I previously reviewed the Kaweco Brass Sport pen Here and Kaweco Summer Purple ink was the ink I used in that pen when I reviewed it.

 

This is a separate review for Kaweco Summer Purple ink. This is the latest shade of purple from Kaweco. Their previous purple ink was called Aubergine Purple and came in a brighter purple box. You might still find some older bottles of Kaweco Aubergine Purple ink. You can tell if you have one of the newest bottles because the name of the ink is now printed on the box. It's also on the cartridge packs and Kaweco branding is now on each cartridge.

Kaweco Summer Purple is a bright purple ink that fits it's name quite nicely. It flowed well across the page and lubricated the nib of the Kaweco Brass Sport nicely. It's a good quality ink.
This ink is water based, and isn't waterproof. It's quite water resistant though. It doesn't stain fingers.
Kaweco ink is made in Germany. It is available in 30ml bottles or packs containing 6 standard international sized cartridges.

I guess I've come two years late to this party. Thank you Chrissy for your thorough review of this purple ink.

 

On a three day stay in Toronto I visited one of my fave pen/stationary stores, Laywine's (no affiliation). Always on the lookout for purple/violet inks, I picked up a 30 ml bottle of Kaweco Summer Purple, put it away in one of my ink boxes & promptly forgot all about it.

Last night my wife asked me if I had any purple inks for Advent. The only ink that came to mind was R&K's Scabiosa, but I told her I'd check my ink boxes for a conventional formula purple.

This morning I looked in my stash & discovered the bottle of Kaweco Summer Purple. Now my wife's Safari (1.1) lays down a nice mid-purple colour with lots of shading potential. Hope she'll be pleased.

Tinta is the word for ink in Magyar (Hungarian). Though the Magyar is quite different from most Indo-European languages, it has acquired many words from Latin, which continued to be the official language of church & state till the early 19th century.

INTERESTING!!.. I am half Hungarian (father side)... but grew up in SouthAmerica, so very little chance to lean any magyar. ;)

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..
    • A Smug Dill
      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
