Levenger Shiraz

It seems Levenger is family company that offers a wide variety of products. Levenger designs many of its products, with approximately 75% of its product line being proprietary. The company describes itself as a champion of Slow Tech. Levenger CEO and co-founder Steve Leveen has aligned the company with the Conscious Capitalism movement. To that end, the company has created an initiative called Partnering for Good, which pays product-based royalties to nonprofit institutions whose missions are connected to reading or learning.

Among other things the company offers a line of fountain pen iks.

Levenger’s Shiraz is an interesting ink. Depending on the nib and paper you use it can be named pink, raspberry, dark raspberry, deep wine and so on and so on. Basically it’s a fun to use from time to time. The ink is intense, it shades and produces strong sheen.

On some papers (CIAK, surprisingly) feathering can be experienced.

Frankly I’m surprides there’s not more of this ink reviews over the net.
