Graf von Faber-Castell was founded in 1761 and developed into the major manufacturer of wood-cased pencils. With time they started to offer much broader range of products. Few years ago company's introduced six inks. Recently they've added three new colors to the line.


  1. Carbon Black
  2. Cobalt Blue
  3. Deep Sea Green
  4. Garnet Red
  5. Hazelnut Brown
  6. Midnight Blue
  7. Moss Green
  8. Royal Blue
  9. Stone Grey

Another one of three new colors is the line is Royal Blue. The flow is decent and this ink feels much better than Deep Sea Green and Midnight Blue. The color however is too generic to my taste. Nothing interesting.

I'd just take R&K Königsblau which is much more inexpensive but maybe even better.

I was going to say that I'd hoped for so much more. I have the R&K inked up today and it's very nice. For the price F-C charges, the ink should be amazing. 


Thanks Vis, for once, you saved me money.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
