As an exclusive to Dromgoole's, the Noodler's USS Texas Bottled Ink was unveiled at the Dallas Pen Show in 2016 and is available in in 3 and 16 ounce bottles.
The color is a medium to dark shade of Teal and is a well behaving with a smooth ink flow.
Although not waterproof, we feel comfortable in saying that is water resistant. If, while writing you accidentally have a liquid spill from your favorite beverage, you will see some of the blue found in the ink lift, but will leave your writing intact.
Feathering will depend on the paper you choose, but we have found minimal to no feathering on Tomoe River and Rhodia papers.
Dry time is significant on all paper types. Expect for times to exceed 30 seconds and may take as long as one minute.

This is my favorite ink! (and I have an obscene ink collection) It's very well-behaved, the color is a very dark teal green. I use it in my EDC as my daily, go-to ink at work because it's dark enough to use in a professional office setting. It behaves well on all paper, including cheap copy paper, and works well in all my pens from Aurora down to Jinhao. The color is similar to the discontinued Noodler;s Live Oak (my previous favorite), DeAtramentis Plum, Diamine Seasons Greetings, Diamine Teal, Robert Oster Velvet Storm, and Private Reserve Ebony Blue. Still, of all those, Noodler's USS Texas is my fave!
