CheesyWalnut posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopI am looking for a fast drying blue or black ink that dries quickly and does not feather on cheap paper (mead, copy paper). I am currently using Noodler's bulletproof black with a fine nib metropolitan and although the ink doesn't feather, it takes quite a long time to dry, even on cheap absorbent paper; sometimes after leaving the ink to dry for a day, it still smears when rubbed. The only other ink I've tried is the pilot Namiki black that came with the metro, and that seems to dry fairly quickly, but feathers badly on cheap paper. Bulletproof ink isn't really important for me, any ink that works well with cheap paper and dries fast will do. I have considered Lamy, Quink, Waterman, and Pelikan inks, but I am not sure which one will work the best. Also, is there any ink that works well on whiteout tape? All on the pens I've tried including rollerballs smear horribly on whiteout. Thanks in advance.
This one I might get... like the dusty purple... don't care for the Fast Drying properties.. You can find it at PurePens.co.uk.... Don't know if it is exclusive to them. http://purepens.co.uk/acatalog/AmericanAristocracy.jpg
Last January I bought a Lamy Palladium, medium nib, that was love at the first sight - finishing, balance, look and feel, superb design, everything was there, expect for the fact that it writes really wet. I'm not a left-handed, but write in a way that my hand drags over the previously written line. You know what happens. After a bit of research I found Noodler's Bernanke Blue, a quick drying ink that would solve the problem. As I have never used a "special" ink, I was kind of skeptic, what made the outcome even more satisfying - no smearing WHATSOEVER. It literally takes ONE second to dry! I want to congratulate Noodler's for the terrific product and Goulet Pens for the amazing service! http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b519/biggi675/HUGS%20AND%20KISSES/kiss-and-thank-you-smiley-emoticon_zpsnif5jqsy.gif Marcelo
