I did not want to damage the nib. Comparing it with the Jinhao afterwards, the metal is noticeably thicker on the Noodler's which is very likely why it did not want to slide in easily.
  14. Hi guys, I have a fairly new Safari with fine nib and Noodler's Hear of Darkness ink that keeps drying out or clogging up and skipping. Not sure if the fault is in the pen, ink or combination of two. Any advise would be appreciated. p.s. I have other various other pens filled with noodlers ink and they seem fine.

    Noodler's Black Pen Safety

    After weeks of searching for a bottle of Noodler's Black Ink, my local brick and mortar finally received a shipment and reserved a 3oz bottle for me. I was told that the while the ink performs very very well on cheap paper and has amazing water resistance, I was advised by the worker that I shouldn't use this ink in demonstrator pens like the TWSBI Diamond 580/Vac 700 or any clear pen at that, because "the ink will stain the inside of the pen." Is that statement true? If that's the case (or not the case), will this Noodler's Black be safe to use in converters such as the LAMY converter or Platinum converter?

    Noodler's Blue Ghost

    Hello y'all! I've been getting more and more into inks, and I've run across several that intrigue me, and several that I don't think I'll ever touch. One ink that piques my interest immensely is Noodler's Blue Ghost. Has anyone tried Noodler's Blue Ghost? What have been your experiences with it? -Charlie
  17. A bit of backstory... I've had a complicated history with blue inks. Ever since elementary school I've disliked blue ballpoint pens. Something about them is just... "blah". When I got into fountain pens last year, I carried this prejudice along with me, focusing on purples, greens, browns, grays - pretty much anything other than boring old blue or black. Soon enough, though, I got swept up by sheer variety of blue inks and the enthusiasm people have for them. I started from the edges, with vivid sky blues like Iroshizuku Kon-Peki and subtle blue-blacks like R&K Salix, gradually expanding my comfort zone inward toward the standard, medium blues. While I often find "the one" ink of a certain color (however short-lived the title proves to be), I've never found "the one" blue ink. I've tried many nice blues - Namiki Blue, Waterman Blue, Ottoman Azure, Bad Blue Heron, Eclat de Saphir, Diamine Sapphire, etc, etc - they were all either too light, too dark, too flat, too purple, too green, or just too not-quite-well-behaved-enough to really have the "it" factor I needed to declare them "the one" bottle-worthy standard blue. Until now. Ink: Noodler's Liberty's Elysium Pen: Pilot Vanishing Point, F Paper: Staples Sugarcane notebook http://i513.photobucket.com/albums/t331/InkandPaper88/Libertys%20Elysium/Review_zps7f4a26da.jpg Liberty's Elysium is a true blue, leaning neither towards purple, as many standard blues tend to do, nor towards turquoise, as do many sky blues. In keeping with the Noodler's tradition of historically themed inks, this ink is dedicated to those who fought and died for the sake of religious and political freedom in colonial America. http://i513.photobucket.com/albums/t331/InkandPaper88/Libertys%20Elysium/Color_zpsead45cde.jpg This ink is surprisingly close to Sailor Jentle Sky High, but it is a richer, more neutral blue. It also seems to write a bit broader than other inks - a seemingly common characteristic of Noodler's inks. Overall performance is good. It will feather and show through on the worst papers but no more than any other ink that isn't an iron gall or Noodler's Black. http://i513.photobucket.com/albums/t331/InkandPaper88/Libertys%20Elysium/Compare_zpse622cfff.jpg You can see the color and shading here, but there is a depth and vibrancy to the ink that goes beyond what I can be captured in a picture. I think that is what people are seeing when they compare it to Kon-Peki, which also has that quality, despite being much more turquoise than Liberty's Elysium. http://i513.photobucket.com/albums/t331/InkandPaper88/Libertys%20Elysium/Detail_zps5771827b.jpg As it was quickly (and loudly) discovered following this ink's release, Liberty's Elysium is not a true "Bulletproof" ink. That said, it is *highly* water resistant, and, given the quirky tendencies of other Bulletproof inks, I think this is actually just fine. http://i513.photobucket.com/albums/t331/InkandPaper88/Libertys%20Elysium/Waterproof_zps56aa92eb.jpg Add to all of the above that it is one of the cheapest inks by volume that you can get in the US, and Liberty's Elysium is a no-brainer for me as my "the one" workhorse blue. Of course, being "the one" is a far thing from being "the one and only". In particular, Eclat de Saphir gives a nice change of pace, and Kon-Peki is a delightful indulgence. Sky High is also a nice compromise between indulgence and practicality. And there are times when the sheer brazen dullness of Namiki Blue or Waterman Blue is charming in its own way... I guess what I'm really saying is that if feels good to pretend that I've settled something.
  18. I'd like to do some comparative reviews of a few dark turquoise/teal/green-black inks and will start with this super-long name ink: Organics Studio's "Masters of Writing" series Volume No. 14 Henry David Thoreau "Walden Pond Blue" (Handmade in Maryland) http://i.imgur.com/uZHMquL.jpg?1 The ink comes in a 55ml plastic bottle, labeled simply "Walden" and appears to be highly saturated. I've seen sample reviews of this ink showing a high amount of sheen, and I can confirm it is indeed the case, though of course the sheen level depends on how much ink your pen puts down. For high flow feed/wet nibs, and especially for dip pens, this ink is an absolute sheen monster! The sheen is of very metallic burgundy/magenta color, quite nice. Shading is low to moderate, depending on pen and paper. Lubrication is at least moderate. For my review I chose my favorite paper to show off inks: Fabriano's EcoQua dot notebook made with Bioprima 85g/m2 paper. It is a bit toothier than Rhodia or the glass-smooth Clairefontaine, and is a nice pale ivory color. It also shows off color and ink saturation well, compared to my Clairefontaine paper, which makes even saturated inks look more pale and anemic (you can probably tell I'm not a fan of that paper). Unlike some of my more watery inks, I was able to use this ink with a dip pen without having to re-dip after every few letters. It seems to be more viscous/coating in that regard. This could be a great ink for ornate writing with a dip pen, if lots of metallic sheen is desired. Here is a [slightly overexposed] scan, though also see photographs that follow, the paper is actually a cream color, not white: http://i.imgur.com/Of2QhWf.jpg?1 The water test was done with a single droplet of water from the tap (more toward the left) followed by more droplets on the right side of the grid, after the ink had about 3 minutes to dry. I think it's fairly water-resistant in that the color washes away, but the lines are still visible. Because it is so saturated, it takes a while to dry, depending on your pen. I used a Lamy Safari with 1.1 italic nib for dry time testing. In the scan above, I also wrote with Noodler's Aircorp Blue Black, which is VERY close in color to this ink but completely lacks sheen. Other differences between the two are: - Noodler's ACBB is a tad less vivid teal and a shade more subdued. It also seems to be just a bit darker. I would say that ACBB is the closest match for the Lamy Safari "Petrol" pen barrel in person, followed by this Walden Pond Blue. I have also made some test writing samples for color fastness comparisons, which I will add to this review at a later date. Eventually, beside Noodler's Aircorp Blue Black, I plan to compare this ink to Sailor's Jentle Yama-Dori, Robert Oster "Tranquility", Robert Oster "Fire & Ice", Robert Oster "Aqua", and J. Herbin's "Emerald of Chivor", samples of which are on the way to me as I type this review. Photographs that show the colors and the sheen (very difficult to show correctly, but it's a greenish teal, not quite as intense as on the photos, but more intense than ACBB): http://i.imgur.com/c09I9fJ.jpg http://i.imgur.com/3Qs2kJD.jpg?1 http://i.imgur.com/TUd99uM.jpg?1 And here's the crazy levels of metallic sheen with a dip pen, basically the teal base gets completely covered up with the metallic burgundy (on Clairefontaine french ruled Triompe notebook paper): http://i.imgur.com/0fSWdJq.jpg http://i.imgur.com/R2OjUP1.jpg http://i.imgur.com/f9QNI63.jpg
  19. I'll just paste my 'about me' from my profile. I'll not get on the soap box again, thanks to you all already -BIn the second half of my life, I'm using my time while retired/disabled after 23+ years as an Officer of Marines; CWO4 (Marine Gunner) and former Master Sergeant (prior to my Officer lobotomy) I stay busy when not swamped with stuff or just feeling down right horrible as a book reviewer, editor, and still continue analytical work for various people/businesses and occasionally still do consulting work for the Marine Corps and DoD ....... Advocating for Liberty and Veterans who suffer with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Severe Memory Impairment, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumas, and those with Crohn's Disease and Seizure Disorder. Of course too I may muster the courage to begin my Scale Models again but in addition to it all fight pain,tremor, and atrophy caused by neuropathy so bad that it maybe something best to just hang up and sell off. I've lost nearly every enjoyable skill and struggle with the idea of "doing it at all if I can't do so to the ability I once had". My 1965 Galaxie 500 LTD and Harley are gone as a result of the desires and memory issues so that and losing the opportunity of a second careeer sucks big time. I'm most busy with doctors appointments and maintaining my 118 year old house, my shop, ranting, retirement, and sometimes more... I spend most of the day in my library/study and may sometimes blog aside from my other stuff. My blog was begun right before my health, career, and entire life's direction was wildly changed, so though the page is 3+ years old, it is bare boned. My wonderfaul wife and partner of 21 years and I have 3 daughters (23, 20, & 10) and my service/seizure dog 'Reagan' (a Transylvania Hound).I have always insisted upon myself, my Marines, and my girls that their handwriting and deliverables that leave their desks are an example and often a first impression of their own character of professionalism and disciple. If it's your notes or your journal, that's one thinks; but if it is going to be seen by someone else it must be your best. I don't have extremely expensive pens, but what I have are of good quality and they are used extensively with my very rarely using a ball point pen or marker. Of course math/hand-analysis and editing markup is still often done with pencil, but everything aside is ink 'properly. I had to learn to read and write all over again after my brain injury, but I continue my journal that is now beginning it's 27th year and in addition I still write my wife of 21 years a love letter each day. I look forward to learning from each of you and pray I will be of assistance to many as well. I have much experience with different mediums aside from fountain pens to include, dip, technical pens, pastels, pencil, and alcohol pens with a solid background in what works and what doesn't with all brands, mediums, and surfaces while making sure the combination matches the intended purpose.Semper Fidelis, CWO4 Shannon Beaman USMC'Smooth is Fast, Fast is Smooth' Edited for errors only, content not altered. -B
  20. Before exploring my first ink review, I’d like to explain my review method. After reading several reviews I’ve decided to try to pick some features here and there, and put them together in a sort of “hybrid review”. I use three kinds of paper: Fabriano copy paper : Nothing fancy, just standard inkjet printer 80 gr/mq paper. Behaver poorly in any occasion, a fantastic stress test for detemine if an ink is suitable for daily use purposes. Favini “Schizza & Strappa” paper : It’s a drawing purpose paper, at the touch feels like Rhodia paper, but it’s a lot lighter, just 55gr/mq. Behaves much better than normal copy paper and on this support it’s more likely to bring out some shading and, if you’re lucky, some sheen. It has also a really good cost/value rate. Tracing Paper : Everyone knows what tracing paper is and how it behaves, quite trasparente, almost waterproof, takes ages in drying times, but really brings out everything from the ink you’re using. This support is the last chance for an ink to show shading or sheen. Obviously is a very unfriendly paper for left handed pen user like me. I’m always using the same Lamy Safari pen with 4 different nibs : Fine, Medium, Broad , 1.9 Stub. In the future I’m looking to improve my reviews with implementing a fifth tipe of nib: a Broad nib grinded to Architect. I feel also that Is interesting examine how an ink behaves on towels and on a cromatography test, just because I’m a really curious guy and I really like trying to understand how an ink is made and wich dyes and tones composes the final colour. So let’s begin my first review! --------------------------------------------------------------------------- The ink I’m going to examine is one of my usual choice on work : Noodler’s Air-Corp Blue Black. As you may notice from the picture below, even if it’s called blue black, it feels more like a greeny dark teal ink. It’s a really wet ink, with a fantastic flow (wich is thing I really enjoy), without losing performance on the feathering and bleeding side even on cheap paper. On the other side I’ve to say that this ink on cheap paper appears a little flat, with almost no shading. Using it on more “fountain pen friendly” paper this ink really gives is best with a wider range of shades. It does not show any sheen on any kind of paper. As you may notice from the cromatography and from the water drop test, this ink is absolutely waterproof, and leaves a nice dark grey line if soaked in the water. COPY PAPER http://s11.postimg.org/rqmznmky7/COPY_PAPER.jpg SCHIZZA & STRAPPA PAPER http://s11.postimg.org/asnz1sbkf/SCHIZZA_E_STRAPPA.jpg TRACING PAPERhttp://s11.postimg.org/43hflrq8f/TRACING_PAPER.jpg ABSORBENT PAPER & CROMATOGRAPHYhttp://s11.postimg.org/v7p1qlk0f/BLOTCH.jpghttp://s11.postimg.org/g2sxt2vtb/CROMATOGRAPHY.jpg We’re usually defining low cost – high performance – durable fountain pens as workhorses, in my opinion there are some inks that can have the same definition in terms of work appropriate colour – waterproofness – indelible over time – cleaning easiness – cost per bottle. This ink for me belongs this category and I find a plus not being the usual standard royal blue or blue black, but a particular tone absolutely usable, even on official or business documents, without looking odd, but just interesting. P.S. As this is my first review, please feel free to give me any advice to improve the others coming next! Thanks!
  21. I have recently acquired a Karas Kustoms Ink with a fine palladium nib. The pen writes great and the fine line is excellent, but it is very very wet. Since I bought this pen to use as a versatile everyday pen in the physics lab, school, for journaling and every other writing need you can imagine, I don't really have much control over the paper I will be using it on. Therefore I need to find a black ink that is both dry and adaptable. I have already tried Pelikan Brilliant Black in it, but it still bleeds through on a lot of different kinds of paper. NOW THE MOST IMPORTANT PART AND THE HEART OF THE QUESTION: I have considered using Noodler's Bulletproof Black but it seems very polarising. Lots of people praise it as their most used ink but I have also seen many say that it leaves a residue that is very hard to wash out and over the long run, ends up clogging their pens. So I want to know once and for all is Noodler's Bulletproof Black safe enough that if I use it in my pen and practice good pen hygiene (say wash it every three fill or every three weeks or something like that) will it leave any residue? If so, are there other alternatives that still fit the bill but are safer? Thank you all in advance
