Like most people I like novelties, especially when it comes to inks and fountain pens. You know - I've been looking for grail ink for three years and there's always chance it's still ahead of me
When I came across Super5 inks mention on Goulet's site, I thought the bottles looked cool and - in a way - familiar.
The names of cities were cool as well. Colors looked really nice on swabs. My dear friend google helped me to investigate.
The inks are made by my second favourite ink maker - Rohrer & Klingner. Check their "regular" inks here.
That's good news. Really. They know what they're doing and you can expect good quality from R&K. The quality they indeed deliver.
So why Super5 inks are much more expensive than R&K inks. First of all - they're pigmented (I believe), then there need to be some margin for the distributor. At 20 euros / bottle yhey're not cheap. However unlike Caran d'Ache or Iroshizuku they offer not only more than satisfying quality, good flow and good lubrication but also added value of waterproofness and lightfastness.
Last week I was given the whole set. I'm going to review it and post comparison of the full line. Soon.
The colors are really great. Honestly. They're also extremely waterproof.
