Thank you for doing this wonderful review! I was debating getting this ink because it's an LE, but I know I would not use the color much. I'm very happy that you reviewed it so I can have a taste of it through your writing samples, photos and beautiful splashes :)


That's what I thought too before deciding to purchase it. Finally the box won me over. :)

Is this as similar to Tanzanite in writing as it appears in your swabs? My wife loves Tanzanite, but I hate the behavior. I've heard it referred to as pen laxative.

I haven't compared these two in the same pen. I suppose they are similar. Tanzanite would be more saturated, a bit bluer and have less shading. Sasakia charonda is quite close too.

I took a photo of the comparison part to give you a better idea, since my scanner tend to make the pictures more saturated than they really are.

OK, that clarifies things. Not very similar to Tanzanite at all. So do you prefer the Murasaki?

Well between Monet and Murasaki I would choose Monet. I like its bluer hue more.

 

As I said you can try to replicate Monet by mixing Murasaki and Ajisai, since both are not so saturated. Or you can find a way to lower the saturation of Cassia. Actually I shall try it myself. These experiments seem fun!

Here's the result of my mixing experiment.

 

I have to correct myself. Diluting Cassia won't make Monet... I mixed Cassia with Blue Ghost by 2:3. The mixture got desaturated but it's too blue to be Monet...

 

However, mixing Murasaki and Ajisai proved to be quite a success. At 4:1 ratio it's quite similar to Monet.

 

The swabs on the right are all Monet.

Final result comparison: Murasaki-shikibu, 4:1 Mix and Monet.

Thank you, these reviews are excellent!


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
