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.
- Blu Mare
- Blue Permanent
- Royal Blue
It’s time to re-review this inks.
Morinda used to be one of my favourite red inks before I tried some Sailor reds. I still happen to use it but not too often. The color is rather pleasant to my eyes. It doesn’t have any water resistance, but it cleans easier from the pen than most other red inks. It flows wet, shows a high degree of shading. It may cause feathering and bleedthrough on some papers.
