    Default Ink Review: Kaweco Sunrise Orange.

    Kaweco sent me a Kaweco Classic Sport Red FP in exchange for an honest review, and they included a pack of Sunrise Orange ink cartridges in the box. So I thought some of you might like to see it.

    I have reviewed the Kaweco Classic Sport here and used a writing sample of this ink in that review. Here it is again:

    I gave the pen a couple of shakes after inserting the cartridge, and it wrote straight away. Sometimes you need to squeeze a little water through Kaweco Sport pens before writing with them, but I didn't do this.

    The ink flowed quite smoothly, and lubricated the nib quite well without a hard start or any skipping.

    I saw plenty of shading in the ink.

    It felt slightly dryer that some other inks that I have used lately, but I don't find any of my Kaweco Sport pen and Kaweco ink combinations to be wet.

    The orange ink colour is attractive, and isn't so bright as to be retina searing. In fact, compared with some of the orange inks I've tried before, it's quite sophisticated and restrained.

    The ink didn't show through on any of the papers that I tried it with, apart from the 50gsm Tomoe River, and all inks seem to show through on that paper.

    It didn't bleed through on any of the papers I tried it with.

    It dried fairly quickly on all of the papers.

    It reminds me of Lamy Copper Orange.

    Chrissy, I hope it is ok if I add some usage examples to your excellent ink reviews (where I have some, maybe it gives some added value to the viewers).

    It is really great for drawing to be sure. It can go down slightly darker for writing depending on pen and paper. (This was Mystery Ink #17)
