Plymouth Wilderness – Noodler’s LE Ink

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.

Plymouth Wilderness was one of Noodler’s LE Inks from limited materials made for New England pen show – Commonwealth in 2015. The ink is fairly water resistant but it misbehaves in intolerable way – the feathering is strong, when you write with broader pens bleedthrough can be significant even on Rhodia. Basically I guess this ink might be of some use to those who use fibne, dry pens. If however you, like me, enjoy wet and broad nibs Plymouth Wilderness will probably turn out a waste of time. I would say in terms of behavio it’s worst Noodler’s ink I’ve tried so far.
