Review: Levenger Amethyst

Amemthyst is a saturated purple that shades. It goes from a deep dark purple to a strong purple. Amethyst seems to straddle between the line of not being too blue or too red. I find that the ink makes my Japanese SM nib writes smoother than it normally does. This particular shade isn’t my cup of tea. I prefer my purples redder but this is a perfectly great shade of purple. One for purple ink lovers to check out.

Review: Leveneger Empyrean

My thanks to Louisa for the ink sample!

This is my first time using a Levenger ink. My first impression is it’s a super wet ink that feathers in my Kokuyo and TWSBI notebook. It fairs much better on my Traveler’s notebook and Rhodia paper though there is still some borderline show through on both.

Empyrean is a blue ink that has some shading properties. It lubricates my Japanese F nib, making it write smoother than it normally does. Plus, it has a red sheen when the ink pools. I must note the feathering might be due to water evaporation from my sample. My thanks to Lousia for the sample!
