|PW AKKERMAN SIMPLISTIES VIOLET FOUNTAIN PEN INK REVIEW|
I’ve had this ink for quite awhile, but am just getting around to a good review of it. Akkerman inks have been on my mind because they recently announced a new smaller-sized bottle. The inks come from the Netherlands and shipping isn’t cheap (neither is the ink), but those bottles. Goodness.

Back to Simplisties Violet – it’s a gorgeous ink. Writes great. Amazing deep, dark color and saturation. I’m not seeing any shading here, but I wonder if I would with a broad nib.
I really have nothing negative to say. Decent dry-time. Flow was wonderful in my TWSBI 540.

What inks are you loving these days? Do you own any Akkerman inks?
Have a good week!
Wonderful review Christine, thanks so much for posting it.
I was able to purchase three Akkerman's ink in the larger bottles late last year and will likely be enjoying them for decades to come (150 ml will last a long time).
#9 – Laan van Nieuw Oost-Indigo (dusky blue)
#15 – Voorhout Violet (your Simplisties Violet shades better, I think)
#24 – Zuiderpark Blauw-Groen (a very nice blue-green)
Hopefully the new smaller bottles will mean it will be less expensive to ship the inks from the Netherlands. I would love to add to my Akkerman's collection.
Thanks for commenting, Paul. I'd be glad to work out a trade for some Akkerman inks sometime if you want to sample what I have (or have coming). I'll post about the colors I have when I receive them all in a few weeks! xo
Thanks so much Christine – I would love to exchange Akkerman (or any other inks of interest) samples with you. I need to update my inventory of bottled inks anyway – a nice evening (or three) project; with an opportunity to do some color swabs on card stock.
