I'm a sucker for blue fountain pen ink. So, when I learned that Goulet Pen Company had worked with Noodler's Ink to create a new blue fountain pen ink called the Liberty Elysium I knew I had to try it. I ordered a bottle and received it earlier this week. As usual, I received excellent service from Goulet Pens.
I hope you can get an idea of the ink color based on some photos I took. Without proper lighting, it's quite difficult to take photos that truly do this ink justice.
First, I filled my Lamy 2000 with Liberty Elysium ink and pulled out my Triomphe note pad filled with Clarefontaine paper. This pen sports an extra fine nib. The ink went down fairly wet and seems to have some nice shading as you can see in the photo below. This pen has always been a bit more on the dry side most likely because it is an extra fine point. Yet, the color is still very good.
Next, I filled my Pilot Vanishing Point fitted with a medium nib. This pen is one of my favorites and is a wet writer. I like the look of the Libery Elysium even better in this pen. It's darker but still retains some shading.
Overall, I would say that Goulet Pen Company and Noodler's Ink have produced a wonderfully blue ink. I plan to use it in both of these pens for the forseeable future.
