I didn't say Noodler's. I just advocated research. I didn't even say it couldn't be red ink. What problems are you alluding to so mysteriously? Nathan has a lot more than just bulletproof inks. Jetpen also has a very nice guide to Noodler's inks. But there are other brands that also offer permanent inks.coco wrote: ↑Tue Aug 08, 2017 8:10 amAny student with a pinkish blur where a grade should be gets sent to the principal's office, where they will probably get expelled. He got me into fountain pens, and understands ink properties.Rusty wrote: ↑Tue Aug 08, 2017 7:36 amUnbelievable. That's a water soluble dye-based ink. Quick trip to the washroom or water fountain and you can wash that bloody grade away. If the student even runs through a rain storm with her work that mark is in danger. There may be no evidence after. It's not just the sneaky under performers that are a problem. Your better students will return to you complaining that the grade they wanted to show Mom is gone with the wind (and the rain). I think you're too attached to the dramatic.
One might imagine that the science teacher does a little research first? Grades and marks on paper are serious biz, Jack.
Plus why some inks are waterproof vs. others that can be washed away is a good science discussion.
Here.... a Jet pen guide to water proof fountain pen inks.
I appreciate Nathan Tardis, but his focus on permanency seems to have invoked a lot of worry about unlikely problems.
FWW, I nonetheless sign checks with Heart of Darkness.
I didn't think anyone used Cheques anymore. Who even accepts them? Note the spelling. Checks... sheesh. Checks are marks you write on a student paper when they did it well. We use wands with full wifi i/f to transfer money... "The wand chooses the wizard, the wizard chooses the amount and the destination". It's a bit like GR.

Nathan provided a really nice permanent ink to a Canadian shop as an exclusive. Blue Upon The Plains of Abraham.
We are pleased.

All summer long I've had Noodler's Burma Road Brown in one of my Edison's. Really nice well behaved ink. I really like it but it's not bulletproof. This is one of his historical inks. He recreated WWII Victory Mail inks. This is cool. Very nice.
Hey! Goulet Pens is moving. They're big enough now that it hits the news. Holy smokes are they big! Is there a bigger US pen seller?
Fountain Pen Peddler Spills into New HQ
Aurora has brought back their 1950's Aurora Duo cart pen. It looks very 50's. Comes only with a medium nib which is fine for me. Apparently it's a very nice writer. It resembles the Parker 51 too, so it has a hooded nib. But it takes a proprietary cartridge converter (some have reported that it's compatible with the Parker converter). Nice packaging too. Apparently they're using original pen cases from the 50's which they still had. I just bought one! But it hasn't arrived yet. The prices in Canada are better than the US prices. Making Italy great for the first time since the Romans.
