    Noodler's Blue Nose Bear

    I really had to control myself not to buy a whole bottle of ink without trying a sample, despite the negative reviews. I’m sorry I didn’t. Noodler’s Blue Nose Bear was named after the famed Nova Scotian schooner, Bluenose and in homage to the Winnipeg bear, who inspired Winnie the Pooh. As a lefty underwriter, most important to me are water resistance and acceptable dry times and smooth writing. Shading is a plus. Most reviews have stated this ink feathers on most papers, bleeds through etc. I find that this while true not always valid. For example, flexed Ahab on Rhodia is awful, however endearing on Clairefontaine. It also ghosts and it could bleed have minimal bleed through with a very wet nib. With a wet Medium Jinhao it has lovely feathering. Yes, you read correctly the feathering is actually quite nice. To my surprise with a fude nib, it did not feather and shaded delightfully…… It is partially waterproof, and a greyish line would remain after extended water submersion. The ink is also fluorescent It seems that I don’t like “perfect” inks but inks that have imperfect perfection…. Rhodia dot pad - Front - In retrospect I was hasty in my handwritten review, condemning it. The feathering happens when there is an excess gushing with a flexed Ahab. Other than that it's minimal. Bleed through and ghosting are acceptable to me... Rhodia dot pad - back Tomoe River - Front Tomoe River - Back Comparaison Fude nib Ahab - Flex - closeup Some nice feathering on ClarieFontaine Florescence And finally an Ahab vs PensBBS fine nib comparison And water resistance after 18 hours under rain, sleet and snow...
