Pen: Lamy 2000, Binderized Medium Nib
Ink: Rohrer & Klingner Alt-Goldgrun
Paper: Rhodia dotPad, No. 16 – Top Spiral Bound
Notes: Pea Soup? Bile? I don’t know. I’ve this ink twice and I still don’t know how I feel about it. It performs well on Rhodia, but lesser-quality papers tend to feather and bleed quite a bit. I like how the ink looks on nice paper, and it dried nicely on the page. No hate towards R&K as a brand, but they have some borderline ugly inks. They also have some really nice ones (like Verdigris and Verdura). This color definitely isn’t for everyone, but if you’re looking for a unique ink with nice shading, then definitely check it out and make sure you have some good paper on hand. Another thing worth noting is that the ink is pretty thin (watery?) but when it’s in a pen with a smooth nib, you can really appreciate the nib.
Thanks for reading!
Also: All of the images in the review are clickable, and come up supersized. It takes up a lot of storage, but it’s worth seeing everything nice and close up!
