I've sampled all 47 of the KWZI inks that I got in a special shipment from Konrad.

 

I started by creating a color chart of all 47 inks. The chart is on Rhodia DotPad paper, was scanned in, and I did my best to adjust for color balance.

Next I devoted a Clairefontaine notebook to testing the inks. For each ink I used a Platinum Preppy 0.3mm, dipped into the ink vial. I tried scanning the pages, but the color balance wasn't working to my satisfaction. So I took photos, and included the 4 Sharpie Markers so that Photoshop's Auto-Level adjustment had some context to make a proper color adjustment.

This is amazing! Great Work! Thank you.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

I hope some day to grow up and be a real ink reviewer like you! Excellent job and clearly hours of effort. Thank you.

Breathe. Take one step at a time. Don't sweat the small stuff. You're not getting older, you are only moving through time. Be calm and positive.

Great work. Thank you.

 

My fave looks to be the 43 Dark Brown - I love what's left when washed away

 

32 Azzure No 1 has a certain charm about it too.
