    Cool Rohrer & Klingner sketchINK Carmen

    Rohrer & Klingner sketchINK Carmen

    I was quite a bit excited when I started review. The colour seemed promising however, in the end the promising colour was due to a not so thoroughly cleaned feed.
    The colour is quite close to Super5 Delhi which I reviewed prior.

    I was excited when I saw the reddish blob in the chroma but in the end was disappointed by the colour. It’s another pure orange.

    Writing samples:
    As you can see the heading and the F nib is darker but soon after the colour reverted to what it should be.

    It's really ugly on copy paper.

    And finally a homage at the opera Carmen and the fatal flower that seals the tragic destructive relationship:




    · Pens used: Pilot Kakuno Ef, Stub , Kaweco Sport (EF/F/M/B,1.9), Kanwrite with an Ahab nib
    · What I liked: The name, reddish orange hint.
    · What I did not like: I prefer my oranges on the red side.
    · What some might not like: Dryish ink, nanopigment ink,
    · Shading: No.
    · Ghosting: With very wet pens and have handed writing. ..
    · Bleed through: Same as above.
    · Flow Rate: Medium
    · Lubrication: Dry
    · Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.
    · Start-up: No.
    · Saturation: No.
    · Shading Potential: Dismal.
    · Sheen: No.
    · Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: No.
    · Nib Creep / “Crud”: No.
    · Staining (pen): No.
    · Clogging: No.
    · Cleaning: It's a nano pigment ink. They tend to stick to everything, so you might need to use a penflush to be sure.
    · Water resistance: Excellent.
    · Availability: 50 ml

    Please don't hesitate to share your experience, writing samples or any other comments. The more the merrier

    Thanks, Yazeh, for pushing through the disappointment to bring us another fun review! The color isn't bad from the wetter applications, but doesn't compel me to shop... Nice flower drawing. Love Sr. Mouse enamored with Carmen-kitty.

    Glad, I spared you another orange I'm sure if you mix it with a bit of Klara/Marlene/ Frieda you can create enough murk-dom, but then why bother!
    Glad you like the flower and the Carmen Kitty!

    I love orange colors (especially when combined with dark grey background).
    But this ink is just ... not exciting.

    Thank you for taking one for the team, Yazeh!

    Thank you as always Yazeh. That's another one you've saved me (and I suspect many others) from.

    It doesn't detract from how much I like the artwork though - Kitty Carmen is delicious!

    I like orange. In inks, in clothing, et cetera. The color doesn't seem soooo very bad, but you know how I feel about nano inks, especially dry ones. Yet you managed to do something very cool with it. Thank you!

    I love the tulip and the scene from CarMeow. Olé, Yazeh!
    My other pen is a Montblanc.

    And my other blog is a tumblr!
