Both in looks and in smell. It's almost... like a honey[?] or sugary smell that is certainly notable upon writing. Nothing bad, but it was certainly surprising upon usage! This ink...view more is incredibly wet, however, and my F nib outs out larger than my M [same brand] for line thickness! The color changes within the line itself is quite wonderful, however! My test swatch/lines were done with a glass dip pen all on Midori Paper in non natural light. view less
This is the second KWZ "Standard" ink I have tried in my Noodler's Ahab (the other is Grapefruit), and it, too, worked beautifully. Nice wet flow that behaved well for Fine writing...view more and kept up when I did not flex writing. I have so far not experienced the shading in the sample, but this is a lovely dark turquoise on my Rhodia paper. I would absolutely buy a whole bottle. view less
