Noodler's and corrosion?
Permalink Closed


I just bought my first bottle of Noodler's ink (Coral Sea) however the saleslady was a little cautious about me using it in vintage pens.

She said that they found that the ink corroded some of the feeds that they tried the ink in. From what I have so far read I thought that these inks were generally inert and popular with users of vintage pens.

Could anyone elaborate with experiences that you have had?

With thanks,

I've used noodlers for years & have restored pens that have used nothing but. IMHO, her statement of feed corrosion is total BS. Noodlers like PR is simply a more saturated ink & therefore prone to clogging if left to dry out & not flushed on a semi regular basis, (bi-monthly is my frequency),. Flush your pens & no problems except that nib creep thing that annoys me some but thats just par for the course.

In shjort, I love noodlers inks & have had no major problems with them at all.

Things to keep in mind. Saturated inks can stain ink windows and light colored pens.
