KWZ IG Blue #5

KWZ Ink IG Blue #5

IG Blue #5 starts the slide down into turquoise territory, with a blue-green coloration that is reminiscent of Sailor’s Nano Blue Black from the bottle. However this coloration is short-lived as the ink dries to a dark blue that distinctly smells like it has green in its heritage. It is an exceedingly dry ink (which I like in an iron gall) that is also quite waterproof indeed. For its physical properties alone, I would say that this ink is quite desirable.
