Ink Review: KWZ Raspberry

A while ago I got a small sample of KWZ Raspberry ($15 for 60mL) and I loved it. I always meant to go back and purchase a whole bottle. When I got my Kaweco Hello Kitty edition, I decided Raspberry was the perfect ink for it.

I’ve used several KWZ inks in the past and they perform well. Some folks don’t like the slight smell of KWZ inks; when I opened the bottle for this review it reminded me a bit of the extracts I use in baking (vanilla, almond, etc.)

Raspberry is a reddish pink. I found it close to the pinky parts of Iroshizuku Yama Budo (without the sheeting) and to two of the Colorverse inks. It leans red with a touch of blue, and is a nice shading ink.

Can’t wait to use it more!

  1. I like the smell of KWZ ink. Having said that, I tried to narrow down what that scent is. You know, it’s not quite vanilla… Finally, I think I’ve got it. I think it is marshmallow scented. That’s what it reminds me of the most. I have about 5 of their inks, and I use them regularly. But… I always want cookies when I’m using it, which has been a problem during the pandemic, sitting at home all day… sigh.

  2. Is there decent saturation of the color or is it light and shaded. Hard to tell from the review. Thanks.
