Noodler’s Heart of Darkness

Noodler’s Heart of Darkness is one of those inks that almost everyone recommends. Heart of Darkness (or HoD) is praised for is deep, dark colour and bulletproof qualities. I have wanted to try this one for a while but couldn’t justify buying a second bottle of black ink, luckily a fellow fountain pen addict gave me a lovely sample at our monthly meetup. The ink performs very well, flows well, lays a nice line and dries in a very reasonable amount of time. Due to it’s dark colour there is some show through but I was VERY impressed by how little bleed there was. The only time this ink feathered was on moleskine paper. HoD did smear a bit when wet on Rhodia paper but on printer paper it held up perfectly under running water. This is an excellent ink that I will not hesitate to purchase after this sample runs out.

Pen Sketch

A member of FPN wanted people to show him some pen sketches of Coffee mugs and this was my submission. This was drawn on a Rhodia No 38 using a TWSBI filled with Herbin Orange Indien, A Noodler Flex filled with Cactus Fruit and a Lamy Safari 1.5mm filled with Diamine Turquoise.

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.
