Rohrer And Klingner: Scabiosa + Alt Bordeux + Solfernino + Magenta

Recommended Posts

I've been digging through the 'Ink Review' threads and forums and I have not been able to find a comparison of the Rohrer and Klingner purples. Would preferrably like to see the difference between Scabiosa and Alt-Bordeux but figured it wouldn't hurt to include the Solferino and Magenta. If anyone has writing or swab samples for these inks, would you mind posting a photo? Thanks.

I recently tried R&K magenta. IT WAS BORING BORING BORING. I was looking for a written sample on the page, but can't find one. Did I mention it was boring? Especially if you were expecting a beauty like Solforino.

 

As for Alt-B, I've never tried it, so I can't give you any feedback.

It's not for me. I like vibrant inks that write wet. Scabiosa is dry and though it is pretty, if I'm using an IG, then I'm buying one from Konrad.

The only one I have a sample of is Alt-Bordeaux, but here are three others to help put it in perspective (sorry for the chicken scratch handwriting---didn't think about anyone else seeing my swatch cards at the time).

 

Overall, it's pretty flat and dull. :::meh:::

Why are there fourteen samples of dark plum ink on my desk? Because I still haven't found the right shade.

Is that a problem...??? : : : sigh : : :

 

Update: Great. Finally found one I love (Lamy Dark Lilac) but I can't get more. Ah, life in my inky world....

Thank you, I try and change them every other day or so, and repeat some of my favorites. That one is from Napalm.

Thanks PaperQueen.

 

Happy to help. :)

 

BTW, LuMA, your library of ghostly avatars have been a-ma-zing to peruse in the "ever-changing avatar" thread. Talk about talent...wow!

I love Scabiosa and use it every day. It shades wonderfully and looks so different on different papers that one might as well be using several different inks.

 

I haven't yet tried Alt Bordeaux but am tempted, given the samples I've seen. Does it shade?

Thanks for the comparison! I have a sample of Alt-Bordeaux, and I love it particularly in my stub nibs. It shades very nicely ranging from a deep burgundy to a pale wine. I also like the way the ink flows. It is a very well behaved ink. I actually just purchased a bottle of it.
