Ink Review: Noodler's Ink, Dragon's Napalm.

Grade: 58.75%.

Paper: Norcom Composition.

 

Noodler's Dragon's Napalm (DN) is one of those colors that I may have never bought on my own. Fortunately, a 3oz bottle was given to me as a gift. I would call DN either a fulvous or a deep cadmium color. Or, if you're from Tennessee like me, Volunteer orange. DN may look like a highlighter ink, but a pretty long drying time may make you think twice about using it as such. If you can get past the long dry times, DN will burn off the page.

 

You may find DN to be one of those inks that is a little hard to read on its own and may even strain your eyes if you stare at it too long. DN isn't waterproof, bulletproof, or eternal, so it's pretty easy to clean. Even from your hands so long as you wash them quickly enough. But, DN is fluorescent. If you shine a black light on it you'll probably be reminded of a construction workers safety vest. However, it is interesting to note that when I put water drops and hand sanitizer onto the ink, the portions washed out glowed just as bright as Noodler's Blue Ghost. Just be aware, that according to the Noodler's properties chart that DN does not respond to all UV wavelengths. I was fortunate that it reacted to mind.

 

DN is a smooth writing ink that will be prone to feather. Especially on cheap office paper. I've done some flex writing with a Zebra G nib, but the ink explodes and bleeds heavily unless I use some pretty nice paper. You're not going to get very much shading out of DN, which is a shame because of its beautiful color. I think I'll try to put some Whiteness of the Whale in a sample to see what happens.

 

Overall, I love DN. The bright color and severe feathering and bleeding may not be for everyone, and I get that. But, if you love orange, and feel like you can handle a a Hungarian Horntail, then I would highly recommend this ink.

Thank you. I love Dragon's Napalm. I am so pleased you caught it under black light.

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

Thank you. I agree. It is hard to miss. Makes me wish the grades I give out at work were on paper!

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
