Reading through this thread I've come to the conclusion that it was an April fool's joke played at the wrong time of year. I won't be waiting for the non-existent recipe.

Big thanks, Prvt. Toter for this excellent recommendation!  I've been one of the suckers waiting and waiting for the "secret recipe" which I also believe was a hoax (motive???).  But I have ordered a bottle of Tsuki Yo and plan to be delighted  :)

Guys, maybe something (bleep) up with the ink, and maybe the maker just forgot about the thread? doesn't have to be a hoax.

Agreed, mixing inks is a crazy affair... sometimes strange things happen... Hoping it is not just a tease as it is beautiful and I am a sucker for blue.  The Tsuki Yo is a nice ink, pretty well behaved, but requires a decent stub or flex nib to get the shading out of it.

Tsuki-Yo is beautiful. Shades differently. Yama-Guri is closer, but bluer and with that legendary sheen.

This is no hoax. What a silly hoax it would be. I've sent out samples to a couple of folks. And despite the discouraging negativity and bitterness shown towards me here I will be posting my latest recipe as soon as I find it amongst the moving boxes.

Apologies to those who have patiently waited.

Thanks for the updates, going to check out the Yama-Guri based on your comments... my Tsuki Yo is reaching to bottom of the bottle (sad)  and will need replaced soon.. heading to the inks section to look at now!.

My apologies!  About a year ago (?) I sent a PM to Masque and never received a response.  In the absence of any reply to our pleadings lo these many months, I mistakenly came to the wrong conclusion.  I'm back to waiting  :)  :)

As a thought, if further testing is required, many hands make light labor.
Just like when they release the new iphone and thousands of people buy it and then we start hearing rumours that 'it bends in half'. Lol. Six months later they release the new version with hopefully all the bugs worked out.

There are several people on the forum who would love to help you experiment with this ink, if help is still required. An eight headed hydra is better than one.
The praise of the praiseworthy is above all rewards.

Unless you use precise measurements, your mileage may vary. Additionally, no guarantees are made as to the accuracy of this formula. My inks may be younger or older than yours, may be from a different batch, or maybe I'm just really good looking and my inks are trying to impress me.

15x Navajo Turquoise
3x 54th Massachusetts
1x Old Manhattan Blackest Black

Noodler's inks, all three.

I suggest a name with a wintery context. The high shading and colors it put out just scream ice-cold to me. Something like "Ice Storm" or "Winters Night" would be very fitting if you ask me.
