Reading the other reviews on Syo-Ro ink here in FPN, I admit that I was perplexed as to weather I should purchase a bottle or not, but your review convinced me I should, even if it is for experiencing this "color change" and for the "vintage" looks of the ink.
What was the nib on the pen you used for your review? Was it a Medium?
Thanks again for an informative review.

The nib used was an Esterbrook 1555 nib which was originally designed for Gregg shorthand. I would call it a fine point for those not familiar with Esterbrook nibs.

The Syo-ro has some shading, so I tried it in a flex pen. Even in a flex pen, the shading isn't terribly dramatic. But the color changes slightly. With a regular nib, the ink looks like a lovely quiet blue-green. But with the flex pen, it seems a slightly more vivid, but still calm, blue-green. I think this is the same effect zenrabbit showed with the broader nib. I will note that my sample is a little bluer, and a little less gray, than zenrabbit's scans look on my computer.
It's a really lovely ink. I already have the Ku-jaku, so I can't justify another expensive bottle right now. But I think it's going on my Christmas list. I'm so glad I stumbled on this review and tried the ink.
