  1. First off, here are some photos: Nib: http://imgur.com/2vPuwy4Writing Sample: http://imgur.com/t7WFQ4XComparison with Sailor B: http://imgur.com/DW2lT1XHello all, I hope you are well during these strange times. Today I have a short review of my impressions of Sailor’s contemporary Naginata Togi Medium nib. I have been using it for the past month or so as a daily writer. Now, Sailor Naginata Togi nibs and I have a long relationship built upon longing and reluctance. I’ve always wanted one, since getting the chance to try one years ago. They write beautifully, but the prices have been getting a
  2. Below is a written review of Pilot Iroshizuku Tsuki-Yo. The name stands for 'Moonlight' and is a teal leaning deep blue. I quite like this pen for work related writing (little though that is); but it is a tad unsaturated in quite a few of my pen, so not quite a favorite - I'd rather it was a tad darker - the Krishna Sea at night is a similar teal leaning blue, but one with lot more sheen and leans the other way on the saturation spectrum - the color is dense! I find it works best in a wet fine nib, though for this review I used a Sailor Sapporo with a B nib, to highlight the beautiful shading.
  3. https://gph.is/g/Z2mM7rW I am absolutely loving this combination at the moment. My current workhorse pen, a Conid Minimalistica AVDA Phi, outfitted with a Sailor B, writes perfectly for my hand. The nib certainly writes wetter than it would in a Sailor body, but by no means is it a firehose. It’s inked with Tsuki-yo and the paper used in the clip is Tomoe River (the thicker 68gsm) in a Breeze notebook made by Taroko Design.
  4. Disclaimer: I enjoy doing mini ink reviews for my personal reference, and I'd like to share them with others if they might be of help to gain an insight into the ink's appearance and performance. I generally don't have time to put together super comprehensive reviews, like some of our fantastic reviewers here do (thank you so much for your hard work!), but hopefully these mini reviews will still be useful as another point of reference. Pilot Iroshizuku Tsuki-Yo Much has been written about Pilot Iroshizuku inks. It is a highly popular line of Japanese inks that comes in [mostly] vibrant
  5. Ink Shoot-Out : iroshizuku tsuki-yo vs Callifolio Oconto Over the past few years I've acquired a taste for dusty, murky and quirky inks - perfect for personal journaling, but not always suited for a more formal setting. Blue-blacks are a staple for use at the office, and always a safe choice. But when you want something a bit more daring, you just might reach for blue inks with a little bit of a green undertone. Two inks in this category are Pilot iroshizuku tsuki-yo and L'Artisan Pastellier Callifolio Oconto. Tsuki-yo is my go-to ink in this category, but recently I noticed that Oconto is a
  6. So I caved in and bought a bottle of Pilot Iroshizuku Tsuki-yo for a really decent sum of less than $20. That said, I'm not sure if that kind of a deal will always be around. Has anyone tried to approximate it using some basic inks? I think I've come close with mixing a bit of Pelikan Blue, Green, and Turquoise, along with a hint of Lamy Black, but it's still not quite there yet. Any other simple recipes for other Iroshizuku inks?
  7. http://www.rdwarf.com/users/wwonko/images/fpn/iro/01-Tsuki-yo-Moonlight-Header.png Iroshizuku - Tsuki-yo (Moonlight) - CRV - Group Review - 2014-10 The Iroshizuku Group Review color for October 2014 is Tsuki-yo ”Moonlight”. It is a dark blue, recalling the night sky when lit by the full moon. Please post your reviews and scans of the ink in this thread. If you want to a partner for a Co-Razy View (CRV) of this ink, please write it up and mail it to Lou Erickson. (PM for the address.) If you want to do a Co-Razy View on your own, please do! Other reviews are welcome, too. You can look at
  8. This arrived today. *glee!* I have three more inks incoming: Edelstein Amethyst, whenever it arrives from Germany, and Diamine Oxblood and Red Dragon (reds, maroons, and dark purples... all right up my alley) from Goulet Pens. And here's my quick and dirty sample sheet. I had a Raphael watercolor brush sitting by that I use for other inks, so I wet it and used it. The first little "kosumosu" comment was my attempt to dip a pen that apparently wasn't clean. Oh well! Tested on Midori MD notebook paper, which seems to hold wets really well. No major bleed-throughs. These inks are real

    Iroshizuku Feathering

    Friends, I've noticed one phenomenon that holds true across pens, nib widths, flow, and choice of paper: take-sumi is more prone to feathering that tsuki-yo. If one pen can't handle take-sumi, I ink it up with the tsuki-yo and the problem of feathering is solved. For this reason, I use the tsuki-yo as a "therapeutic" ink. Has anyone had this experience? I have only used these two inks. Would you be able to rank feather-proneness across the inks? More importantly, how does Kon-peki do when compared to take-sumi or tsuki-yo? Thanks!
  10. I'm thinking maybe Diamine Twilight Blue or even Eau De Nil could be a reasonable substitute for Tsuki-yo. What are you thoughts? Have any of you used or use a good substitute colour ink instead of Tsuki-yo? I'm addicted to it, It's an incredible ink and colour. I'm not saying I use a lot because i don't. In fact I bought a bottle in July 2012 and I still have half of it left and I write in my journal every day now. (Of course thats mixed colours between MB Royal Blue, MB Irish Green and Waterman Florida Blue)
