This is the last of my reviews of Rohrer & Klingner inks, and I’ve got another great color for you. This is their deep purple. The scan is a little lighter than I’d like, but it’s the best I can do while still keep the color relatively true to hue.
If you’ve been reading my blog, you know that purple is one of my favorite colors of ink. I own a lot of them from many different brands. This one is rich in color, vibrant, and well-behaved. The only thing it’s missing is some water resistance, but that isn’t necessarily a deal breaker. As it compares to the other purples I have, I’d say it is closest in color to Diamine Majestic Purple (note the mistake on the card. LOL). I quite like it, and recommend it to the purple lover in your life.
I’ve really enjoyed reviewing the inks from this line, and I can honestly say that I like them all. This is definitely a line that deserves more attention than it gets.
- No feathering and bleed through
- Excellent flow and lubrication
- Dries relatively quickly
- Offers some shading on high quality papers like Rhodia and Clairefontaine.
- No water resistance whatsoever.

This ink sample was sent to my for review by Ryan at Pear Tree Pens. I am not otherwise affiliated with them. I’d like to thank Ryan for sending along the samples of these wonderful inks. I’ve really enjoyed testing them out. Many many thanks!
