There is a lot to say about the new Noodler’s ink, Park Red.

You may be curious about the significance of the floating balloons on the label, the fountain pens being shot at them — and exactly who it is shooting them. For the full story on the ink’s namesake, North Korean freedom fighter Park Sang Hak, we encourage you to check out the video from Noodler’s Ink founder Nathan Tardif.

We decided to ink up a few pens with this color to see what the properties were like. Here are some things we learned from our own experimentation:

  • Park Red is a standard, conventional fountain pen ink – it is not waterproof or bulletproof.
  • The ink can take a little extra time drying.
  • The ink does not emit any extra glow under a black light.

Noodler’s Park Red fountain pen ink is available at in a 3oz bottle for $12.50, and as a 2ml ink sample for $1.25. The images below were produced during our testing. We hope you enjoy them.
