The crassest names for any certain ink color of any certain ink brand are like "blue", "red", better yet "brown"...... :lticaptd: :lticaptd: :lticaptd:.......

Hell no.

 

I always wanted to have my own line of inks, (wall) paints, nail polish, etc. with names like Cadaver Grey, Mucus Green, Urine Yellow, Morning Pee Ochre, Carrot Chunks Shimmer, etc.

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

Sure, but then what would you use 'em for?

Got an email notice a little while ago that Vanness has the R&K Aubergine LE in stock. I've ordered my bottle. Looking forward to it.

OO Very pretty

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

But I love the R&K ink names!

Seriously. Who can’t love “Fernambuk”, “Smaragdgrün”, or “Scabiosa”?

Don't forget the legendary Alt-Goldgrun

Alt-Goldgrün is the perfect ink for a white tortoise M400 or vermeil gold tortoise M450. There have been a lot of green inks appearing on the scene recently, but Alt-Goldgrün is still the best.

 

Now if Pelikan would just indulge us with an M650 vermeil gold tortoise . . .

Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

Thanks for the like Lapis, there is the Aubergine and a green I'd like to add to my R&K selection of 6-7 bottles.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

Considering the price of a good ol' 50-ml standard R&K ink (3.99 Euros) or even today's LE R&K (8.88) this company's ink should be bought before they (R&K) raise their prices....

You talked me into it. :blush:

 

Originally I'd already lost interest in acquiring this ink, but just now because of your post, I did a search in my mail app for 'rohrer' to see how much I paid (answer: €2.98, after discounts and VAT excluded) each for the R&K inks I bought from LCdC over Fountain Pen Day weekend, and was surprised to see LCdC's latest newsletter came up in the search – it's now carrying R&K Aubergine! Given that there are a bunch of outstanding items it has yet to ship to me from my FPD orders, I have ordered three bottles of this ink, to add to the next shipment effectively free of delivery charges. Net expense: €8.11 a bottle, or about $38 all up, as opposed to $83 delivered if I were to order three bottles from a local stockist.

Looks like very nice ink, and I ordered some against my no-more-ink pledge, but how "limited" is 2000 bottles of an ink from R&K? Do they sell more than that of, say, Leipziger Schwarz? At any rate, I think they make fine ink at a good price. Just curious.

Getting back to considering what a new MB Elixir Parfumeur costs, you could get 17 and a half bottles of any of the 20 R&K standards for the same price instead.
