Color: Apache Sunset
This ink's shading is magnificent. It truly reminds you of a sunset. The shaded areas go from a deep yellow to a glorious orange. VERY good in a flex pen. And well behaved to boot. Highly recommended. I'll upload a photo.

Color: Eel Polar Black
This ink is as good as Noodler's "standard" Black, with one trade-off: instead of being perfect on bad paper, this one stays liquid far below the freezing point of water. This one is also designed to safely condition and lubricate the gaskets of permanent-piston pens.

This one is not good for two-sided writing on bad paper, but just remember that almost all fountain pen inks of any color are not good for two-sided writing on bad paper either.

This one, like Noodler's "standard" Black, is safe for writing checks and signing valuable or important documents. One behavior you might notice, if your pen's nib is an exposed metal surface (not covered with colored enamel), is that Polar 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.

Color: Eel Polar Black
When used in a Lamy Safari Fine and Extra Fine point pen, there was very inconsistent ink flow. Ink simply did not feed well at all. If you're using these pens, get Noodler's non-Polar Bulletproof black instead. It'll save you the hassle.

Color: Zhivago Verified Purchase
This is the first time I've used ink from a bottle, as opposed to an ink cartridge.

I'm trying it in a Waterman Hemisphere fine-point fountain pen.

So far, I've found the ink has a reasonably fast drying time, and produces a crisp, thin line even on the cheap copy paper they use around here. (My old ink would blot out into broad, fuzzy lines immediately upon contact with the paper ... enough so that what I wrote was unreadable half of the time. My handwriting accounts for the other half...)

It stays neatly in the piston-type ink cartridge converter I'm using.

Color is nominally black, although - as stated in the manufacturer's description - in the right lighting there's a dark green sheen to it. It's not unpleasant; in fact, it gives the ink a somewhat dated, more elegant appearance than a "plain" flat black would be, in my opinion, and would certainly be a distinguishing feature if you use your fountain pen to sign checks.

Color: Black Eel Verified Purchase
I loaded three pens with the Black Eel. My collection isn't nearly as extensive as many people's, so I chose an assortment; a new Scheaffer Agio (medium), a 20-some year old Montblanc Meisterstruck (medium) and a fairly older Parker 21 (fine) in need of restoration. I also loaded it into a couple cheaper models (all fine) I have around, a Wearever, etc., just to see how it worked.

I performed the tests on Hammermill 20lb great white copy, on some random archival paper I had around, on 3x5 index cards and on standard legal pad paper.

The color is, as far as I could discern, the exact same as the regular black. Side by side under natural and flourescent light yielded the same darkness and opacity.

Indeed, in the very fine steel nib which was in need of restoration, the ink seemed to lubricate a bit better than the standard ink. Enough to make a significant difference, probably not. With the better flowing ink I feel I held the pen a bit lighter as well, and not being an accomplished scribe, that helped my technique so there were compounding factors.

When writing with the medium nib, the flow was like a stick of butter on a plate of glass. I liked the feel although at times it got a bit sloppy, and I wasn't properly forming the letters. Again, someone with superior penmanship would not have an issue with this.

Regardless, I didn't notice that much creep or feathering even with the cheaper paper. The fine nibs still had a tendency to scratch here and there, in particular when writing quickly (such as note taking) but it never dropped, spattered, blobbed or otherwise.

Drying time, water resistance, etc. all comparable to the standard black.

This is a great ink - lays down a nice line without feathering. As the previous reviewer mentioned, it's a black ink with a very subtle deep green undertone. Exactly what I was looking for - the green is very understated, and very pleasant. Thanks, Noodler's!

Color: Black Eel Verified Purchase
I was already a devotee of the regular Noodler's Black, and I wanted to try the lubricated "American Eel" variant. My first surprise was how much lighter in shade this stuff is. I was expecting the same coal-black shade as the non-Eel version. However, after seeing more comments from other people, I've begun to suspect it was my regular Noodler's Black that's the anomaly -- and also, that Noodler's ink simply has variations from one batch to the next that I'll have to learn to live with.

My second surprise is that this Black Eel ink doesn't seem to lubricate as much as the Blue Eel ink (which is not waterproof) that I have used before. Blue Eel was distinctly slick on the page. With Black Eel it's hard for me to discern any difference from the regular stuff.

I'm still a huge fan of Noodler's ink, and of Noodler's Black in particular, but I've got to say this particular "American Eel" was a bit of a let-down to me.
