  1. Rohrer & Klingner Dokumentus Ink - Braun This ink is one of the best, permanent inks I’ve ever used. It has wonderful low dry time, below 30s with broad nib on all paper. It’s a joy to write or sketch with. It is the epitome of German efficiency. It works, it’s solid and it’s simple. There’s nothing “sexy” about this ink, it hasn’t got a complex chroma or an unusual name. For simplicity’s sake, I limited my testing to two pen, and avoided flex and fude nibs. Writing samples: A full written page with a broad nib, might have a hint of green, or a lovely grey haze, depending on the light. As a sketch ink, it looks almost black, especially on absorbent paper, as you can see on this sketch: Paper is Fabriano Sketch - Very absorbent paper. Cat at the therapist Cat: I identify as I dog. But the dogs don't like me. Dr. Mouse: As long as you don't identify as a cat, I'm fine with that Watertest: I cut the paper into two. The left side was held under running water for 10 seconds. Comparaison · Pens used: Pilot Elite (Ef/Stub) Lamy Safari (Ef/F/M/B) · What I liked: Well lubricated, classy, fast dry times, lovely in all pens. · What I did not like: Nothing. · What some might not like: Price – Lack of shading. · Shading: None. · Ghosting: Faint · Bleed through: None · Flow Rate: Wet · Lubrication: Excellent · Nib Dry-out: None. · Start-up: None · Saturation: Dark · Shading Potential: None. · Sheen: None. · Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: None · Nib Creep / “Crud”: Nope. · Staining (pen): No. · Clogging: No. · Cleaning: · Water resistance: Excellent · Availability: 50 ml bottles Please don't hesitate to share your experience, writing samples or any other comments.

  2. Just a brief note on a recent comparison: a bottle of Robert Oster Signature Bronze had been lingering in my ink drawer until I decided to use it a new acquisition by Atelier Veleray (more on that in the near future). It turned out greener than I'd expected, similar to KWZ Green Gold but slightly lighter. The attached image is an unprocessed photograph hastily taken with a smartphone. Still, it comes close to what I see on paper, especially in the lower part, where Bronze and Green Gold are separated by Callifolio Olivastre. In the upper part, where the two inks are next to each other, Green Gold appears a bit too dark. The other two inks included as a kind of control in the comparison are Callifolio Olivastre (in a Diamond Point with a flexible broad nib) and Rohrer & Klingner Sepia (in a Delta Tech & Web with a stub nib). KWZ Green Gold came from a Montblanc 149 with a medium nib and the Atelier Veleray pen sported a broad nib I had from a Visconti Rembrandt. Bottom line: nice colour and a well-behaved ink. As my interest in shading increases, Bronze may replace the darker KWZ Green Gold among my favourites.
  3. From the album: Japanese pens

    This Platinum Balance pen, with a gold-plated steel nib, held Rohrer & Klingner Salix for ten or eleven weeks. At no point did the nib hard-start, despite the known shortcoming that the cap seal performance on the Platinum Balance is nowhere near as good as on cheaper Platinum models equipped with Slip & Seal inner caps. However, by the end of said period, less than 10% of the initially full fill of ink remained in the converter, even though the pen was only used moderately lightly for writing in the meantime.

  4. Rohrer and Klingner sketchINK® Jule These pigmented inks are purported to be both lightfast and waterproof and are designed for sketching. Jule is la lighter version of Super5 Australia. Truly delightful both on Midori and TR 68, the papers I use most often, but equally great on all types of paper. Tomoe River 6 8gr Midori Dry time in my experience is on the longer side. However, it can be mitigated with finer nibs, drier pens or more absorbent paper. I prefer this series with modern flex, or wide nibs where I get more character out of these inks. However, it is imperative to use pens with a good seal, otherwise you need dip your nib under water to keep it running again. • Pen used: Noodler’s Ahab, Lamy Safari broad • Shading: Yes • Ghosting: None • Bleed through: None. • Flow Rate: Good. Austalia is wetter. • Lubrication: Nice • Nib Dry-out: Depending the pen. Needs well sealed pens. • Start-up: If not used it can dry out, in pens with high evaporation. • Saturation: Dusky • Shading Potential: With broad and flex. • Sheen: No • Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: None. • Nib Creep / “Crud”: None • Staining (pen): I use a pen cleaning solution for the feeds. • Clogging: Nope • Water resistance: Waterproof • Availability: Only in bottle 50 ml bottles.

    Some Blues

    If there were a support group for blue ink addicts, I should attend the meetings. I just can't resist the blues. I already have more than enough but still keep buying and comparing them, always in search of yet another perfect blue ink. Until recently my favourites were Diamine Midnight (dark blue), Visconti Blue and Akkerman KoninginneNach-blauw (light blue). Rohrer & Klingner Blau Permanent fell out of favour when I discovered that it was rather too washable; pity, because it's lovely. After many months of sticking to the same inks (mostly to use up the ones that failed in similar comparisons), I took some of my most reliable pens and inked them with the new candidates. In the scan (which seems quite true on my computer), Akkerman Vermeer's Kobalt Blauw and Blau Permanent are used to define the boundaries of my search.The comparison is primarily between Visconti Blue, Diamine Blue Velvet and Pilot Blue. I had expected more from Pilot Blue. In comparison to the others it appears rather watery. Blue Velvet is impressively bright and clear, and when Visconti Blue is compared to it I can see a hint of a sheen in the latter. Not been into sheens, I therefore decided to replace Visconti with Blue Velvet. So I'm off to fill pages with the Pilot and Visconti blues. It's nice when one has to use up such good inks.
