Noodler's Nikita (4.5oz Bottled Ink) with Free Pen is rated 4.6923 out of 5 by 91.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rivalling 1670 I think this ink is very similiar to J. Herbin's 1670, but it doesn't have the annoying gold sheen the 1670 has when used in (very) broad nibs. The flow of Nikita is marvellous; I inked up the free Noodler's pen that came with it, and it wrote brilliantly straight away. In fact, the ink flow was a little too good at times: if the pen is moved a little too rapidly (in a waving motion, I mean), drops of ink fly out. I actually think that's kind of charming (it really was not a problem when writing normally); just be a little careful around official documents. This ink is worth getting for the free Noodler's pen alone, by the way!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Color, Poor Performer For it's intended purpose, "Slightly acidic and a conventional ink, it is a fine writer for Noodler's brush pens, flex Noodler's pens, and Noodler's 'nib creaper' ink ball piston fillers," it's great. However, I had serious reservations about putting this in any quality fountain pen. Since it's slightly acidic, I was afraid to load in a quality pen. That said, I tried anyway. Feathering is medium, not terrible. Bleed-through is awful. It goes through even the best papers. If you're drawing with it, it's great. Not an everyday writer. I do enjoy the color, so I switched to either Nikita or Fox. They are similar, but without the bleed (pun intended).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice red, nice pen This is my kind of red--deep, but not burgundy, vivid, but not eye-searing. Blood red comes to mind. It's a nice color on my Moleskine pocket book that stays in my purse, and a rustier red on cheap copy paper, but still nice. No orange to it, not much blue, just RED. I'm especially enjoying the free pen, (mine is a Noodler's nib creaper). To me, it was worth the price of the bottle. Feels good in the hand, and writes with a nice fine point, very smoothly. It's small, which works with my hands, but probably wouldn't work for someone with larger hands. I might have to buy more of this ink to get another pen and give the ink to a teacher I know that loves to use red in her fountain pens!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best quality red ink--wonderful pen too! Taking full advantage of every opportunity to use a red ink, I can't think of a better ink to use. This is absolutely my favorite non-traditional ink in my collection, and the pen it comes with is absolutely among my favorites as well. I personally have studied Communist propaganda posters and work, and this red ink has saturation hues that can flex from that exact slightly orange hue to a very solid red, depending on the pressure. On the cheapest paper I have there is feathering and bleed through, but it behaves better than most liquid inks do in that capacity. And while I sort of hate bringing up the free pen in full review, I personally wish this eyedropper one would be made available. If it's given for free with bottles of ink it must not be the most expensive pen to produce, and I personally think it behaves among the best from the brand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not too impressed Written with pointed pen on Clairefontaine paper. I found this ink to be very similar to Private Reserve's Dakota Red. I thought this red had an orange/brown tint to it and was a bit light when on paper. It may work well in combination with other colors, but I would choose another red over this one for most uses. Performance wise, it flows well, stays crisp, a little lite on the shading and doesn't seem to feather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color and great pen. This is an interesting red. I'm actually using it in a Waterman 52V semiflex nib. It has some interesting effects with that pen. Also love the free pen that came with the ink, not sure what it is, it's not the remade preppy, but bettter. It has a fine/very fine nib, which I enjoy, and writes as smooth as butter. Great choice with both pen and ink.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the ink, challenged with the pen Each transaction I've had with the Goulet Pen company has been wonderful! I've only had two so far, but I look forward to many more in the future. I think it's such a cool touch how each invoice comes with a little handwritten note from Brian. The ink is a beautiful shade of red. I've had some trouble with the free pen that came with the ink-so I've been fiddling around with different nib adjustments. I really appreciate that the Goulets have youtube tutorials demonstrating how to disassemble and adjust the Noodler's pens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must in your red ink collection This ink writes a bit on the wet side, so might be not very suitable on certain cheaper paper as I notice the ink will feather. I love the big bottle (coz I can use for very long time^^) and the red is just perfect to do marking.
