Murasaki Shikibu (Japanese Beautyberry) - CRV - Group Review - 2015-06

The Iroshizuku Group Review color for June 2015 is Murasaki Shikibu ”Japanese Beautyberry”. It is a clear purple, neither blue nor violet, light enough to be usable in large areas but not too thin to read with a fine nib.

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.
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 is always such an inky enabler.
Please PM me with any questions. I look forward to seeing everyone's results! :)
I apologize for the lateness, as it has been a busy month. I hope everyone's been having purple thoughts!

GREAT STUFF!!!

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

Written in a notebook that's not especially ink-friendly, but not terrible.

The same notebook. It's where I put my unending ink-related thoughts.

And sheen, because a folded nib dumps a LOT of ink on the page, and we might as well enjoy it, right?

ChewyTulip, your expertise is needed, can you talk to us about folded nibs?

ChewyTulip, is that a violet KK-Ink? I love my Kara's Kustom pens!

Oh, I love the Karas Kustom Ink pen too! It's their pink one, which looks waaaaaaay more magenta in real life than their photos. Happily, I am also a fan of magenta!

AH, yes, I have a pink and violet which are still visiting Art. I miss them. Right now, I have two greens, an orange and an aluminum on my desk. Great pens.

      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
