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 the full description of the Iroshizuku Group Review to see how this should work and what we’re doing.

Thanks to Rachel Goulet, who gave permission to me to use their beautiful product photo and swab.
Thanks to Amberlea again, who had the ink on hand in time to write the attractive banner.
Let the reviews begin! :)

This is so exciting. I sent you a letter with T-Y, did you get it?

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

SO GLAD I saw this and can get in on the ground floor.

These are actually a FEW of the ONLY reasons to look forward to winter: Fuyu-syogun & Fuyu-Gaki! :thumbup:

Cyber 6.........GREAT POST, thanks! All parts of a review are important to someone, but how the ink actually looks on paper is HUGE.

Just realized I have a sample of Tsuki-yo. So PM sent for the co-razy view style letter.

 

I'm also hoping to get the time to do a short written review for this thread as well.

So many inks, so little time...

You mean it's not just how it looks in the bottle? (jk)

I did, which was delightful. I haven't replied because my ink hadn't come in. It arrived Friday. Yesterday and this morning are full; hopefully this evening I will have time to reply properly!

Aren't you forwarding it on to another reviewer? Maybe I"m confused?

If I get any more, I will! Clearly I wasn't thinking it through when I replied to you there.

 

I haven't got any others yet! If you want to write in, please do!

Hi Lou,

 

lovely ink you have there. There are a lot of lovely Iroshizuku inks... Which i judged from the reviews here.

 

What is the price in the USA... In Holland it is a steep €40>>> $45....

 

That is what kept me away from buying

Das leben ist wie ein Perpetuum Mobile mit ein Mangel..... Immer im Bewegung jedoch nicht unendlich. (life is like a troubled Perpetuum Mobile ever moving but not for ever)

Tricked throughout the centuries...

For centuries people had been tricked by kings & "religion-alism"

In the 20th century people got tricked by communism

Today people get tricked by (neo)capitalism :)

Today turned crazy (I put in an offer on a house, not realizing it would devour my entire day!) Hopefully tomorrow will be less so and I can get a scan posted. I have a pen inked, and wrote some. I was going to do a CRV with Tsuki-yo and Namiki Blue, but the blue-black might be closer.

 

Shading, I think, too.

Today was not much less crazy - they accepted my offer on the house and I get to do a lot of paperwork - but I did manage to write up a CRV with myself so I could post something on the first of the month. :)

 

Lots of month left, so if you want to mail letters, please do! I have one here waiting for a home.

 

My CRV follows...

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
