Ink Review - Rohrer & Klingner SketchINK Vroni 

Rohrer & Klingner Leipzig-Co. makes many excellent quality inks, and has been making inks and more in Germany since 1892. A renowned ink maker that doesn’t seem to be mentioned as much as some others.

Chrissy here again and today I’m reviewing another one of Rohrer & Klingner’s Sketch Inks: Vroni. These sketch inks are nano-pigmented inks, so the usual warnings about not leaving them in your unused pens for long periods, and exercising good pen hygiene should be followed.

Vroni is what I would call a blue-leaning pink ink. It’s not a saturated ink and exhibited some nice shading. I didn’t see any sheen. I found it nicely wet to write with. Even as an unsaturated pink ink it was bright enough to be easily readable on paper. Not at all washed out or pale. It wrote with very tight, crisp lines, as is common with pigmented inks, and it dried quickly on my Clairefontaine Triomphe paper. It is lightfast and completely waterproof when dry, but while wet can be mixed with water to make a really good wash onto the paper. For sketching those are excellent qualities.

 

Start-up: Immediate.

Flow Rate: Very good - felt quite wet but dried quickly.

Lubrication: Very good - felt really smooth across the page.

Saturation: Not saturated.

Spread / Feathering / Woolly Line: Not seen. 

Show-through / Bleed-through: None seen.

Nib Dry-out: Not seen.

Clogging: Not seen.

Nib Creep / “Crud”: Not seen, even after several days in the pen.

Staining (pen): Didn’t stain my sections or converters.

Staining (hands): Washed off easily.

Water resistance: A completely waterproof ink.
