Noodler’s Black is a good, solid black. The color is rich and deeply saturated. It was definitely wet in my Caran D’Ache with a fine nib; I imagine it would be almost too wet for me in a pen with a broad nib.
Look at the water test, yo. That’s some impressive behavior! (The “b” in “by” is where I place a single drop of water – can’t see it at all!)
I rarely read reviews before testing the inks on my own. It doesn’t matter too much what other people think about a particular ink – I want to know how it performs for me – in my pens. Having fallen in almost-love with this ink, I decided to see what others were saying . . .
According to Noodler’s, the ink is Waterproof, UV resistant, bleach resistant, fade-resistant, and good for archival purposes. It’s also forgery-resistant. SOLD! I’ve added this ink to my wish list.
