    Best Dry Inks?

    I'm a fan of 'dry' (less lubricated) inks and over the last two years used exclusively the Diamine Registrar's/ESSRI, Salix and Pelikan 4001 blue black. Are there other similarly dry inks available? I would like to try something new, new colours and I'm not particularly concerned about permanency or its lack anymore.

    An Iron Gall Inquiry

    I have a question or two concerning Rohrer and Klinger's iron gall inks. The R&K website states that their iron galls (Salix and Scabiosa) are "archivally safe." They have to be...they're iron galls, right? Then how on earth do they fare so badly in lightfastness tests? Do they contain only a minuscule amount of iron gall? It seems they should perform pretty well. I'm just curious about an ink I'm falling in love with and must have a bottle of.

    Review: Rohrer And Klingner Salix

    Disclaimer: I don't swear by my scanner's quality, so I've tweaked the colors a bit. They look ok on my monitor, but mileage may vary, so I apologize in advance. I've actually used 2 pens for this review. Most of it is written with a Lamy Safari (f), but for the comparison with Scabiosa (in the water test part) I used a Jinhao x750 (m). The paper is finocam, a spanish brand that you may or may not have experience with. It's fairly good for fp use; line widths run true to size and there isn't any feathering or bleedthrough, although you can see some minor showthrough, which has been exace
  4. Hi all! I've been lurking on the forums for a while, but I finally decided to create an accout. This is a mixture I discovered not too long ago. Salix and Sky High are two of my favorite blue inks, but they each possess a couple drawbacks that kept me from using them as much as I would like. Salix has great shading and performance, but it is quite dry and can be a bit too pale for my taste. Sky High, on the other hand, is a wonderfully vivid sky blue with a cool sheen, but its extreme wetness ruined the effect with most pen and paper combinations. So, one day I had the wild idea to mix them,

    Three Ig Inks

    THREE IG INKS Waterproof, bulletproof, all kinds of inks that can withstand abuse from human malice or carelessness, the weather, time; I read about them and fail to find the fascination. First of all, I like inks that wash off easily from my hands, clothes and pens. I'm not that accident-prone but when I used to carry a Pelikan M600 in by breast pocket, many were the times when the cap unscrewed by itself and the pen decorated me with large blue blots. If those blots hadn't washed off, I might have given up on fountain pens - or carrying them around, at least. Secondly, what's the use of re
  6. Hello all, Everyone's experiences and apprehensions with iron gall inks seem to be all over the place. The take home message is usually something along the lines of "if you exercise proper pen hygiene and use modern iron gall inks formulated for fountain pens, you shouldn't have an issue". I've followed this and nope, haven't had an issue yet. What I do get apprehensive about is the reasoning behind the iron gall cleaning routine. It seems you don't want the ink sitting in the pen for very long but the issue arises if you want to dedicate IG ink to a pen. For example what if one were to us

    Iron Gall Doubts

    Hi everyone: I've just registered into this forum as I have a doubt about iron-gall inks: I currently own a waterman carène, which is the best pen I have and has a great sentimental value, as it was given to me as a special gift. I'm trying to find a permanent ink for taking some notes i'd like to review on the future, and, from what I've read, iron-gall inks are permanent ones. I like the R&K Salix one, as I've seen it on this website reviews along with other inks. My doubt is: will my carène be harmed, or corroded if I end up using this ink? It has some kind of a gold cover on the
  8. Has anyone else noticed that a page written with Rohrer & Klingner's Salix takes on an aged look? A perfectly white paper comes out looking off-white and antique after the ink has cured. I suspect this is because the dusky hue of oxidized iron gall duplicates somewhat the impression of a clearer blue on off-white paper, but it's different somehow - more aged than exactly off-white. I wonder if it's also partly due to the way, as Sandy1 puts it, iron gall inks seem to reside behind the plane of the page. I think it is a great effect and lends a document gravitas; but I certainly wou

    Gah, The Waiting!

    i ordered a bottle of R&K Salix on Amazon, but didn't realize it was shipping from Germany. The wait begins! Any advice on staying sane during a long boat ride across the Atlantic?

    Rohrer & Klinger Salix

    These are my first ink reviews so I'd like to hear all suggestions how to improve them. I've got quite some inks in my collection already (most of them are samples but it's a start) and I will review some more in the future.
