    Super5 Australia

    Super5 Australia Pigmented inks made by Rohrer and Klinger fo Papierlabor . They are lightfast and waterproof and designed for sketching, just like the sketchINK by R&K. The naming of this line is a bit haphazard, you can judge for yourself: Atlantic Australia Darmstadt Delhi Dublin Frankfurt They also have line of pens. The pens have a very good seal and the inks don't dry out in them, from what I've read. They are a shade darker in my experience of their sketchInk counterparts. Australia is shade darker than Jule and wetter. Australia is a nice wet ink. Dry time is the same as sketchInk inks. Meaning, if you use broad/flex/wet nibs and ink resistant paper the dry time is about 30 seconds or more and if you use F/EF nibs then you’re good. The price, however, is three times the amount of sketchInk. Very expensive for what is. • Pen used: Lamy Safari – Broad nib both sides • Shading: Yes with wider nibs • Ghosting: None • Bleed through: None. • Flow Rate: Wet • Lubrication: Nice • Nib Dry-out: Depending on the pen. Needs well sealed pen. • Start-up: If not used it can dry out, in pens with high evaporation. • Saturation: Saturated • Shading With wide/ flex nibs • Sheen: Not rally. • Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: None. • Nib Creep / “Crud”: None • Staining (pen): You might need a pen cleaner. • Clogging: Yes, if pen is not well sealed. • Water resistance: Waterproof • Availability: Only in bottle 30 ml bottles. Chroma: Midori Midori with an attempted sketch... The colour reminds of wine Broad nib full galore.... and inky experiment...on TOmoe River 68 gr Australia
  2. Hello everybody! It's my first time in this subforum, so please alert me if I'm doing something wrong. I have somehow accumulated over 20 different bottles of ink and 50 samples in the past two years. Love the variety, but some of these bottles don't get much use, and the ink in them just ages on my shelf. That's been bothering me a lot, since they're actually superb inks that just have had the bad luck of ending up in the hands of someone who doesn't appreciate them the way they deserve. So I'd like to send some of these out as big 5ml samples to anyone who's interested, in exchange for the same courtesy. I feel that that way, each of us gets to try new inks, and since everybody would pay postage, it wouldn't cost one more than the other.

  3. I saw Appelboom post about the pens in Instagram and my first thought was that they would be nice, cheap, simple knockaround pens. A better looking, sturdier Preppy. Something like a modern Morriset pen with added usability.* From the photo, it even looked like they were piston fillers with that ring at the rear of the barrel.** I followed the link and they cost $26. An older(?) version of them weighs more than an Al-Star so, no, they're not a German alternative to those Indian eyedroppers. Are they good? Has anyone tried them? Would I be better off getting a Prera, a Kaweco, a TWSBI, a Loom, or even a Nemosine? *What is interesting though is that the Super5 reviews I could find (of a similar looking pen but Appelboom calls the new one, well, "new") had a stub nib, which I imagine was carried over to the new colorways, and is now available in 0.5, 0.7, 1.0, and 1.5 stubs. **They're cartridge converters The photo below is from IG: appelboompennen and is the photo that first caught my eye.
  4. Hi Everyone, This is just a quick comparison I made of two shading orange inks: Super5 Delhi and Noodler's Apache Sunset. I was surprised at how similar they can look and the shading with both is impressive. The huge advantage, for some at least, of Delhi is that it's completely waterproof once dry! If you've been hoping for a waterproof version of Apache Sunset, Super5 Delhi may be close enough to fit the bill. My only complaint with Delhi as far as behavior goes is that it left pink stains in my TWSBI demonstrator that I still haven't been able to get out. Here's what these two oranges look like on a cheap legal pad: Some close-ups: And on 80gsm Rhodia: Rhodia close-ups: I hope this is useful for someone!

    Frankfurt - Super5

    Like most people I like novelties, especially when it comes to inks and fountain pens. You know - I've been looking for grail ink for three years and there's always chance it's still ahead of me When I came across Super5 inks mention on Goulet's site, I thought the bottles looked cool and - in a way - familiar. http://papierlabor.de/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/super5-ink-group-720x340.jpg The names of cities were cool as well. Colors looked really nice on swabs. My dear friend google helped me to investigate. Super5 inks are sold by Format-Darmstadt GmbH on papierlabor.de site. The company offers also calligraphy pen and converter and some papers. The inks are made by my second favourite ink maker - Rohrer & Klingner. Check their "regular" inks here. That's good news. Really. They know what they're doing and you can expect good quality from R&K. The quality they indeed deliver. So why Super5 inks are much more expensive than R&K inks. First of all - they're pigmented (I believe), then there need to be some margin for the distributor. At 20 euros / bottle yhey're not cheap. However unlike Caran d'Ache or Iroshizuku they offer not only more than satisfying quality, good flow and good lubrication but also added value of waterproofness and lightfastness. Last week I was given the whole set. I'm going to review it and post comparison of the full line. Soon. The colors are really great. Honestly. They're also extremely waterproof. I've already reviewed Atlantic, Australia, Darmstadt, Dublin and Delhi, check them. Today let's take a look at Frankfurt - Super5's brown. I like it.
