    Default Noodler's Recreant Rhinoceros (RINO)

    Noodler's Recreant Rhinoceros (RINO)

    I was attracted to this ink because it is quite a chameleon. I like inks that transform. This one writes from black and then dries to a Green/ Teal, depending paper.
    The name of this ink is intended to provoke. A marketing gimmick: pity as the ink is complex enough, to stand on its own.
    But we’re not here, to debate politics, but enjoy the creativity and diversity of inks




    Just check the chroma:


    And the water test.



    Check the back of the paper:



    I don’t have any ink, to can compare it with. Ink writes a grey black and dries to a variety of colours depending on your paper.


    Now some visuals on different papers:
    Midori


    Stalogy:

    Classic Tomoe River (Photo)

    and Peter Pauper - Thick absorbent Paper:





    · Pen used: Noodler’s Ahab / Lamy Safari Broad/ Reverse
    · Ghosting: Possible on cheap/ thin papers. There's ghosting on Stalogy, for ex. but that can be modulated by less pressure or a different nib.

    · Lubrication: Good.
    · Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.
    · Start-up: None

    · Shading Yes.
    · Sheen: No
    · Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: See for yourself
    · Nib Creep / A bit on Ahab…
    · Staining (pen): One of the easiest inks to clean.
    · Clogging: None.

    Thanks Yazeh for the review - I love the properties of this ink, but really, really dislike the politics and thinking behind it, making it a hard no for me, which is a shame because the colour and behaviour is so attractive.

    Why can't it just be about the ink?

    I totally agree. I use it as a spiritual practice.

    Thank you for the great ink review.

    Whether you agree with the apparent politics behind the name or not, it is a lively way to market ink.

    But I must say, I am not a huge fan of Noodler's inks - not because of the politics (I could care less), but because of the formulation and odor (of both the ink and the politics!)

    It is. Isn't it? I prefer the historical themed ink to this one...

    Yes. I need my inky life dangerously with Noodler's. And sure some of them are scented like KTC, but thankfully it dissipates rather quickly...
