    Cool Noodler's Pushkin

    Noodler’s Pushkin

    Agreeable muted green/blue. While it doesn’t capture the flamboyance of one Alexander Pushkin, it encapsulates the Russian spirit complexities and nuances.

    A bit about Pushkin before touching his namesake, considered the father of modern Russian literature. His great-grandfather was Abram Petrovich Gannibal, kidnapped from “Africa” gifted to Peter the Great, freed, and ennobled.


    Most of his works are in form poetry.

    And he was killed in a duel of honor, by his bother-in-law, a French Officer, in a duel at age 37.

    Now to the ink.

    I had difficulties reviewing this ink. This is the first Noodler’s which seemed to have flow issues. It absolutely disliked Ahab, especially when flexed. However, when I wrote with a light touch, the pen glided effortlessly.

    Chroma:

    However, compared to similar inks, i.e. Akhmatova, General of the Armies the writing experience was uneven to put it diplomatically. I enjoyed it however, in Lamy Safari.

    Ink even diluted, is waterproof.
    Here is diluted test:

    Ink is fluorescent, I would place it between Akhmatova (subtle) and General of the Armies (striking)

    Спасибою. Очень хорошою. Thank you for the extensive review.

    After looking at the comparison swabs, I think I'll try a bottle.

    Пожалуйста!
    I would recommend a sample. While, I truly love muted greens, my sample as I mentioned above was sluggish. Pity, as in the bulletproof family, this one was truly well behaved. And so easy to clean..
