Eel Gruene Cactus fountain pen bottled ink 3 oz from Noodler's Ink® [Eel Series]
Noodler's Ink® has manufactured inks with various properties. Any ink might have or not have the following characteristics: "eternal", "forgery-resistant", "bulletproof", "water-resistant", "florescent", "lubricated" or "freeze resistant". Each term is defined by Noodler's Ink®.
All "Eel" inks are bulletproof/waterproof. "Bulletproof" refers to any Noodler's Ink that resists all the known tools of a forger, UV light, UV light wands, bleaches, alcohols, solvents, petrochemicals, oven cleaners, carpet cleaners, carpet stain lifters, and of course...they are also waterproof once permitted to dry upon cellulose paper. Some inks are more bulletproof than others - generally in descending order (most bulletproof with the most testing - to less bulletproof): blacks, blues, yellows, invisible ("blue ghost" and "White Whale"), greens, browns, purples, reds....all are equally bulletproof with one exception: the resistance to strong industrial bleaches to the point where the paper structure itself decomposes. Reds are prone to more fading when exposed to strong bleaches (sometimes fading to a yellow) than the other colors.

As a certified retailer for Noodler's Ink® I am able to only list their products at their recommended MSRP. Other certified retailers of this manufacturer are given the exact same guidelines. Should you see prices under the MSRP, I would caution you as to whether or not you are receiving an item from a certified retailer of this manufacturer.

Remember buying below MSRP may not actually represent a "savings".
In an attempt to keep costs down, Noodler's Ink has opted to use plastic bottles rather than the current glass bottles which have been most difficult to obtain. The most important product, is, of course the ink. You will now be receiving a slightly higher volume of ink with less risk of breakage without any price increase.
The new plastic bottle now will have more than 3 oz of ink!
It is uncertain when Noodler's Ink will be offered in a glass bottle container.
