I'm not sure who makes inks for Levenger, but I must confess I enjoy them quite a lot. I've tried some of them and all were intense and intriguing. Pomegrenade is really stunning ink that I enjoy a lot. I've receivea a sample from one of FPNers and I'm hooked. Good stuff.

It's a timely coincidence that you posted this review. A friend is sending me a bottle from the US. I want to compare it to BungBox Sweet Potato Purple.

Excellent well saturated red ink. One of my favorites. I've always found Levinger's ink to be quite well behaved and enjoy using them.

Thanks for taking the time to review the Levinger Inks.

Does anyone know how it compares to Oku-yama? They seam as though they would be similar. This is really lovely. My favourite colour family for inks.
The praise of the praiseworthy is above all rewards.

Pommegranate is one of the best Levenger colors (and I like a lot of their colors)... I just did a quick comparison to Bungbox SPP and Okuyama.  BBSPP has more red. 

 

 

Vis.. thanks so much for another amazing review!!!...

Thanks for offering this observation about BBSPP comparison.  It was a BB ink I had wanted to try & then the whole Sailor supply for the US went berserk!  And strangely I have weaned myself from that obsession & discovered others to try.  But I am grateful to have had the opportunity to experience the BB's I did purchase when the "getting was good" ( & prices more reasonable!) I will just have to content myself with my BbspY &  Levenger Pomegranate.

I've tried three Levenger colors, or was it four? Anyway all of them were stunning.

Visvamitra, would you mind sharing what pen and nib combination you use for your ink reviews. I am always interested in how much shading you get.

Thanks

@OCArt - you'll find this information in every single review I post, just above scans (paper, pen, nib) :)

Best
