  1. [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
  2. 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
  3. 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

    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
  6. 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 expandi
  7. 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
  8. 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 .......

  9. 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 mu
  10. 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 HEAR

    Noodler's Ahab Flex Pen

    I received my Noodler's Flex pen in Apache Tortoise the other day from Pure Pens. Not had a flex pen before and wasn't sure quite what to expect. I'd read here and elsewhere varying opinions of these, some good, some bad - smelly! Though mine actually smells quite pleasant, a rather sweet, heady smell. And mine came with a spare non-flex nib as well. My other concern was the setup as after buying first then reading about them in more depth, they seemed to be problematic to get going with and I was concerned I had wasted my money. I did have a few issues as I have noted in my review but gener

    Zhivago - 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. Noodler’s Zhivago is one of most interesting inks I've used recentlty. It's hard to say what color it really is. Zhivago is a green-black-grey ink, heavier on the black than on the green in most nibs and on most papers. On the other hand green is still visible and while some people may argue I think of it as dark green-black and not black with green accents. Whatever. Rhe thing is the ink is exce
  13. Gday everyone, Long time lurker first time poster I'd like to jump straight into it and go ahead and say that I've been having problems (or should i say A problem) with my Noodlers Bulletproof black. It's an absolutely wonderful ink in pretty much every way, except one. My 'Online German: Event' Pen doesn't seem to agree with the Noodlers ink. (I have a Noodlers Flex pen inked up in Noodlers black which works perfectly fine) I've inked it up through a converter and for about, I would say the first page and a half of writing, it writes fine. It flows well with no skipping etc.

    Changes In 54Th Mass?

    ​​So, I ordered a sample of Noodler's 54th Massachusetts from Goulet Pens and loved it. Great color, well-behaved, quick drying, and waterproof to boot. When I bought the bottle, though, it has proven to be extremely wet and will spread and feather on almost every paper, including the Mnemosyne and Clairefontaine papers I use the most. I go through twice the ink that I used to with this. The distributor says that the latter performance is normal, and they found nothing wrong with the ink that they replaced for me. ​1. Has anyone noticed a change to this effect in this ink lately? 2. Wh
  15. Hello everyone, my wife just mentioned she likes Noodler's Bad Belted Kingfisher especially because of the green in it. I like it especially because there is no green anywhere in my view. How do you think about it? Do you see any green in Bad Belted Kingfisher? Best, Toni
  16. Nathan Tardif sent out a news release about his latest ink named "House Divided". The description sounds like a semi-permanent purplish ink with a blue component that washes away leaving behind a permanent red line. His announcement indicates it will be available for the DC Pen Show. I plan to attend Saturday and will be looking for a bottle.

    Noodler's Gi Green (V-Mail Series)

    Got a sample of this along with all the other V-mails, because I'm really interested in the vintagey looks Nathan has made. Mandalay Maroon is a great color, and dark matter is my favorite black. This is a very flat green, quite similar to polar green (but without the heavy bulletproof/freezeproof properties, though it is better behaved and doesn't stink like the polars) very neutral as well. Saturated and pleasing to the eye, it's a very "standard" color. I think, as far as greens go, I prefer waterman Harmonious green, Diamine Sherwood green, etc. This one has no special sheen, no particular
  18. Two months ago I received my first bottle of Noodler’s Black “bulletproof” ink. The no nonsense bottle was filled to the brim, but from there my experiences with this ink were not trouble-free. I used the ink in two different pens I both deep cleaned before filling them up with Noodler’s Black: A traditional Indian jumbo sized ebonite eye dropper pen fitted with an Ambitious 40 mm long № 12 nib. A pen fitted with a German JoWo EF #6 nib unit and a Schmidt K5 converter. I found my bottle of Noodler’s Black to contain a black writing fluid that has a surface tension that causes it to stub
  19. Noodler’s Ink is introducing a new 308 refillable ink cartridge. It fits both the Noodler’s Ahab and Neponset (with the white section insert). The cartridges will be available in a 10 pack, MSRP $10.00. Nathan has a video with the details and it includes a brief history of the ink cartridge. Who knew its roots traced back to the American Civil War, some 150 years ago?
  20. Hey everyone, I'm considering a Konrad, after using a Pilot metropolitan for about 2 years. My questions are, how much flex does it actually have and it is it suitable for someone who's a southpaw? Thanks, Rosendust
  21. Hi! I am relatively new to fountain pens and would like to try out a flex pen, without a huge investment. Initially, I added an Ahab to my wishlist, but the reviews make it seem a bit too finicky for my comfort level. Now, I'm considering buying a replacement Noodler's flex nib and putting it into some other pen. (the nibs come in #2 or #6). Are there any pens at $15 or less which would be good to frankenpen into a flex? Thanks!
  22. Has anyone had issues with Noodler's Black Swan in Australian Roses not shading? I recently purchased my first bottle and loaded it into a pen with Goulet stub nib that worked wonderfully with other shading inks, but Black Swan looks dull and flat with very little shading. It also feels dry coming out of the pen. Yes, I fully cleaned it before filling it. And yes I've tried it on quality paper, including Rhodia, Mnemosyne, Fabriano, Midori and HP Premium Laser - no distinct shading on any of them. I also dip tested with a bold nib and had the same result. Any thoughts?
  23. I really like music nibs. I have the Platinum 3776 Music Nib, the Pilot 742 Music Nib, Franklin Christoph Music Nib, the Ackerman Pump Pen Music Nib and the Noodler's Neponset Music Nib. But the thing I find odd about the Noodler's is that it isn't a stub like the rest. Sure, it has 3 tines, but it has no stub whatsoever. So my question is: has anyone tried to grind one of these into a stub? What were the results? Was it still flexible? I know that it's possible to by Nib Creeper and Ahab replacement nibs. But, to my knowledge, it is not yet possible to buy just the Neponset nib witho
  24. Hi all, I do a lot of creative writing/journaling and used to use those multi-colored gel pen packs until I switched to fountain pens (My EDC is a Safari EF). I am looking for suggestions of ink with the following properties: Not blue nor black. Easy on the eyes for long writing seasons. Behaves well with little feathering or bleed-through on mid-grade paper (i,e, better than a composition book, not as good as Rhodia). Inexpensive (Noodler's price range).One of the main draws to fountain pens is the ability to use interesting colors and switch them whenever I like, but the platinum violet

    Pilot Volex Question

    I've had a Volex for about a year, and it writes well. I also have a bottle of Noodler's Bad Blue Heron that I would like to use in this pen. I'm hesitant because it's a tough ink to get out. I've been using it for several years and learned how to clean it out of normal pens. It's the pens with unusual feed designs that can be a real problem (like that fiber wick feed in the Pilot Petit1). I've seen teardown instructions for a Pilot Elite. The Elite has a little sponge looking thing in it. That little sponge is why I don't run BBH through my Elite. It doesn't seem like it would ever all com
