As some of you may know Poland is one of biggest exporters of cosmetics, furniture and fruits. But we also have inks. Or, to be more precise, one ink maker – KWZI. Konrad offers handmade inks in more than sixty colors. You can check his website here.

Liquid Words is LE ink brewed for participants of polish Pen Show 2017. The ink is heavily saturated and was available for short time and in limited quantity.
 
fpn_1528301865__lw2018_is.jpg
 
Flow: This ink is wet and dense. It flows well, I haven't experienced any hard starts or skipping..
 
Saturation: well saturated ink. There are stronger purples on the market, but for me, this level of saturation works fine.
 
Lubrication: good and pleasant.
 
Drying time: It can take a while, depending on the nib you use. 15-20 seconds on Rhodia, 5 – 8 seconds on absorbent paper.
 
Feathering: present on bad quality papers.
 
Bleedthrough: experienced only on Moleskine (crappiest paper ever)
 
Water resistance: nope.

That's a lovely purple - thanks for sharing it with us. I actually like it more in the Kaweco sample, where it shows up a bit lighter.

I think Mr & Mrs KWZI told us that if this ink is well received they’ll make it part of the regular line, but without the liquid words name and label.

I think this is a gorgeous ink and I’ll surely grab a bottle if it’s released as a regular!

I love it because it's my favourite colour (dark purple to purple-black, going on to aubergine). If "Liquid Words" -- a fantastic name -- incl. LE are to be revamped, what will the new (reg) name be??

I do not buy many inks, but I would buy this one if it were readily available.

Yes!! pretty please...

 

I would buy more than one bottle of this concoction.

It will join and probably go straight up to Nº1, in the purple options.

Others being used fairly regularly, Dark Lilac Mix (by Migo), Lavender Purple (MB), Suma Purple (Kobe/Sailor), Shigure (Sailor), Grey Plum (KWZ), Aubergine (DA)

Time to "pressure" Mr & Mrs KWZI into adding this to the regular line!

I would definitely want a bottle of this, no matter what they call it.  Can't have too many purples....

Is this a standard ink or an IG?
