What do you do when you buy some ink that happens to come with a free pen, and you discover that you’re absolutely in love with said pen? You buy more ink, of course!
I fell in love with the Charlie pen by Noodler’s that came with my purchase of Heart of Darkness. These larger bottles with pens were a special edition limited run, but they can still be found out there on Amazon, eBay, and several other sites.
I couldn’t resist an ink named Dragon’s Napalm, and so I’ve now added it to my collection. As fun as it was to watch black ink slosh around inside the pen, it’s even more fun with Dragon’s Napalm, which is rather bloodlike. I can sign all my future contracts in blood now, yay!
The ink comes out in a brilliant cherry red, reminiscent of dragons guarding their hordes of gold deep in the mountains of 1960’s fantasy novels. Like all Noodler’s inks that I have experienced, it flows well and is such a joy to write with. It’s perfect for proofreading or plotting the death of antagonists.
