Monarch – KWZI SE ink for Fontoplumo

As some of you may know Poland is one of biggest exporters of cosmetics, furniture and fruits. But we also have inks. Or, to be more precise, one ink maker – KWZI. Konrad offers handmade inks in more than sixty colors. You can check his website here.

Monarch was made for Fontoplumo shop in Netherlands. The idea was to create an ink that could accompany this stunning SE Conid Bulkfiller Monarch fountain pen.

First let’s look at the bottle.

And now the color, well, this color simply rocks. It’s rich, shades nicely, is strongly saturated and lubricates nib in a pleasant way. It may be one of three best oranges I’ve ever tried. Simply stunning. If water resistance is important for you, you’ll have to look somewhere else – Monarch offers no water resistance. The ink can be bought only directly from Fontoplomu. Good news is you don’t have to buy the pen in order to get the ink;)

On the other hand this pen is simply stunning. If only it wouldn’t cost that much, I would get it and wait impatiently for it to come.
