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

Let's give each other due respect, and approach discussion rigorously. We're all peers and equals here as fellow hobbyists, with common interests in the acquisition and use of fountain pens, but not necessarily any shared values, and no obligation to offer each other moral support for one's narrative or position.

@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!
