Review Noodler's Red-Black

Friday, July 3, 2009

I love my Moleskine Journals. I take them everywhere with me. On the job I use one notebook that contains all of my notes, projects etc. In my quest to find good inks that match with this beautiful thin paper I deceided to buy some Noodler's. That name was praised by many of you on the net.

I just received my first shipment of Noodler's ink. The first one I tested was the Noodler's Red-Black. I like the small bottle's although I ask myself how I would empty the last drop of it.... Watch out when you open a bottle of Noodler's they are filled to the edge!

"Lamy Studio (fine nib) filled with Noodler's Red-Black.
I was amazed by this beautiful color. It shades very nicely from red to black giving it a brownish feel.
This was my very first Noodler's ink I could test.
The lamy Studio is a wet-writer but it does not feather or makes a mess of the other site of this page.
The ink takes about 20 seconds to dry.
I'm happy that I found another good combination for my Moleskine, wich I love so much.

With the "wet"-writer like the Lamy 2000 it bleeds a little bit trough the pages of the Moleskine paper. But I also tried the ink with Pelikan M1000 (fine), Sailor 911 large (medium) then their is no bleedtrough at all.

Well again a combination of ink, pen and moleskine paper that can work if you were looking for that. I'm looking forward to see your feedback.

Noodler’s Ink” has the lowest cost per volume in stores that carry it and it's 100% made in the USA from cap to glass to ink. The ink with the catfish on the label symbolizes a southern sport that attempts to equalize the struggle between man and animal in the quest for a sense of fair play — and thus a fair price.

Thanks for the great review. I've never tried this ink but I was looking for something dark and red ish, so your review couldn't have come at a better time.

Beautiful color and a wonderful job. You may have just changed my mind about what my next ink purchase is. Great photography also. Nr

Nice, and glad to see another Lamy 2000 fan! ;-)

I used a lamy alstar on my moleskine and it did bleedthrough more than I'd like. Also it feathered.

I will still use it, though, because I love the color.
