A saturated, slightly dusty purple with strong gold sheen(the writing samples below were from a fairly dry pen). Not much shading but diluting with water and using a wetter pen may bring it out. I've had it in my pen for 2 days and the ink doesn't seem to be doing anything strange, not too sure about staining but none of the inks used in the mix usually stains much.
I don't have the exact ratio but it's mostly pilot iroshizuku Yama budo with some shin-Kai and blue denim(Robert oster), possibly 4:1:1.
Dry time:4/5
Water resistance:3/5(runs but definitely readable)
No bleedthrough or feathering, slight show through on the copier paper.
Sorry for the sloppy photos, I did try to take them in different lighting situations.
I might try diluting it or playing with the ratio if anyone's interested. 😊

Very nice.

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

Awesome color!!!

It reminds me a lil'bit Lamy Dark Lilac!!


I got something really dark and showing an amazing sheen mixing Sailors Oku-Yama and Yama-Dori!

Mixing 50/50 of this I got something closer do Sailor Shigure with a gold-green sheen...



I'll come up with some pictures soon!
