I love this ink! On some papers it looks more silver than gray.

Every time I look at the above sample I seem to see a different shade making it hard to put my finger on exactly what it is! Or maybe that's the drink!

I also love this ink. I use it with fine nibs on CF and Rhodia and find it superb in every respect.

Thanks for posting this review. I like all the iroshizuku inks. This is a good one.

I'm still trying to figure out how to list all my pens down here.

Thanks for the review.

I thought I would like this one, but I found it a little too pale; plus I never got the lovely blue undertones that everyone seems to get in reviews. :(

Excellent review!

 

....And oh look...I have a tree for this! I agree...it's an interesting blue grey. Some days I like it and other days I find it's just too cold for me.

 

Wow, that is gorgeous. Do you do others with different inks?

Yes...I've been working my way through my bottles and samples. It could take a while...especially since more keep arriving dispite my best intentions to not buy any more. :roller1:

 

They can generally be found here if you are curious: http://pirau.tumblr.com/

That is a dangerous link, you make every ink ever look amazing. You should start a thread just for them.

Thank-you once more. The ink is the inspiration!

My thanks for your kind words regarding the trees. I find the same thing happens when I am looking at some of the beautiful handwriting around FPN. Part of my adoration of FP ink is the way it behaves. It's not like slapping down paint...it's moves. It has a living quality that continues to change from the moment it touches the paper.

 

When someone puts cadmium red paint on a canvas ...it stays cadmium red. A thousand people can put the same colour on a 1000 different surfaces and it is will remain the same colour...whether it's applied with a brush, a stick, a finger...who cares?.... It's cadmium red...today, next week...next year.

 

Ink ...has a mind of it's own. It hates some nibs and dances with others. It will fight some paper and make love to others. It's a fickle creature and I facinated with it.

 

Regarding a thread dedicated to them....a fountain pen friend had suggested the same thing but I need advice where to stick such a strange hybrid art/ink sample thread? Any thoughts?

 

*My apologies mhphoto for hyjacking your lovely review*

Such a beautiful drawing and it really shows off this subtle and lovely ink

      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
