Akkerman Dutch Masters 07 Rembrandt’s Karmozijn “Crimson”…wow that’s a mouthful. Say that five times fast. For the rest of this review let’s just call the ink “RK”. This ink comes in amazing 120ml glass bottles.
RK is a lovely dark red.
In large swabs there is a little bit of shading, but no sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 20 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Feathering: Low-there was some feathering in the larger nib sizes.
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was bleeding and feathering in all nib sizes.
I used a TWSBI Eco Blossom Red with a medium nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a slightly wet flow.
Overall, I like the color, and it has a good flow but due to the wetter flow there was a lot of bleeding and some feathering, so it works best on better quality paper.
