My Fountain Pen Day Was Colored By Noodler’s

11/04/2016

Today was Fountain Pen Day and I opted for Noodler’s with a Neponset and Civilization’s Blue, a limited edition ink. You might not have heard of Civ Blue, but it is a terrific ink that shades, sheens and works beautifully on any grade of paper. Like a lot of saturated inks, it can dry slowly on paper like Clairefontaine but it’s worth the wait. Here is what Carol at Luxury Brands wrote about the ink when she offered me a bottle.

John and I are donating 100% of the proceeds to the ATO, (Assist the Officer Foundation). The foundation gives the money to injured law enforcement or to the families of officers killed in the line of duty. This is a very special ink. The brilliant coloration is representative of the thin blue line across the black ribbon that fellow officers wear after they have lost one of their own. The “thin blue line” is symbolic of the line between a civilized society with law enforcement or total anarchy without them. I wanted you to have a bottle. It will not be made again and it is almost gone. The ink is fraud proof, bulletproof, and eternal. I just noticed the other symbolic terms in reference to the ink properties and the law enforcement. Not intended but ironic.

As of a few days ago, Carol had a handful of bottles left. So if you want one, contact her directly at carol@luxurybrandsusa.com.

  2. Swatch? But the concept is brilliant and touching.

    • Yes, a swatch is in order, but it will take special lighting to capture the sheen. Perhaps later today…
