Noodler's El Lawrence (3oz Bottled Ink) is rated 4.625 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Other Newest Noodler's Ink I bought this ink solely on the label showing T E Lawrence aboard his Brough Superior motorbike. This is probably the one he was riding when he veered to avoid hitting school children and was fatally injured. Plus, of course, my first name is Lawrence. But, back to the ink. Green ink is one of my least liked colors but this one is dark, bold and masculine. I have moved this one into the place formerly occupied by Sailor Gentile green. Ya just can't beat Noodler's! Goulet Pen Company's service is A1 with me. They shipped my order the same day and both ink bottles were well packed in padded plastic wrap and a plastic zipper bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Black! Being a motorcycle aficianado, I was quite attracted to the picture of Lawrence on his Brough Superior! And the ink is every bit as superior! People say it looks like dirty motor oil, and it does....but not in a "put-offish" way. I like it. I find it works well in my OB nibs and gives a nice heavy line....doesn't really shade, but hints at something right on the edge of you color sense.....is it black; is it kind of gray? Is it sort of greenish? Yep! It's all of those. Unique I would say. This and Badger and Blade's 5'Oclock Shadow are nice alternatives to simply black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've never met a Noodler's Ink I didn't like. The color could easily pass for black, put a drop into a cup of water though and you'll see the nice brown-green it really is. It seems to be a little dry, if I don't write for a minute or two it takes a few strokes to get a good flow again. If you leave it unused for a day it takes more than that. I've tried diluting it about 50/50 with water and that helps a lot with the flow. Even though I'm using an extra fine Pilot nib, adding water allows me to get a bit of shading in my writing now. It reacts with a 405nm laser glowing for about half a second so I'm betting it looks pretty cool under a black light.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love/Hate I like black ink. I also like black ink with a little variation than just boring old black. When I got this ink, the only pen I had available was my Lamy Studio. I have never disliked a pen and ink combination more than I did the Studio/El Lawrence combo. I almost tossed the ink because I found the color uninspiring, dull and it flowed horribly in my Studio. I hung on to it and inked up my Ahab. BAM! That's it. The ink is definitely more green/brown than it is green/black. The Ahab brings out lots of shading and variation in the ink. So while I was disappointed that this isn't going to be a daily ink for me, I was pleased to find that it had a little more spunk when used with the semi-flex nib in my Ahab.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from El Lawrence Ink color ~ Light green/tan? The El Lawrence ink I received was not black/green, or a "used oil" color, but a light greenish~tan color {that's my best guess}. It has all the ink properties I wanted, so on that side of the house, I'm not complaining. I decided to mix in some Bad Black Moccasin to darken it up some. I wouldn't say my efforts make my ink mix the color I wanted, but since both these Noodler's inks have similar properties, and the BBM is really black, my mix is not light green/tan anymore, and it's usable for me. It appears El Lawrence is sold out again. I'm wondering if any others had a similar experience with this ink not being as dark as they thought with the last batch that just hit the streets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dark, Well mannered, but with flair. I love this ink, on the nib it looks like old oil; but on the paper it has a blackish, greenish tinge. Lubrication and dry time seemed good, as did flow. The ink is also eternal. now for the "with flair": the ink fluoresces under UV light. My experience was that when liquid (in the pen, on the nib, or in the vial) it glowed greenish, but after drying on the paper it glowed in the blue range. Perhaps it is just the paper and nib width I was using, but i thought it was interesting. Keep up the good work -- BTW I loved the interview for Write Time on 12 Oct 2011.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feels old and dirty and grimy...in a GOOD way! I bought this ink looking for something different than the usual pantheon of bright colors or black/something or other colors I typically use. This was a good alternative. It lays down in a wet blackish brown, however dries with a greenish-brown hue. Once dried and on the page you get a feel for something out of a Da Vinci notebook, but a bit darker. The only issues I have evolve around the pen. I have yet to find a pen that does not develop start up issues with this ink. I've used it now in several pens (mostly sub $100 pens) and it suffers start up issues in every one. If it sits for 2-3 days I may even have to wet the nib in certain pens. Besides that though I love the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flavor of the year..so far at least. I have been intrigued by this color for a while and decided it was time to give in and buy a full bottle. I couldn't be happier! I have to write for the better part of my work day and have been using more conventional colors I felt were appropriate for the work place. I still use blue for more of my work, but I have switched to El Lawrence for work that doesn't get filed, which makes up a good chunk of my writing. I have it loaded in a Vac 700 medium and in my waterman 52 full flex. The green in this ink is extremely muted to a point where it is presentable in memos and notes. Under the flex of the waterman, it is an oil spill black. I LOVE the oil color! It isn't a very wet ink either, which works for me since it allows for better dry times. I am hoping to expand my work inks over the span of this year, but this ink will be staying put in my work horse pen, the vac 700!
