Nathan Tardif is at it again, creating his third ink in the Black Swan series. This ink is a teal blue color, with a halo of sky blue. Nathan designed this ink to have an increased amount of halo compared to the other inks, and he has most certainly achieved it.

This ink is more commonly referred to as Noodler's Bulletproof Black, but the official name is simply Noodler's Black. What can I say, it's arguably the single most popular ink in the US (Heart of Darkness may be a close second). It's not without reason, it's a well-performing ink, behaves great on cheap paper, it's cheap, it's very dark, and it's permanent. You really just can't go wrong.

I've always had my eye on the Lamy Dialog 3, it's a very intriguing pen! It's one of the few fountain pens out there with a retractable nib, which makes it quite practical for business use.

I have purposely avoided mixing inks up until this point because I knew I would be falling down a rabbit hole, never to be seen again! But, now that these inks are here, it's time to give in and just have some fun sloshing some ink around!

One of the appealing aspects of Edison pens is the fact you can get nibs in fine, medium, and broad, and change them out in your one pen. It's crazy easy to do, and only requires your fingers.
