My favorite is not in the list, it's Syo-ro ...

And Yu-Yake is more an orange than a red ;)


One pen roll, two pen rolls, three pen rolls ... So many pen rolls ! Do you want one ?

Really?  Maybe I should change my vote...  :huh: 
I voted for Yama-budo, but it was a toss-up between that and Yama-guri.  With Take-sumi coming in a close third....

My vote would be for Fuyu-Syogun, if it was on the list.

 

When I first got into fountain pens and discovered the huge world of ink, I decided right away I hated all gray inks. I thought they just looked like pale, watery blacks. But then, quite some time later, I saw Fuyu-Syogun and all preconceived notions about gray fell away. I ordered a sample, was immediately smitten, and now own a full bottle. I love it so much, I've been using it even more than my supposed favorite of all time, DA Aubergine. The name is so wonderfully appropriate; it really does look like winter in a bottle, and it shades so beautifully. I love winter and cold, so it's a fitting ink for me.

I can't reduce it to less than four or five. Any of them could be the favorite on a given day.

Kon-peki and Kiri-same (grey, not green, to me)... may have to find a sample of Fuyu-Syogun though.  Kiri-same really IS autumn to me and if Fuyu-Syogun does winter as well... just gotta have it.
