INK SWAB: 22/365 – Noodler’s 54th Massachusetts Posted on January 22, 2015 by Christine (Pentulant) Noodler’s 54th Massachusetts seems to be a very popular ink. I’ve not written with it. Maybe you can tell me – is it the color, the way it behaves, something else?
I think it’s kind of a love it or hate it ink. I personally really love it. I really like the color, and the fact that it’s water resistant and doesn’t feather much make it great for general use on the go. I do get tons of nib creep with it, and it has kind of a strong smell (neither of which bother me).
count me as a fan too. I really like the color. It dries fast and behaves well on cheap paper and Rhodia alike. Because of this it lives in my Kaweco AL Sport and in my pocket all the time.
