Noodler's King Philip Requiem 2015 Le


Recommended Posts

I really am going to have to find something special to get for this inky FPN friend who has supplied me with generous amounts of limited edition Noodler's inks. Thank you inky friend! :wub:


This was the third ink of the 2015 Commonwealth Pen Show special inks. And it might be the best of the three. Normally I don't go for such magenta inks as this, but when I started writing I realized this was the most beautiful ink I'd ever seen. It is really such a pity that this was LE. Gone! Unobtanium forever! :crybaby: Especially since the dye used in this ink was discontinued, or no longer available. A shame really.


Pen: Aurora Ipsilon Deluxe (M-14kt)

Papers: MvL=Mohawk via Linen, TR=Tomoe River, Hij=Hammermill 28 lb inkjet, Rhodia=90g Rhodia ivory


This ink is extremely water resistant. It dries nearly instantaneously on somewhat absorbent papers, and quite fast on others. With wet pens you may get some show through. The Aurora I used here is not a very wet pen, and I didn't encounter problems. There is some light staining on the converter. I haven't emptied the pen yet, so I don't know if it will be difficult to clean, but it doesn't seem like much. So, that could be an issue for demonstrators, pens with clear barrels, and the like.








Fairly rapid drying even on Rhodia.



Quite water resistant.

White Lotus, thank you for this review. This ink is one of my very favorites and I hoard it. It is not fade resistant and the closest ink you find to it is Saguaro Wine, but it's much prettier.

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