Noodlers Ink The Plain's Blue Rainbow



Recommended Posts

This is a review of my new custom color from Noodlers. Some of you may have seen my previous color Omaha Brown. Every custom fountain pen I build comes with a bottle of ink. Previously I had been sending out Omaha Brown and then I ran out. I went to the fine people at Noodlers and requested another color. My only stipulation this time was that it would be a bright Turquoisey Blue. (Okay, that is a really specific only stipulation I know) Anywho, they agreed and we went back and forth on the details. The end result is what you see in the review below. It turned out that Nathan just combined together many of the properties of Noodlers Navajo Turquoise with Noodlers Blue and came up with what you see here.

 

The ink is waterproof and does behave pretty well. The only time I have gotten any feathering at all is on Moleskine paper.... which almost everything feathers on. It doesn't bleedthrough and didn't showthrough on any of the papers I've tested it on. It does have some shading depending on what paper you use. I had the most on Rhodia using a pretty flexible Pilot Custom Heritage 92 nib. I could go on, but I am obviously biased :D .

 

I would love to hear what everyone thinks of the ink. There are 2 ways to get it. You can have a pen made or you can click on the link below and find it at my website. Thanks for looking.

Looks really nice: I like the dramatic shading and reasonable water resistance. The hue has a slight green element, right?

Interesting color. Reminds me a lot of Robert Oster Carbon Fire, which I just got a sample of recently (trying to find something that is close to MB Leo Tolstoy LE; which Carbon Fire is not, and neither is KWZI Walks Over Vistula -- CF is too dark, and WOV is a little too green tinged).

I noticed the greenish tinge too, but only after I compared it against several other inks.... especially the Robert Oster Blues.

When we were working out the details of the color one of the things I requested is that it be similar to many of Robert Osters Blue colors. I think the 2 I mentioned and compared it too above were Bondi Blue and Blue Water Ice.

Since you've done that with your brown ink, would you mind requesting some details on this ink's properties too, such as archival/lightfast/bulletproof/etc.

Thanks for the ink review! That's a nice idea to send a bottle of ink with every sale of a pen to the pen owner. Hmm....meaningful gesture on your part.

Wow, looks line NT has been working on making the water resistant inks less chalky and that ink you have there looks great!

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