Rohrer & Klingner (index page)

Sunday, August 23, 2009

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

Rohrer & Klingner inks feature high-class, brilliant colorants, specially treated water and minimal amounts of additives. This well-balanced composition causes the optimal cappiliarity of the inks and the accordingly good writing conduct. It is suitable for pens, quills and other calligraphy utensils. Economical and ecological reasons make piston-filler pens and
convertible pens particularly attractive. The convertible pen features a separate tank with a piston-filler.

On most writing surfaces (including paper) Rohrer & Klingner ink adheres well and, according to its capillarity, quick. Each of the Rohrer & Klingner inks are treated with high quality, pleasant dyes, that feature both a high brilliance and a well-balanced intensity. The colors of the iron gall inks intensifies when it oxidizes on the air; Hence, writings with those inks are considered permanent, the historical term being "archivally safe".

Nice. I have the Verdigris, in a Duofold with a medium nib just like yours (mine is the citrine). If you like interesting blue-green-black inks, you should give it a whirl.
