Today's ink is Noodler's Ottoman Rose. I purchased my sample of ink from Anderson Pens. This is one of those inks that looks a little different on every paper.
Ottoman Rose is a deep magenta pink.
After three days the large swab and ink drops still haven't dried.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Feathering: Low-there was some feathering in the flex nib on Rhodia.
Show through: Medium
On 20 pound copy paper there was a little bit of feathering but other than that the ink behaved well.
Ink swabs for comparison, left to right (top to bottom for mobile RSS): Kaweco Ruby Red, Noodler's Ottoman Rose, and Diamine Deep Magenta. Click here to see the Noodler's inks together.
I used a fine Montegrappa Copper Mule on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a wet flow.
Overall, the color is nice, but it does have a few issues: some feathering and bleeding, as well as very long dry times on Tomoe River paper. If you love this color, I would suggest trying Monteverde Garnet (which I prefer) as well as Ottoman Rose. Give it a try, you might love it.
