Iroshizuku - Ku-jaku (Peacock) - CRV - Group Review - 2015-05

The Iroshizuku Group Review color for May 2015 is Ku-jaku ”Peacock”. It is a blue-green, which seems to vary a lot in color based on pen and paper and even has sheen in the right combination - very like the flashy tail of the bird it is named for.

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.
Many apologies for the lateness of the post this month. It's been a busy time. I hope you've tried the ink out and have something to share!

Sailor Kenshin

This is one of my favorite inks, and the hue one of my favorite all-around colors. It's now in an Aquamarine LE Safari with B nib due to my obssession with matching ink and barrel colors.

 

The Prussian Blue is much darker and more gray than appears in this scan, but the Anonymous Turquoise is pretty much accurate.

And a simple paper towel chroma.... I expected a more spectacular corona. I can see hints of green or chartreuse at the edges, though.

Rhodia dot paper. Behaves well on all papers, shows good shading, love the color. What more could you ask of an ink?

 

I'm not sure why the flow seemed just a touch reluctant in the Safari; I remember this ink as being generous. Maybe I'll test it in another pen soon.

 

Be careful...one ink leads to another! ;)

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

Hey Lou, didn't I send some sheets to you?

I hope someone will post a picture demonstrating the sheen. I haven't observed it yet, on any paper.

Hey Lou, didn't I send some sheets to you?

Yes. They're on my desk, with a large number of other important things. I am behind in getting them handled.

 

You even sent the original sheet of Lloyd's, which is pretty in person. One day, I hope to be organized enough to make my own similar sheet.

Beautiful!!!

 

I have not yet tried this ink, but I really want to. It looks so lovely!! I also want to try the Moonlight one too. Both look like really nice inks! (Well of course they are Iroshizuku....lol)

      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.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
