I gave "Sailor - Manyo Shirakashi" another try yesterday...nope nope NOOOOOPE.
I still hate it.
Dumped that ink-fill down the sink and switched-up to "Sailor - Ink Studio #162" as soon as I got home yesterday.
Still rocking #162 today and LOVING it...why did I ever leave?

I just looked Manyo Shirakashi up and I *quite* understand your opinion of the color....

I always try to step away from inks that I don't initially love...and give them a try at a later date. It works for scents...I figured it would work for inks as well because body chemistry changes over time.
I think that it's just a universal experience that I do not like olive green, murky olive green or very deep green...though I love lighter and mid-tone shades of green ("Vinta - Sirena", "Yoseka - Origin.01", "Sailor - Ink Studio #162", "Montblanc - Irish Green")
All of the inks that I've had in that range just turn me off.
From "Penbbs-#502 (The Rains), to "Monteverde - Malachite", to "Sailor - Manyo Shirakashi" .....they all are just horrid to me. 🤮


(Hah!! The puke emoji has that same nasty green!!)

You are going to come around to these types of greens (well, maybe not Monteverde Malachite...) - may take a long time but you will. Just don't compare them to your favored greens - yes, they are all green but they are worlds apart. (I'd gladly take Penbbs 502 and Shirakashi off your hands if I still lived in the US! Wish I could source 502 at a reasonable price from where I live - looks superb - right up my alley.) 

 

 

Script nib for writing screenplays. • Fine nib for my best writing. • Extra fine for my *very* best writing. • Medium for requesting a séance. • Bold for adventure stories. • Manifold for many various types of writing. • Coarse for indignant letters. • Oblique for making a point in a roundabout way. • Italic when I'm inclined. • Stub for when I intend to leave a manuscript unfinis

Lamy 'Topaz' crystal, KWZ IG Blue black and KWZ 'Warsaw Dreaming' Black blue! No way to finesse it.. there's a commotion outside. It's an intense, stormy night here and these are my tempestuous colours!

Happy pages to you!  So far I have found only one writing sample of Tungsten Violet online, and it looks alluring.

 

Today I am writing with Sailor Kobe Suma Purple, my favorite ink (and not unlike Ink of the Witch).

 

I am also using Robert Oster Barossa Grape, having finally found an extra-fine nib wet enough for that ink to be legible.

 

And, in my brush pen, TAG Kyoto Nurebairo, a black that is really the darkest of blues.

This might be kindv large, but resizing lost ink detail.

 

I became slightly fixated on finding a pink ink to match the rhodochrosite. I don't know why, but I went with it. I like it!

Hm. The ink lost detail, anyway, just from rotating the image. The words written in Pilot Blue look green-leaning or tealish, which the ink is not. That's the one that caught my attention immediately. The others are close enough.

Are Pilot Blue and Namiki Blue the same ink?

Noodler's American Aristocracy. A sometimes maroon, sometimes brown, bottle of madness

Picked this up on Sunday at the most incredible stationary shop in London's Covent Garden - CHOOSING KEEPING. (You MUST visit)

I fell for the colour knowing it'd play well with my Gris Nuage style washes when sketching. What I didn't do was read the small print. 😬

Fast drying invariably means feathering 😩

 

Thankfully it doesn't feather on my watercolour paper but it does on pretty much everything else I've tried apart from Tomoe River.

Bah! I wanted that one to be a usable ink. Given the history it could be due to some animosity from a certain Yankee. 😉

Thanks for the warning.

Pen is filled with "Sailor - Manyo Nadeshiko" and it's soooo pleasant to write with.
From flow, to appearance, to feel...just wonderful.
