As indicated by the absolute fervor around the Vanness Pens table at the DC Pen Show, KWZ inks are very popular. The inks are from Poland and are available in a wide range of colors from subtle to brilliant. I reviewed Menthol Green after the Chicago Show which I really liked and now I’ve got KWZ Grapefruit to share with you.
I think Grapefruit is a perfect end-of-summer color. At first, I thought it going to more pinky but it ended up being a much more orangey color. It’s bright a vivid and shades a bit to a lovely sunset yellow-orange.
I compared it to swatches I had in my stash of Noodler’s Dragon Napalm and Habanero which are much more yellow-orange than KWZ Grapefruit. Surprisingly, Waterman Red, which turns out to be a very warm red, was closer in hue to Grapefruit than the more deep orangey colors in my swatch libraries.
I hope you enjoy the color and the cocktail recipes. I’m thought it was an appropriate way to share this fun, summery color.
A 60ml bottle of KWZ Grapefruit is $12, 4ml sample is available for $2.
