Don't. I have been disappointed. The range of colors is great, but the creep on the nibs is awful. And color variety is overrated. But I have lots of Noodler's and am stuck with them. Learn from my mistake. The Pelikan 800 is nice. I lost mine (striped, not a demonstrator). I never had a Montblanc. I have a good selection of Noodler's, and barring a bit of annoying nib creep they've performed well, as well as Waterman, Pelikan, Montblanc, Sailor, or Private Reserve inks. I do try to stick to those with better reputations, though; Red-Black is in an old Shaeffer and works wonderfully, a mix of TheVioletVote/IraqiIndigo and OldManhattanBlack is my favorite ink and works well in an EF Sailor, Zhivago has never let me down. If you do, however, want to unload some of those hateful inks, PM me the colors and I'd be glad to cover shipping at least.
