P.W. Akkerman Dutch Masters Collection - Lievens Kardinaal Paars P.W. Akkerman Den Haag Akkerman is a very noble supplier of the finest stationery and writing equipment from all around the world, offering their services all around the world. When I wrote very noble... I mean very noble without exaggeration… There are many companies that supply noble stationery but there are only few who supply the truly noble The Hague Passage which dates back to the early days of the Belle Epoque is a fitting residence for a company that personifies Noblesse Oblige at it’s finest just as the city of the Hague is the epitome of Dutch Noblesse oblige. https://denhaag.com/en/location/428/passage The Hague is not only the seat oft he Dutch parliament but also home of Dutch house of Royals where King Willem Alexander van Oranje-Nassau resides. As Hofleverancier, purveyor to the House of Royals and who knows how many ambassadors from all around the world, Akkerman can truly state that it supplies the world‘s finest with the finest in stationery The inks and the bottles The ink bottles Having a look at the lovely Akkerman Ink bottles it is hard to believe Akkerman only started supplying inks under their own name as from 2010 Well with ink bottles it is like with fine wines… “good wines need no bush” There are ink companies that supply normal inks in noble packages which it is like watering in crystal wine bottle… The bottle thrills, its contents taste like something one definately needs to discard of soon. Without being to philosophical, I truly believe that true nobility is an inner value. Therefore, it is is a pleasure to know that Akkerman’s heavenly Inks are served in such noble bottle which are a most beautiful reminiscence of the golden age of fountain pen writing… As I mentioned above, it is hard to believe that Akkerman started supplying their inks in 2010 only The Ink points 1-5 1 = 5= Fountain Pens: Online Germany 0,5 italic ; Diplomat Esteem m Paper: Waldmühle Reflex Premium Drying time: fast points 5 Flow: very smooth points: 5 Lubrication: smooth in both pens points: 5 Bleeding: absent) Points 5 Shading: medium none points: 3 Waterproof: will survive a drop points: 3 Package: One of the most beautiful points: Availabilty:https://www.vulpennen.nl/en/ Lievens Kardinaal Paars The Ink. This ink is a smooth and excellent writer. It does not even feather on even the cheapest paper. The Colour has something of the violet hues of an eggplant. It's violet being not to feminine for my taste There is some showthrough but it is not too strong. Feathering is medium till good. The drying time is very short under 3 seconds which maens this an excellent ink for left Hand writers Jan Lievens The Colour As I mentioned before the ink has something of the violet hues of an eggplant. More specific it is in the middle of this eggplat and the Colour of the ladies clothies in the pictures. Maybe the Colour of the ink, at first glance, is not completely similar to the Colour on the painting but it does come close. Down here is a colour comparison Conclusion Superb ink with a lovely Colour. I love the Colour it is not to feminin like the Pelikan and the De Atramentis Heather Violet are. It is simply beautiful The most lovely bottle, the quicky drying, the smooth writing and the lovely Colour make this ink a Work of Art.... I Love it
