Noodler’s Pacific Dawn at the Golden Gate Bridge is a Noodler’s ink that’s exclusive to Straits Pen. It’s a fast drying ink with water proof properties. On Tomoe River paper with a Japanese fine nib, I’ve clocked a 5s - 6s dry time. This is an excellent workhorse ink especially for a lefty like myself. There is a slight red sheen on which is the only thing that washes out once it gets in contact with water. There is a crazy amount of nib creep on my Pilot Vanishing Point. Colour-wise, Noodler’s Pacific Dawn is a standard blue-black colour which shades slightly in broader nib sizes. Personally, the colour isn’t my cup of tea but for the fast drying and water proof properties, any colour will do.
