  1. 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... Front: Back:
  2. Noodlers applies the descriptors of archival and permanent to a variety of their inks. How do they determine this? Montblanc and other European vendors test to certain ISO standards, but Noodlers makes no mention of doing this. Noodlers does define freeze resistant, eternal, bulletproof and water resistant on this page, but no reference to archival or permanent. I'm writing up some family stories and genealogy and would like to think that the work would be around for many years.
  3. I'm trying to get an answer. So far, I'm getting conflicting one. I like the Optik paper in Black N' Red notebooks, and I'd like to use it for something of historical significance. It's not going to work if 50 years from now the paper is faded and crumbling. If the paper is "acid free" and "archival," then it's useful to me. So far, no official site for the Optik paper makes any claim at all. A forum post here from eight years ago reported that on Facebook some official from the company said it is archival. But I'm getting no genuine, reliable, definitive information about this. The pape
  4. Yesterday I had a science class where we were testing the acidity and alkalinity of different liquids. I saw that as the perfect opportunity to put the permanency of some "permanent" inks to the test as there were a few chemicals on hand. I had three inks on hand: Noodler's Bulletproof black, Rohrer und Klingner Salix and Parker Quinkflow ballpoint ink. The Noodler's didn't budge, while the iron-gall was obliterated by the bleach, and changed colour for the ammonia and hydrochloric acid, and the Parker ballpoint turned red with bleach and then faded some more, and hydrochloric acid life a blue
  5. This is my first review here. It was also unplanned, I just wanted to make a scan for another thread I was replying to, and it exploded into this handwritten review. Which is admittedly not the best, but I hope it is helpful to somebody at least because damn, it took a long time to scan in and resize all my pigeon scratch. There are scans, there are potato camera photos. I didn't bother with photographing all the pages I wrote because I think you guys can get the idea of what my terrible camera can bring across, and the scans are more readable. No colour adjustments anywhere for anything
  6. I have been looking for a suitable book do start my commonplace book in, and after some searching and thinking I decided to choose the Peter Pauper Press Universe Journal. I was attracted not only by the cover, but also the mention of "archival paper" being used in it. I received the book today, and seeing the general lack of information on Peter Pauper Press products in comparison to Rhodia, Clairfontaine, Tomoe River etc, I have decide to do a bit of an overview. The cover itself is supposed to replicate the the binding of The Universe: or The Infinitely Great and the Infinitely Little, w
  7. In seeking out archival inks... and scouring various web sites and reading about all sorts of things I'm still left feeling a bit befuddled - as googling can often do to a person. I think the three main issues are: Waterproofness, light fastness (UV resistant), and ph neutrality. What I've realized is that a lot of fountain pen people seem really worried about these things as they relate to their pens. As in ruining their pens with the pigments in waterproof inks, worried about a highly basic or acidic ink ruining their pens. I'm not so concerned about that. I like my pens but more imp

    Tomoe River Longevity

    Hello All, Just a random inquiry here. As my love affair with Tomoe River continues, I looked at another pristine sheet of Tomoe River in my Seven Seas Journal and can see the translucent areas on the paper, holding it up in front of a dark object. I'm wondering, does anybody know whether Tomoe River has archival qualities? Will the paper be around, decades, or centuries from now? A part of me wants it to self destruct, because I don't want my private thoughts to be around after I'm gone. But I don't have the heart to burn my journals or shred them to dispose of them forever.

    Iroshuzuku Inks

    Hi Guys! This is my first post but i've been reading a lot of content on this website since the past 2 months. I did search on the internet and on this forum but did not find any relevant information on this topic. I am wondering is the Iroshizuku ink can be used as an archival ink? I mostly use fountain pen for journalling and I would like to ensure this ink can be used for this and will be readable in 50 years from now. Do you guys have any information about it? I know these inks are supposed to be PH neutral but is it sufficient to considere these as archival safe? Thanks in ad
  10. I'm transcribing my family history into four Graphic Image albums to be handed down through the generations (similar to family bibles, for those familiar with the practice). Before jumping in, it's important to determine the best ink for this purpose. Needs to be long-lasting and resistant to show through or feathering. The book pages are acid free, with a very smooth finish. Ideally, I'd like to steer clear of iron galls since: Writing will occur in spurts, with periods of inactivity now and thenThe specific pen has yet to be identified---could be a gold nibbed Waterman using a converter

    Archival Inks Catalogue

    I have been looking for a good archival ink so I figured I'd share what I found. I linked them to a review of the ink in question. I am only aware of Noodler's archival inks, so if you know of others, please feel free to add to the list. I also only included the ones that are fully archival, not the ones listed as "partial" on their list. Noodler's Archival Inks: #41 Brown 54th Massachusetts Bad Belted Kingfisher Bad Black Moccasin Bad Blue Heron Bad Green Gator Black Black Eel Blackerase Blue Ghost Dostoyevsky El Lawrence Empire Red Esenin Fox Heart of Darkness Hunter Kung Te-Cheng Kuprin La
