Ink: Noodler’s Dark Matter

It’s astounding how I do not already own a bottle of this ink. It has to be my second favorite black ink out there, and I’ve gone through 3 samples already. This ink does some awesome grey to black shading that I absolutely love. It’s dark, but not too dark, and could easily work as a go-to black ink. The dark grey elements in the ink make it unique, and give it some needed character, which is rare in a black ink. The name of the ink is also pretty cool. Here’s a link to the story, definitely check it out. Another thing about the ink that makes it more interesting is that it’s a reformulation of a vintage military issue ink. Most importantly, it looks and performs great. It’s nice and smooth, and the flow in the Levenger L-Tech’s medium nib is great. There’s no way that I’m not buying a bottle when this sample runs dry, I’m hooked.
- Grey to black shading is awesome
- Great flow
- Cool name / back story

GREAT combo! I use that exact same combination except I have the “fine” nib on the L-Tech. This is an ink and pen combo that was made for each other.
I really like the Dark Matter, it’s nice to have a black that has some character to it, as opposed to looking like a black hole.
