Noodler's GI Green

Recommended Posts

After having the pleasure of playing with inks at the Noodler's display at the NE Pen Show, I purchased the new GI Green ink.

It goes down almost Emerald green, but after a few hours changes to an almost olive color with an unusual bright orange halo effect around the letters as seen in this second photo.

And here is a timed example of how much the ink color changed over a three hour period. The writing above the "Mon 1:28pm" is from yesterday, to show the full extent of color change. It's pretty cool!

Has anyone else tried this ink and had the same change in color?

I find inks which separate into more than one color so very cool. I wish there were more of them.

 

Thanks for including the ink as used in a flex pen -- it's a great test for feathering.

Great review, and a seriously cool colour (or should that be colours?).

 

I have this feeling that I need a bottle of this. I don't see it on the websites of the usual suspects. Anyone know if it's available in the UK?

 

Thanks,

 

Glenn.

I hope someone responds. I've searched all the ones I know of and its' not out there yet I guess. I want to know what other colors are in the series!

I picked up a bottle of the Noodler's V-mail Rabaul Red at the Boston Pen Show yesterday, but haven't found any information on the series yet.

I spoke with Nathan about these inks. He had a typed-up sheet of information on them, but it wasn't out all the time. I think you had to know to ask, and I happened to be standing there when someone asked so I later quizzed him further.

 

No, these inks aren't available in the UK yet - they're not even officially available in the U.S. yet. They are a kind of prototype that Nathan said he was trying out at the NE Pen Show. Based on how they did, and how people like them, he'll figure out whether to offer them.

 

I bought the Midway Blue and I LOVE IT - photos will be up shortly on my blog (within a day or so).

Ahh I wish I had know they were available, I would have paid someone to purchase me a set. My loss I guess. I hope they become a reality I'm very interested in the whole set of inks. (wink wink) if someone has one to sell I'd be up for it!

I want it. A lot of it.

I was very relieved when I saw the bottle included in the review and noticed the military aircraft. As a physician, GI Green has a very different connotation to me (i.e. gastro-intestinal green)!

 

I am now regretting missing the NE Pen Show...I'll have to be sure to clear the calendar next year!

 

I look forward to seeing the Midway Blue review.

 

Cheers!

..."So the hours are pretty good then?" [Ford] resumed.

The Vogon stared down at him as sluggish thoughts moiled around in the murky depths.

"Yeah," he said, "but now you come to mention it, most of the actual minutes are pretty lousy."

well, as a parent of three boys, that green reminded me of something I used to find in diapers. GastroGreen would be a neat name perhaps???

I would certainly buy that! It would be good for my daily notes.

I normally wouldn't think of this as being one of "my" colors, but I really do like this one. There's something almost metallic looking about it. Perhaps it's the light? Regardless, I will definitely pick up this ink at some point.
