So, I met John and Carol (of Luxury Brands USA) at the DC Pen Show, and they very graciously sent me a couple of inks to review. The first one is this Noodler's ink that I hadn't heard of previously. That might seem surprising unless you consider the sheer number of inks that Nathan at Noodler's creates. Is "gazillion" a real number? I kinda hope so.
Dostoyevsky is a light blue ink that is really close to being a turquoise, I think. It flows just fine, doesn't dry out in the nib, and the color is interesting. It's just a little too light for me, I think. If it were more saturated I might be all over it.
If the written parts were more like the ink smear, I'd really like this one, I think. It looks more complicated there then it does from the nib.
You'll see that it looks different from the Lamy nib than it does from the Ondoro's nib. I think the Lamy had some other ink in there, and it contaminated that writing sample. The rest of the review was written with the Ondoro.
Why not show it again? This seems to be how it looks best.

Disclaimer: This ink was sent to me as a "press sample" by Luxury Brands USA. They distribute Noodler's ink, but they don't sell it to the public (as far as I know). No
