Kwzi Liquid Words 2018 Le Ink


Recommended Posts

As some of you may know Poland is one of biggest exporters of cosmetics, furniture and fruits. But we also have inks. Or, to be more precise, one ink maker – KWZI. Konrad offers handmade inks in more than sixty colors. You can check his website here.
Liquid Words is LE ink brewed for participants of polish Pen Show 2017. The ink is heavily saturated and was available for short time and in limited quantity.
Flow: This ink is wet and dense. It flows well, I haven't experienced any hard starts or skipping..
Saturation: well saturated ink. There are stronger purples on the market, but for me, this level of saturation works fine.
Lubrication: good and pleasant.
Drying time: It can take a while, depending on the nib you use. 15-20 seconds on Rhodia, 5 – 8 seconds on absorbent paper.
Feathering: present on bad quality papers.
Bleedthrough: experienced only on Moleskine (crappiest paper ever)
Water resistance: nope.

I think Mr & Mrs KWZI told us that if this ink is well received they’ll make it part of the regular line, but without the liquid words name and label.

I love it because it's my favourite colour (dark purple to purple-black, going on to aubergine). If "Liquid Words" -- a fantastic name -- incl. LE are to be revamped, what will the new (reg) name be??

Yes!! pretty please...


I would buy more than one bottle of this concoction.

It will join and probably go straight up to Nº1, in the purple options.

Others being used fairly regularly, Dark Lilac Mix (by Migo), Lavender Purple (MB), Suma Purple (Kobe/Sailor), Shigure (Sailor), Grey Plum (KWZ), Aubergine (DA)

I would definitely want a bottle of this, no matter what they call it. Can't have too many purples....

Is this a standard ink or an IG?

OH YEAH Love it!

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

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
