I am a pathology resident and my notes are frequently around fluids. I had to choose between using ballpoint pens (ugh!) and water resistant inks (yay!) Noodlers inks have an amazing range of water resistant inks and I decided to try them. This ink has such an awesome blue color and is completely water resistant - I purposefully spilled water on my notes to make sure :D. I have been using in with my Lamy studio so I don’t know if it stains demonstrators and if I’ll have any issues on changing inks - but I’ll be sure to update my review if I have any issues. For now, I highly recommend these inks for people working around liquids!
I love Noodlers Baystate Blue Ink. First it is my favorite shade if Blue and second the archival/water resistant is really useful since I don’t have to worry about the writing smearing if water hits it. It dries quickly and looks good coming out of my Fine Nibbed pens. I really like this ink. Since it is water resistant I wear gloves when I fill and clean pens with this ink but a good brush and bleach cleanser removes any stains. I consider it worth the small price of effort to use my favorite Blue.
I really liked this ink when I first got it in my Inkredible box up until last night. I went to my kitchen sink to clean the ink out of my Montverde pen so that I could try my new Hayabusa ink. I've cleaned ink before in our sink without a problem at all but this ink..... It stained my 2 month old stainless steel sink. Hoo boy if my mama had seen it she would have killed me. I did manage to get it clean but I'm not sure if I will ever use it again. Other than the staining, my nib got stuck when I tried to remove it, almost breaking the feed, and it stained the converter and nib feed. If I do use it again it will be with my dip pen alone. because it is a very nice color and the bottle comes filled to the brim.
I love Noodlers Inks and was very happy to receive this is my September Inkredible Box. I heard stories about how careful you had to be with Baystate Blue so I hesitated to try it. Well, let me tell you, this ink is gorgeous. Such a vivid blue. It stands out and works well on all types of papers. I am very happy I received this in my box. I do suggest you open your bottle carefully because, as we all know, Nathan fills them to the brim!
This came in my September box, along with fine-nibbed MonteVerde Prima Tiger Eye and Stipula Adagio Light Blue fountain pens.
The ink drew up easily in both of those pens and every other in which I tested it.
It flows beautifully and dries quickly.
Even when I managed to get it on my fingers, I couldn't help but admire the beautiful color.
