  1. From the album: Ink performance testing

    Lamy Benitoite was also included at the end, because there seems to be some uncertainty and conjecture online as to whether it has any iron-gall content.

  2. From the album: Ink performance testing

    I couldn't stand how woolly and blobby some of the lines written with the tester pens look, especially in the actual testing pad and notebook (not Rhodia Dotpad) I'm using for the year-long experiment, and so I reground the nibs on all of the pens. Note: Colour correction — which usually makes the image darker overall — in GIMP was not applied after the scan, but I have included the reference colour patches from the same scan. I wanted to show you how dark Diamine Registrar's Ink looks to the scanner, without any doubt as to whether I artificially darkened it or increased the contr

  5. Something very strange has happened to my my Kwz Ink Maroon. As far as I know there were two versions of this ink and mine is the second release. I really liked it but haven't used it very much. A couple of days ago I inked up a pen with it and it was writing a little deeper on the brown tone than I remember, but still very much maroon in colour. A day later, the colour has changed to a rather dull rusty brown. This isn't an iron gal ink. I wondered if my ink logs of it were the same and checked and they were still a nice maroon colour. I thought that maybe there had been a contamination of in

  8. I recently learned that, for this year’s birthday, I get to import some fountain pen inks! It's still a couple of months away but I just couldn't wait. The problem being that I can’t try out any samples beforehand. The price of importing them wouldn't be worth it, for me. Which means I usually read a lot of reviews before buying any inks, and that has worked for me so far! This time, however, I’m having a hard time finding enough reviews. So I’m asking for help in figuring out which ink colors I want. I’m already fairly sure of the brand I want: I’ve always liked the idea of very resistant

  10. Grey Plum is one of those colors that I was most excited about in the recent Group Buy from KWZ Ink. The swab posted on the site was all I had to go by, and I admit, I wasn't thrilled by the color there. But I liked the idea of the color, and I like most of Konrad's more complex colors, so I gave it a try. Y'ALL. This is GREAT. Okay, so here's a review overview, with closeups and comparisons below: Right away, Grey Plum reminded me of one of my favorite discontinued inks, Sailor Chu-shu. There just aren't many purple-leaning greys out there. This is a swab where the inks w

    K W Z Maroon Ink

    This is exactly the color range that I adore. And the KWZ is really nice. There's some sheen on good paper. Excellent quality. Couldn't ask for more.

    Less "thought"; More "hey, Look!"

    Once upon a time in fpn, someone asked what was everyone's favorite ink color or what would it be if it didn't exist. I said, "harbor twilight." I wanted a blue of a darkening twilight sky that was also waterproof (or water-resistant). I've seen blue inks that have come close, but not close enough, until this ink - created by a Ph.D. chemistry student from Warsaw who brands his inks KWZ Inks. He and his partner sat at the table next to mine at the Poland Pen Show in Katowice, and if I had returned on Sunday, I would have taken a dozen photos and bought more inks. I can order the inks, thou
