KWZ Ink is made in Poland by Konrad Zurawski. Konrad has been making fountain pen inks since 2012 and has also created an iron gall ink that is safe for fountain pens. Konrad is constantly improving his inks by making minor changes and additions to his recipes. KWZ Inks have been reviewed by numerous fountain pen publications and has received rave reviews. We currently carry over 20 of the KWZ Ink colors. We currently carry both the standard KWZ Ink and the Iron-Gall ink.
The standard inks are very smooth and wet, which comes in a large amount of colors. To provide a little background on Iron-Gall Inks, this ink is categorized as "Iron Gall," which really means it's nearly permanent once it meets paper. A chemical reaction happens between the ink and the page that makes it highly resistant to water damage, fading over time, and losing its color over the years. Iron Galls are great for archival quality projects.
The Iron-Gall Inks are waterproof, but require a slightly more routine upkeep of your fountain pen. There have been no cases of corrosion or blockage from the Iron-Gall Inks. This ink is not recommended for pens that are left for weeks at a time between use. Pens that tend to dry out after a day or two of no use should not have Iron-Gall Ink used in them. Once Iron-Gall Ink dries in the pen, it can be very difficult to clean.

I am just learning about fountain pens so I cannot write a fancy ink review. I do know that the color is wonderful (Brown Pink) and is fun to write with. Love it!

Wonderful experience as always. Great packaging, fast shipping, and personalized experience. The only place I trust to buy my KWZ ink!

Dan is absolutely amazing, and his shop is a dream come true. I have a strong affinity for KWZ inks, but they are almost impossible to find anywhere. Provincial Mills has an amazing assortment and great stock of my favorite inks, but most importantly, they have amazing service! I’ve placed 4 orders in under a month’s time, and they won’t be my last. Keep up the good work, Dan!

I loved my first purchase from Dan so much that I re-ordered! KWZ's "Honey" ink is one of my favorites and can be hard to come by. I'm so glad I found Dan's shop.

Extremely happy with everything! Arrived on time and in perfect packaging along with a personalized, handwritten note from the shop owner, Dan. Will definitely be buying from Dan again.
