150 Confederation Brown – Scriptus 2017 Le Ink By Kwzi

Scriptus is the name of the Toronto’s Pen Show and Writing Show.   Since 2017 Scriptus organizers together with KWZI create a LE ink for the show. For Scriptus 2017, show participants will be able to get “150 Confederation Brown”,crafted  to celebrate the 150 years of Canada becoming a Confederation (proclaimed on July 1, 1867).

I received a sample of the ink and since Claudia revealed the name of the ink and it’s no longer top secret  I’ll share my scans and thoughts.

The ink is saturated and it has interesting hue that’s highly paper dependent. On some papers it’s more brownish while on others greener. Nib width and the pen influence color as well. I would say that the flow is nice. Lubrication is satisfying. Drying time, especially on absorbent papers is very good (less than 5 seconds). Of course on Rhodia it’ll take longer to dry. It’s not water resistant.
