Noodler’s #41 Brown Cheap Paper Review
Let’s start this review with a Japanese EF nib in the form of the Pilot Penmanship. It is a bit light, but almost no feathering. I’m unsure if I would use this ink regularly in such a fine nib.
Let’s move up to an F to M nib found on Fountain Pen Revolution’s flex nibs. Some minor featuring if you look very close.
Now a Lamy Safari Medium. Actually very close to the FPR flex nib, but a touch drier. Still very minimal feathering. However, #41’s shading is a bit more obvious here.
Pardon the poor flex writing.
So would I recommend using Noodler’s #41 Brown with cheap paper? Yes! Even with a wet FM nib, there is barely any feathering. Ghosting is bad enough that you won’t use both sides of hte paper, but few inks can pull that off on paper this cheap. The bleedthrough is minimal until I broke out the flex.
This month, I have very lucky to have Ed Jelley of EdJelley.com showing off his loadout. Here’s what Ed had to say about his current loadout:
