Noodler's Black Swan in Australian Roses Fountain Pen Ink Review

Here is a review of the new Noodler's Black Swan in Australian Roses fountain pen ink. I tried to scan my review but the colors came out totally wrong, so I took a picture of it instead. It looks a lot closer to real life than the scan did, but it's still not perfect. Never-the-less, if you view it at 100% magnification, it looks very close. Note: There is an error in the review. I wrote 9550 and it's a 2668 Firm Medium nib.

For the second portion of my review, I did the standard water test. I simply ran the sample under a faucet for about 30 seconds or so. This ink is nearly bulletproof. The red tones washed away, leaving the black ink that is still completely readable.

Update 5/16/11 - Turns out it was my pen that was the problem with the feed drying out. After this review I flushed the pen more thoroughly and cleaned it and refilled it with the same ink and it didn't give me another issue.

  1. Nice review. I think the color is great and it is good that it has some bulletproof characteristics given the lengthy dry time.
