Noodler’s Heart of Darkness

Noodler’s Heart of Darkness is a true black fountain pen ink with a reasonable price and a huge number of fans.

The ink is sold in a 4.5 oz bottle (about 130 ml) that is filled to the very, very top — a Noodler’s trademark move. It has a built-in eyedropper which can come in handy with your eyedropper pens.

Heart of Darkness isn’t the easiest fountain pen ink to clean and it can stain some lighter parts, but it’s rather well-behaved and reasonably fast drying. It is a pigmented ink, which means it’s water-resistant, and it’s part of Noodler’s “bulletproof” series so it’s also light-resistant and archival quality.

The color of Heart of Darkness is a deep black with no sheen or shading on the page.
