The best blue color that I have had

I really liked the "deep sky bluish" (translated word from word from Bengali) color of this ink. It looks really amazing and very consistent across different paper types (I use high end notebooks to copy papers).

Too permanent!!

I got this ink in a sampler of the Eel line. This one is beautiful and has the wet flow I wanted, but becomes bullet-proofs my hands!I've tried Lava soap which has proved best on all other ink, as well as Goop and other recommended cleaners. I'm still scrubbing

Beautiful Color

I was looking for a turquoise that was the right balance of blue and green for my taste. This one is very good, leaning more toward blue. It flows well and is well behaved. It has fairly good saturation for a turquoise. Nothing like a dark ink, but not very pale. It leaves a nice legible line.

Great Service

I ordered this product for someone else, but they love it and have used Noodler's Ink for years. The web-site was easy to use and the shipping was super fast. Great shopping experience, thank you.

Love it!

This was the first Noodler's Eel ink I have ever tried. I have been reading about the eel inks for a while and finally took the plunge. Since turquoise is my favorite color I started with this one. It makes my turquoise Delta Titanio just glide across the page!

FAQ about Ink Samples

How do I fill my fountain pen from an ink sample vial? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It depends on the fountain pen's filling mechanism.

Check out our blog post on How to Fill a Fountain Pen from an Ink Sample Vial.

How much writing can I do with 2ml of ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It really depends on how big or small you write, and the nib size you’re using. We find that usually you can get 2 good fills for a typical converter with our Ink samples, or one good fill with a piston-filling pen. How much writing depends on you more than anything else, so we recommend experimenting with different nib sizes to find what works best for you. 

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.
