It’s Official! A New Noodler’s Ink!10/13/2014
The new Noodler’s Ink is called General of the Armies and it has a unique twist on color. It changes over time!
First seen at the Dallas Pen Show 2014 and now available in wide release, this ink starts out green but changes to blue. I received a written sample that is green-blue along the lines of Waterman Blue Black and Iroshizuku Tsuki-yo or perhaps a faded version of Noodler’s Navy or The Big Blue Bear. This may only be a transitional color, but it certainly is pretty today.
Luxury Brands released this image today noting, “The color of the third swatch still has a touch of green as it is drying. Also don’t be surprised by the color in the bottle as you can see. Very green until it changes to cavalry blue.”
Like most of Noodler’s Inks, there is a backstory. In this case it has to do with Army uniform colors, but that tale can wait for another day. Retailers just got word of the new ink so don’t expect to find it on the shelf just yet, though it might not hurt to encourage your favorite source to stock up. I mean they should want to enable you, right?
