Noodler's Ink Properties Current Database?


Recommended Posts

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.

The chart on the Goulet Pens website is not as recent as the one on the Noodler's website (January of this year vs. May for the Noodler's site's chart). The Noodler's chart also has some inks, such as Henry Hudson Blue, which are exclusive to other vendors (HHB is exclusive to Fountain Pen Hospital in NYC).

That being said, there are some inks, such as the FPN exclusives, which do not appear to be on either list....

Thanks, Ruth. I'm building a spreadsheet database for my inks, but I want to include all of them so I can "fill the holes" in colors and properties when I have the extra money. This is a long, dangerous road that is really just a way for me to enable myself into buying more ink. More colors, more brands, different properties....I guess I've got the ink bug pretty bad :-) 40 bottles for now. I may hit the pause button for a little while. My goal would be to have an excel spreadsheet, with a tab for each brand and a breakdown of the properties similar to the Noodler's info. Ultimate "pie in the sky" goal is to have all of the tabs feed a master list with hyperlinked scans of ink swabs (or photos or whatever). Right now the tab labeled "all inks" is simply a cut and paste from the other tabs. Here's a .jpg of what I am working on.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
