    Cool Noodler's Chekhov - A pastel pink

    Noodler’s Chekhov is Light pastel pink, belonging to the Russian line.
    One of the most subtle and soft inks I have ever used and one of the best inks, I've ever tried, period. It brings me silent joy.

    From what I've tried and tested, I really like the Russian Series in General. They are well behaved and easy to clean and water resistant. They have also rekindled my passion for reading poetry.

    A bit about Anton Chekhov:
    He was born in 1869 and died at age 44 from tuberculosis.


    He was a doctor by profession, but is considered one the greatest writers of all times. He once said, "Medicine is my lawful wife, and literature is my mistress."

    Chekhov was author of four plays, the Sea Gull, Uncle Vanya and 3 Sisters, the Cherry Orchard and many short stories. I assume the ink is a nod to the Cherry Orchard an

    The ink shades delightfully with broad and flex nibs. It’s a shade that soothes the soul. The ink was slightly less lubricated in my Lamy Safari. It gave just enough feedback to remind me, that I'm writing.
    Dry time is about 15 seconds.

    Here is a written sample on FIELD NOTES, notebooks. These are non FP friendly notebooks, super absorbent.

    Note Russian series inks are more expensive than standard bulletproof inks.
    Ink is bulletproof however, if you drag a wet Q-tip on the ink, it can be removed to a certain extent. However, under running water it looks fine and rubbing alchol doesn't faze it at all. Ink is fluorescent.

    Great review! And thank you for sharing a little of the background about Chekhov. It appears to be a lovely ink. Perhaps I may have to try this one, and the Russian series.

    Thanks. You might find some of them interesting. I wonder maybe they're being well behaved because of the fluorescent component.
