We are kicking off KWZ week (where we do seven days of KWZ ink reviews) with a review of KWZ Iron Gall Gummiberry. Thanks to inkjournal.com for sending a sample over for review.
Iron Gall Gummiberry is a dark, saturated purple.
When pooled, this ink turns a dark purple, almost black.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 55 seconds
Water resistance: Medium-some of the ink washed away but the writing was still readable.
Show through: Medium
On 20 pound copy paper the ink behaved well, no issues that I noticed.
Ink swabs for comparison, left to right (top to bottom for mobile RSS): KWZ (non-IG) Gummiberry, KWZ Iron Gall Gummiberry, and KWZ Brown Pink. Click here to see the KWZ inks together.
I used a broad Pelikan M805 Ocean Swirl on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a lovely wet flow.
Overall, I like the flow of this ink, and it's a great color. Give it a try, you might love it.
