Pilot Iroshizuku Kon-Peki & Asa-Gao


Recommended Posts

When I first began sampling various blue inks, I found that not all of the inks I liked performed well in my TWSBI Mini - F. Iroshizuku inks performed flawlessly for me in that pen but I didn't find quite the shade I was looking for. I ended up coming up with a mix of Kon-peki and Asa-gao that did what I wanted. My reciple is 5 parts Kon-Peki to 4 parts Asa-gao.


On Tomoe River white paper:




It also shades better than others I have on lesser papers such as HP 32# Laserjet:




Has anyone else tinkered with these two inks or similar?

Wow! That looks amazing. :puddle:


Oh boy. I may need to pick up Asa-gao to go with my Kon-Peki....


Not sure if I'm happy :D or sad :crybaby: (about my wallet)

Thank you for this idea! I have an unused bottle of Kon-Peki (I don't like the color) that now seems to be useful. ;)

OOOO, I wonder if this would be a good replacement for PPS. Feel like joining in our PPS comparison?

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