    Default Rohrer and Klingner sketchINK® Frieda

    Rohrer and Klingner sketchINK® Frieda

    These pigmented inks are purported to be both lightfast and waterproof and are designed for sketching.

    For more details check Chrissy’s excellent review.

    Like other inks of this series, Frieda is wet. Dry time is on the longer side, it's for sketching after all

    I prefer this series with modern flex, where I get more character out of these inks. However, it is imperative to use pens with a good seal, otherwise you need dip your nib under water to keep it running again. I have had another one of this series in a Pilot Varsity for almost a year. The only times I had hard starts was when the pen was nib side up. However, in Lamy Safari/Ahab and many other pens it dries up if not used regularly.

    • Pen used: Noodler’s Ahab
    • Shading: Yes with flex
    • Ghosting: None
    • Bleed through: None.
    • Flow Rate: Wet
    • Lubrication: Nice
    • Nib Dry-out: Depending the pen. Needs well sealed pen.
    • Start-up: If not used it can dry out, in pens with high evaporation.
    • Saturation: Saturated
    • Shading Potential: Only in flex
    • Sheen: No
    • Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: None.
    • Nib Creep / “Crud”: None
    • Staining (pen): Did not recall
    • Clogging: Yes. If left in poorly sealed pens, yes.
    • Water resistance: Waterproof /Lightfast
    • Availability: Only in bottle 50 ml bottles.
