With this range that contains 18 tones of writing inks for fountain pens and quills, Rohrer & Klingner continues an old tradition of ink production. Apart from classical tones (including two iron gall inks), several new colours are available, that have been developed for the primary purpose of calligraphy. On a traditional basis, the inks are produced with inter alia modern raw materials.
These inks feature high-class, brilliant colourants, specially treated water and minimal amounts of additives. This well-balanced composition causes the optimal cappiliarity of the inks and the accordingly good writing conduct. It is suitable for fountain pens, quills and other calligraphy utensils.
On most writing surfaces (including paper) the ink adheres well and, according to its capillarity, quick. Each of the inks are treated with high quality, pleasant dyes, that feature both a high brilliance and a well-balanced intensity. The colours of the iron gall inks (Scabiosa & Salix) intensifies when it oxidises on the air; Hence, writings with those inks are considered permanent, the historical term being “archivally safe”.
In 1964 Pilot’s engineers created the worlds first Capless fountain pen. The high-quality mechanism in the pen allows the nib to retract inside the pen body, protecting it from harm while still looking incredibly stylish. 18-carat gold ion plating nib, brass barrel and body.
