Noodler's Pecan Ink

This ink is a rich, bright color. It is on the wet side, so for me this suggests using this ink with more absorbent paper and smaller nibs. It could also be a good candidate for brushwork.

Color Not As Expected

The qualities of the ink are nice - it writes well, has the sliiightest shading, haven't personally checked how waterproof, is plenty wet in my 1.1 stub - but boy is the color not at all what I expected. I don't know if I got a weird batch, or a mislabeled bottle. My "pecan" is more like pumpkin. It is very, very orange. A gorgeous color, but not what I go to for a whole page of script. It is more of a title/theme color to me, and therefore, I will never use up the whole bottle, and would not have purchased it. I was looking for a sepia-like brown, maybe with a bit of orange tint to it. Instead I got...pumpkin orange. Seems not to match the pictures in reviews here, so I'm stumped.

Fluctuates between Orange and Brown

I expected to love this ink (I love brown ink!), but don't. Sometimes it comes out from my pen bright orange; sometimes it is the brown I expect. Sometimes in a single paragraph (if I pause while writing lines), it fluctuates between orange and brown. A helpful Goulet staff member suggested shaking up the ink before I load the pen, which helped, but now it's back to it's orange-brown thing within my pen barrel. I think the ink must settle, even once it is inside my pen. I don't mind orange (actually, I like orange!); but I don't like the variability in color. I will be looking for a different brown.

My all time favorite ink

I've been using Kiowa Pecan for years! I mean YEARS! It is my favorite ink of all time! I love the color. It reminds me of a vintage document with the ink that has turned a warm brownish hue. It is a joy to write with, it flows freely in any pen in which I use it, and they all seem to glide across the paper. I can't imagine a time when I will ever be without at least two bottles of Noodlers Kiowa Pecan in my pen cabinet at all times! Johnny

The Perfect Brown!

Exactly why I was looking for in a brown ink. I love the shading I can accomplish with this ink. I've been writing extensively with this ink in my TWISBI 580 and am impressed with the ink flow and paper absorption.

FAQs about Bottled Ink

Which pens can accept this ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Any of these fountain pens will work with bottled ink. Typically, as long as the pen can be filled with a converter, has a built-in filling mechanism like a piston, or can be eyedropper-filled, it can accept bottled ink.

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

You can learn more in our blog: How to Write with Shimmering Ink.

My ink smells funny, is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Generally yes! Ink does not smell good- it usually has a chemical smell, along with other scents such as sulfur, rubber, chemicals or even paint. However, as long as you’re not seeing anything floating in the ink, it should be safe to use.

It’s cold and my ink froze; is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes, frozen ink will not hurt your pen (after it’s thawed of course!) The issue with ink freezing is primarily a concern because certain glass bottles could break as the water-based ink expands, and then you’d have a mess!
