Noodler's Recreant Rhinoceros (RINO)



Recommended Posts

Noodler's Recreant Rhinoceros (RINO)

 

I was attracted to this ink because it is quite a chameleon. I like inks that transform.  This one writes from black and then dries to a Green/ Teal, depending paper. 

The name of this ink is intended to provoke.  A marketing gimmick: pity as the ink is complex enough, to stand on its own.  

But we’re not here, to debate politics, but enjoy the creativity and diversity of inks

Just check the chroma:

And the water test.

Check the back of the paper:

I don’t have any ink, to can compare it with. Ink writes a grey black and dries to a variety of colours depending on your paper.

What??? I am a decided non-Noodler's fan (not due to politics) and, now, two Noodler's inks in a row that I am now interested in acquiring? 

 

What a nice color! Looks like a complex mix of dyes. 

 

Thanks again for another great review. I love seeing these inks that I've never seen before ... nor even heard of!

Mental note to self:  Try Air Corps Blue Black again.

 

The resultant color in the subject ink reminds me of reviews of Noodler's Polar Green I've seen...

 

This ink has too much Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line to be of practical use for me, but could be a fun experimental or art ink.  Not that I do much of this.

 

I delight in your sketch and to the text I say, "Right on!"

This is a good point. The feathering seems to be tamed on pages with the rhinoceros declarations, for instance, when it seems like you are using a particular pen. Is the feathering particular to certain pens, papers, combination pen/paper, or ... ?

It was not intentional. Believe me ;)

It's nowhere close to Polar Green. The inks are diametrically opposite. Polar Green can stain pens. It is vicious, this one This one doesn't. It's very easy to clean. I would say it's closer in behaviour to General of the Armies

Don't forget I'm using a full flexed Ahab with a wet ink. With finer/drier pens this could be mitigated ;)

Another ink I like! Thank’s for showing it to us. Love the rhino drawing, and the colours that the ink shows there - really nice.

Thank you. I had inkling that you would like it ;)

Thanks for the review, @yazeh!  The ink looks delightfully complex. :)  And I, too, love your rhinoceros sketch!

I wish I could bring myself to buy this one - I think it's just lovely in terms of colour and complexity, and @yazeh 's review just enhances that.

 

But I can't. The message behind this ink is just too much for me to deal with.

 

I know I've said this before, but why can't ink just be about ink?

Quite understandable :)

Thanks a lot for this review! Chameleon looks like the best adjective. That word alone provokes me to get it... now. Feathering, spreading etc is secondary. Sure, it ain't bad at all if an ink is practical but sometimes for me it's just the colour that counts.

Most welcome lapis. It sure is... if I like the colour I accommodate the idiosyncrasies of the ink ;)

It reminds me of the Noodler's inks for the Australian Market.  I'll have to hunt down those inks. Thank you for sharing.

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

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
