Ink Review #777: Noodler's Turquoise


For my birthday this year, my mom bought me a bottle of Noodler’s Turquoise. I love teal inks, so I was hopeful this would be a good one.


The color:

Turqoise is between blue and green, a bit more on the green side. I’d call it a greenish-teal.



In large swabs the ink looks more blue.


Writing samples:

Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.

Dry time: 20 seconds

Water resistance: Low

Feathering: None

Show through: Medium

Bleeding: None

Other properties: medium shading, tiny sheen, and no shimmer. The sheen is only visible in large swabs on Tomoe River paper.

On Staples 24 lb copy paper the ink feathered in all nib sizes and had a little bit of bleeding.

Comparison Swabs:

Longer Writing:


I used a Pelikan M805 Ocean Swirl with a broad nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a wet flow.

Overall, out of all the Noodler’s inks I’ve tried, I think this one is the most well-behaved. It’s a great color, has a nice wet flow and has an average dry time.
