When I asked my husband to order Noodler�s Navy, I had no idea that he was ordering my all time favorite Noodler�s ink. I absolutely loved this ink from the very minute I put it in my pen and started writing with it. In order to test the ink, I have been using my Sheaffer Targa with an extra-fine nib, which is the pen I normally use for writing. The first thing I�ve noticed is how beautifully the ink has been behaving. Even though I didn�t use any special fountain pen paper, just regular notes paper, the ink did not feather AT ALL and let the pen maintain a consistently smooth and even extra-fine line all the time I was writing (which haven�t been the case with Noodler�s X-feather ink, so I certainly did not expect Noodler�s Navy to be any better). The second positive feature of this ink is that it dries very fast and leaves no chance for smearing. It dries in about 1-2 seconds after being put on paper, which is a blessing! And finally, I am absolutely in love with the color of this ink, which to me looks more like a pleasant and mellow teal blue rather than navy. From now on, this is my favorite Noodler�s ink and it�s not leaving my desk or my pen�s cartridge.
