Noodler's Black Swan in Australian Roses - Ink Review

Update 25 August, 2014

The most recent batch of ink reviews is now complete, and the best performers proved to be Noodler’s La Couleur Royale and Noodler’s Tiananmen. These will definitely form part of my rotation in the future.

The next batch of reviews should start in a week or two’s time.

I have also created a new set of pages showing my reviews as alphabetical lists for ease of reference. The Reviews page is accessible through the menu. There are also child pages which list just the Ink Reviews and Pen Reviews. More will be added when I start to carry out different types of reviews.

I’ve not been able to find out what “Specialty” actually means, but the inks from this series I’ve reviewed so far (Ottoman Azure, Ottoman Rose and La Couleur Royale) have all had attractive colours and been good performers.
