2 thoughts on “Ink Review: KWZ Maroon

  1. I simply adore this color family, and love this ink. I got the KWZ-Maroon back in January of 2017. I have it in my pen right now. I have it in a Japanese broad, but prefer it in a little smaller nibs than that. It flows fairly wet in that Japanese broad too. I don’t think my ink is super dry, but on a scale of 1-10, I’d call it a 4-4.5 or so. I also got KWZ-Green Gold, and Grapefruit. Green Gold is a great color too, but in some pens it is better than others. Grapefruit looks better to me in smaller nibs, otherwise it is too red.

    I also have a 30ml bottle of Syrah, it was one of the first inks I bought. Oxblood was an early favorite too, but I chose Syrah over that one. Sailor-Oku yama is another favorite of mine. Burgundy Rose was something I went crazy for. I used it so much I got a little burned out on it. Diamine-Red Dragon is another color I really like, and it grew on me the more I used it. It made it to the approved list. So yes, this is one of my favorite categories of inks for sure.

  2. Another great offering in the brownish red family! It’s good to know that it behaves differently from the F-C Garnet Red – this way it’s possible to have (almost) the same color but in pens with very different needs.
