    In the end I won't be getting the Honey, it doesn't seem to be different enough to me.

    Kwz "olive" Mixes

    I am really enjoying using KWZ inks (other than the vanilla scent), and I've been looking into finding my perfect olive green ink. One of my requirements is good water resistance -- it does not need to be 100%, but the writing has to withstand being touched with damp hands or a small spill and still remain easily legible. I hoped KWZ I.G. Green Gold was going to be it, but when my bottle arrived, I've found that it's really more like a somewhat olive-leaning dark green. Not a green-gold as one might imagine (or olive). In a moment of inspiration, I decided to see what will happen if I mix I.G. Green Gold with KWZ Honey. Honey is a translucent and "layerable" honey-caramel color that can shade to off black if piled on. I.G. Green Gold is a very saturated low transparency ink. Both have silver sheen outline, but I.G. Green Gold just barely a hint of it, whereas Honey sheens silver around the letters very easily on good paper. Here are my results. No precipitate or odd behavior found so far. I very much like the first mixture and will be using it from now on in an empty Iroshizuku bottle. KWZ "Olive #1" : KWZ I.G. Green Gold 3/4 : KWZ Honey 1/4 KWZ "Olive #2" : KWZ I.G. Green Gold 2/3 : KWZ Honey 1/3 Both together:

    Kwzi Honey Has New Formulation

    With the recent reviews by Lgsoltek of a couple KWZ inks I've been wanting, I checked out Vanness to see if they were back in stock. I noticed the KWZ Honey said new formulation. No information about what was different between old and new KWZ Honey. I have a bottle of the old formulation, so I'm not going to get a new one or even a sample just to see the differences. It may be exactly the same as the old formulation. Or not. Maybe someone knowledgeable could comment to rest the worrying minds of FPNers who love KWZ ink!

Herbin Orange Indien (7) Sailor Hachimitsu and (8) Sailor Apricot on Strathmore Watercolor paper http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ0675.jpg http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ0675-2.jpg Chromatography for Sailor Hachimitsu (top) and Apricot (bottom) For my purposes, these inks are identical in color and behavior. The chromatography is practically a mirror image! It appears from the washes that the Sailor inks are close in hue to Apache Sunset. However, this is slightly less so in real life. The Sailor inks are very saturated, approaching fluorescent, while Apache Sunset is slightly more earthy. Care was taken to ensure color accuracy, but in all things, perfection is unattainable. Thanks to migo984 and fireant, who requested reviews of these inks and supplied the samples!

    Sailor – Hachimitsu (Honey)

    http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ0618.jpg First, I'd like to curse thank fireant for sending me a sample of this wonderful ink. Alas, it is discontinued or I'd buy a bottle today. It likely wouldn't spend much time in my pen, but I'd put it to good use sketching and it is wonderful straight out of the bottle for pointed pen calligraphy. Here's an overworked persimmon. http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ0612.jpg Sailor Hachimitsu and Cigar on Strathmore watercolor paper. http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ0609.jpg Hachimitsu with Zebra "G" nib on Original Crown Mill Pure Cotton paper. Reasonable care was taken to ensure color accuracy, but with an ink this complex and fluorescent, perfection is impossible. If anyone has an unwanted bottle of this ink, I will gladly buy it from you.
