Review Of Kwz Grey Plum

Recommended Posts

Correction added on 26 April 2017: I ordered new samples of KWZ Brown-Pink and KWZ Grey Plum and confirmed that the ink used in this review was in fact Grey Plum. Originally, the title of this review was "Review of Kwz Brown-Pink" before it was changed to "Review of Kwz Grey Plum". I posted comparison swabs in the comments to show the difference in the inks.

 

As noted in the comments, it is possible there was a mix-up with the inks, so this could be a review of KWZ Grey Plum and not Brown-Pink. I don't have Grey Plum, but I'll get a sample soon to compare the two. In the meantime, be aware that this could be the wrong color. Here are links to Visvamitra's review of Brown-Pink and White_Lotus' review of Grey Plum.

 

I'm going to add that KWZ has great customer service.

Thanks for the review. That looks like a really nice purple. I wish it had more shading but I still think I might have to pick up a bottle. I love purples, especially the darker ones - JH Poussiere de Lune on a wet nib is my current favorite. I missed out on Lamy Dark Lilac, unfortunately.

I like the colour, especially in the broader nib examples.. It reminds me a bit of Robert Oster Dark Chocolate, another one where the name doesn't quite (to me) match the colour. I'd have like a bit more shading too. Thanks for the review.

Hi julia 239, thanks for a great review. It seems to me that this is a test of Grey Plum though and it is possible that you have a mislabelled ink, as we had few accidental swaps within the batches numbered 091016 of Grey Plum and Brown Pink. We thought we had replaced all the mistaken ones, but it seems we owe you a replacement too! I'll contact you by PM.

I was wondering how this could be Brown Pink. It doesn't look pink or brown. Grey Plum makes much more sense. I'll have to check my stash & see what colors my bottles are.

Julia, great review! LG thanks for the comparisons.

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

Well Julia's review matches my experience. The Brown Pink I used before looks like her sample.

 

Here are my splash cards of these two inks:

Thanks for these. I think mine is Brown-Pink, but I'm getting some Grey Plum and another sample of Brown-Pink to make sure.

I received a sample of Grey Plum and new sample of Brown-Pink, and Agnieszka was correct - my review was of Grey Plum (not Brown-Pink). Sorry for any confusion.

Hmm, looking back on my ink journal and my sample of brown pink from Vanness is looking a little grey plum-y. I have a vial of the grey plum sitting somewhere so I'll have to do a side-by-side swab. I loved the ink, regardless of which hue it ended up being!
