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.


Super5 inks are sold by Format-Darmstadt GmbH on papierlabor.de site. The company offers also calligraphy pen and converter and some papers.


The inks are made by my second favourite ink maker - Rohrer & KlingnerCheck 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.


I've already reviewed Australia, Darmstadt,  Dublin and Delhi, check them.


Today let's take a look at Atlantic - Super5's blue. Nice stuff.

shading is cool and the color is interesting, but this one a little too muted for my taste. Thanks for the review.

This one is an interesting one... is more grey than blue. 


Goulet swabs makes it look bluer...   the one below is from their german site, I still like it though.  :D

Thank you!

I love it. I like nearly all of the colors from Super 5 based on your reviews. Thank you so much, for these. I follow your reviews by habit since discovering them a few months ago, and I want to thank you for such excellent reviews of so many inks. I'm a total fan.

Ooo could this be a substitute for one of my faves but sadly no longer produced Organics Blue Merle . . . ?  :)




Thing is, I really liked how Blue Merle washed away. These Super 5 inks look like they don't budge with water . . .  :mellow:

reaaally  like this colour! Like Tas, Blue Merle is one of my favourites as well, and this one looks very similar! The shading is excellent too. Thanks for a great review, as always!
