General Sheridan, the Supreme Commander of the armies of the west, gave the final approval to change the uniform colours after the Civil War and was then used by the armies of the west. The ink is partially bulletproof and fully eternal (Noodler's terms for permanent).
General Sheridan was a Union general in the Western theatre of the U.S. Civil War and was closely associated with Ulysses S. Grant, the General-in-chief at the time. General Sheridan gave the approval for the Armies of the West to officially change their uniforms from green to blue in the middle of the war. This fact is what inspired Noodler’s to create this colour-changing ink.
Noodler's inks are handcrafted, so there may be slight colour variations from batch to batch.
- Bulletproof: This ink is water-resistant on cellulose-based papers and resists all known tools of forgers, including UV light, bleach, alcohol, and other solvents. This ink may still be vulnerable to smearing when exposed to water.
- Eternal: Made to resist the effects of time, this ink is archival, fade-resistant, and unaffected by humid or acidic conditions.
- Partially Fluorescent: This ink glows under some wavelengths of UV light.
