    Sheening Purple Ink Mix

    A saturated, slightly dusty purple with strong gold sheen(the writing samples below were from a fairly dry pen). Not much shading but diluting with water and using a wetter pen may bring it out. I've had it in my pen for 2 days and the ink doesn't seem to be doing anything strange, not too sure about staining but none of the inks used in the mix usually stains much. I don't have the exact ratio but it's mostly pilot iroshizuku Yama budo with some shin-Kai and blue denim(Robert oster), possibly 4:1:1. Lubrication:4/5 Flow:4/5 Dry time:4/5 Water resistance:3/5(runs but definitely readable) No bleedthrough or feathering, slight show through on the copier paper. Sorry for the sloppy photos, I did try to take them in different lighting situations. I might try diluting it or playing with the ratio if anyone's interested. 😊
  2. I first saw this pen at the Ohio Pen Show. It wasn't for sale, but someone was showing it around. I loved it! The color is just gorgeous. From what I could discover, the color was designed to match one of their inks: Yama Budo. As I tried to find one, I discovered that they were only sold in Japan. The only way to get one was to find a way to buy one from someone in Japan. I did find one and order one off eBay. Then, I sort of panicked. You see, a few years ago I tried to find a Sailor Sapporo in the Hello Kitty design, and even though I bought one on eBay, it never came. I was afraid the same thing would happen, so I found a seller in Japan on Amazon and ordered second through them. Still convinced I wouldn't get one, I ordered a third. Honestly, I thought I would be lucky if I ever managed to get one. They are not only gorgeous, they are under $100 and have a 14K gold nib. Anyway, I waited, fully expecting to be lucky to even get one. As you can imagine, I didn't get one, I got all three. I'm a happy camper. They really are beautiful, and I don't mind having three of the same pen. http://i1114.photobucket.com/albums/k526/stylobug33/Pens%202014/IMG_1175_zps34c9e7cb.jpg http://i1114.photobucket.com/albums/k526/stylobug33/Pens%202014/IMG_1331_zps1f481a40.jpg http://i1114.photobucket.com/albums/k526/stylobug33/Pens%202014/IMG_1335_zps08d4c05e.jpg

    The Yb Romantic Club

    In the celebration of the long-running success of the thread, "Can a Man Use Yama Budo?", and partly because the words tutuguan and beungalings sound rather exotic and fancy (terminology courtesy of user GClef), there has been a talk of establishing YB Romantic Club. I am therefore starting this thread in an attempt to start the club and to celebrate the marvel of English language, love, and general silliness. Q: What does the club stand for? A: The name stands for Yama Budo Romantic Club. Q: What does the club do? A: The purpose is to write love letters in the hue of Yama Budo, released by Pilot as part of the Iroshizuku series. The addressee will be imaginary to save both parties from humiliation. Q: I don't have the ink! What do I do? A: You have two options. One is to use a similar colour and list the ink name. The other is to write a love letter but not as a tutuguan; meaning, you'd type it out on here, then use a font colour that you deem closest to the actual ink. Q: Do I get prizes and rewards? How about member subscription benefits? A: You will get the honour of having proficiency writing love letters. There are also imaginary keychains, iPhone cases, and T- shirts available (courtesy of user MisterBoll). Q: Can't it be just regular letters? A: Well, the entire purpose is to write as clingy and romantic and over-dramatic as possible, since not many of us have the chance to actually write like that in our daily lives and have them appreciated properly. If your letter can make Victorian ladies swoon, then you are an elite member of this club. (Yes, regular letters are allowed. ) Q: One of your letters was romantic, I want to use it to woo a lady/gentleman! May I? A: Please contact the writer of the particular letter directly for further inquiries. Q: Can the addressee be anyone? A: Anyone in the world, alive or dead, existent or imaginary. We do suggest, however, refraining from writing to such lovable characters as Mr Bean, unless you are a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer happily wedded to Rowan Atkinson. Q: This is a silly idea. A: That wasn't a question, but in response to your statement, "never stay up on the barren heights of cleverness, but come down into the green valleys of silliness". We oftentimes find the green valleys a rather pleasant place to stay for a while. Q: My handwriting isn't suited for love letters! A: We are certain the recipient of the letter won't mind. Q: Can I be an officer? A: Of course. Just make up a position title and let us know. Q: Can I copy out one of the famous love letters and upload it here? A: Of course. Just make sure to credit the original writer of the epistle. These are the rules/Q&A for now. This post will be edited and updated as see fit.
