    Noodler's Ink - Bad Blue Heron

    Ink Review: Noodler's Ink, Bad Blue Heron. Grade: 70.00%. Paper: Norcom Composition. Bad Blue Heron (BBH) has been an ink that I've wanted to review for a long time because of its unique properties. BBH is one of Noodler's "Warden" series of inks. It's water resistant, pH neutral, bulletproof/eternal, and UV resistant. At its core, it was designed to be an anti-forgery ink. If you are into fountain pens then you know that the ink is water based, and therefore can be more susceptible to forgery because some inks will wash away without much effort. A lot of Noodler's inks are eternal, but s
  3. I've been asking for a copper/terra cotta ink from Noodler's (preferably water resistant,) but knowing how Nathan Tardif is a one man business with a lot on his plate, I decided to make my own with his inks rather than wait. With just two, Habanero and Beaver mixed in equal parts, I was able to closely approximate Diamine's Ancient Copper. It seems stable in the vial and pens. It seems to behave well, with little feathering or bleed-through, and surprisingly, it seems to have a bit of water resistance. It's a very pretty rusty brown and a good color for drawing. The Noodler's lineup doesn't re
  4. Ink Review: Noodler's Ink - Manjiro Nakahama Whaleman's Sepia. Grade: 75.00%. Paper Tested On: Norcom Composition, 20lb Staples copy paper, and 85g Clairefontaine paper. Manjiro Nakahama Whaleman's Sepia (MNS) is an ink that makes you wonder if the story behind the label is better than ink itself. MNS has some very unique properties: Not only is it bulletproof/eternal, it is listed as being fluorescent and will change from a dark sepia to a red when exposed to bleach. It's a wet writing ink that dries very quickly, but unlike other fast drying inks, it's resistant to feathering and blee
  5. I have been using fountain pens for years and have a nice collection of pens and inks. I have quite a few of Noodler's waterproof colors. Some of them work great for me and I use regularly (Black, Navy, Baystate Blue). I have other colors that I would love to use, but always seem to dry up (gum up? clog up?) in my pen's feed after a few days, and I have to flush it out. (Legal Lapis, Blue Heron, Brown #41 and a few others). I find it strange because some colors behave so well, while others I just can't get to work. Does anyone have any tips on how I could make these keep flowing so tha

    Waterproof Nightshade Mix

    Hi all. Since I posted this in another thread and two other ink 'chemists' have confirmed and approved it, I thought I'd make an honest woman of myself by posting an official recipe here. I wanted a bulletproof Nightshade which is an exact copy of Noodler's Nightshade (which sadly washes away easily.) Here's the recipe and (messy) photo of my effort. It seems to be fully waterproof, leaving a bare touch of pink coloring, when run under a faucet. It seems to behave, both on paper and in a pen and is stable long term when bottled. I used ONLY Noodler's inks so as to avoid any ugly chemical prob
  7. Hey again everyone! My question is how does Noodler's ink behave in a fine nibed Pilot Metropolitan? For reference I was looking at purchasing this ink: https://www.gouletpens.com/noodlers-black-swan-australian-roses-3oz-bottled-fountain-pen-ink/p/N19065 Thanks for your input!

  9. I've had my Neponset for a while now and the thing that's always bugged me is that the middle tine sits slightly above the outside tines when you aren't flexing the nib. This is the only music nib that I have ever used, so im not sure if this is normal. Any advice or insight into the following would be greatly appreciated.... I have experienced times when one of the outside tines will get caught underneath the middle tine. It's usually only happens when I'm writing/drawing on a really scratchy piece of paper. I've always assumed it was because the outside tine was getting caught on the p

    Greetings From Germany

    Hi Folks, I'm pleased to be joining this forum, having spent some time reading posts and learning about pens I have then gone onto purchase. I'm not new to fountain pens, having used them since I was a child. I only started acquiring more pens earlier this year when I realised that Caran d'Ache had discontinued their Caribbean Sea ink. *shakes fist* I'll admit, I panicked and seriously considered dropping over 200€ on the last six bottles I could find online. Then I took a moment and thought about what else I could do with that money... Highlights of my collection are Pelikan M200, M400; E

    Noodler's Ink - Bad Green Gator

    Ink Review: Noodler's Ink - Bad Green Gator Grade: 66.25% Paper Tested On: Norcom Composition, Staples 20lb, 85g Clairefontaine, 90g Rhodia, Post-it Note, Moleskine sketchbook. Bad Green Gator (BGG) is now the 3rd Noodler's 'warden' series ink that I have tried. I have found myself wondering why green would be chosen as one of the forgery resistant colors chosen by Nathan Tardiff. It may have something to do with the chemical composition that goes into whatever he uses to make theses inks forgery resistant; I really don't know. Nathan just may like the color, and he's not the only one. A fr

    Noodler's Ink - Apache Sunset

    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 make
  13. Ink Review: Noodler's Ink- Bad Belted Kingfisher Grade: 81.25% Paper Tested On: Norcom Composition, Staples 20lb, 85g Clairefontaine, 90g Rhodia, Post-it Note. Bad Belted Kingfisher (BBK) is now the 2nd Noodler's "warden" series ink that I have tried. If you're not familiar with this series, you should know that it is an ink that was designed to be forgery resistant. It's designed to resist water, bleach, and even UV light. At first I wondered if BBK would be any different to Bad Blue Heron (BBH). Both are "warden" inks and both are blue, but I think that they are definitely different enoug

    Noodler's Ink - Zhivago

    * Originally posted on my Instagram. Ink Review: Noodler's Ink - Zhivago Grade: 52.50% Paper Tested On: Norcom Composition, Staples 20lb copy paper, 85g Clairefontaine. Zhivago (Zg) is an interesting ink. At first glance Zg looks completely black, but if you look closely you'll see that Zg is actually a very dark green. You could even call it a green-black ink. This shade of dark green reminds me a lot of moss or water clouded with algae. Zg is a very smooth writing ink that flows easily through every pen I've put it in. It's very wet, and ideal for doing flex writing, even with a lon

    Noodler's Walnut

    Dear Friends, I have been eager to try this ink for some time and I have to say the wait has been absolutely worth it. Please note, despite spending the last 3+ hours trying to capture the actual colour and shading which leans somewhat to the green spectrum (think Noodler's Burma Road Brown), the images are showing NW as being very much on the red side - this is not so in real life (in my experience with this bottle at least). I love the warm orange/ green hues present where shading is observed. Cleaning: relatively easy but note this ink is saturated and thicker (think Diamine's Sargasso
  16. Really just an FYI that temporarily Noodler's will be switching to plastic, so once stores supplies run out you would receive a plastic ink bottle. Description from Noodler's: In order to avoid higher costs and a reduction in weight for the 3 oz bottle, Noodler's Ink will be switching to a UV light resisting bottle with a near perfect score in resisting water migration that is far better than any other non-glass bottle we could find. The choice the bottle industry gave us was a reduction in size to "the European Union standard" (think 45 ml and 60 ml...European measures only) and a simul
  17. Hello, Everybody! Does anyone have a current list of Noodler's inks with their properties? There is one posted on the Noodler's website in .PDF, but it is lacking some of the more recent inks. I have replicated it by hand into an excel document to make it easily filterable and searchable. Just wondering if anyone has the properties for the inks not already represented on that list. Thanks. -_Eric

    Noodler's Ink - Nightshade

    * Originally posted on my Instagram page. Ink Review: Noodler's Ink, Nightshade. Grade: 62.50%. Paper Tested On: Norcom Composition, Clairefontaine 85g, 20lb Staples brand). Nightshade (NS) is a dark mauve, or burgundy, colored ink that reminds me a lot of Noodler's Black Swan in Australian Roses. On cheaper paper it sometimes has a brown quality to it that reminds me of rust, especially when just writing normally. When used in a flex pen, the shading is very subtle, which can be appealing depending on the desired application, but on very absorptive paper, the color becomes matte and t
  19. Here's a nice little ink, a little boring, a little nostalgic, that was (as far as I know) only given out/sold at the 2013 New England Pen Show. I wasn't lucky enough to attend, but someone on eBay apparently was. It is, like the Noodler's V-Mail inks, a reconstructed vintage recipe. It's a bit boring, but I do like it. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/661/tiH35e.jpg

  21. Hello everyone! I'm new to the FP network (about 5 minutes ago) and am still learning the ropes of both the network and the fountain pen itself. I am a student in high school and just started using fountain pens this semester and am loving it. I own two Noodler's Ahabs and am looking to get something that will work better with cheap paper, as I cannot shell out money for Rodia, Clairefontaine and the like due to the fact that I take about 2-3 pages of notes a school day.I have been drawn to the TWSBI mini because of the modern design and because it seems to work well with cheap paper. Is this
  22. Hello there, I am thinking of dedicating my new Pilot Custom 823 Clear Demonstrator to one of the following inks: Visconti Blue Noodler's Aircorp Noodler's Navy Akkerman Shocking Blue Akkerman Blue-Green Does anybody know if those inks stain the barrel of said 823 demonstrator? Thanks for your help! Luis
  23. A new ink from Noodler's I ran across on eBay. It's called Black and Blue. Looks like a great color, but the ink is out of stock but no one else seems to carry it. Any intelligence on this?
  24. Good Day Folks.s I'm in a shoping mood for Noodler's inks. I'm sure someone here has good sources. It would greatly appreciated if someone would share that source. Thank You!
  25. Hello all, One of my favorite inks is Noodler's 54th Massachusetts. I like it as a daily ink in one of my pens because it's a dark enough blue/black that I feel it's appropriate for just about any task (not that I'm in a legal setting or anything anyway). I have noticed, though, that it tends to creep a lot. I thought at first it might be the pen I was using, but I tried it in other pens and had the same result. I recently started using it in an Edison Pearlette and it's doing it with that as well. Is this just a characteristic of this ink or is it just maybe a bad batch? Anyone else notici
