I am pretty sure that I have been hitched by blue recently, though it is usually not the color I would go for. Bad Belted Kingfisher by Noodler’s is an ink with solid performance. For one week worth of usage, I have found the ink easy to use, helps with smoothness of the writing because of its lubrication, and the hue is also easy on the eyes. For those people who are looking for a safe color for professional purpose, Bad Belted Kingfisher can well be for you. Plus, the name reads a bit like a tongue twister, which adds more fun to an ink that is friendly to most writing surface. I have tested on cane paper that is notably thinner than regular 20-lb printer paper, and there is no feathering with some show-through. This ink is also a good news for those people who are not keen on shading. Though Bad Belted Kingfisher is saturated, it does have minimal shading that gives the writing a bit of texture.
