    P.w. Akkerman Groenmarkt Smaragd

    P.W. Akkerman Groenmarkt Smaragd P.W. Akkerman Den Haag Akkerman is a very noble supplier of the finest stationery and writing equipment from all around the world, offering their services all around the world. When I wrote very noble... I mean very noble without exaggeration… There are many companies that supply noble stationery but there are only few who supply the truly noble The Hague Passage which dates back to the early days of the Belle Epoque is a fitting residence for a company that personifies Noblesse Oblige at it’s finest just as the city of the Hague is the epitome of Dutch Noblesse oblige. https://denhaag.com/...ion/428/passage The Hague is not only the seat oft he Dutch parliament but also home of Dutch house of Royals where King Willem Alexander van Oranje-Nassau resides. As Hofleverancier, purveyor to the House of Royals, and who knows how many ambassadors from all around the world, Akkerman can truly state that it supplies the world‘s finest with the finest in stationery The Ink and the Bottles The ink bottles Having a look at the lovely Akkerman Ink bottles it is hard to believe Akkerman only started supplying inks under their own name as from 2010 Well with ink bottles it is like with fine wines… “good wines need no bush” There are ink companies that supply normal inks in noble packages which it is like watering in crystal wine bottle… The bottle thrills, its contents taste like something one definately needs to discard of soon. Without being to philosophical, I truly believe that true nobility is an inner value. Therefore, it is is a pleasure to know that Akkerman’s heavenly Inks are served in such noble bottle which are a most beautiful reminiscence of the golden age of fountain pen writing… As I mentioned above, it is hard to believe that Akkerman started supplying their inks in 2010 only The Ink points 1-5 1 = 5= Fountain Pens: Lamy Italic 1.5 italic / Conklin Duragraph F nib Paper: Waldmühle Reflex Premium Drying time: fast points 5 Flow: very smooth points: 5 Lubrication: smooth in both pens points: 5 Bleeding: absent) Points 5 Shading: medium none points: 3 Waterproof: will survive a drop points: 3 Package: One of the most beautiful points: The Ink. This ink is a smooth and excellent writer. It does not even feather on even the cheapest paper. The colour is Moss or Forest Green it is dark green and shading There is some show through but it is not too strong. Feathering is medium till good. The drying time is very short just 5 seconds which means this an excellent ink for left Hand writers. Funnily the Akerman Lievens Kardinaaal Paars has an even shorter drying tie of only 3 seconds The Ink name All Akkerman "standard" inks are named after typical The Hague streets, locations or expressions. The Groenmarkt is The Hague's central square. In the Middle Ages, the vegetable market was held here and fishermen from Scheveningen would come here to sell their wares. Some of the houses have retained their Art Nouveau façades, while several pedestrian streets run off the square: the Paleispromenade to the north, and to the south, De Passage, a wide covered arcade built in 1885 which is popular with shoppers. More importantly de Groenmarkt is also the location where the entrance of an old and noble shopping mall is located…. Why is that so important…. Akkerman is situated in this lovely mall https://www.viamichelin.co.uk/web/Tourist-Attraction/Den_Haag-2513_AL-Groenmarkt-a5nyv5bf Ink Comparison Availabilty:https://www.vulpennen.nl/en/ Conclusion Yet another superb ink by Akkerman Of course taste is personal but I love dark green inks. This ink has a “antique look2 which I love it for. Writing is smooth and then there is this most lovely bottle, the quicky drying, the smooth writing and the lovely Colour make this ink a Work of Art too. I have also tested Akkerman Lievens Kardinaal Paar from their Dutch Master Collection https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/338322-pw-akkerman-lievens-kardinaal-paars/ I believe I want to buy ALL Akkerman inks I Love them

This ink is a smooth and excellent writer. It does not even feather on even the cheapest paper. The Colour has something of the violet hues of an eggplant. It's violet being not to feminine for my taste There is some showthrough but it is not too strong. Feathering is medium till good. The drying time is very short under 3 seconds which maens this an excellent ink for left Hand writers Jan Lievens The Colour As I mentioned before the ink has something of the violet hues of an eggplant. More specific it is in the middle of this eggplat and the Colour of the ladies clothies in the pictures. Maybe the Colour of the ink, at first glance, is not completely similar to the Colour on the painting but it does come close. Down here is a colour comparison Conclusion Superb ink with a lovely Colour. I love the Colour it is not to feminin like the Pelikan and the De Atramentis Heather Violet are. It is simply beautiful The most lovely bottle, the quicky drying, the smooth writing and the lovely Colour make this ink a Work of Art.... I Love it

  4. Two bottles of P.W. Akkerman ink arrived by post this afternoon. One bottle is called “Shocking Blue;” the other, “Het Zwarte Pad,” or The Black Path. P.W. Akkerman is a boutique pen store located in Den Haag, the Netherlands. The ink and bottle is exclusive to them. I have wanted at least one Akkerman ink bottle to add to my collection of encre for years now, but I was put off by the high cost, especially for shipping. Each 150ml bottle runs 13.64 euro or about $18 each with an additional $30 to transport both bottles to the United States. What changed my mind? Well, look at the design of the bottle, to begin with. It’s beautiful; a marvel of industrial design. The rounded base is actually made up of eight beveled sides. You see that blue marble-like ball in the bottle neck? That ball keeps the ink inside the neck when it is made to stand straight. The ball effectively creates a small reservoir in the neck ready for dipping. Look at the cap on the center bottle. It has a tiny air-pistol built into the cap which acts as a sort of ventilator. That little needle nose helps decrease any internal air pressure that invariably occurs every time you turn the cap closed. It also prevents the ink from spouting like a geyser when reopened. The label, calligraphy, and artwork on the bottle itself as well as on the box it comes in is just old world charming. It is these details that distinguish this brand of fountain pen ink and make it easier for me to justify the high cost of shipping. What made me feel better about spending the $65 for two bottles, including shipping, was knowing that the design is unique to P.W. Akkerman. To the best of my knowledge, you cannot find these bottles made by any other pen company. And while $65 may seem like a lot of money, the bottles are big, 150ml or 5 fluid oz. Even so, 30 bucks is still a lot of money, but cheaper than swimming the Atlantic for it, I guess. In the end, pride in my Dutch heritage was the tipping point. There is so much pleasure in writing with a fountain pen, and for the past few years I have begun to collect fountain pen inks in the same way that wine connoisseurs collect bottles of vin. The P.W. Akkerman fountain pen ink bottle is really a smart set up as far as ink bottles go. The only other bottle design that comes close to being as much fun to use and to look at are the 4.5 oz Noodler’s bottles with the eyedropper tops. I’m impressed with how the folks at P.W. Akkerman packed the bottles. They actually opened each box before hand, wrapped the bottle in a tiny plastic bag and then added Styrofoam peanuts to the box before putting it inside the larger cardboard box meant for shipping. It was thoughtful and actually quite a brilliant idea to pack this way because if they hadn’t taken this extra step, the bottle would certainly have bounced around during its flight to New York City and could have broken as a result. Attention to detail is the mark of excellence in my book. Thought I’d share this fountain pen ink moment with you in the hope that you take as much delight in the art of writing as I do.
