Stationery Review 6: Noodler's Black Bulletproof Ink (90ml) USD 14

Hi Guys, 

Noodler's Ink is a brand built by Nathan Tardif in Massachusetts, United States of America. It now has more than 100+ inks that have gained much popularity. They all are 100% handmade in the USA and no material is procured from China and totally made in the USA. I got these from my brother who brought them from the USA to India and I brought them here to South Africa. It's also available at Applebee pens and WriteGear online stores. Check this solid black ink in this video. 
Stationery Review 6: Noodler's Black Bulletproof Ink (90ml) USD 14

Noodler's has around 15 range of inks that I told you in this video and this Black forms part of their second range named Bulletproof inks. This ink is water resistant to the most and it was so difficult to take it out from my Glass pen as well. It still reflects the blackish tint and I have done some more writing with other inks with the glass pen thereafter. 

It's really strong in terms of being bulletproof which makes it the most popular Black ink amongst the collectors and users of fountain pens. All the portions on the ink swabs looked like water dipped in some black material and on the wetter portions, the paper was totally black. 

My only problem is that I have to commit a pen to this ink and then I can't use that pen to any other colour ink. Coming to that one pen is the main issue and though I have many pens, I have to identify the one that will always be filled with this ink. As I am writing this, I think the Parker Vector XL will be best suited for this ink as it has a medium wider nib and the body colour is also matt black. The pen writes a little wetter as well so more ink means more black legible writing on the paper. Hence, I can now definitely go ahead and finish the already installed ink in the pen and clean the same for this ink to take over the beautiful body of Parker Fountain Pen

It's also available at Applebee pens and WriteGear online stores. The price ranges from ZAR 360 to ZAR 560 but you will get them locally in South Africa. WriteGear currently have no stock as of date but maybe they will have the same in future. Between Applebee and WriteGear, there is hardly any change in the prices so if you are in Cape Town, you should travel to the Write Gear shop and if in Johannesburg, travel to the Applebee collection point for pickup as then you don't pay for the courier charges.

The ink in the Noodler's ink really spoils your hands etc so be careful with this ink. The bottle doesn't help as well as it's filled to the top and has a wide opening. That's done by the brand to provide a lot of value to its customers which I totally respect.

This ink is also water resistant and can sustain a lot of water on the paper and retain your writing. Also, all the drawings on the ink bottles are made and that makes each bottle unique. I totally loved the Noodler's range of inks and if I could find money I would definitely invest more money into their smaller bottles.

What are your views on a single person's started brands similar to Organics Studio and Noodler's Inks? These are not corporate style or branded inks and need the support of all the users to buy and share their inks with the world.
