Anyone else have SITB in a Rohrer & Klingner ink recently?

my approximately one and a half year old bottle of Verdigris came up with a mat of slime in it today when I went to fill my new Opus 88 Koloro :(

it had only been used to fill modern pens that haven't been exposed to degraded inks and I don't have any other inks showing signs of infection...

 

the good news is that J. Herebin Vert de Gris was an acceptable substitute :D

Twice in the last 18 months or so. One was a bottle of Alt Goldgrun, the other was Sepia. 

 

I got both bottles replaced, and was left with the impression that I was not alone.

 

(and I prefer the Herbin Vert de Gris anyway!)

Yes, just noticed that in a bottle of sepia a few weeks ago.

Hmm… that must be a problem involving recent distribution and/or purchase.   My R&Ks have never yet seen any mold or slime etc. and they are all old. Even up to 10 years old.

I guess I'll refrain from replacing that bottle for a few more months ...give the issue a while to be fully corrected.

 

as great as that color is, there are other attractive teal and blue-green/black inks out there (and in my collection).

 

thanks for the input @mizgeorge and @MCN
