Noodler’s Northstar Liberator

Noodler’s is one of the companies that don’t need any introductions. Nathan Tardiff is a legend and his work is well known by fountain pen and ink afficionados. Not everyone is crazy about Noodler’s inks but I enjoy most of the ones I’ve tried so far.

Northstar Liberator was one of three Noodler’s Inks from limited materials made for New England pen show – Commonwealth. The ink is 100% bulletproof and behaves pretty well – I appreciate the fact it doesn’t feather. The color can be vibrant while used in broad and wet pens but the result is rather boring for my taste. Maybe if you collect Noodler’s ink or need light water resistant blue this one will suit your needs / tastes. For me it’s an ink I’ll never use again.
