I didn't expect to like the color of this ink as much as I did.  I'm not usually a fan of pinks, but winter has me craving more lively colors.  I was afraid this would have too much orange for my liking, but it is a very nice blue-pink that is moderately saturated.  It performs very well & dries quickly.  The flow is average, but it is a little bit drier than other KWZ inks I've used.

Beautiful colour, great review and amazing handwriting, thank you! This one is tempting, although I don't need another pink. My go to are Iroshizuku Tsutsuji, Noodlers Saguaro Wine and J Herbin Rose Cyclamen. Not to mention Diamine Magenta.

But... One can never have too many pinks! 😀

I am a big fan of Raspberry too! Its a unique color that wouldn't let me do anything but place it in my ink collection! 


FP Ink Orphanage-Is an ink not working with your pens, not the color you're looking for, is never to see the light of day again?!! If this is you, and the ink is in fine condition otherwise, don't dump it down the sink, or throw it into the trash, send it to me (payment can be negotiated), and I will provide it a nice safe home with love, and a decent meal of paper! Please PM me!For Sale: TBA

NIce review. I too love your handwriting. The red ... Is not LOUD and OBNOXIOUS... it's just not dark and blue enough for the raspberries I used to pluck.

But is it loud and obnoxious enough for Amber?  B) 

Me, I can *definitely* see myself using this -- even if it doesn't appear to have much in the way of water resistance.  Thanks for the review.  And not....

Thank you for the review. Maybe not one for me as I have enough pink inks. I also like your handwriting and found myself trying to work out how you wrote your "a's"  :)

Tee hee hee.. I like it, but it's not LOUD enough or OBNOXIOUS enough for my tastes. I prefer retina searing inks.  Thanks Julia for the wonderful review.

You were right about how I make my "a's"  :) .

If I make my writing large enough or think about it as I'm doing it, there's an actual loop, but otherwise, it's just a slash.

I've been looking for the perfect pink, and this may be it. Beautiful color, not to pale, not too bright, not too red or orange or anything else. maybe a hair less saturated than I usually prefer, but I can see using this often.
