Noodler's Navy (3oz Bottled Ink) is rated 4.6383 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A favorite I wasn't sure I'd like this ink at first as I have had pretty mixed luck with many other darker blues generally being too muted and uninteresting. I was let down by Tsuki-yo and several other inks I thought I'd like, so I figured Navy was going to end up the same way. Noodler's Navy is almost the exact ink I was hoping Tsuki-yo would be. I am happy with a tinge of green, even if it makes the naming questionable...but what struck me was that the ink possessed so much more saturation with equally punchy shading, and flowed generally very well. This stuff is a keeper if you find a lot of blue-blacks to be a bit muted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Don't Like Blue It's probably heresy on this website, but I really don't like blue ink. One exception I found was Baystate Blue. Noodler's Navy is another one. I think the reason I like this one is that it isn't a true blue color. It has something else, and it has really nice shading. I'm not artistic enough to describe the color, but it's dark and maybe sort of a greenish/black blue? Believe me, if I write a nice review of a blue, it is special. I don't like blue, so this one really does stand out as special. It has good shading, doesn't railroad much, flows well, dries fairly quickly, and it is a nice color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite ink...it's addicting! I wasn't quite sure about this the very first time I used it. What color was it really? Deep teal, dark blue-green, a wannabe blue-black of some kind? And then there were the variations on those themes depending on which pen it was in. Finally it found its permanent home in a Pilot Metropolitan w a medium nib and there it was, a beautiful, smooth silky greenish-blue with really nice shading to boot! But...how Do I describe that color? I had read online somewhere about the seemingly odd "misuse" of the name of this color. It really isn't "navy blue" at all, at least not in the traditional sense. And then there was that article about how the inspiration for the color came not from the generic term "navy" but from the actual Navy...The US Navy that is! During WWII the USN had experimented with various color schemes for their carrier-based fighters used in the Pacific theatre of operations. Several colors, patterns, star symbols and insignias were tried and tampered with all to accomplish both effective camouflage as well as easy recognition by our own boys to distinguish our planes from the enemy fighters and even those from other country's Air Forces. So the colors changed frequently...Until they finally landed on "Glossy Sea-Blue"...eureka! That color not only lives on in the legends of US Navy fighter aviation history but also in a bottle of Noodler's ink which pays homage to that period of US Navy history! Look it up online, you will see it's a near perfect match...and I love it. Gotta love Nathan and his crew at Noodler's, just some very cool stuff there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I normally don't go for teal-leaning inks, but ... Noodler's Navy is a complex color, a dark blue with some teal to it, which shows up in a more pronounced way with shading. I should say that it "flirts" with being teal but doesn't quite have enough green to make it there. I understand that it is a "reproduction" ink of an old ink that was called "navy", but perhaps the most "navy" thing I can connect it with is the color of US carrier-based fighters in the Pacific in WWII. Smooth, wet, partially bulletproof, and not particularly difficult to clean. In my book this is one of the best inks in the blue-black category.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great ink with solid color The color of this ink reminds me for sure the document of my father was signing while he was in the Navy. That's the reason because I bought this ink and it's the best blue that I ever used. So color for me is a five star satisfaction. I use to write and to sketch with dip pens and with fountain pens. With fountain pens great flow, no problems. THe same with dip pen. What leave me something less impressed is the feathering. It is more liquid the the BulletProof Black so it can feather a lot and you have to match the right paper, because I think not all the papers are worth this incredible color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How did I miss this one?! I discovered this when a fountain pen pal sent me a letter written with it, and I was completely smitten. What was this beautifully shading, velvety, teal green-blue beauty on the page? A NOODLERS? How did I not know about it?! Really, this one is underrated. I know it's not exactly their lowest-volume seller, but still. I think this ink is absolutely sensational. The color is beautiful, it behaves wonderfully, and it really is one of those inks that, on the page, is going to make people lean in and take a closer look. A new favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My only blue This is the only blue I use. It is a unique shade, but works fine for business usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A deep blue with a lighter side I really love this ink. The ink swab you see on the website (that really deep, nearly black blue color) is only scratching the surface. When I used this with a flex pen, especially a fountain pen as opposed to a dip pen, it expressed beautiful shading from the deep blue you expect from this color and a really light undertone which just does wonders. Will bleed on cheap paper however.
