When I first began sampling various blue inks, I found that not all of the inks I liked performed well in my TWSBI Mini - F.  Iroshizuku inks performed flawlessly for me in that pen but I didn't find quite the shade I was looking for.  I ended up coming up with a mix of Kon-peki and Asa-gao that did what I wanted.  My reciple is 5 parts Kon-Peki to 4 parts Asa-gao.


On Tomoe River white paper:




It also shades better than others I have on lesser papers such as HP 32# Laserjet:




Has anyone else tinkered with these two inks or similar?

Wow! That looks amazing. :puddle:


Oh boy. I may need to pick up Asa-gao to go with my Kon-Peki....


Not sure if I'm happy  :D  or sad  :crybaby:  (about my wallet)

Thank you for this idea! I have an unused bottle of Kon-Peki (I don't like the color) that now seems to be useful. ;)

OOOO, I wonder if this would be a good replacement for PPS.  Feel like joining in our PPS comparison?

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

LOoks great, with nice shading.  I love Iroshizuku and have both inks - going to have to try some!
