From the album: Chinese pensYet another Majohn (né Moonman) A1 pen in which the steel EF nib as supplied proves to be a width grade or two broader than a Japanese F nib. The nib and feed combination only delivers a relatively narrow range of colours/shading with Noodler's Ink Apache Sunset, out of what has been demonstrated (by the Pilot MR nib mounted on a dip pen handle) the ink is capable of.

I can't believe no one has posted this yet, but I couldn't find any, so here are a couple pictures of my newest pen, TWSBI 580al Orange with a medium nib it writes just like my other 580s, although I don't believe I'd tried apache sunset in one before. lots of shading! I love the feel of the aluminum section. IMG_3806 by astrophoenix, on Flickr IMG_3807 by astrophoenix, on Flickr IMG_3808 by astrophoenix, on Flickr
Ink Review: Noodler's Ink - Apache Sunset Grade: 60.00% Paper Tested On: Norcom Composition, Staples 20lb, 85g Clairefontaine, 90g Rhodia, Post-it Note. Apache Sunset(APS) is an ink that most people that are into fountain pens have heard of. Even those that won't give Noodler's Ink the time of day acknowledge that APS is one of the best shading inks available. APS isn't prone to feathering or bleeding in a fine nib, but when used in a pen with a wet nib, it will easily. Which is a little easier to run into than you might think. This is an ink that is famous for a its shading, so it makes sense that you would want to use it in a wet pen. I put APS into my Noodler's Ahab that I adjusted to be wet and entire letters would bleed into one another. APS at first seemed dry to write with, but after giving it some thought I believe APS only seemed that way because I normally use highly saturated inks. Compared to Noodler's Bad Blue Heron or Black, this ink may seem very thin. It makes sense. A highly saturated ink with a lot of pigment, like Bad Blue Heron or Black, will not provide much shading. APS isn't a permanent ink and is easily cleaned with water. APS has an average dry time. Not too long; not too short. Right about in the middle based on its other properties. APS is not what I would call a work friendly ink. It's not a traditional blue or black ink so you can't really use it on official forms. APS can also be hard to read from a distance. I find that I have to read the page closer than normal when I'm trying to read notes written in APS. But I don't see that as APS's primary role. APS is ideal for artistic purposes and for experimenting with flex writing. And in that role, it excels. In the end, APS is not really well suited to being "well rounded ", but it is still a lot of fun.
Hallel posted a topic in Ink ComparisonsHey everyone, Cybaea did a fabulous review on the recently released Diamine Autumn Oak (which is gorgeous and is worth a look) And when I saw it for sale at Stylus Pens in Edmonton this weekend I decided to pick up a bottle to do some comparisons. So here we go! Noodlers Apache Sunset and Diamine Autumn Oak here is a quick review of NAS here is a quick review of DAO and here they are side by side (not the best quality, I took these with my phone camera) So there they are. My thought is that they have very similar reddish properties but the yellow is brighter in NAS, whereas the yellow in DAO is more earthy and orangy-brown. But very similar! What do you think?
