The ink flows smoothly and it cleans up very easily, too.

This is a very black ink that doesn't bleed through or feather on average paper (even below average paper really).

I have been using this ink in my Lamy Refill Converter (LZ24) in the Lamy Safari Fountain Pen - Charcoal - Fine.

I write with Noodler's Black (the brand's "standard" black ink) almost every day because I can't always choose the paper to write on. Noodler's Black can be used for two-sided writing on bad paper, even newsprint, which is rare among all the fountain pen inks in the world.

I also write with Noodler's Black because it's waterproof, forgery-proof, good-looking, and pleasantly smooth during writing. I confidently write checks with Noodler's Black, and it is safe for signing valuable or important documents too (when black is an acceptable color; ask your lawyer).

Please keep in mind that the Noodler's company carefully says which of the brand's colors are waterproof and which are not. In my experience Noodler's Black is by far the best Noodler's color for writing on both sides of bad paper.

One behavior you might notice, if your pen's nib is an exposed metal surface (not covered with colored enamel), is that Noodler's (standard) Black spreads itself over exposed metal surfaces. This "nib creep" is harmless behavior because the ink doesn't run down onto the grip area. Wiping the ink off the nib is only temporary; more ink will soon spread to replace what you wiped off. Again, this is harmless behavior and a very small price to pay for the security of your marks, signatures and important handwritten texts.

[For the record, I used this ink with the Cross Century II Medalist medium-nib fountain pen.]

Like others have said, this ink has some impressive qualities.

As soon as I opened the bottle (the bottle is glass, and attractive - like the bottles of old), I noticed that it was full to the very brim. While subjective looks have nothing to do with the quantity of ink one actually gets, it's helpful in getting the nib in deep enough not to pull up air, but not so deep that it's overly dirtied.

This ink wipes off of solid surfaces easily - it's much easier to clean off than the Higgins Fountain Pen India I used before. It also doesn't seem to cause "nib goo" on the underside of the nib - which was a regular occurrence with the aforementioned Higgins, particularly when drawing (I draw as well as write).

I decided to see exactly how waterproof this stuff is. While it wasn't a scientific test by any stretch of the imagination, I licked my finger, and rubbed over a completely blackened portion of a sketch I did - and none ended up on my fingertip. The drawing showed no effect, either.

The pen writes more smoothly than before, as well as starting more quickly after pauses with the cap removed.

All-in-all, I think I'm sold on this stuff from now on. =:o)

I just bought my first fountain pen a few months ago, Lamy Safari Charcoal Fountain Pen - Charcoal, Medium Nib L17M bought the converter for it, Lamy Safari Converter Z24 and proceeded to fill it with this fine Noodler's black "bulletproof" ink. I do a majority of my writing in Moleskine journals, Moleskine Large Ruled Notebook and while the paper can sometimes be inconsistent when accepting fountain pen ink, (bleeding & feathering) I have not have had any problems with this particular ink. I also have a bottle of Noodler's Le Colour Royale (a dark purplish blue) and unfortunately, that particular color does bleed & feather slightly in the same Moleskine. Le Colour Royale is not Bulletproof/waterproof, and I wonder if that's the difference.

Of note, there are many journals that can handle fountain pen ink with no bleeding at all, such as Clairfontaine and Miguel Rius. I'm just partial to the Moleskines.

I love using the Black Noodler's ink for doing pen & wash watercolor art.

I think this is a reasonably priced product, and I'm quite pleased that it's made in the USA, which I try to buy as often as possible.

Noodler's black is an excellent product that has worked perfectly for me in a wide variety of pens. It's not the blackest black on the market (Noodler's Borealis Black is the blackest of the 25+ black inks I've tried), but standard Noodler's black is black enough, and it's amazingly tenacious once it's dried on paper.

I've put samples under a faucet for fifteen minutes with hot water pouring over them, soaked them in concentrated bleach solutions overnight, hit them with every conceivable cleaner from carpet cleaner to dry cleaning fluid, and the writing's still there. Noodler's black bonds with paper using cellulose-reactive dyes, and that bond is extremely strong.

When using a wet pen, sometimes extra ink is laid down on the paper. The ink that bonds with the cellulose is permanent, but any extra ink that's laying on top is not. Water will rinse away the excess ink, but the writing will be as strong and as solid as when it was first written.

I've found Noodler's black very easy to rinse out of my pens and off of my skin. Because the ink has to bond with cellulose to become permanent, it rinses very easily compared to other inks labeled as "permanent". It will bond with the cellulose in cotton fabric, so be careful not to spill it on cotton clothes. Pour it on synthetic fabrics, though, and it comes right out. I had a small spill on my carpet, and I cleaned it up with paper towels and water, without leaving any stain behind. Additionally, Noodler's black is pH neutral, so it won't eat through some metals the way acidic inks can.

I've been using Noodler's black for years, and it's performed flawlessly as I've worked my way through multiple bottles.
