Seitz-Kreuznach New Colors !



Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts

So, our friends from SEITZ-KREUZNACH have release a few new colors:

 

  • Lime Green
  • Indian Summer
  • Cognac
  • Cinnamon Brown

 

Actually, there is a fluorescent yellow, but since I am not interested in highlighter inks, I didn't bother with that.

 

They have also release a new bottle size the extremely cute 30ml ... similar to the Kaweco bottles

 

Lets start with some pics...

My thoughts: I like them all.

 

  • Lime Green: Very similar to Caran D'Ache Delicate Green. Les saturated than Robert Oster Lime Green. Wet flow, no show through or bleed through.
  • Indian Summer: Goes down very bright, dries with a reddish tone... Kind of Terracota. Wet flow, no show through or bleed through.
  • Cognac: This is my color. I do like these kind of hues. This one is very direct, no green undertones or gold... just a nice light brown. Wet flow, no show through or bleed through.
  • Cinnamon Brown: Another favorite one, I do like my browns. No red undertones, it looks richer than Cognac. Wet flow, no show through or bleed through.

I did not see much shading, but in honestly my pen is a wet flex nib. Maybe in a drier nib. ;)

 

(Correction: I was expecting much more shading.. Cognac and Cinnamon are my favorite. I did not see sheen, not even on Tomoe)

 

 

Hope you enjoy the pics..

I love the Cognac, I like the Cinnamon... The other two are not bad, of course, but I couldn't really justify buying a bottle. They wouldn't get much use.

 

Weird, as I don't agree with Visvamitra this time. ;)

Love the pics! Indian Summer looks like the darker cousin to Rouille d'Ancre (sp? too lazy to look up, it's Sunday morning), and more readable but it doesn't look like there is a lot of shading there, but it does look like there is good shading with Cognac.

Nice introduction/presentation of yours! Thanks!! Good ol' 4001 bottles. Whether they (the bottles) are all that liked here or not, I'm all for them (30 ml for 4.99 Euros) and all against the 100-ml schnapps bottles (for 9.99).

Hi,

 

Ah me.

 

Oh my.

 

Please - no more teasing.

 

It seems you know I'm ticklish.

Cool review C - I believe only Lime Green is interesting for me. How about lubrication, do they glide on paper?

 

 

Not sure about that one. I have it in a very wet pen, and the inks are quite wet. Flow is good, but I can tell lubrication when in drier pens.

 

I find Lime Green too similar to Everglades Snake Ink, Caran D'Ache Delicate Green and Robert Oster Lime Green, and ... I am sure there are more. Is a must have if you live in Europe ... no need to order from Australia or pay 5 times the price. ;)

Why was this move to Inky Thoughts???... If anything ... it should be in the "Ink Comparison" Forum.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

 

I ordered these last week, except for Lime Green, which I have covered with Akkerman #28 & Bung Box HAPPINESS, for my "Spring Start" after a dreary winter slush. But ordering inks without even a sample is always a gamble & this time it seems I will be very happy with my forthcoming inks.

 

You are always "in the know" for inks I like.

Thank you, Claudia for this review.

 

I have Cognac and Cinnamon, and knew in advance they were to my liking: they are. I hesitated, and decided not to order Indian Summer, feering it would be too orange for my liking. Seeing your ink swabs, and writting with it, I will.

Thank you :)

Thank you, Claudia. These are very nice reviews. I am interested in the Cognac, though it looks a bit like KWZ Honey, which I have.

KWZI Honey has a more dramatic shading.. (from gold to caramel to light brown).. but I know what you mean. ;)

Thank you!

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

Great review! I really like the Lime Green and the Indian Summer. Of course the Cognac is nice as well.
