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

Napalm, I'm noticing that my scan makes this ink look gray, but you've seen it, it's a DARK DEEP brown.

Yes, in person the KWZI is a very very dark brown (nearly black but brownish), and my scan of sheet 1075 shows it brown too.

It's interesting how different it looks on different paper. Sometimes (sheet #1179) it appeared almost black, while other times (#1073 and #1074) it seemed sepia-toned; and on #958 it looks a lot like Noodler's Walnut.

I believe it has something to do with scanner software settings - Amber is probably using "Document" which tries to make the background (paper) white and enhances contrast to make the writing easier to read, while I use "Photo", which produces softer, less vivid images but preserves more detail in both highlights and low lights.

I think it's both.... my scanner was set to photo but it isn't a great photo scanner.

 

The ink just really looks different on different papers. I like this brown a lot. It is super dark.
