Verdigris – Rohrer & Klingner

Rohrer & Klingner operates since 1892. At the moment it’s the fifth generation of the family that manages the company. I guess that after 122 years they know what they are doing.

R&K inks offer amazing quality for amazing price. In my country a bnottle of R&K ink costs 5-6 $. I know it’s a bit more expensive in America, yet I believe the price is still reasonable.

I find it interesting that Rohrer & Klingner seems to focus mainly on the content and not on the bottles. Inks come in industrial looking bottle taht is quite handy but there’s just nothing fancy about it. It’s surprising.


Anyway they offer eighteen colors, some stunning, some boring but all have good qualities and are easy to clean.

It’s time to re-review this ink. I’ll start with Verdigris. When I first bought this ink three years ago I loved it. Then, after few months, my taste changed and I stopped using this ink. Recently I’ve rediscovered this ink. This ink is very smooth and is a real joy to write with. Dry time leaves something to be desired, but it’s not terrible.

  1. Very Nice… I love R&K inks… I think they are very underrated…
    Everybody is running after super expensive 50 USD Sailor inks… but these inks are much much better proposition as compared to those super expensive inks…
