Rohrer & Klingner Alt-Goldgrun – Handwritten Ink Review

Rohrer and Klinger Alt-Goldgrun Fountain Pen Ink Review 7Rohrer & Klingner Alt-Goldgrun

Handwritten Review

PenLamy 2000, Binderized Medium Nib
Ink: Rohrer & Klingner Alt-Goldgrun
PaperRhodia 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!

Nice shading all around.

Here’s some exaggerated shading (more pressure on the nib).

Smudge on the “o” – dry time isn’t that bad though, I should have been more careful.

Layered the heavier lines in the cursive section, the ink layers nicely resulting in a darker green color.

Very similar to Franklin Christoph’s new Olde Emerald ink.

  1. LOOOVE THIS INK. The first time I saw it (actually, the second, and third as well), I was like, this is a repulsive ink, why are people buying this? And then suddenly one day, I realized I was in love with it and I needed it. And now my bottle is running very low and I may need to replace it soon.

    1. It’s pretty great, I just don’t know if it’s bottle worthy for me. I wouldn’t mind re-ordering samples when they run dry if I miss it though!

  2. This is my current favorite ink. I just love how it shades between green and gold and has so much variation. I bought a sample on Goulet Pens’ website and almost immediately had to buy a full bottle just because of how much I loved it.
    Your tests and handwriting are so beautiful.
