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.
Proctor’s Ledge was one of Noodler’s LE Inks from limited materials made for New England pen show – Commonwealth in 2015. Proctor’s Ledge, and the illustrated bottle label, is a memorial to the 19 innocent victims of the Salem Witch Trials that were hanged at this particular site.
The ink is really wet and dark. It’s brown but in some pens and on some papers it can appear almost black. The ink is water resistant and fluoroscent. It behaves well. I wouldn’t mind owning a bottle of this one. Sadly it was LE ink so I’m going to enjoy the rest of the sample.
