Noodler’s Beaver is the last color we chose for the October 2010 Ink Drop. It was sort of a last-minute change, but we’re glad we chose it. It’s a nice solid brown color, leaning just a bit towards the red.
Noodler’s bottles are nothing unique, in fact they’re intentionally that way. They, like Private Reserve, put far more emphasis on cost effectiveness and ink performance than the design of the bottle, it’s simply to transport ink. They are 3-ounce bottles (about 89ml), some of the biggest out there. This gives a good ink economy with a 3-ounce bottle listing for $12.50. The neck is large, so it’s easy to fill big pens, and the bottles is also quite tall. The thing to watch out for is the bottles are filled to the brim, and that’s no joke.
Ink on Paper:
I tested the ink on 4 different premium papers, including a water test.
***I do make my living from selling ink like Noodler’s, so take that into account for this review. Though my main purpose for the review is not to sell ink, I’d be lying if I said I don’t hope for it as a consequence! I’m not paid at all to blog, so this review is a labor of love for me. I hope you enjoyed it.
