You know, there's just something about Noodler's.
Other than Apple, I can hardly think of a company that polarizes people more. Some of the debates I've seen online nearly reach the level of conflict that discussing politics or religion is likely to engender (two things, by the way, that mother always said weren't good topics of general conversation at a cocktail party).
So let me just say this, at risk of my hair catching fire: I am not a big Noodler's fan.
My reasons are more empirical than emotional. I do not find the products consistent or reliable enough for me to be comfortable recommending the brand as a whole. (Not to incite a riot, but for those who may find this statement offensive, try looking at Blue Nose Bear reviews,or many of the comments regarding the flex pens, and even the new Ahabs in terms of start-right-up reliability. Or not.)
That being said, there are certain inks in the Noodler's line that I really like. And Ottoman Rose is one of them.
I love the not-quite-red, not-quite-pink color. I love the shading properties. And it behaves itself quite nicely, thank you. All things that I like in an ink.
Here's a review for you of this very fun ink. Grab some for yourself; you'll see what I mean!
