Recently I reviewed the full (short) line of Super 5 inks. They're something new (pigmented, waterproof, lightfast) but they're produced by well known company Rohrer & Klingner. Does it mean there's no place for new ink producers? Well...
I believe many of you will be thrilled to know there's new ink maker on the market.Octopus Concept GmbH.
The company has web shop selling printer ink and toner, It seems one of their chemists thought he'd enjoy creating fountain pen inks too.
The inks are produced in ten colors and can be purchased in Pelikan style no-nonsense 30 ml bottles , 40 ml bottles and huge 250 ml bottles. The colors are:
What caught my attention was good price per ml and interesting and intense shading. Besides I enjoy novelties. I just couldn't resist myself. Hopefully I'm in good, lenient companionship here. Anyway I'll review the full line. Actually I've already done it but there's no haste, is there?
Let's take a look at Konigsblau - decent but not really exciting blue. The color is generic and - while pleasant - rather boring at the same time.
