Ink Review: Noodler's Ink - X-Feather. Grade: 67.50%. Paper Tested On: Norcom Composition, Staples 20lb, 85g Clairefontaine. Noodler's X-Feather (XF), aka Anti-Feather, at first glance may not be the flashiest ink out there. Some may overlook it as "just another black ink". However, XF's unique properties make it a very interesting ink for a variety of applications. At its core, XF is the same as Noodler's Black. XF is an Eternal/Bulletproof ink that is known for its permanence and being a 'go to' EDC ink. The biggest difference between XF and Black is XF's resistance to feathering. Is XF completely feather resistant? No, but it does a pretty good job on cheap paper making it a good choice for office use when you don't get to choose the paper that you use. When you write with XF you'll notice that it's a very smooth. XF just doesn't look like other inks. It's somehow thicker, more viscous. XF is not quite as thick as oil, but you'll be able to tell right away that it's different than other inks. XF is one of the blackest inks I've ever used. While some black inks come off as a dark brown or gray, XF remains a true starless black. The quick drying time and resistance to bleedthrough is also very impressive considering how saturated XF is. XF's resistance to rail-roading make it ideal for calligraphy. It's also great for drawing when you need deep blacks and lines that won't blow out. Overall, XF threatens to push Heart of Darkness out of the running for my favorite black ink. Just plan for some extra cleaning time when using XF.
