KWZI Rotten Green is a dark blue-ish grey that looks quite close to what is called a "dark slate grey". The ink writes very wet and smooth like all KWZ inks. Not exactly my kind of colour but I find it quite lovely.



(It looks just black in the splash.)








(Tomoe River)




(With water added it shows the blue tint more clearly.)

I really like this ink.  I've recently begun to become interested in black inks with just a hint of another colour, and I'm really captivated by this one.

Never had you down for liking this. Welcome to the "dark" side . . . :)

(Great review too)

A nice, as always, review. But I don't think this ink will be as dark as this in every pen. Maybe not even most pens. I usually never trust a swab, but yours looks very much like the ink does.

Many thanks for the review. I'm always attracted to such dark inks but it never works for me. I have still to find the pen / paper combination that brings out the colour out of the darkness.
