Here's my review of this ink.

 

The cut off sentence reads:

 

"...ink and its purchase I don't regret".

Is a nice green hue, surprisingly you mention is a dry ink, and this is interesting. The only other 2 Iroshuzu inks I've tried are Ok, not overly wet but they have good flow.

Thank you for the review.

Thank you for the review.

 

It suprised me too as the kon-peki didn't behave like this and the other reviews of this range are quite positive. To clarify, the ink looks wet, and while i found the flow slightly inconsistant, it never stopped flowing - it always left a line. However, for it lubricating the nib I found the nib very scratchy using this ink, hence the dry comments, which also seem to be backed in part with the drying time. It may perform better in a medium nib.

Following this review I have now used this ink in a different pan and found it a little moister than originally thought so it may well have been the nib of the pen I was using at the time that gave it a dry feeling.

@Phormio: Did you find that this ink stains your demonstrator?

 

I've put it in two of my converters and both times the ink left behind a slight blue-green tint.

It depends what you mean? Just after I finished using it i noticed a slight change in the colouration, and after cleaning there was a slight hue. But to be fair each ink I have put through a demonstrator has left a hue and I've come to the conclusion that no matter how thoroughly you clean a demonstrator some residue will always remain.

 

So no, I don't think this is a pen wrecking ink.

Just inked up a Falcon with Shin-ryoku....wow!...nice medium green. However , I'm seeing a very faint ?? hum... bluesomething?... while still wet...then it seems to be ...gone...when dry to the touch..after just a few seconds. ? The Falcon had no remnants of any other ink in it . The Falcon's " SM" nib lays down a silky smooth wet line. Shading is very subtle with m- flex,+ my constant light pressure. Shading can be much more dramatic with pressure applied differentially as desired. This pen & ink combination is impressive.

Nice review, this just confirms that the bottle I ordered from Japan was a good decision, going on this review a very good decision. Its definatley a great colour.

And how can this be, because he is the Kwisatz Haderach.

I was hesitant on getting a green, but I think this may be just the green I was looking for. Thanks for the excellent review.

Is it just me or does it start out more green/black and become more green as the sample continues? Which is accurate? Was the pen dipped or filled? Was it flushed out beforehand? Just curious what the right color to expect is.

Good question.

 

I had problems with that ink and pen combination. The real colour IMHO should be between the two.

 

Cheers,

I love green & bluegreen inks. I have found that almost BG inks leave

color on the plastic walls of almost all convertors with some variation

of course. For Example my platinum Jade's convertor is permanently

bluish-GREEN. Not a problem with me.

I have been searching for the 'perfect' green for quite some time, and for me this is it!

Pity it is so expensive, but shading, color, and color change between writing and drying is so amazingly beautiful!!

So true. A cheaper alternative is the MB Irish Green

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time
