Rohrer & Klingner Verdura [full size photo] – I was recently sent some of this Rohrer & Klingner Verdura (bright green) fountain pen ink to test out. [Please note, in no way does this inhibit the neutrality of this review.]
This ink is green, bright green. Reminds me of Ireland. I loaded the ink into my Pilot 78g Medium fountain pen. Right off the bat, I know this is going to be an ink I will maintain in my “ink-apocalypse” stash. I love it plain and simple.
On to the actually review… The ink worked right out of the gate, no issues with skipping, dry outs, feed issues. Worked like a champ. The ink does seem very dry. It goes on almost dry, you can see in the written review I couldn’t smudge the ink even at 1 sec. This Rohrer & Klingner Verdura is very bight, nice and vivid/bold like I like them. It doesn’t blind you which some of these bright greens tend to do. There was very little show through, since it dries so fast. Only a tiny bit of bleed through that I noticed on one of my test pages. There is a nice amount of shading and zero feathering.
If you are looking for something a little different, if you like greens… this should be a perfect ink for you. One of our VP’s at work saw me using it during a meeting and he had to try it out for himself. He loved it. Im trying hard to get him hooked on fountain pens. 😉
This ink, as well as many other inks and pens can be purchased from – my friends at Pear Tree Pens.
