Yeah, that really makes me boggle.  It's one of my most matte inks.  I even tried it in my Omas 360 Magnum which lays down such a concentrated/wet line it's a sheen monster, on Tomoe River paper and not a hint of it.  I wonder if they had some kind of overstock situation and wanted to try and push some of it off of the shelves with dubious claims of sheen.

 

They might have mistaken the darker edge as sheen.

I've been experimenting with Yama-budo. I put a small amount in a dish and left it exposed at room temperature before writing with it...

This week was one of the saddest in recent years after a friend's tragic fatal accident at age 41. I was needfully distracting my mind in the hour before their funeral service in a different city, so dropped in to a brick and mortar fp store. I had a memory that Yama-Budo sheened, but the storeperson didn't know enough about inks to confirm it. Bought it anyway. Then came across this post again tonight while checking whether it was a sheener. I've not even inked a pen with it - thanks to Goudy's post it's gone straight into an open inkwell. It's now serving as an incentive to start and complete a uni research report, so a few days dehydrating will work nicely (probably a week!). I want to write another small note to the grieving wife as well, so all up, a perfect purchase.

Hi Intellidepth - So sorry to hear about your loss, but I'm glad my post has been helpful.

 

In my experiments with Yama-Budo, 2 days dehydration in a shallow dish seemed to give the best results - after which the ink got too sticky to be usable (though a few drops of water might revive it).

Abouth a month ago I bought some L'Artisan Pastellier Callifolio inks. Bleu Mediterrannée and Violet have a subtle sheen, red in the first and golden in the second. I only have my iPhone camera and I'm afraid I can't quite capture it, but here it is how the inks look:

I was surprised to find a little bit of sheen in Waterman Mysterious Blue (left) and Visconti Blue (right). I left my two pens uncapped for a while and I had to "warm them up" on a piece of scrap paper.

Ordinary greaseproof kitchen paper seems to be excellent at highlighting sheen, as can be seen from Sailor's Oku-Yama in the following scan;

Well... actually the real name is BlackStone... SuSeMai was the "Code Name" (Super Secret Maker of Ink)   ;)
 
 
 
The BlackStone Powder Inks were unveiled during the Toronto Pen Show (follow the link in my signature) ... they will be soon on the market.  They are the most amazing inks with the most amazing properties.  Lots of reviews and testing on the Inky Thoughts thread.  Look for Red Cashmere, Blue Cashmere and Black Cashmere,
 
If you feel like you need them NOW... drop a line to Kevin at JustWrite.com.au and gently beg for it.   :D
