Iroshizuku - Fuyu-Syogun (Old Man Winter) - CRV - Group Review - 2015-02

The Iroshizuku Group Review color for February 2015 is Fuyu-Syogun ”Old Man Winter”. It is a cool grey, reminding me of the endless grey skies of the Seattle winters I grew up with.

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.
NOTE: I have a new address as of January! If you have sent me things in the past, please PM for the new address - the old one will stop forwarding eventually.
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.
More thanks to Amberlea who gives so much of her time to herding these inky kittens.
Please PM me with any questions. I'll admit this month's ink does little for me, yet I know there are people who adore it. Show me what I'm missing! :)

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

Didn't I send this letter to you for a CRV?

There's a good chance, and a good chance that letter, along with the rest of the contents of my desk, are in a box. Somewhere in my house. And as soon as it surfaces, I'll reply.

 

I'm embarrassed that I've gotten things like this put off from the move, but I'm more wondering what I did with my W-2... :)

 

I put this ink in a narrower, wetter nib and it comes up darker, which I liked. Pelikan 140 for the win.

This looks like a nice bluish grey. Does anyone know if the colour is similar to MB Midnight Blue?

I got a CRV from Stonezebra, and contrasted it with two other grays:

My Stormy Gray really blobbed gold. Maybe something went a little wrong with the cheap, no-name pen.

I remember Fuyu-Syogun's easy use and blue undertone. Mayyybe another sample, or a bottle....

 

At any rate thanks to Stonezebra for the CRV and Lou for setting this up!

Go for the bottle! Glad you enjoyed it. Nice contrast between the 2 colors, the PIFS really shows off its blue tendencies next to a true grey.
