Rohrer & Klingner Dokumentus Ink - Braun

I love R&K inks. I picked up a few bottles while in Germany before they were widely available in the US. I'd like to try some of these.

 

I see that they are available from Anderson Pens here in the US - anywhere else?

Goulet Pens has the regular inks, but not the Documentus line. Vanness has them as well (including carrying the Documentus line); some of the other pen & ink online retailers might, (but I mostly haven't shopped at them so I can't say for sure).

How does this colour compare with R&K's sepia? On my screen, they look quite similar.

Yeah, I'm interested in that as well. I'm in love with R&K Sepia, but don't know if I should jump to buy this one.

It's been a while. Can anyone give a little comparison of RK Sepia and Dokument Braun? If they're similar than I'm sold.

Sepia is darker and more reddish brown, the dokumentus braun is more greenish brass colored. Btw, the Sepia is rather resistant against water and light as well.

Here are two pictures of Documentus brown and sketching Lilly.

Samples were done on Midori MD 10th anniversary notebook.

The two inks seem to have the exact same color.

Thanks, Andreas! That helps a lot. R&K Sepia is my go-to sepia for use in vintage pens due to its good water resistance and easy clean up, but I was always hoping for a similar shade that was 100% waterproof to put in modern pens.

Thanks, inking! You aren't kidding...those look exactly the same! I guess that's good to know for those living in places where the Sketch inks are more readily available than the Document inks.

Do the two inks - Dokumentus Brown and SketchInk Lily - also behave the same? Flow, showthrough, feathering, lubrication, etc.

In my experience yes to all your questions. Good lubrication no feathering etc...

But i don't know for lightfastness waterproofness that sort of thing that i don't care much for.

A bit of a revival of an old thread, but I'd like to comment that Lilly (at least I think it's Lilly - it's one of the brown greens) is also exactly the same as the Super5 green.

Super 5 inks are made by R+K.
