    Noodler's Bad Green Gator

    Noodler's Bad Green Gator, belongs to the warden series (4 inks). It’s forgery proof. There are inks that are love and first write, this was one of them, maybe because I have a thing for Gators. But it’s a bad, bad ink. If I didn’t have a bottle of Polar Green, then this would’ve been my go-to green ink. But thankfully it isn't. Confusing, eh? 🇨🇦 It made the Osmiroid pen, which is dry, write like a dream and no ink normally does, (the pen has flow issues) But would I recommend it? absolutely not. It’s one of the most difficult inks that I’ve ever cleaned out of a pen. More difficult than Kung Te-Cheng and Polar Green, which are low maintenance compared to this thing. The ink sticks to everything. I had to let it soak in a pen solution twice for long hours. It'll make your Ef and would bleed the bejesus out of any paper. I didn't test it on copy paper, it's pointless when it bleeds through Tomoe River 68gr paper (the thick one_ I would recommend this only for cheap pens with a great seal, and with a F nib on Midori/ Rhodia/ Maruman papers. Or alternatively on thick absorbent papers. Let's start with the chroma: Writing samples: Photo: Comparison: Water test (Left side was under water for 10 second, nothing budged) And finally an artwork: Inkotober yearly challenge - Sing Other inks used: Anderson Pens' Oshkosh Denim Platninum Carbon Black Super5 - Delhi (orange ink) Pen Pébéo Gold Marker Lierre Sauvage Mixed with a hint of Kuretake Black ink.... · Pens used: Pilot Kakuno Ef, Lamy Safari (EF/F/M/B, 1.1), Osmiroid Copper Plate · What I liked: It made the Osmiorid write like a dream, ultra fast dry times, waterproofness, name. · What I did not like: bleed through, limited use, cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, · What some might not like: Almost everything about it  · Shading: Non-existent. · Ghosting: On most papers. · Bleed through: same as above. · Flow Rate: Very wet · Lubrication: Above average. · Nib Dry-out: Did not notice. · Start-up: No. · Saturation: Yes. · Shading Potential: Dismal · Sheen: Nope. · Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: Yes. · Nib Creep / “Crud”: Did not notice. · Staining (pen): It sticks to everything. It's like the Baystate Blue of Greens · Clogging: No. · Cleaning: High maintenance. Needs pen flush and multiple rounds of it. · Water resistance: Excellent. · Availability: 3 oz /90 ml bottles. Please don't hesitate to share your experience, writing samples or any other comments. The more the merrier
  2. 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 a good choice? If not what else? At the same time, I am looking for cheap paper that will bring out the best in my inks without feathering and such. Is Staplers Bagasse any good? And finally, if I do get the TWSBI mini, would Noodler's "Bad Blue Heron" be safe to use in it?
