Squeteague - Noodler's

Noodler's is one of the companies that don't need introductions. Nathan's Tardiff work is unimaginable. The guy must be a vampire who doesn't sleep and feeds on developing ideas: new inks, new pens.

 

Squeteague has unusual color and good properties. I'm not sure whether I really like the color.

Thanks for the review! I have a sample of this color and it proved to be such a great match for a pen I was on the fence about, I kept both ink and pen.

My other pen is a Montblanc and...

 

My other blog is a tumblr.

Not a color I like, per se, but thanks for the review. Because who knows -- at some point in the future I might suddenly have a craving for teal and it's good to know that this one is relatively well-behaved.

After all -- I didn't think I would ever have a use for blue black inks....

I haven't bought a bottle of this yet, because I didn't know what a Squeteague is or what color it is. I do like the color; I like strange colors of ink that could only have come from a fountain pen. I'll pick up a bottle in my next big ink order.

 

Thanks for the review.

I'm still trying to figure out how to list all my pens down here.

I have this ink as well...love the colour and writes well...it looks better on the page than I thought when I bought it. I would say it's similar to the Sailor Jentle Yama-Dori

Recently picked up a bottle of this ink. It has become my new favourite. The perfect shade of blue, similar to a tranquil stormy night sky. Love it.

I tried a sample of it today. It looks very close to Akkerman #24. (Zuiderpark Blauw Groen) Since I already have that, I don't need another too similar. Still the Noodler's ink is very nice indeed. (and much cheaper) I do like this type of color, and it shades nicely too which is always a plus for me!

I'm pretty sure I have this ink. I bought a bottle of Ottoman Azure which isn't azure blue at all, but is a dead ringer for visvamitra's writing samples. I think the bottle is mislabeled.

 

Even though I didn't ask for my bottle of this ink, I do like the color and it's a perfect match for the Petrol Lamy Safari.

I got this ink a couple of weeks ago. When I filled 3 of my pens with this ink, It's a very decent colored and nicely pigmented greenish teal black ink.

 

However, I had a major issue. As if the ink didn't want to flow through the feed and nib. And yes, I shook before filling, and this happens both on my fine, medium and bold nib pens. My bottle was dry as a bone. Maybe I got a bad batch, but I had the same issue with bulletproof black, too.

 

As a last resort, I added a drop of dishwashing soap to a 15ml bottle, and now it flows great! I even see the blueish teal color now. Before the dishwashing soap lubrication, it was a beautiful pure green/black, now it shows the exact color that I wanted. Still a little bit more green than the OP's scans, however, very decent green/teal/black.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
