This 50ml bottle of Rohrer and Klingner's archival ink was not inexpensive, but performed well beyond my expectations. It writes wet, yet dries quickly. Is absolutely unfazed by water, and works on the cheapest papers. The only downside I have noticed is that while doing the crossword (yes, it works on newsprint!), it did hard start a little if I was too slow on a clue. It can hardly be faulted for that, though...

Vintage. Cursive italic. Iron gall.

This is how the two SketchINKs I tested behaved - Frieda and Emma.

 

This blue is too ordinary for me, but great review! :)

I have the sketchinks and their performance on any paper is above and beyond. Glad to hear that the dokumentus ones follow their footsteps, R&K is a great manufacturer. Thanks for your review.

Thanks for this contribution. I have all of their dokumentus inks and am not that hot about the colours themselves but as you say, their "writeability" -- above all wetness and nil bleed-through -- is excellent, especially for such permanent inks.

Great review!

 

I've tried it and found it to be very wet too.

Thank you for showing this ink. I’ve never tried R&K inks before, but from what you show here, and what LizEF mentioned about the SketchINKs, these would be great for my EDC pens and use at work (where I use my excellent Endless Recorder notebook, but unfortunately also cheap copier paper). 

I’m not particularly fond of this colour, but I liked the teal-leaning Frieda SketchINK that LizEF showed in her video review. Might have to give these inks a try...

:thumbup: They're definitely worth a try.  And I'd say put them in a non-demonstrator if you get obsessed with removing "ink lines". ;)

Grrr! A new ink to try... well, to be true I've intended to give the Dokumentus line a try for some time now, but I still have too much ink to finish first.

You might add the Super5 inks into the foray:) They are more expensive but are also made by R&K....

At the same time, get a Super5 pen. Very well built -- especially the convertor -- and not expensive....

Thanks for the review.  I'm not a fan of the color fo Dunkelblau, because the color is a little chalky looking.  But I like its sister ink Hellblau quite a bit.
