Thanks Jens :)

Ok. So Gutenberg G10 is produced by another company and the bible ink by Gutenberg museum. Is that correct? 

Anyway the Bible ink can be added to the list.... :)

Let me quote myself:

//Gutenberg Urkundentinte G10 is offered by Läufer Gutenberg - this one came from the shop of Gutenberg foundation.
//I don't know who made this ink for them.
//They also have an even stronger ig ink for dip pens, without any dye. It is labeled "Bach's Tinten"...

Cepasaccus has once reviewed the G10 in our german forum Penexchange, those times it looked like a true black:

Hi,

 

yes, it takes two...

 

I have two bottles G10 from 2018 and 2019, both are brown-black.

If you want black, add some blue-black!

Yep, a very good true sepia color (think of the cuttlefish/sqiud "ink" here, not what ink makers call sepia sometimes), I like and recommand it.

Really deserves a review. ;-)

Not bone dry ink as the bible ink, but still very dry like Diamine Registrar's.

Ah, so this is more like the old manuscripts, I've seen......

This is from a XIVth century manuscript....
