Pilot Iroshizuku Tsutsuji – a lazy review

Colour: Hot pink, or magenta — more so than Pelikan Edelstein Star Ruby, although when Tsutsuji is laid thickly/wetly on the page it can look similar
Flow: Moderate
 
Feathering: Not observed on Rhodia Dotpad 80g/m² paper, looking closely at the thinnest hatching lines, and words/glyphs ‘reverse-written’ with the nib upside-down (i.e. the bottom of the feed facing up)
Show-through: Low to nil
Bleed-through: Not observed
 
Drying time: 13–15 seconds
Smudging after fully dry: None, after I rubbed my thumb on the hatching/stippling and the Chinese hanzi panels on the review sheet (ten days after writing)
Water resistance: Poor
 
Shading: Very subtle; difficult to spot along a single pen stroke with no doubling over the ink mark and no intersecting tracks
Sheen: A tiny amount of orangey gold sheen can be seen in writing, but you really have to look closely and under a bright light of the right type for it
Shimmer: None

My thoughts: If I want to write in this colour with sheen, I'll probably use Lamy Vibrant Pink ink instead.

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

I was looking for a standalone phrase of five words in Chinese to write, that wasn't part of a poem, sutra or some such. I was also thinking about my excesses: the number of inks, pens, and unused Paperblanks journals that I have bought and am hoarding, so “excess is the greatest evil” came to mind, and rubbing people the wrong way with my usual manner in other online forums pales in comparison. 👿

I'm not inclined to a fresh comparison of several similarly hued colours in the process of producing an ink review these days, but I remember I'd done one a while back of retina-searing pink and magenta inks, and after a bit of digging I managed to find it.

The scan was done just in the past 24 hours, some fifteen months after the text was written. Note that the marks from Lamy Vibrant Pink, especially the “Six.” left of the margin, have already noticeably faded; not so with the writing in Pilot Iroshizuku Tsutsuji.

 

These were all done with the same two pens (one with a Fine nib, the other a Stub), so you can also see which ink is more apt to spread on the paper and cause thicker lines to be put down.

Not sure how or when the inline image went AWOL; but it's fixed now

For me it means more like "lust" or "desire" is the greatest evil than merely "excess". I've always understood it as about sexual conduct. 😂

Not sure about the others but I don't seem to be able to see this image here.

The classical meaning of that word is excess, and not specifically with regard to sexual or lewd behaviour (but does not exclude that either, of course). However, I do understand that In modern usage, that word usually refers to salaciousness.

 

I'm not sure when, how or why the inline image went missing. I even created and posted a how-to for inserting gallery images into a post yesterday, using that very post as the example for illustration!

You're absolutely right. I didn't realise that, but when I see dictionaries mention "富贵不能淫" I remembered.

 

I can see the image now. Thank you! R&K Magenta is such an underrated gem! It's not so retina-searing as Solferino but still a very bright and lovely colour.

      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.

      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.

      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
