Today we are taking KWZ Raspberry for a spin. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Raspberry is a bright, eye-catching pink.
I didn't notice any sheen in the large swabs and ink drops.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 40 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On 20 pound copy paper the ink behaved well, no issues that I noticed.
I used a medium Pilot Metropolitan Retro Pop Purple on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a wetter than average flow. I did notice a few hard starts when I started using the pen after it sat for a few hours.
Overall, the dry time was a bit long, and I had a few hard starts, but other than that it was pretty well behaved. I do enjoy wetter flowing inks and Raspberry is on the wetter side. Give it a try, you might love it.
