  1. This time last year German ink makers Rohrer & Klingner introduced their first limited edition ink Aubergine. Right on cue the LE ink for 2019 has appeared - Kastanienbraun. This year R&K have conjured up a chestnut brown, or Maroon ink (as the company is mistranslating for the international market). No matter, since to my eyes it is neither a Chestnut nor a Maroon but rather a true brown, the colour of grandmother's cocao powder. Brown inks can be classified as Golden, Redish and the Dark Side. This one lies in the center with a slight tendency to the red. Even when the ink is showin

    Rohrer & Klingner Cassia

    Ink: Rohrer & Klingner Cassia Overall Impressions: A vibrant purple. I like the way it shades. The ink seems well-behaved; it doesn't take overly long to dry, and it flowed well in the pens I tried it in. Seems like a great everyday purple with some flair. Shading: Yes, with bigger nibs on most paper. On Tomoe River paper, I saw some shading even with an EF nib. The color ranged from a medium purple to a dark, eggplanty purple. Sheen: I didn't see any with normal writing, but there was a slight sheen in the drawing where I layered lines. Water Resistance: It is not water-resistant. Ease
  3. Rohrer & Klingner has recently released a "2018 limited edition" ink called Aubergine. As a big fan of their inks, I think they deserve more recognition for their wonderful inks. Solferino remains my top purple/magenta/violet ink with its retina-searing brightness and vibrancy. I've bought a bottle of this new Aubergine and I like it very much. Aubergine comes in a cardboard tube packaging and their regular understated bottle. I like their bottles because they are functional. The ink itself is a low-key yet gorgeous purple that leans to the blue side but never so much as to become a blur
  4. I've got a bottle of Alt-Bordeaux today and I'd like to compare it with Yama-budo, so here it is. The camera does a better job at capturing the red hue of Yama-budo than my eyes. With my bare eyes the two are somewhat similar, although the difference is still quite visible: Yama-budo is more vibrant, has more red hue; whereas Alt-Bordeaux is much more muted and has a vintage look. Yama-budo is like grapes (just like its name "Mountain Grapes") and Alt-Bordeaux is like red wine stain. And finally, let's not forget the amazing golden sheen of Yama-budo:

    Scabiosa Or Not ?

    Hello all, I am currently hesitating between wide posibilities about a great ink/pen combo for crappy paper. In fact I am planning to work everyday with this set : FPR Triveni Jr / Sailor Jentle BlueLamy Safari F / PR Fiesta red (to underline)Pilot parallel / ...? (for big titles) (at home) + This for crappy paper, and I woud like also for less big titles, so like this I will be able to have a pen for two different purposes (better for me and my wallet, mostly more convenient if the ink will be with the Parallel). The inks : I am here to ask you if Scabiosa would be a great c
  6. Hello, I have a few questions regarding one of my favorite inks...R&K Alt-Bordeaux. Over the past few months I've been using it and observing some weird characteristics for such a supposedly well behaved ink. For starters, it appears to slightly fade/change color over the course of a few hours, turning from a purplish burgundy to a rosy, raspberry-like color...which I also enjoy a lot, but which is lighter than the original. Secondly, and more disturbing, is the fact that this ink seems to develop nib crud after a few days, regardless of the pen being used or not. However, I found that I

    Rohrer And Klingner Helianthus

    This is an ink that I got a little while back as part of Ink Drop and I finally just had to force myself to use it. I am overall not super fond of very light colored inks like this because I don’t see much of a use for them in my daily life. Something interesting to note - the color that you see here is not the color that it had going down. When I was writing it was very light and I wasn’t exaggerating when I said that I was losing my place in the middle of a word. I wrote this review on Oct 7 and it’s now the 12th, so within the past five days the color darkened enough to make it much
  8. Hello, I was wondering if anyone knows any similar color to Noodler's El Lawrence. I am a big fan of murky/earthy ink colors (fervent user of Zhivago, R&K Sepia and Herbin Lie de The) and would really like to try out El Lawrence, but I can't find it in any EU store (although it's part of the UK series?!). From what I saw in writing samples, the color seems pretty similar to R&K Sepia, albeit a bit greener. What do you think? Thanks! Cheers, Dragos

    R&k Solferino Vs Magenta

    Hello everybody, today I decided to add 2 more purples to my R&K palette (already owning Alt-Bordeaux, Scabiosa, Sepia and Alt Goldgrun). I decided to go for Cassia and one more, but I really can't make up my mind when it comes to the difference between Solferino and Magenta. From what I've seen, there are more reviews for Solferino than for Magenta, which makes me think it's generally better liked. Does anyone have both? How do they compare in terms of behavior (staining - if any- , ease of cleaning, bleed/show through on regular, uncoated paper)? Thank you!
  10. Here today with another ink mix. Another pair of Rohrer & Klingner inks, this time Scabiosa and Solferino, 3:2. The resulting color dries dark enough to make it usable for taking notes and even doing homework, as long as your professors aren’t too picky. :-) It has the positive effects of the IG (water resistance, low feathering and bleeding…) while still being nice and vibrant. Speaking of water resistance, here are the results of the soak test: Like my previous partial IG mix, it remains readable after getting wet, though I certainly wouldn’t count on it being good for wri
  11. Hello! Here today with a quick overview of an ink mix I prepared yesterday morning. On the R&K website they say that their inks can be mixed without any negative consequences (except for sepia), so I decided to give it a try with some Salix that I already had and some Verdura that I ordered a sample of just for this experiment. They were mixed approximately 1:1, and the resulting color is a dark teal (ish). I did not do any color adjusting, but the scan appears pretty true to reality on my screen. Also, forgive my bad handwriting - my new VP is being a pain in the butt and skippin
