I have a bottle on Noodlers General of the Armies. Love the color, however, seems to dry up quickly in my Safari broad nib. If any one would like to try it, I will be happy to send it off to them.YMMV. First to reply to this post wins.

Great gesture, Charlie.

Cincinnatus, let us know what you think of the ink.  Any chance of a photo of a writing sample?

Yes - would be happy to provide photos of the writing samples if you don't mind my hand writing...

Again thank you Charlie.

Charlie,

I received the ink and it works well.  Thank you again.  
It does seem to flow a little heavier then some of my other inks but I don't seem to have issues with it drying up - at least in this pen.  It is a Monteverde Impressa in gun metal and red.

Per Freddy's request - here is a pic.  Again - sorry for the bad handwriting.

Nothing wrong with the writing as it meets the most important of criteria; it's legible!

The pen is a beauty and the ink is an interesting shade of blue. From the photo, it almost looks to have some gray in it.

Glad you like it. As freddy said it's legible! Your hand is not that bad.  Actually I thought it to be a grey/green ink myself. Use it in good health!

Honestly, Charlie, I think accurate ink colors have to be one of the most difficult to reproduce on a computer unless one really knows how to manipulate things.  Both Cincinnatus and you have actually seen and used the ink whereas I have not.  If I had then I might probably have agreed with you.

Looking at the page it takes on a grey/green tone.

Considering the photo was taken with a smart phone and the uploaded and monitors look different - colors are tough to judge.

Photoshop will bite you if you don't calibrate your monitor and then send you print off to be produced. :-)
