noodler's ink

along with my purchase of a new fountain pen, i bought some new ink.

i kept hearing about noodler's ink, with their bulletproof black. since i was running out of the parker quink that i'd been using for a while, i got a bottle of the noodler's to try it out.

i also did a rough test of the waterproof properties, comparing the two inks. the paper was submerged briefly in water:

wow, pretty good.

at $18 a bottle, i found the noodler's a bit pricey. but it turns out that the bottle is large (3 oz.), so the value is quite good, with the same cost per ml as the parker quink.
