You didn't mention the sheen. It's got one, I think that's where the Copper Pheasant comes in. What's on the screen is a very accurate depiction of what's in my pen. I like it a lot.

Yama-dori does lean towards green. It's one of my favorite inks, and the one that got me into teals.


Great review!

So many inks, so little time...

Nice job, one of my favorite inks.

"how do I know what I think until I write it down?"

Wonderful review! Thank you!

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

Nice review!


Is it just me, or are the Japanese blues the most beautiful? I have Kon-peki and I'm always amazed at how pretty it is. Of course, I haven't dared to try "The Ink That Shall Not Be Named" and I even know, as a newbie, what ink that is, too.
