We are finishing up new releases week with KWZ Confederation Brown, which was a Scriptus Pen Show ink in 2017. Thanks to @penthusiast_oscar on Instagram for sending a sample over for review.
Confederation Brown is a dark brown with a green undertone.
When pooled, this ink turns a dark shiny black. After 24 hours the ink drops were still wet. A lot of people ask about the ink's smell. KWZ inks have a vanilla scent to them, and I noticed it when filling the pens. When writing, the only time I noticed the smell was when I was using a flex nib that was putting down a lot of ink.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On 20 pound copy paper the ink behaved pretty well, just a little bit of feathering.
I used a medium Pelikan M400 White Tortoise on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a wet flow, which I love. I really liked this pen/ink/paper combo.
Overall, I like the wet flow this ink has. If you love this ink but can't get it anymore since it was a limited edition, give Robert Oster Bronze a try.
