Rohrer and Klingner Smaragdgrün

This is another one of those inks that I personally find addictive. I ink up a pen, and end up constantly using it,until i can convince myself to stop re-inking in the same colour and start rotating inks again.

The name Smaragdgrün means emerald and as you can see in the images it’s a pretty accurate description of the colour. Colombian emeralds to be even more specific, and somehow they’ve also managed to add some of the same glowy depth. Then again I really love this colour so take this review with a pinch or two of salt.

You’ll also see that I spelt Smaragdgrün wrong:( I left out the d. What can I say – spelling has never been my strong suit. I’m pretty sure auto-correct was invented because of people like me.

Like all Rohrer and Klingner inks, this one is beautifully behaved. No feathering, bleed-through, dries relatively quickly and the shading in my 6mm Pilot Parallel is just so prettttty, and the sheen – look at that red black sheen… K i’ll stop now.

And I don’t know why this happens, but its the second ink I’ve tried where that the shading line looks very different to the shading in the calligraphy. Any ideas?

Water resistance is non-existent but this also meant that cleanup was super easy. Decided to do some colour chromatography with this one –  and was immediately reminded of a Nebula.

    Dear Miss,

    I’m so delighted to have found your reviews about fountain pens and ink. I was looking for review for R&K Old Golden Green and came across of this review. Your handwriting is as beautiful as the ink itself. 🙂 May I ask what pen you used to write the Emeralds in bold?

    Thank you in advance and best regards,
    Sincerely,
    Spookuur
