  1. (All the writing was done using a dip pen, not the Aurora 888 Saturno that was merely acting as a paperweight while I took the photo above.) The degree to which iron-gall inks are water resistant vary greatly from ink to ink, even when they are in the same product line of the same brand. Sadly, KWZ Ink IG Mandarin does not perform very well at all, and barely surpasses Aztec Gold IGL (which stands for Iron-Gall Light) in that respect. Aside: I was a bit surprised to see Platinum Blue-Black sheen purple some prominently and evenly.

    Iron Gall Violet 3 - Kwzi

    As some of you may know Poland is one of biggest exporter of cosmetics, furniture and fruits. But we also have inks Hopefully more and more inkthusiasts know what the four letters - KWZI - mean. They mean good ink, saturated color. The fruit of the passion. You can check Konrad's site here. IG Violet no 3 is stunning colors - it starts as pink and than turns into strongly saturated and deep purple that I enjoy a lot. Good stuff.

"Wow, I wish I could get THAT ink".. but is discontinue/expensive/unobtanium .. etc So, here is the place where you should come and check if "THAT" ink has a Doppelgänger (look-alike, double, one who nearly or completely resembles another).. I will start... I will remind you, that even the same ink looks different depending on nib/flow/paper .. so these are examples inks with the same/similar hue.. that depending on your nib/flow/paper it might look identical..

    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

    Kwz Ink Walk Over Vistula

    I haven't done a 'quickie' ink review in a while, and some of my thoughts on the approach have changed in the meantime. Drying time: Long. Exceeds 30 seconds on Bloc Rhodia 80g/m² notepad paper. At 45 seconds (not shown), where the horizontal and vertical strokes in the digit '4' intersect, colour still came off and smudged readily. Water resistance: Mild. There's a fair chance you'll be able to read what was there before, after a minute or so under the tap or in a bath, but the colour that come off already dried writing into a water droplet or onto a wet cotton swab could well render that

    Brown No 4 (Baked Cherry) - Kwzi

They mean good ink, saturated color. The fruit of the passion. You can check Konrad's site here. Brown 4 is one of relatively new colors. To be honest I don't really like it - it has too much red - for a brown - to my taste. I also have a question to admins - given that KWZI Inks are in stock in two shops (Sakura Pen Gallery and Vanness) can I put reviews of the line in main ink revie

I always liked dark purples but disliked most of violets. It's hanged with time. At the moment I'm quite keen on these hues. I've included 60-63 inks here (the number differs on different papers, I didn't have enough samples of some inks, I've forgotten about one or two inks and haven't included them everywhere). There are some odd-looking inks here that aren't violet/purple like KWZI Blue L51 (I just had a small samp

    Blue/black - Kwzi

They mean good ink, saturated color. The fruit of the passion. You can check Konrad's site here. KWZI Blue /Black is dark and deep blue black. On some papers (absorbent ones_) it may look greyish. I'm not that much into the genre but it's well lubricated and writes well. As it's standard ink it has no water resistance. Ink Splash http://imageshack.com/a/img540/9818/GeK1JP.jpg So

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. 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, t

    Kwzi Inks

    Just ordered these three inks from Massdrop - KWZI Brown #4, El Dorado, and Pine Green. Does anyone have experience with them. I have a couple of milliliters left of Levenger Pomegranate. Was curious if Brown #4 is similar (if anyone has experience with both). I saw in a review of Brown #4 that it is kind of a red/brown, which triggered the question. For those that have the others, what other inks would you compare them to?

    Kwzi Brown #4

    There are four KWZ inks having "brown" in their name: Brown #2, Brown #3, Brown #4 (this ink), and Dark Brown. These are the warm browns, the red-leaning ones, that some people don't like. That's not an issue for me so long as it's a nice color, and the handling is how I like it in my pens. Each has their own qualities in handling and appearance, however, only one of them, #3, is actually a brown to my eyes. With this preview out of the way, let's look at the individual inks. While the color of this ink is not quite brown, it's a very good color. I think visvamitra likened it to "baked cherry

El Dorado is one of two new KWZI inks (the other one being Aztec Gold) First let's look at the bottle. The ink is wet and lubricates the nib in a satisfying way. I haven't observed any feathering or bleedthrough. Drying time is reasonable. The main issues some people m

    Kwzi Ig Blue #4

    Ink Review - KWZI IG Blue #4 KWZI inks are developed by Konrad Zurawski, a Polish chemist and fountain pen enthousiast, who started in 2012 with his own line of inks produced in an artisanal manner – i.e. handmade in small batches with lots of care & craftsmanship. The KWZI IG line consists of Iron Gall inks, that darken over time and are waterproof. Since I was looking at waterproof inks for use at work, I decided to give Konrad’s IG inks a closer look. Be advised that Iron Gall inks require more care from the fountain pen user in comparison to standard inks. Practice good pen hygiene!

    Kwz Blue-Black

    Blue-black inks were one of the most common inks in my original collection. To me there wasn't much else to get other than a black ink and a couple blue-blacks. Done. Right? That was a long time ago, and blue-black inks came into the collection, but they were quite dark. The KWZ Blue-black seems kind of ho-hum in comparison. It's not really dark at all. It's middle-of-the-road dark. But it does have a very vintage look to it, it shades very well. Usual KWZ flow and lubrication. This ink dries quite fast on absorbent papers, and was quite decent on Rhodia where more saturated inks can take 20

For Scriptus 2017, show participants will be able to get “150 Confederation Brown”,crafted to celebrate the 150 years of Canada becoming a Confederation (proclaimed on July 1, 1867). I received a sample of the ink and since Claudia revealed the name of the ink and it's no longer top secret I'll share my scans and thoughts. The ink is saturated and it has interesting hue that's highly paper dependent. On some papers it's more bro

All gone within the first 45 minutes they went on sale. If you are still looking for your grail ink, I'm so sorry, but it came and went and you didn't get any. Unless you have a bottle of this. And when it's gone, your grail will be gone too, and you really won't have an inky life worth living. This is the best KWZ ink evah. EVAH I tell you! I'm trying not to exaggerate. Really I am.
