Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

Akkerman #24 Zuiderpark Blauw-Groen


This is an interesting ink. It's sort of a sea-green, I think, though it's named for a park. The ink sort of looks matte to me, though not the shiny-matte of a Sailor Kiwa-Guro.  I've used this ink quite a bit, and it seems to perform well on cheap papers and on fancier papers. There is a little bit of bleed and spread on the office paper sample at the end of the review, but it's not too bad. I didn't really notice it when I was using it.

Also, check out the chromatography on this one. It's awesome.

Thanks to Anderson Pens for sending this ink out for review!

Written Review!


I tried to capture some sheen in the picture below, but it's so very slight that it can barely be seen. You're unlikely to find sheen in this ink, though.

Comparison inks!

I really like green inks. This one isn't strictly green, but it's pretty sweet. 

Copy Paper Test!

 There's some bleed, some feather, and some spread in this sample. It isn't too bad, but it's there. Also, keep in mind that these are fine and medium nibs. I don't think it would do well on this paper with a broad (or wet) nib.

Get a load of this one. It might be my all-time favorite. Very cool mix of colors. 

Video Review and Water Test!

It's not the most water-fast ink around, but the water wasn't able to wipe out the text or the grid completely.

This ink is really interesting, and if you like the color you should go for a bottle. If you don't know about the color, or you're worried about the performance, then you should probably snag a sample. It's a cool ink, and not one that's easily duplicated.

Bottles at Anderson Pens are $29. (And these bottles are very cool and functional)
Samples at Anderson Pens are $2.

Thanks go out to Anderson Pens for supplying this ink sample for my review. While the ink was provided, all opinions and such are my own.
