Noodler's Bad Belted Kingfisher (3oz)

3oz (90ml) bottle of Noodler's Bad Belted Kingfisher fountain pen ink.

Blue Herons sometimes eat catfish alive. Such treatment of the Noodler's Ink mascot is reprehensible behavior, and thus these regrettable characters make up the "Warden's Ink Series". It is the first fountain pen ink of its kind and is Noodler's Ink's attempt at defeating certain new tools of the modern forger.

The new devices and their technological application have been made known to Noodler's Ink by Nicholas A. Masluk, a gentleman genius from Yale University (with a father who was in the Secret Service no less!). Noodler's Ink is confident in these new methods' ability to defeat the strongest roller ball inks on the planet.

This series aims to hinder this new threat to the longevity of the written word. While combining all the durability of the "bulletproof" designation against the forces of UV light, industrial solvents, detergents, etc., it also includes additional features made to foil the future possibility that forgers might discover certain additional new technologies and use them to ill ends.

wonderful ink July 29, 2014
Reviewer: Robert Maynard from ringgold, GA United States  
I use this as my work ink. It has a beautiful, deep blue-black colour. I use it in my Lamy with a fine nib and it does wonderful on cheap copy paper I have to use at work. No feathering or bleed through, and it dries quickly too. I think this is a very underrated ink that more people need to try.

Puzzled over the color, but brilliant properties. July 26, 2014
Reviewer: Percy Bjorklund from Sweden  
Well, here's the deal: My BBK looks more like what I would expect Bad Green Gator to look. First, I was puzzled, because onscreen samples shows it as the bluest Warden ink. Then I figured, ok, screen is always a bad reference.
I expected a more blue ink.

Update: Anyway the results are in, and this is an excellent ink. Besides Bullet proof etc. it's also durable, as it proves by passing my 10-day fading test without any change at all. As it also writes fairly well, the verdict is 5 stars.
However, 54'th Massachusets writes better still, and is a close match in color. So my BBK is likely to get old in the bottle.

Dries Extremely Fast! Great Color July 10, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
At first reading these reviews I was worried about the time it would take the ink to dry.  I just converted over from the Pilot Precise V5 RT pens which I love, but wanted to try something new.  This ink paired with my Lamy Safari EF nib writes fantastic and the ink dries just as fast as a ballpoint pen.  I write in Cambridge notebooks (mead business notebooks) which have slightly thicker paper than average.  Very excited to use this ink whilst note taking in my upcoming college semester.

At first disappointed July 3, 2014
Reviewer: D Tan from Singapore  
I was at first disappointed when this ink didn't turn out to be as dark as it was in the sample images and other reviews around FPN. I wondered if the mixing of the bottles had changed somewhat.

The ink was a very nice, subtle, quiet Steel Blue, which was actually very nice on its own. I just didn't expect it to be, steely.

Then, I started using the pen I was writing with it in a journal of random paper. the ink from the pen seemed to stay on top of the paper, and the line from the pen (Frost Blue 0.3 fine Platinum Plaisir) was very, VERY thin.

Suddenly realising that maybe I should use a wetter pen for this particular journal, I dug out my Muji Aluminium pen, and filled it with Bad Belted Kingfisher, and then used it in the journal...

and suddenly it was writing in Dark Navy Blue. It was the exact colour I was expecting out of this pen! It looked almost like it SHOULD be from the reviews. So it shades beautifully, and really depends on the pen.

Bad Is Good July 1, 2014
Reviewer: Wallace Welch from Navarre, FL United States  
I've spent the last six months testing Blue and Blue-Black inks with Goulet samples and full-sized bottles, searching for the perfect Blue.  Noodler's Bad Belted Kingfisher is as good as it gets.  Select a nib that matches the flow characteristics that pleases you and it's off to town.

"Bad" does it all without developing performance issues, save it does smear if rubbed with a wet cloth test as most intense, densely colored inks do.  Then blast it with hot faucet water and you'll be amazed how waterproof this ink is! Add great UV resistance and performance on cheap acidic papers.  Heavy flow with most nibs, little bleeding on most cheap papers.  No clogs, easy cleaning, and no dry hesitation.  

Except when I am forced to use black, "Bad" is becoming my always ink.  Goulet pens kept all my orders straight and timely. Thanks.
