P.W. Akkerman Hofvijver Grijs Ink

To mark our 100 years of existence, PW Akkerman introduced in 2010 his own ink line. This ink’s came in large 150 ml bottles, these large bottles are now completely sold out.
 
Due to the worldwide success of this unique bottle we decided to continue, but now with a smaller sized bottle with a content of ca 60 ml. The new bottles will be available in the same 31 colors as before. 
The Akkerman inks have been given names related to the city The Hague. For example: KoninginneNach-Blauw, Binnenhof Blues, Shocking Blue, Parkpop Purper or/and Rood Haags Pluch.

P.W. Akkerman Hofvijver Grijs is a mouthful - not the longest of ink names but certainly a tongue twister to articulate. It is a medium grey ink that is not so light it cannot easily be read in finger nibs, so I actually like it a lot. Ok. I like most of these inks so that might not be saying much. It shades beautifully and I really enjoy using it for calligraphy practice because of that. It's pretty easy to clean out of pens as well, so that makes it even more likable.

Price:  € 15,00
Where to buy: P.W. Akkerman (a few US retailers also carry this ink but this is the direct source)
