    Default Ink Review: Rohrer & Klingner sketchINK Frieda

    Rohrer & Klingner Leipzig-Co. makes many excellent quality inks, and has been making inks and more in Germany since 1892. A renowned ink maker that doesn’t seem to be mentioned as much as some others.

    Today I’m reviewing another one of Rohrer & Klingner’s Sketch Inks: Frieda. These sketch inks are nano-pigmented inks, so the usual warnings about not leaving them in your unused pens for long periods, and exercising good pen hygiene should be followed.

    Frieda is a subdued blue-grey ink that leans slightly towards a light teal. Quite similar to Sailor Seiboku. It’s not a saturated ink and exhibited a little shading but no sheen. I liked writing and trying to sketch with it. It wrote with very tight, crisp lines, as is common with pigmented inks, and it dried very quickly on my Clairefontaine Triomphe paper. It’s lightfast and completely waterproof when dry, but while wet can be mixed with water to make a really good wash onto the paper. For sketching those are excellent features.
