Carmine Suffragist – Noodler’s

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.

Carmine Suffragist was one of LE inks made for Commonwealth Pen Show in 2016. It can look acceptable on some papers if you enjoy pinks. Sadly this is a bad ink. It feathers on most papers, even on Oxford Optic paper, and for me it’s a no go. Maybe you can use this ink for artwork? I just can’t get it – all the recent Noodler’s inks I tried feather like crazy. It’s disturbing.

PS: On Goulet’s site there’s information it’s Goulet’s exclusive ink. Maybe someone more knowledgeabole could tell if it was Commonwealth LE or Noodler’s exclusive or both?
