DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
Each glass bottle contains 50 ml of Rohrer & Klingner fountain pen ink.

Rohrer & Klingner has continued an old tradition of ink production since 1907. These inks have been developed over the years for the primary purpose of calligraphy, and are still hand made with modern raw materials.

Rohrer & Klingner inks feature brilliant colorants, specially treated water and minimal amounts of additives for a well balanced composition that results in beautiful writing. These inks are suitable for fountain and dip pens, quills and other calligraphy utensils.

The colors of the iron gall inks will intensify with oxidization (as it dries and is exposed to surrounding air), and these inks are considered permanent on paper and archival safe.

After researching reviews on this ink, and wanting to write all my letters using a dip pen I bought a bottle. This ink is superb, tolerates amost any type of paper without any feathering or bleed through. It's a joy to write with and the colour is pleasing to the eye.

many thanks,

This is truly beautiful ink, and I can't wait for R&K's two iron gall inks to be back in stock at JetPens (please?). It should be noted, for those not familiar with iron gall inks (IGIs): they are more acidic than traditional OTC ink, thus they can damage your fountain pens if you leave them inside. To avoid corrosion, simply rinse your pen or other instrument after using IGI. If you've refilled a cartridge with this ink, remove the cartridge and rinse your pen thoroughly. I prevent my cartridges from drying out by stopping the opening with a bit of kneaded rubber eraser. Store them upright in a repurposed cream container, such as Neutrogena or Origins. The lid further prevents exposure to air, and you can add a bag of cheap beads to keep one or two upright if you do not own enough cartridges to prevent them tipping over. Better yet, reuse the cute yet functional tin provided with a pack of 6 J. Herbin cartridges. Bleu Myosotis (Forget-Me-Not Blue) is lovely and in stock now at JetPens!

Smooth and relatively free-flowing for an iron-gall based ink. Beautiful color shift from blue to dark blue as the ink dries and oxidizes. Seems very safe in my pens, and washes-out as easily as any other ink I've used. Highly recommended.

Highly recommend.

I've run Salix Blue through two pens and I am pleased with how the ink performs. Easily becoming my go-to ink for journal writing. Behaves well on all grades of paper without feathering or bleed-thru. Delivers subtle shading. Dries to a nice blue-black. Best of all, it is permanent.
