KWZ Ink is made in Poland by Konrad Zurawski. This year (2020), Konrad introduced a line of colligraphy inks. Konrad has been making inks since 2012. Konrad is constantly improving his inks by making minor changes and additions to his recipes. KWZ Inks have been reviewed by numerous publications and have received rave reviews. ***These inks are for dip pens only - not fountain pens***. Here is some additional information on the new calligraphy inks:
-These are handmade, water-based, permanent and waterproof pigment inks for dip pens only.
-The line was carefully designed in cooperation with popular Polish calligraphers to make calligraphy writing more enjoyable and easy.
We cared to create the inks with:
-no feathering effects using a wide range of papers, especially copy papers so that you can print calligraphy exercises, lines etc.
-proper flow from dip nibs, especially flex and pointed ones, which means, that one dip is enough for a few lines of writing, not just few letters
-possibility to write a very thin hairline using pointed nibs
-one of the the most impressive features that is hard to find elsewhere: the stable mixture of gold or silver particles that don’t sediment - don't have to be shaken or mixed during use.
-permanent bonding to the paper, crucial for artistic use.
For the more professional writers , who are used to very quick calligraphy writing (unlike beginners), can slightly dilute the ink by adding a few drops of water to obtain the properties adjusted to the individual needs.
A note from Provincial Mills:
We have already tested all of the colors. One of the most difficult challenges we have had was finding a good calligraphy ink to carry. We can officially say our search is over. We have been thoroughly impressed by this ink. Everything written above came from Konrad at KWZ ink and we agree with everything he has said.
