Rohrer & Klingner Pernambuco

Saturday, March 13, 2010

I bought some bottles of Rohrer & Klinger at The Writing Desk from the United Kingdom. Great shop that I can recommend to you.

The color is named after the Brazillian Wood called blood-wood. This plant has a dense, orange-red heartwood that takes a high shine, and it is the premier wood used for making bows for string instruments. The wood also yields a red dye called brazilin, which oxidizes to brazilein.

The ink flows great. Writing with it is a real joy. It flows great in every pen. I currently use it in my Montblanc 146 (fine) for accenting and highlighting my every day writing.

Written review
Can't read it? Here's the translation:
"Rohrer & Klingner Pernambuco

I filled my Lamy Safari (medium) with Rohrer & Klingner Pernambuco.

The color is named after a Brazilian Wood. It is a nice color. Like a mixture of light red, pink and a tiny bit of orange. It is not as vivid as Sailor Irore Red or Iroshizuku momiji but it is a nice red.

The ink behaves very good in this Moleskine. No bleed through or feathering. Very quick drying time. Also this ink has great shading.

The ink costs about $ 0,12/ml.

The Bottle
The bottle contains 50ml of great ink. The bottle is deep enough to fill fountain pens with large nibs.

This ink is Moleskine friendly. I had one Moleskine that showed a little bit of bleed through with a medium nibbed fountain pen. So I think you should place this ink between 100% moleskine proof and Moleskinefriendly.

With this range that contains 18 tones of writing inks for fountain pens and quills, Rohrer & Klingner continues an old tradition of ink production. Apart from classical tones (including two iron gall inks), several new colours are available, that have been developed for the primary purpose of calligraphy. On a traditional basis, the inks are produced with inter alia modern raw materials.

wow, gorgeous pictures and great review! I thought the name came from the Battle of Pernambuco, where the Spanish Armada fought against the Netherlands off the coast of Brazil. Pernambuco is a county in the eastern coast (of Brazil). Didn't know until today that it was a tree!
