Ink and Pen Notes: Edison Huron Grande with Extra Fine Nib and R&K Blau-Schwarz LE

Edison Huron Grande Extra Fine Nib and R&K Blau-Schwarz LE ink

Rohrer & Klingner Blau-Schwarz LE ink is the standard ink for my desk pens and one is usually always inked up. The Edison Huron Grande was inked up back on December 7th as a eyedropper fill. It went dry once but was immediately re-inked. I decided to clean it out this time and give it some time off.

I’ve never had a problem cleaning this ink out of a pen and this time was no different. It’s one of my favorite inks based on both color and performance. At the moment I don’t have it in and fountain pen and I’m already going through withdrawal.

Despite the size, it’s easily the largest pen in my accumulation, there’s no metal (other than the nib) so it’s nice and light so long writing sessions aren’t a problem.

The fountain pen and ink combine for a nearly perfect writing experience, at least for me. The only problems I had was a couple instances of a drop escaping from the nib when it shouldn’t. It was never on the paper and always when reaching for something with the pen in hand.
