Liquid Words is LE ink brewed for participants of polish Pen Show 2017. The ink is heavily saturated and was available for short time and in limited quantity.

Flow: This ink is wet and dense. It flows well but it may clogg the pen if you don’t sue it frequently. Hard starts can be experienced.

Saturation: very saturated ink. It’s almost black in places.

Lubrication: very good and pleasant.

Drying time: It can take a while, depending on the nib you use. 15-30 seconds on Rhodia, 15 – 25 seconds on absorbent paper.

Clogging issues: Experienced. The ink is dense and super saturated. It seems it was Pen Show organisers choice. As a result it can dry out in the nib, especially if you leave the pen uncapped for a while.

Feathering: present on bad quality papers.

Bleedthrough: experienced only on Moleskine (crappiest paper ever)

Water resistance: nope.
