Azure 5 – 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. You can check his website here.

Azure 5 is one of five azure inks in KWZ line. It’s a favourite of mine. The ink feels very smooth in both finer and broader nibs, it offers great lubracition and overall performance is rather satisfying. The thing that can be disturbing to some people is strong vanilla odour. Actually when you unpost the pen, sit straight and write you can still feel it even though the nib si more than 50 cm from your nose.

I haven’t experienced any problems with this one.

First let’s look at the bottle.
