Akkerman Dutch Masters 06 Lievens Kardinaal Paars "Cardinal Purple"
5320 South Shackleford Road
Little Rock AR 72204
Akkerman 06 Lievens Kardinaal Paars from the Dutch Masters collection is a deep merlot red ink with medium shading. It dries in 60 seconds in a medium nib on Rhodia and has a dry flow. Akkerman ink originates in the Netherlands.
The original shape of the bottle, which is typified by the long neck with marble, derives from the thirties. In addition to the long neck, the bottle is characterized by the rounded shape and wide, stable base. The new 'Dutch Masters' bottle holds more than 120 ml (4.0 oz) and thus contains more than twice as much fountain pen ink as the "regular" Akkerman ink bottles.
By tilting the closed bottle the bottle neck itself with ink. When righted, the marble will fall vertically and prevent the ink to flow back. This creates a reservoir above the marble which is easy to fill, even if the jar is almost empty.
This deep bold red/purple shades nicely on fountain pen friendly paper.
