Sadly, I'm not a huge fan of Noodler's inks. Some of their colors are known to stain clear plastics (i.e., Acrylic demonstrator pens) and are not safe to use in vintage pens. I have also found that even at "bargain" prices, more expensive inks are better "value" because I use them more often. Private Reserve is a harder to find, but I prefer it to Noodler's. I really don't like the bottles that either of them come in though - flat bottomed with straight walls - that make it hard to use the last 25% of the bottle.
My most commonly used inks tend to be French made Parker Quink or Waterman. Either can be found in 50ml bottles for under $10 easily. They are often considered some of the safest inks, and I use Quink Blue-Black the most. In my modern pens, I use mostly Japanese inks (Pilot Iroshizuku) or other European brands (Diamine ink from UK, Lamy/Monteverde from Germany/Austria).

Thanks for the input, and you mention some of the warning signals I have heard before concerning Noodler's ink; stained pens and not good with vintage pens. To be honest, I have so far only one one test tube of Noodler's Apache Sunrise at home. Having going ape on Japanese Inks as well as french, I guess I might pass Noodler's anyway. It becomes a bit expansive here due to imports and not being that common. So, mostly I'm trying to get inspiration but also some feedback IF there is suddenly a good deal on here for some ink samples.
Many like Diamine ink, and I only like the Oxblood for it's color and that it works with my 1.1 Italic Nib for my Lamy Safari. Otherwise, I find the Diamine inks to feel like you are writing on a (google time) slate? Is that the correct word? You know the black or dark green board you had to write on with with chalk crayons with in school? Sorry, not a native speaker and some words are just really off for us. Still - I get that feeling especially on Rhodia paper, but even with Clairfontaine, Leuchturm or even Moleskin - it's like it just adds friction to the pen.
Right now I like the J.Herbin for its hues and easy flow. Sailor Jentle Inks, Pilot and for the lower cost inks I absolutely love the KWZ inks. :)

Thoughts on Wooden Pens
Hi All, I'd like to know your thoughts an opinions on pens made of wood. Things I'm interested in are shape/contour (and whether or not that is an important factor for you), price, weight, wood type (as well as color, grain structure/density). Also, RIP this community. I'm sure there are better places to buy pens anyways :(

So, uh....the Writing Community is back?
Under the COMMUNITIES menu, Writing is back under My Communities. But it's not showing up under the SHOP menu for me. And it only has one fountain pen for purchasing so far. Is this an error, or is it permanently back?

I want to start using a fountain pen in school.
I'm in 10th grade and about last month I thought I'd learn cursive writing, I saw how quick I was getting into it and enjoying writing I thought I'd make it more enjoyable. I have about 200 shekels to spend aprox 50$ If anyone could recommend a good fountain pen/kit, I'd appreciate it. I am probably getting a Parker pen soon since I can get it for free, but I want to know what I should look into. Thanks.
