INK SWAB: 111/365 – PW Akkerman Hofvijver Grijs

GRAY AKKERMAN HOFVIJVER GRIJS 29

 

Hofvijver Grijs is a nice middle-of-the-road gray (unless you prefer that it be grey) ink from PW Akkerman.

If you’ve been searching for a US source for Akkerman inks and their iconic bottles, check out Vanness Pen Shop. I’ve only ordered from here once, but had a good experience.

BLUE AKKERMAN LAAN VAN NIEUW OOST INDIGO 09

 

Akkerman #9 – Laan Van Nieuw Oost – Indigo

This ink isn’t for me. The color is too muted and too much of a non-color. It leans toward gray with a bit of green. I also am bothered that his ink is called “Indigo” when that color is usually a dark inky blue.

Tell me what you think?

Happy Valentine’s Day!

With all of the pink and red out there today, I thought I’d do something a bit different and show off a beautiful purple ink that I love – PW Akkerman’s Simplisties Violet. This is an ink that I’ve reviewed in the past and absolutely loved. The fact that the ink comes in the best bottle ever is just a bonus.
