ENHANCEMENT OPTIONS
3oz (90ml) glass bottle of Noodler's Polar Black fountain pen ink. Noodler's inks are handcrafted, so there may be slight color variations from batch to batch.

The Noodler's Polar range of inks has been especially formulated to keep fountain pens flowing smoothly under below zero weather conditions. As denoted by the polar bear and catfish on the label for these inks, the polar inks can handle the coldest conditions in North America and Scandinavia. The bottle can be left in the mailbox on cold mornings without fear of the contents freezing solid and bursting the glass.

The polar range of inks are also "eternal" (in Noodler's Ink terminology). Noodler's eternal inks are water, bleach and light proof. They are highly resistant to fraud due to its permanent qualities. Ideal for professionals and artists who need their lines to be "bulletproof".

Excellent Ink Doesn't Run

I live and work on a sail boat so having a bulletproof ink that won't run when wet that I can fill out log books with is a godsend. No more filling out the logbook or taking notes with smudgy ball points for me. Plus the Polar Ink's temperature range means the ink can go anywhere the boat can without me having to worry about it freezing or not working.

Noodlers Polar Black

It met my expectations. I leave a fountain pen in my car and it has reached 22 degrees F so far this winter. The pen with this ink worked fine. The ink does feather more than others but I don't write important documents in my car and I don't care.

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!

What is your return policy for bottled ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B
