Old Gold – KWZI

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. I believe it’s fair to say iron – gall inks were refreshed by him. You can check KWZ website here.

Old Gold is one of KWZI classics. I believe it was one of the first Konrad’s inks that I tried. Also it’s the ink that I named while writing review for polish fountain pen board. Recently I’ve decided to used the rest of the bottle and soon Old Gold will be just a memory (unless I buy another bottle that is).

I still enjoy the color and the ink writing performance. It’s wet, saturated, it soesn’t feather but it can cause bleedthrough when used in wet pen on bad quality paper. It’s not water resistant. Color is interesting and the end result you see varies strongly depending on the paper and pen you use.

First let’s look at the bottle.
