Thanks for the link. 

A precision: most popular SIS in Japan.

Westerners prefer more saturated inks.

123 162 243 for me. But i have tried them all (maybe 40 or so),    yet.

The inks don't look as saturated as the previous inks.

Am I correct?

Interesting. My favorites are 123, 237, 241, 573, 673, and 941. 970 too but wish it were a deeper green. Really the whole line is excellent.

“I admit it, I'm surprised that fountain pens are a hobby. ... it's a bit like stumbling into a fork convention - when you've used a fork all your life.”

Partially yes.

The higher the number the more the saturation and sheen.

The lower the more pastel and shading. With many notable exceptions.

Some are innovative and polychromic like the 123, 162, 150, etc...

After seeing more and more reviews of these inks, I've found several inks appealing (to me). But realistically, having a number of difficult-to-obtain inks from Japan I always end up feeling that there isn't something that I must have.

Nice one, thank you for sharing Mech-for-i

I love 125, 162 and 173... I thought I was special  :lol:  These ones are really special, unique inks
 

I normally like bright, saturated teals, so I got myself some 464 and 764. I wasn't impressed. Not that they are bad inks or colours; just nothing special (or: nothing you can't get easier and cheaper elsewhere). I'm thinking to use them for mixes actually

 

I may try 237?
