Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

KWZ Grey Plum


 This ink was given to me for review by Dromgoole's, and I wasn't sure what to expect from it. The swatch on the box was clearly a dark purple, but you never know what you'll get from the nib. Well, I guess I kinda did, actually. I got a dark, dusky purple that is so dark you could mistake it for a black in some nibs. I like an ink like this. It gives you something that is formal enough to fit in at a serious meeting where you don't want to rock an orange, but you know that it's not a regular black, and that's cool.

Additionally, this ink flows really nicely and it performs pretty well even on bad paper.

Check it out below and let me know what you think in the comments. Or an email. Or whatever. You know.

Oh, and if you want to get this ink, head over to Dromgoole's and let them know that I sent ya. That sort of thing is always nice for a vendor to know.

Copy Paper Test

You can see some mild feathering and a little bleeding on this 20lb paper, but keep in mind that this is some poor paper. You can see the inconsistencies in the fiber even in these pictures.

Inkjournal Tomoe River Edition

That's a good paper, right there. You can see some shine on the ink, here, but it's not a sheen. Just sort of a shine. The purple peeks through more strongly, though.

Inky Fingers Wheat Straw Paper

This is a good paper, and you can see the difference in how this ink looks from a wider and a narrower version of the medium nib. I like it both ways, really. 

Water Test
 Not bad. Not bad.

Disclaimer: Dromgoole's gave me this bottle of ink for review. All I promise is an honest review, and I don't think that free ink sways me in one way or another. Your mileage may vary, etc, etc.
