Noodler's Inkmyn Sapphire - Better Than Parker Penman Sapphire


amberleadavis

Recommended Posts

So, if you've been watching, we are doing a comparison of blue inks - well, all the inks are compared to Parker Penman Sapphire. Since several of our members are looking for a PPS replacement, I thought I'd add my recipe.

 

1:1 Noodler's Navajo Turquoise and Noodler's La Couleur Royale.

 

Check it out below, the bigger letters are PPS.

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

Thank you! I've had a lot of samples to look through and see what was unique about the ink.

Looks about dead-on to my eyes. You've always made some very nice mixes. How do I make 12% blue balls? :)

My word, that is amazing. Hats off to you, amberleadavis!!!! I am going to do what everyone else is doing, go out and get a bottle of LCR and start mixing like mad. The big (bad) question must be asked: does it sheen? I am NOT going to pout if it doesn't, Noodler's is not noted for their sheen. Very good good thing, there, thanks for all your hard work.

No sheen. Doesn't feather or bleed on cheap paper with a wet pen, but give me time.

Navajo Turquoise is one of my faves for its beautiful shading. I have a bottle and love it.

 

Is there something you can add to an ink to make it sheen? Just curious.

I think you should try a purple that is a sheener. The trick to the shading seems to be NNT since that shades amazingly well.

NNT? What is that? Oh Wait...Noodler's Navajo Turquoise. Duh, been away from Washington D.C. too long. Someone did say that Le Colour Royale sheened a lot...

I thought if it would sheen, it would seen on TR. But, it was a my first mix and I did it inside the pen. (I was a bad inky).

You have piqued my interest. I am going to have to do this now, which means buying more inks.

 

Oh, how you play on my obsession... I can see you there, with a smile on your face, like a cat that has just got into the cream.

Well, I was planning on sending you some inks in the mail.

 

PS

As to the kitty comments, I aver nothing.

OMG Amber! That is terrific!

 

I just got to Washington for the show. As soon as I saw your post, I added two items for my shopping list. Then I realized.... if Amber said it, the stuff will be long gone by tomorrow when I get to the show.

 

And to think I remember a lawyer somewhere once telling me she didn't much care for blue ink! :-)

Hmm. I have Navajo Turquoise. I wonder if I have something that will get me the sheen (must look at the purple inks I have.... Unfortunately, I don't recall any of my purple inks being particularly sheeny. I'll have to play around some when I get back from DCSS. And then compare it to the cartridges of PPS that Kestrel sent me a while back....

Spent the whole afternoon at the show, but I didn't recognize anybody but Richard Binder, because of his hat.

 

They are using these stupid lanyard name tags that turn the printed side toward the wearer 95% of the time. Might as well have saved the money. With the few you can see, the names are printed so small that you have to lean in to read them. Make yourselves known, folks!

 

I've seen some really nice pens today, including a beautiful vintage Pelikan and the Namiki Emperor Goldfish, which is so much more beautiful than its photographs.

Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

It's a plot. No Navajo Turquoise available at the Goulets. All sold out.

      @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

      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
    • A Smug Dill
      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.
