Noodler’s Nikita

I was originally drawn to Noodler’s Nikita for 2 reasons, 1. The Noodler’s hype 2. The Free Eye Dropper Pen. Well it turns out the reason I like the most is that it is a great performing, great looking red ink.

I received the 4.5oz (or 133ml for the metrically minded) bottle in my first order from the Goulet Pen Company and the first impression is a medicinal one. The large eye dropper bottle makes quite the impression and the label is humourous. The bottle comes with a nice eye dropper top and feels solid.

The ink is a nice pure, darkish red. It writes nicely, flows well and lays a wet line. This is a great red and second only to Diamine Poppy Red in my opinion.

  2. Gosh I just got the same ink a few days ago, from Goulet nonetheless. I really love the shade of this red and will be reviewing it some time in the future. How do you like the included pen? Hard to find a cheaper fountain pen but I love the way it writes and the ink capacity (it’s an eyedropper duh!) is enormous.

  3. OK, me again. I’m really confused. Does the included pen have a flex nib? Mine flexes a little but not enough that I would call it a true flex nib. Can’t wait for your impressions on the pen. I love how mine writes.

      It seems to flex a little but not as much as the flex, nor does it write like a flex. Nice pen though.

  4. Thanks for clearing this up. So the nib on this pen =/= the one on Noodler’s Flex pens. Good to know, now I can order a Noodler’s Flex without worrying that it will suck.

  6. Thanks so much for the link!! The pen that comes with Nikita is definitely different than the Noodler’s flex pen, there is hardly a similarity at all other than the fact they’re both pens 😛
