Iroshizuku - Kosumosu (Cosmos) - CRV - Group Review - 2015-04

The Iroshizuku Group Review color for April 2015 is Kosumosu ”Cosmos”. It is pink, pinker than the scan above is showing, full of life and springtime. It is named after a pretty wildflower, and if you look at the pictures you'll see why.

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 was not expecting this ink to be quite this pink, but it's a very attractive color and is definitely springlike.

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

My scanner's been hijacked by the Giant Eight Billion Family Slides Digitization Project. Sorry about the poor excuse for a photo, but I LOVE this pink. It is the essence of spring, and glides in the Hero 359 test pen. The hue and flow seem perfect to me. And April is the right time to use the last drops of my sample.

Maybe at the end of the project I can do a proper scan.

My other pen is a Montblanc and...

Vis - I love your reviews. I must say however, that something is wrong with your sample of kosumosu because your color is looks muddy and perhaps even grayish. This ink is CLEAR BRIGHT and much lighter than your pictures show.

As a note, a friend of mine who speaks Japanese explained the name "Kosumosu". It's the closest Japanese can get to "Cosmos". The C becomes a K to get the right sound, and two consonant syllables aren't allowed, so a "u" is added. It is literally "Cosmos" rendered into Japanese, "Kos-u-mos-u".

 

And, of course, he found the definition quickly, too. I kept thinking "cosmos" like the giant space full of galaxies and stars, but it isn't, it's cosmo-s, the plant genus, including all kinds of wildflowers like the daisy.

 

Mystery explained!

@Amber - thank you. It may well be the case but on the other hand I've taken the sample directly from the new bottle of the ink.

 

Wow, what a total bummer. I'd send that bottle back.

I was surprised I had this many similar colors.

 

I was surprised too when I tried Flamingo Pink and fell in love.

      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.
