Thank you Visvmitra for this visual review!

 

I am an Alt-Goldrun and Magenta fan. However I now want to try the other colors.

great work! thank you for doing this.  :cheers:

 

this pic makes me want to try sepia - some other images i've seen indicated it lacked the brown aspect i see here.  

 

scabiosa and salix are my daily go-to inks for everything, and they never disappoint.  I like my inks to be waterproof. and both of these shade wonderfully in virtually every pen i have. 

 

i've started using alt bordeaux recently and like it for scrawled notes that will probably be scanned and discarded.

You really are amazing! All the time you are spending just to show us all these colours. And you are right. Rohrer & Klingner have very nice colours. They are bright and they are a joy to write with. And you what I like the bottle too. It has something familiar. They look and feel large and are very practical. Thank you for sharing this wonderfull comparison.

Catherine.

I had to look up Visvamitra to check if it means "thoroughness"... I'm digging that verdigris...

I think Smaragdgrun looks better in a finer nib. I'm currently using it in a Pilot 78G Fine (which is really close to an XXF) and it is bright and nicely complements my other greens: Green Marine, Avacado, and Alt-GoldGrun.

An incredibly useful post.  Thank you very much.

 

My R&K experience to date is limited to Sepia and Verdigris both of which I found to be excellent inks.

Vis, if you have one sheet I can use for a fade test, that would be great.

I love Alt-goldgrun. It lives up to its name. Alt-bordeaux is a winner, too.

 

I also love the color of Konigsblau and Verdigris. But they both disappear with water. A couple drops and they disappear without a trace.

Thank you so much! This review is tempting me with getting some samples. I'm liking the Alt-Bordeaux, Scabosia and Sepia. I have a sample of the Salix and I was surprised that I didn't like it.

huge effort producing this - great work  :thumbup:

 

surprised though at the Salix samples - it looks washed out.  In my experience it always produces a deep rich colour with shading.

Great comparison, visvamitra! I always enjoy your reviews.

I have 8 R&K inks and I like all of them. It's so hard to choose a favourite... Should I get the whole line? Should I? 

 You should! You should! I have 3 R&K inks and they are all great behaving inks and very easy to clean. Very nice colors too!
