This is a review for Kaweco Caramel Brown ink. This is the latest shade of brown from Kaweco. The previous brown was called Earth Brown and it's darker. You might still find some older bottles of Kaweco Earth Brown ink and the older ink boxes are a darker brown colour. You can tell if you have one of the newest bottles because the name of the ink is now printed on the box. It's also on the cartridge packs and Kaweco branding is now on each cartridge.

 
This is a pretty shade of brown ink. It's not too dark, or almost black and I like it for that. However, I found it quite dry in the Kaweco Dia2 pen that I tested it with, despite the fact that I left the cartridge in the pen for a few days to ensure that the feed was saturated enough. It felt dryer to write with than the Midnight Blue and Ruby Red inks that I have already reviewed from Kaweco.
 
You might still find some older bottles of Kaweco Earth brown ink. The inks are a fairly similar colour.
 
This ink isn't waterproof, and it doesn't stain fingers.
 
Kaweco ink is made in Germany. It is available in 30ml bottles or packs containing 6 standard international sized cartridges.

On Gmund cream 170g and M&K 90g white embossed paper, using an Pelikan Celebry F nib, my color is a tad lighter....still well caramel. It shaded on both papers.

On the white paper was a tad of a shift to red, not seen on the creme paper.


German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

The cheapest lessons are from those who learned expensive lessons. Ignorance is best for learning expensive lessons.
