Rohrer & Klingner Alt-Goldgrün Ink Is Special2013/10/08
Rohrer & Klingner Alt-Goldgrün is special and here is why.
The turquoise ink, Sailor Sky High, looks very pretty next to Alt-Goldgrün. Note that it does not separate into color components though it does look quite brilliant. Alt-Goldgrün is not unique, but it is uncommon in revealing its true colors. Inks that separate in this fashion have a depth that gives them special appeal and often a very loyal following.
Rohrer & Klingner inks are carried by Jet Pens and several other online retailers, but the company website is worth a visit, too. They have been in business for over 100 years. Their products continue to be made by hand and with the exception of Sepia, the writing inks can be mixed to create additional colors.
My only quibble is that the caps can be ill-fitting. Not a deterrent if you keep bottles in the upright position and insure the cap is free of ink. Otherwise, a bit might drip down the side of the bottle. Folex rescued my carpet so no permanent damage was done.
My collection includes nine of the eighteen inks of which four or five would be on my list of favorites. That is high praise indeed.
