Ink Drop: Mysterious March Reveal...Kung Te-cheng and Whaleman's Sepia Revived!


Back in January, we asked you what you wanted to have for March's Ink Drop, and we called it 'Mysterious March'. The idea was that you would get to vote for the colors you wanted for March's Drop! The votes came in, and we brought you what you wanted (with a couple of surprises!). Every voter was allowed 5 selections, just like an Ink Drop would have. With a list of just under 300 inks to choose from, we were a little worried about having something like a 30-way tie, but that was not the case. We compiled them all and found that there were some very clear front-runners.

Here are the top 10 inks chosen, with the percentage representing how many people out of everyone who voted selected that particular ink:

23% - Noodler's Baystate Blue
11% - J. Herbin Rouge Hematite (1670)
11% - Noodler's Black Swan in Australian Roses
10% - Diamine Red Dragon          
9% - Caran d’Ache Saffron
9% - Diamine Oxblood
8% - Noodler’s Blue Ghost
8% - Caran d’Ache Grand Canyon
8% - Caran d’Ache Storm
8% - Caran d’Ache Caribbean Sea


Here are the inks we selected for Mysterious March:


#1 – Noodler’s Baystate Blue

Baystate Blue stole an overwhelming 23% of the vote – nothing else came even close! This is probably one of Noodler’s most controversial inks, mainly due to the propagation of longstanding myths and rumors about its ‘safety’. Rest assured, we wouldn’t have chosen it unless we thought it was safe to use! We highly recommend thoroughly and frequently cleaning any pens you use with this ink, and do not mix it with other inks. It is suitable to mix with the other Noodler's Baystate inks (Cape Cod Cranberry and Concord Grape).  

The ink is prone to staining some pens, so if you're uncomfortable using it in a particularly valuable or irreplaceable pen, just don't. Mostly though, it's just a little harder than average to clean. It's very rare this ink causes any permanent damage to a pen (it will stain vintage pen sacs though). If you find it particularly hard to clean out of your pen, try using a 10% ammonia in water solution and it should cut through it. This ink is one that gets a lot of talk because of it's 'danger', but once you see the vibrant color on the paper, we think you’ll see why many people think the risk of staining is worth it. Personally, Rachel and I both love it! Baystate Blue is waterproof, and dries quite fast. It performs well on a variety of papers. If you want to see Nathan demonstrate his ink, click here to go see his video on it.


#2 – J. Herbin Rouge Hematite (1670 Anniversary Ink)

Many of you have been asking us to include this one for a while, but we couldn’t get enough of it until now. We were SOOOOO close to not getting this ink in time to use for the Drop, you don't even know! This one placed second in our poll behind Baystate Blue, with 11% of the vote. 1670 was introduced in 2010 to celebrate J. Herbin’s 340th anniversary, and was so popular that it’s continuing to be made through 2011 and hopefully beyond. This is one of J. Herbin’s more saturated colors, and the bottle is a special design J. Herbin uses only for this ink.

#3 – Diamine Red Dragon           
      
This is one of the ten new inks that Diamine introduced last year and quickly became a big hit. It garnered 10% of the votes in the poll. It came in to the US late last year, and was out of stock from the sole Diamine distributor for about 2 months at the end of 2010, right around Christmastime, it was crazy frustrating! Initial reviews of it were really good but availability of it has been spotty. We're happy to finally get a good stock of it and formally introduce it to our members. Red Dragon is a really good solid red color and behaves well. Despite the fact it's very close in color to 1670, it acts quite differently. It is a flat color, which contrasts the intense shading of its Herbin counterpart.

#4 – Noodler’s Kung Te-Cheng

What? This wasn't even a choice during the vote!!

We know! This ink has been all but unavailable for months, and the buzz and anticipation about bringing this ink back in threads like this one on Fountain Pen Network gave us an indication it's an ink that a lot of you would love to try, even though it wasn't on our poll back in January. We didn't know it would even be available to us until about 2 weeks before the Drop landed, so we kept it a secret and thought it would be a great way to reintroduce the ink to the writing community by putting it in the hands (and pens) of Ink Drop members. We have been inquiring about getting this ink since the day we started carrying Noodler's, and we're happy to finally announce we're going to be an exclusive retailer of this ink, and that it's going to be available ongoing in a 4.5 ounce bottle with a brush pen, and eyedropper Preppy pen (plus the additional rollerball tip). 

This bulletproof ink is an attempt to replicate the color, depth, behavior, properties, and general characteristics of the first royal ink of ancient China. It's a smooth-flowing ink, with a medium flow. As with the Baystate Blue, we do advise that you take caution when choosing what pen to use with this ink.

#5 – Noodler’s Manjiro Nakahama Whaleman’s Sepia

This is another color that was previously unavailable that we have now acquired! This is also the first time that this ink is offered in a 4.5oz bottle with free pens (2.5 pens, just like Baystate Blue and Kung Te-Cheng 4.5 ounce). Whaleman’s Sepia is modeled after the whaler’s logbook ink of the 1840s. It starts out as a deep sepia red-brown color, but will turn to red and then purple when bleach is applied.  This ink is also bulletproof. Nathan did a really great video explaining all of the complex meaning behind the development of this ink, click here to go see it.


Honorable Mentions- Black Swan in Australian Roses, Caran d'Ache Saffron

These two inks were contenders for the top 5. Some of you may be wondering why we didn't simply choose the top five that were voted. The reason is, they simply weren't available.

Black Swan in particular would have been great to use, but was completely unavailable for about 5 weeks leading up to the drop. It finally came in to us on March 1st, go figure! Our Caran d'Ache distributor only had 7 bottles of Saffron on hand, which is only enough ink to fulfill around 100 member's Ink Drops, and with over 250 members now it just wasn't going to work. Even with a month an a half planning for March's Ink Drop wasn't enough time to get it.

So with Black Swan and Saffron out of contention, Oxblood was next in line. Going strictly 'by the votes' like this, there would have been 3 very similar looking reds: 1670, Red Dragon, and Oxblood. We felt a bit encumbered by this, but wanted to stick to the voters' choice. We were preparing Oxblood and Blue Ghost (the next two inks in line), but then the opportunity came up for us to include Kung Te-cheng and Whaleman's Sepia as a surprise and we jumped on it. We chose the top 3 inks voted in order of their availability, and the 4th and 5th were the two 'born-again' Noodler's exclusive inks. We went by our gut instinct that Kung Te-cheng and Whaleman's Sepia as surprise 'guest stars' would be more exciting than Oxblood and Blue Ghost. We'll leave it up to you to tell us if we made the right choice!

New GPC Swag, With A Dash of Drama

We also added in our new Goulet Pens swag, which includes the infamous Ink Drop sticker you've seen before, new business cards, a new GPC sticker and a greatly improved bookmark. We got a lot of great feedback about changes to make with the bookmark, and we listened! It's now 1.5" x 7" (it was previously 2" x 8"), with rounded corners and a matte finish. We wanted to create a beautiful and functional bookmark and we nailed it (so we hope)!

What was really fun about the swag is that we didn't get it in until 2pm on March 1st. We had already done up all of the Ink Drops and shipping labels ahead of time, and we had a delivery confirmation that the swag was coming. We were almost literally staring at the clock as the minutes ticked by waiting for it to arrive!! Once it showed up, it was 'all hands on deck' to stuff all of the Ink Drops with stickers and bookmarks. My aunt who had good intentions of bringing us lunch that day soon found herself stuffing envelopes with the rest of us as we frantically tried to beat the clock so we could get all of our pre-labeled packages to the Post Office before it closed at 5pm! It was quite hectic, but in a really fun, almost surreal kind of way! That's just one insight into the kind of fun and drama that goes into the daily operations of our business ;)

Your Thoughts

This month's theme was by far the toughest for us to coordinate from any of the Drops we've done before. I'm really hoping it ends up being worth it! What do you think?

  1. Yippee! I loved it! I've been wanting to try Noodlers XYZ Whalemans' Sepia. I love looking at all the Daily Arsenal flickr photos that have been using it. Maybe if I get a bottle my handwriting will be as beautiful as FPN's Hdoug?
    The infamous BSB is one that I've been meaning to try as well. I hope it is as gorgeous as everyone says. And KTC is one that I have already but haven't put in a real pen. I've been nervous but since I can't stand the Preppy, I'm just gonna go for it.

  2. Love it, my second Ink Drop. Being something of a history nut, I am enjoying the inks that replicate historical colors, now I have three. Whalemans'Sepia, Kung Te-Cheng and Rouge Hematite. Love the BSB color, though a bit intimidated by it as I am an incurable klutz. (Think I am needing a few more pens.) All the colors work beautifully with glass pens, just the right consistancy. The Kung Te-Cheng does stick to the glass pens and needs a bit of rubbing to get it off.

  3. @Bridgett, I'm glad you like it! I knew there was a risk of a lot of people already having some of these inks, especially because they're the popular ones that were chosen. But with two surprise inks that were not readily available for at least the last 6 months, we figured there was a good chance to please as many members as possible :)

  4. @Linda, if you like 'historical' inks, check out the Noodler's V-mail series inks too, which include North African Violet, Midway Blue, Operation Overlord Orange, Mandalay Maroon, G.I. Green, Rabaul Red, and Burma Road Brown. They are inks that Nathan replicated based off of old World War II era inks. Also, Dark Matter is a replica of the ink used specially for the Manhattan Project. The Baystates are also historically significant, too. Nathan is big into replica inks!

  5. I'm working my way through the ink drop, but so far my results have been surprising. I had been thinking about picking up a bottle of BSB but after trying it I'm going to pass. The color isn't as striking and different as I had imagined and it was a huge pain to get out of my Noodler's demonstrator. As a matter of fact, there is still some inks in the tool marks that isn't going to come out.

    However, I was blown away by Herbin's 1670 ink. It's absolutely lovely! The slow drying time doesn't bother me, but I was amazed at how little it feathers. I wrote with it on an index card, which tend to feather like crazy for me. There was no noticeable feathering at all.

    ReplyDelete
  6. @Groat, to each his own! This is exactly what the Drop is all about, to expand your ink experience, whether good or bad. I'm glad you're liking the 1670, it's really a wonderful ink with a well-deserved following.

    ReplyDelete
  7. This is my favorite Ink Drop yet. The BSB and Red Dragon were two colors I've been dying to try. I was totally floored by the surprise Noodler's inks as well. I'm looking for every excuse to use up what's in my pens now, so I can ink up all these colors. I already have a bottle of 1670, so I gave the sample to a friend I recently introduced to the world of fountain pens and the GPC. Well done, Brian and Rachel.

  8. Oh, and the new bookmarks are awesome. :)

  9. @Nathaniel, yay!! We were going for the element of surprise :) I'm so glad you like everything!

  10. Thanks so much for the two inks made of "unobtanium!" And it's a clear sign that I spend too much money on ink - I have seven of the top ten voted for already, including the three in the Drop. Will probably end up sharing those with others, which is also fun! The Kung Te-Cheng looks fabulous, just trying to figure out what to put it in. We lost a pen to BSB a couple of years ago (it still worked but got *really* stained) so I'm a little leery. I do have a couple of metal and black resin pens that will probably be okay though.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Stoked to hear Kung Te-Cheng and Manjiro Nakahama Whaleman’s Sepia are coming back. I bought a bottle of each when they first hit the market and am very impressed.

    Kung Te-Cheng has beautifully subtle shading and looks great with the brush pen from the Baystate Blue 4.5oz bottles. I've never seen an ink like it and probably never will, may be stocking up since it's available again.

    Manjiro Nakahama Whaleman’s Sepia is a fascinating ink. Beautiful dark sepia color on the page that washes to red with bleach and ages to lavender (if you don't want to wait, watch the washout pattern in the sink as you clean up).
    This is a dry writing ink that can stain a bit. Works great with the Preppy 03 and my Noodler's Ebonite Eyedropper. Nathan suggests that nibs with a deep fissure are best and that matches my experience.

    Looking forward to seeing these back on the market!

  12. @SheilaM, I knew that some of the more popular inks risked overlapping existing ones in your (and others') collection. That's how the votes fell in place! It does show you have good taste though ;) I'm sorry about your previous pen with BSB...when you say 'lost it' to BSB, what happened? Nathan recommends cleaning stained pens with an ammonia/water solution. Often the pen isn't stained permanently, it just needs an extra 'oomf' to get the ink out.

    @Jason, Kung Te-cheng is particularly exciting. Some people have commented on FPN about it not being a very 'exciting' purple, but I don't think they understand that there really just aren't any waterproof purples out there. Noodler's La Reine Mauve is (it's an eternal ink, so it's resistant to water, bleach, UV light, etc), and North African Violet is pretty water resistant, but that's about it. KTC is the real deal, and though it's not a vibrant in-your-face purple, it looks really nice written on a full page.

    Nathan does give warning right on the bottle about using it in a pen other than the Preppy and brush pen that comes with it, so fair warning must be given if you venture outside of that. I can say it seems to 'stick' a bit to the inside of pens, but if you have a Preppy or something that you dedicate to this ink, it should work just fine without problems.

    We're glad to be offering these inks. They were exclusive inks to a company that no longer carries them, and the future of these inks was undetermined for at least the last 6 months. But now they have a future with us and we hope to be able to offer them to you for a long, long time :)

  13. @Brian, it was a Lamy Safari, not a good choice in retrospect since they seem to be made of rather soft plastic. We did the water and ammonia soak and got some of it out but not all. Joe ended up giving the pen away a while ago to someone who didn't mind the stain. I'm not saying BSB is bad, just echoing others' warning of using a bit of caution in what you put it in. (Cuz we didn't, obviously!) Cleaning is important too. I personally think it's a gorgeous color and have been looking through the pens for good choices to use; haven't used it in a while and I'm looking forward to playing with it!

    I like your and Jason's suggestions on pens to use with the Sepia too...hmm, more shopping...darn! :)

    The other colors you chose are some of our current faves too. All in all, a great Drop this time!

    ReplyDelete
  14. @Sheila, I'm wondering if perhaps Lamy has changed their plastic since then? I know the original 'melting' of a pen feed that started all of the rumors about BSB's danger was in a Lamy. As it turned out, it was an issue with the feeds Lamy was using, and there were people who experienced problems with melting feeds with other brands besides Noodler's I wasn't in the pen world at the time all this was going on, but I'm told that what caused the problem was that Lamy was using a feed made out of a material called Casein, which is not an idea material for a nib feed. I have to wonder if the plastic they've used in their pens have changed in recent years to resist this type of staining, as I've heard of inks other than BSB being problems as well. Does anyone have any insight to this?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I make casein plastic all the time (I have some sitting near me drying right now). The kind which Lamy was using would likely be casein-formaldehyde which is stiffer than plain casein but just as brittle. Penmakers who turn casein will know that, although pleasing to the touch, the material is hydroscopic (absorbs water) and can expand/contract, warp and stain. It's an amazing material but is definitely not for nib feeds. My Aurora Blue (which is not waterproof at all) would easily dissolve my casein and cause casein-formaldehyde to wilt.

    I understand BSB can stain and that may cause some complaints, but if all this hullabaloo is because of casein feeds, it's unfortunate that Noodler's was given the blame.

    ReplyDelete
  16. @Jesse, from what I understand, casein feeds were used in certain Lamys and that's what caused the 'melting' problem. It sounds like exactly what you've described here.

    There's actually a thread that came up recently on FPN called 'Noodler's Eats Pens?' where an unwitting newbie was told by their local pen shop that Noodler's ink destroys pens. Talk about a blanket statement, huh? You can see just from the responses that not only is that untrue, but veteran members of the forum are sick of hearing about these ridiculous rumors, to the point where KCAT (the Ink Thoughts subforum moderator) closed the thread. Here's the thread: http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php?/topic/187600-noodlers-eats-pens/

    Of particular interest is post #17, where physicsgirl describes what sounds like @Jesse's description of a casein meltdown, having never used Noodler's in the pen at all. She states she got a replacement Lamy and Noodler's has been running flawlessly through it ever since!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow, I surely didn't mean to stir things up here. We have several bottles of Noodler's inks and are happy with them all. If they were bad for pens, no one would buy them. I mention the issue we had with staining of the cap/body of the Lamy only as a reminder to use a bit of caution with BSB - which we obviously did not do when we chose that pen to run BSB in a couple of years ago. Just stating my experience and I hope no one takes it as anything more.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Love the surprise inks! I was really interested in trying the Kung Te-Cheng, but couldn't convince myself to buy a bottle when it was available. Ink drop gets me to try colors I never would have considered, and it's so much fun when the envelope arrives every month!

    BSB won't eat your pens, but it might stain them. Just make sure you clean the pen out really really good before putting a non-Baystate ink in it. Make sure you check behind your piston too if you use a piston filler, because ink can sneak behind it. I've used a Pelikan M205 Blue Demo with BSB for well over a year now and my pen is still alive.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've got the Kung Te-Chang in an Esterbrook J and really like it.
    As for staining,it's a black Esterbrook and inside is a black rubber sack,no worries.
    The infamous BSB is in my Noodler's ebonite.Nice bright color,the sack is stained by the Black Swan...so what?Now I'll see which stain wins.
    The Diamine Dragon Red is in a parker Vacumatic with somewhat darkened transparency so I don't worry too much about staining.It's a nice red but I like the 1670 better.
    The sepia I have only used with a dip pen.
    Overall,a fun mix of inks.
    Sometimes I feel sorry for the... xyz brand mega dollar modern pen folks.All this worry over something that should be fun.New kinds of ink to play with.Relax,get a few old Esties,they come apart easy for cleaning and resacking is soooo easy, or buy some new Noodler's pens or even preppys and go back to having fun.

    Thanks Brian and Rachel.

  20. I am very excited for this month's Ink Drop. I just signed up solely due to this month's selection. I really want to try the Whaleman's Sepia, Kung Te-Cheng, Red Dragon and the 1670 Rouge Hematite. I'm a little worried about the BSB staining, so I may not use that one. Regardless, the other 4 look like winners!

  21. I've been looking for Kung Te-Cheng since I read Seize the Dave's review back in July. Thanks!

  22. My problem with this month's Ink Drop is that I am losing sleep deciding which ones I *really* need to have.

    I had been wanting to try the Rouge Hematite and was thrilled to have a sample. And I've been curious about Red Dragon too - both live up to my expectations.

    I was not expecting to like BSB or the Kung Te-Cheng, and frankly never would have thought to try them on my own. And I had never heard of the Whaleman's Sepia. But after trying all of this month's samples, I want one of each!! Unfair!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love the colors of the March Drop! I'd wanted to try a sample of Baystate Blue for a while, but I held out just in case it ended up on the Voter's Choice month. ;) It's truly a fascinating ink. I wasn't too interested in blue inks (even though it's my favorite color, usually) because they seemed less interesting than reds and oranges and pinks and warm colors. Oh, how mistaken I was when I saw BSB.

    I guess Whaleman's Sepia is the only one that underwhelmed me, mostly because I'm not so fond of black and brown colors. Maybe someday I'll find "the one" -- like when the Sailor carbon black is in stock.

    ReplyDelete
  24. @Sheila, no worries! You didn't stir anything up. Controversy over BSB seems to just be part of the package ;) I think a healthy dose of cautious optimism is good for anyone looking to ink up BSB.

    @physicsgirl, I'm so glad you're liking the Ink Drop! The fun you're having is exactly why we do it every month :)

    @Hangglidernerd, you make some excellent points! What I like to say is that if anyone has a pen they don't want to 'risk' with an ink like BSB or KTC, simply use it in a different pen that isn't quite as valuable to them. After all, I think we can all assume we have multiple pens to use ;)

    @Thirdeye, great to hear! We try to make every month an awesome month, but this one we felt was particularly special!

    @John M., KTC hasn't been made for a while, but we're going to be stocking it regularly from now on. We're glad too, because a lot of folks were asking us about it, especially recently.

    @Karen, haha! Yes, there are plenty of folks striven with your same 'problem'!

    @Rhincodon, it was probably pretty obvious that BSB was going to be in the Drop. You weren't the only one waiting for it! I'm sorry Sepia was a disappointment. It'd actually been November since we did any brown, so it was probably time for it. We chose it more because of the fact it hadn't been available for a while.

    ReplyDelete
  25. This was my first ink drop and my anticipation was very high, but you easily left my highest hopes behind.

    Everyone rumoured BSB would be in it, so no surprise, but it is great to be able to try it out. This blue just jumps off the page!
    Rouge Hermatite: I have a bottle here, but this ink drop has probably more people who don't have it and it is nice that they now have the possibility to try it out themselves.
    Diamine Red Dragon: I have been dying to see this in real life. Thank you!
    Two Noodlers Specials: I didn't ever think of them, so you caught me (and most others I gather) completely by surprise. I never dreamed of being able to test them! Thank you so much!

    I can't begin to imagine the amount of work going into the ink drop. You can be assured of my everlasting gratitude.

  31. @Linda, if you like 'historical' inks, check out the Noodler's V-mail series inks too, which include North African Violet, Midway Blue, Operation Overlord Orange, Mandalay Maroon, G.I. Green, Rabaul Red, and Burma Road Brown. They are inks that Nathan replicated based off of old World War II era inks. Also, Dark Matter is a replica of the ink used specially for the Manhattan Project. The Baystates are also historically significant, too. Nathan is big into replica inks!

    So much comments. I like this post to comment too.
