Blue Upon The Plains of Abraham June 7, 2018
Reviewer: Arjen van der Wal from Toronto, ON  
Really nice dark grey-blue color. You need to shake the bottle once in awhile - after I hadn't used mine for awhile it had gotten a bit ropy on top. I closed the bottle, gave it a couple shakes and all was good again.
The ink had a very pungent chem factory smell that's actually kind of endearing after awhile (and seems to go away after the ink dries on paper).
This is a permanent ink, so it has some of the usual cautions that go with that. The nib can dry easily if left uncapped and if the pen doesn't have a cap that seals well, you constantly have hard starts. Longer term, it can clog the pen so you can expect some periodic maintenance. In my Lamy Safari (medium nib) it took something like 6+ fills before flow was noticeably impeded.
Other than that the ink flows nicely, doesn't feather and looks great on the page (regardless of the type of paper).

Bad behave ink May 26, 2018
Reviewer: Cosmos Zhu from Waterloo,ON  
As the other review mentions, it feathers like crazy. The only paper I had that can hold this ink was Tomoe River. And it feathers on all other papers, Rhodia, 1917, Clairefontaine, Midori MD, Life. etc. The color is good, flow is more than excellent. But I can't use this ink since it feathers on everything I write daily.

Disappointing May 21, 2018
Reviewer: Matthew B from N/A  
The ink produces feathering even on rhodia 80gsm. There is no blue whatsoever in the ink - it is a dark grey ink after drying. Furthermore, the ink seems to strip my piston fillers of their silicone grease, which makes it almost impossible for me to use this in any pen. I don’t like having to perform frequent maintenance on my pens, and this one catalyzes that.

Blue on the Plains of Abraham by Noodlers Ink January 31, 2018
Reviewer: Helen Dyer from New Brunswick, Canada  
I loved the colour.  But the ink seemed viscous and gluey after the first time I filled my pen -a Noodlers Ahab. When I went to refill recently I found that my filler mechanism was stuck and the small tube that goes from the nib section into the filler was completely clogged.  An attempt to wash out my pen yielded several lumps, which I photographed along with the clogged pen mechanism, and sent to Wonderpens, thinking that they might at least let me know that they’d investigate.  When no return email came I phoned and was told “the ink is probably mouldy - you should just throw it out”.  Since the bottle is almost full, I protested that this didn’t seem like very sound business practice, especially if one is expected to purchase Noodlers ink again.  An email to Noodlers has also been met with silence. As a lifetime fountain pen user I have never met this problem before, nor have I often met this level of disinterest in customer satisfaction.

Underwhelmed May 24, 2017
Reviewer: Margaret McDonald from Toronto, ON Canada  
I have to say I was rather disappointed with this one. I don't know if it was just my bottle but it doesn't show even this slightest hint of blue; it's just grey, no matter what the nib. I'd rather splurge and go with the Iroshizuku Shin-Kai, a true blue-black with lovely red sheen.
