Which Pilot Colours Are Your Favourite?

Recommended Posts

It has been suggested to me by pseudo88 that I should poll everyone to see what their favourite pilot inks are as I guide to which inks to stock. I thought about creating a poll but it would have too many choices, so if you feel like letting me know reply with your fav inks. I'd really appreciate it.

I did wonder about you stocking Diamine as they make so, so, so many colors. Iroshizuku (INMHO) may be the best ink line out here and comes in only 24 colors so you could conceivably stock the entire line. Yama-Budo, Asa-Gao, and Ku-Jaku are my favorites in that order.

 

BTW a very similar poll has already ben done here https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/290775-pilot-iroshizuku-full-line-24-inks/

Yama-budo, Yama-guri, Kon-peki, Take-sumi, and Tsuyu-kusa. Probably mostly in that order.

My favorite Pilot ink is fairly boring: Pilot Blue Black. I appreciate Kon-peki and Shin-Kai, but I still with the non-Iroshizuku inks on a day to day basis.

Currently inked:

- Pilot Custom 743 <M> with Pilot Black

- Pelikan M120 Iconic Blue <B> with Pilot Blue

- Lamy Studio All Black <M> with Pilot Blue-Black

My favorite is Murasaki Shikibu, but threads like this have taught me it is one of the least popular of the line.

 

To my mind, it differs from other inks in the same color range in that it has a distinctly floral feel. I always use it around this time of year, when the plum trees outside my window are in bloom.

Fuyu-Syogun, Take Sumi, and Kon-Peki for me!

Another vote for Tsuki-yo!

I use Pilot Parallel Pen Mixable Color (PPPMC) cartridges in my red Pilot Falcon SF pen. They work fine. Jes changed from red to black. No problems. One line, all is fine!

 

OTOH, one of the Iroshizuku samples faded on me (same age as the PPPMC cartridges). I tossed it, so do not recall the color. I think it was a blue the faded to gray.

 

I still have two reddish Iroshizuku colors I've yet to try. They look good. ;)

Yu-yake is my bias.
