Far out, dude. Borealis Black
, dressed in a trippy, colorful Noodler's artwork, is unlike the "standard" bulletproof black
. Borealis is dark, real dark. According to Noodler's website, the formula is based on 1950's ink that is perfect for artists, calligraphers and people who use flex nib pens. It is billed as the "Blackest of the conventional Blacks."
True, this Borealis Black is very black. Bulletproof Black seems much less saturated by comparison. Borealis flows smooth and wet with a bit of bleedthrough visible. The downside to the ink is that it is not "bulletproof," or fraud resistant. It can be removed with bleach, some carpet cleaners and laundry detergents.
The ink is available in a 3 ounce bottle (shown above) and a 4.5 ounce eyedropper bottle
, complete with a free fountain pen. I promise, more spring-colored inks will make their way onto the blog soon!
