Reminds me of the question of how many babies it takes to make a bottle of baby oil.

Dave, I'm so glad you posted. Gave me a good chuckle, thinking about Iroshizuku with the eel and tequila with the worm and babies in oil and so forth.

And you know, I might have made your mistake as well, trusting that salesperson. I mean, how would *I* know what they put in inks? Eel sounds as plausible as anything else, frankly... :D

Does this mean that Iroshi can be used as nam pla ( fish sauce)?

I doubt that the eels are fermented.

DAVE,

Who is giving you all this information? This is the second post of what seems to be, misleading information. EEL? Let us know who this is so we can send a ninja to take care of him/her.Posted Image Or at least let us know so that someone who is more knowledgeable can take that persons job. We have enough problems with service to have such a person selling pens.

Either that or you are hearing things wrong. The only ink that even mentions eel is Noodles Eel Series of ink which doesn't have eel in it but is formulated to lubricate a pens innards. Hence the slippery eel connection.

Ohhh... I always wondered what use the ninja emoticon would do anyone... Now I see its use

Well, ignoring the whole eel thing, I can agree with everyone else saying that Iroshizuku ink is great! It writes so smoothly, and has this wonderful shading on most of its colors. They're my favorite ink brand :thumbup:

Those who will eternally know far more than I do tell me it has the safety and reliability of WM ink with far better colour.

I just found out about this brand of ink, iroshizuku, made by Pilot. It contains eel and is supposedly a very fine ink and is a good lubricator for your pen.


Whatta great rumor!

My late father-in-law, who loved eel fishing, usta be amazed by how slimey eels were. He'd rave on about cleaning eels and how their skin exuded copious amounts of slime, despite their thin skin being a mere 0.002" thick. I have no idea about how eel skin generates "slime", but sounds like great PR.

"Pssst..... no tell, but our ink have eel slime. Why write so smooth." :glare:

I love it!!
