Noodler's Antietam VS. Noodler's Black Swan in English Roses

The two inks that I am attracted to the most currently.

Noodler's Antietam
I am especially fond of Noodler's Antietam because of the different shading and beauty that it has. It goes from light to dark while writing. Has a tad bit of a copper/orange flare to it. I will definitely be buying a bottle of this in the near future. However, this is not an ink that I would consider writing something "professional" with. It is too light, and makes just fine for writing in my journals and personal things.

Noodler's Black Swan in English Roses
Now, Noodler's Black Swan in English Roses is a much more professional ink. I am also somewhat partial to this ink as well. It writes darker and works better for those more "professional" type of documents....well at least the ones that a person is allowed to write in a dark red ink with. A perfect ink choice for a professor or a teacher to write correctional notes with on papers and essays.

"DISEASE, PLUS" etc stuff is Noodler's Antietam

Below, I have shown directly from the gouletpens website, pictures of the two inks. The samples that are given are pretty close the actual ink itself.

Hopefully this helps anyone interested in any of the two inks. Have a wonderful day!

    1. I have been debating which one I want to get. If not both! They are both beautiful inks! But there is an ink by Diamine (Ancient Copper) that I have been wanting to try! I want to try that one before I really make a decision on which ones to purchase! I have so many inks on my "wishlist" to try LOL.
