For this month I have chosen KWZ Warsaw Dreaming, one of the three inks produced by KWZ named after their favourite spots in Poland.
These inks are available from any KWZ stockist and are in the same 60ml bottles as their other inks; and they are standard inks not iron gall based inks.
The ink is black but for want of a better term it’s a ‘soft’ black, it doesn’t have the harsh solid colour you get in other blacks I think it tends more towards a natural black. It’s a really nice ink to use and I currently have it loaded in my Pilot Custom 74 and the nib just floats across the page.
So, if you’re in the market for a new bottle of black ink then Warsaw Dreaming might be just what you are looking for and while you’re thinking about it do that check out the full KWZ range; they produce a fantastic range of colours in both standard ink and safe iron gall varieties.
Should you decide to stock up on KWZ inks or organise a group buy then I would recommend checking out Appelboom (https://appelboom.com) they carry the full range and offer some excellent prices and wonderful customer service.
I’ve ordered from them and I’m happy to recommend them; my only advice is if you decide to place a large order then email Joost first and he will let you know what the stock levels are, when he is expecting deliveries or if it is better to place a custom order for you.
If you do decide to try a bottle I don’t think, for a minute, that you will regret it, in a very short space of time this has become my favourite black ink.
