Hello  All…    This is the highly anticipated KWZI – Group Buy !!!

 

The Ink Master:

 

Hi, I am Konrad.  I love writing with fountain pens - I very often just scribble whatever comes to my mind, just to relax. I'm quite sure that many fountain pen users do the same as me. 

 

I'm a chemist, both from passion and profession. I always tried to use fountain pen to write notes in my laboratory, but in my work, I always use vast amount of water, organic solvents and etc.  So from time to time I accidentally smeared a page with wet hand, or spilled chloroform on journal.  I kept looking for waterproof inks - and I came on Iron-Gall inks, I was charmed with them, how they change the color and how they look after some time.   I made my first ink - which was pretty simple and wasn't too god, but I got the idea that I can make ink of whatever properties and color I would like.

 

I had made my first ink two and half years ago, and during this time I came quite long road, from most basic inks to some quite fine and complicated formulas. My addiction with fountain pens (let's be honest with ourselves ;) ) moved a bit from looking for perfect fountain pens to looking for perfect dye composition, correcting flow and other properties in my inks.  I have to be honest that after ~80 trials with one specific ink, and it still wasn't stable I wanted to throw everything out the window.  But something around the 90th trial it worked! :) Today I have quite large number of inks of different types in many colors - and I haven't said the last word. 

 

So I'm Konrad I'm addicted to inks and I want to show you my work :)

 

 

This is KWZI first Transatlantic Group Buy, but it won’t be the last.   If your favorite color is not available today, do not despair.  Konrad is busy replenishing his stock and old and new colors will be available for future Group Buys. 

 

Price: 

 

Standard Ink (60ml):   $10 USD 

Iron Gall Ink (60ml):    $12 USD 

Shipping:  Overseas Shipping is built into price.  You will only be charge for North American shipping.

 

 

Please select the number of bottles you are committing to buy on the form linked below.

We have very limited number of ink colors thus, we have limited the amount of bottles you can buy per color. 

 

The Form:

 

--------  CLOSED ----------

 

PLEASE NOTE:  We diligently try our best to update our stock as quickly as possible.  In the case you placed an order before we could declare a color Sold Out, you will only be invoiced for what we can ship to you.

 

 

Timelines:

 

The List will be open until 100 bottles are sold or by September 30th.  Whichever is first.  

 

The ink will be shipped and should reach the US by mid October.   Barring any mishaps and/or postal delays, buyers should be getting their inks starting the end of October.

 

 

 

 

If you have ANY issues/problems with this form, or any special requirements to discuss, please do not post in this thread… send an email to KWZI.Inks (at) Gmail (dot) com

 

 

This thread will be use to keep you abreast of development and to share milestones; when the list is close, when to expect PayPal invoices, when the ink is on your way… etc.

What about European buyers? Seems rather disappointing for those actually nearer to kwzi. Unless of course my two emails to Konrad simply disappeared.

Happy for those in North America though!

This was really fast:)

If there will be enough time before shipping, than one or two of those inks might magically appear in your box ;)

Ink making is simply too time consuming and I have PhD on the finish :(


I have a lot of tape - and I won't hesitate to use it!

Thanks! and never fear, I think I was the last one to get in on the open list, so I was still lucky!

Really looking forward to this, and if there's a chance to get #23 especially, I will be on cloud 9...

Thanks team Kwzi for doing this. Wonderful work.
