It's blue black week! I love blue black inks, and today's is Rohrer and Klingner Verdigris. I got this sample of ink from a sample swap, but you can find it for sale at Pen Chalet.
Verdigris is a beautiful blue black. It does have a big of green in it, but not enough that I would call it a teal.
In large swabs there is a little bit of red sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Feathering: low-there was some feathering in the flex nib on Leuchtturm paper.
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and just a little bit of bleeding.
Overall, I really love this ink. There is a bit of feathering on Leuchtturm when you lay it down really wet, but other than that it's pretty well behaved. I love the color and the wet flow, and it's only $12 for a 50ml bottle, which is pretty affordable for fountain pen ink.
