  1. There's already a couple of great reviews, this is just a comparison with my other inks. It's my first not super saturated ink, which did surprise me, but I like it a lot, there's a calmness about it. It also the merit of getting along with a Parker Sonnet. Paper: HP laserjet 32 lbs. First row: Fuyu Gaki, Mandarin, Orange Indien, Rouge Hematite, Poppy Red. Second row: Ambre de Baltique, inti, Lie de Thé, Yama Guri, Verdigris. Third row: Chiku Rin, rehydrated old Penman Emerald, Vert Empire, Verde Muschiato, Ina Ho. Fourth row: Ama Iro, Kon Peki, Équinoxe 6, Souten, Tsuyu Kusa. Fifth row: Bleu Austral, Perle noire x 2, Ajisai, Asa Gao.

    Nurebairo - Kyo No Oto

    To be honest I don't know much about the company. Some time ago Algester posted topic about Tag Kyoto branch inks. The bottles and colors presented on their site looked nice so I've decided to try some of these inks. I've managed to buy two on Rakuten and I'll review them. The inks are made by or for Takeda Jimuki company and are available in two lines: Kyo No Oto and Kyo-Iro. Kyo no Oto inks are said to be traditional japanese colors that has been used since heian era (roughly 1000 years ago),and expressing a tinges that have been nurtured in long history and profound culture for long time. Anyway one of the inks I've ordered is Nurebairo. To be honest I was in a hurry and I thought it would be very dark blue-black-grey. It's not. It's black although it does shade in dark blue-indigo which is pretty cool but on the other hand not visible in all nibs. The packaging and bottle are elegant and very nice. The color is intense and can compete with J. Herbin's Perle Noire or Aurora Black. The ink is very wet and it tends to give broader line than, say, Waterman ink. I haven't observed any bleedthrough but I wouldn't be surprised to see it on worst quality papers. The ink isn't water resistant. What's really cool is the fact it shows quite pronounced sheen.
