Still waiting to hear whether international shipment by letter post of my ink samples works OK, and @silverlifter has been responsive and in touch (thanks!), but it's just that NZ Post isn't coming to the party and delivering promptly one way or the other.
 
As far as the sets of Pilot Iroshizuku ink samples go, I think I'll go with something like this:
Set #7: momiji, yu-yake, kiri-same, shin-ryoku, syo-ro, kon-peki, ajisai, shin-kai
Set #8: kosumosu, ina-ho, chiku-rin, tsuki-yo, tsuyu-kusa, yama-budo, tsukushi, take-sumi
Set #9: tsutsuji, fuyu-gaki, ku-jaku, fuyu-syogun, ama-iro, asa-gao, murasaki-shikibu, yama-guri

guided, among other things, by the voting results here: http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/290775-pilot-iroshizuku-full-line-24-inks/ of which colours are popular. Out of 597 votes in the tally, set #7 has 199, set #8 has 198 and set #9 has 196; and each set has at least one blue ink, one teal ink, one red or magenta ink, one dark ink and two light-coloured inks. That's probably a better idea than to group the ink colours by intensity or by colour family for closer comparison, when most interest expressed by way of votes in the other thread go to the darkest inks (312) and the blue and teal inks (245).

 

I have fourteen of the twenty Sailor Shikiori ink colours, so maybe that can form two sets of seven:

Set #11: okuyama, rikyucha, miruai, souten, yonaga, shigure, chushu

Set #12: yodaki, kinmokusei, tokiwamatsu, yamadori, shimoyo, nioisumire, doyou

As always:  1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment.  2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published.  3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.

@silverlifter has kindly advised me earlier today that the package has been delivered with contents intact and without trouble with NZ Post or Customs. Thanks!
