An exclusive collaboration between Goldspot Pens and Noodler's Ink, we proudly present a blue fountain pen ink so exceptional, it has been dubbed "Revolutionary." This medium-toned, shading blue ink flows easily and is water-resistant when it dries on the page. For more details and writing samples, check out our blog post on the Revolution Blue Ink. The bottle label is printed with the iconic painting of George Washington's pre-dawn crossing of the Delaware River prior to the battle of Trenton, New Jersey (Goldspot's home state). The words "The erosion of class & aristocracy and the fragile beginning of liberty & meritocracy" are also printed on the label, along with the Noodler's Logo, "Made in the USA" & our Goldspot "G" logo.

I love this color. It is my ideal blue. It is vibrant. And more importantly, it SHADES! I have to use this ink in a flexible nib to get the shading, so it is in an Ahab at all time...view mores. When I want a light blue, I use a light touch. It comes out almost turquoise. When I want a darker blue, I press harder and it is almost traditional deep blue in its color.
You might be wondering why it is getting 4 stars instead of 5, right? It is because the ink leaves a bad residue on pens. It does not STAIN the pen, but you have can't clean it out without a little bit of soft scrubbing, meaning that instead of putting this ink in the pen I really want to use it in, I have to have it in the Ahab because of its ease of cleaning. That is my only criticism. Other than that, it is one of the greatest, most expressive inks I have ever used. view less
