Notes: This has been loaded in my Lamy 2000 for quite some time. It’s really smooth and I love the color, especially on cream colored paper. It’s pretty similar to Noodler’s Ellis Island Blue Black, but this ink leans more towards blue than the Ellis Island does. As with many Noodler’s inks, there is some nib creep, so if that bothers you, you have been warned. I personally don’t mind it, as it’s purely aesthetic. Overall, I really like this ink, but I don’t know if it’s different enough from the standard Noodler’s Blue Black (which I already have a bottle of) to justify purchasing a whole bottle. The ink has some very minor shading characteristics that really come out on Tomoe River paper. After three passes, there’s no bleed or feather on Rhodia and the ink only gets incrementally darker with each pass. So what you write or sketch the first time is pretty much what you’re going to end up with. I’d definitely recommend checking out a sample of it, it’s a great example of blue black that’s a pleasure to write with.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the pictures!
