I broke open the Ebisu. I was expecting a cool, icy blue but it's quite weird. It has a long dry time,it's very watery but perfectly legible and has a great deal of shading. It falls down on the lubrication front. I like it but feel a little disappointed with it because I was expecting something quite different. On most papers its a rather plain, pale blue but on slightly more absorbent papers a very strange purple aspect shines through. It doesn't in any way resemble the colour printed on the packaging. If you liked the Miles Davis MB Blue you will enjoy this.

I recently saw these promoted on jet Pen’s website and none of them are dark enough or colorful enough to interest me in the least except for the very first one the hoteisan. Very disappointing from an otherwise good company. 

With the new FPN rules, now I REALLY don't know what to put in my signature.

Sam, when my ink collection grows up, it wants to be just like yours.

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

My bottle of Hoteison came today.  It's what i expected, a slightly washed out green black.  It doesn't match with anything else i have so this turned out well.

that's an interesting ink.

Is it's color more a warm or a cold green-black?

I've been using both Momiji and Bishamonten for a little while. They're very similar on various kinds of paper. It takes a moment's staring at them to tell the difference. Bishamonten is perhaps a little more pink, Momiji very slightly more orange. They're both fantastic and high on my list of lifetime favorites.
