I bought this to have mostly as a highlighter ink. It will suit for that purpose, too, but this is a lovely yellow ink that should be used for more purposes than just highlightning. It reminds me of summer and the yellow colour resembles sunflower so much that I almost think I even feel a hint of the delicate sunflower scent. I wish it were summer...

In the meantime (for us north of the equator) this ink will give a glimpse of summer. It is also very wellbehaved...
Cheers/Petra

Thank you P2P! I realised after a few minutes with this ink that I was smiling because this yellow made me so happy. Just like sunflowers do in the summer. cloud9.gif

This is a fabulous ink! Definitely leans to a wonderful warm and bright yellow.

Also, Rohrer & Klingner's Helianthus/Sunflower is a dead-ringer for Pelikan's looooong-discontinued Helianthus! smile.gif

Seriously though, that is the kind of ink that lifts your mood at any time of year. Thanks for the review.

Based on this review and the comments it generated, I have just ordered the R&K Helianthus/Sunflower ink. I have been looking for a yellow with some here-I-am intensity and this seems to be it. It should arrive close to the time that my Pelikan M640 Sahara arrives. I'm hoping to wed the two as I like to correlate barrel color(s) with ink. Without the FPN I never would have heard of R&K. Thanks all. (or should I hold the thanks until I see the ink?). rolleyes.gif
