A well-loved ink with many reviews here on FPN, such as this one. Couldn't resist to dedicate another topic to it, not a review but more of an appreciation thread.

This isn't just sheen, not just a haloing effect... this stuff is two colors at once depending on where you look. Add to that it's wonderful other properties.... wow.

❤️ This was my very first ink. When I first started with fountain pens, well I had just one pen, and I believed that you needed just one ink — a black one. I kind of branched out on the colors (haha!). Whenever I fill a pen with black ink I also feel that whatever beings written is more serious.

 

Thanks for the reminder about this ink. I'll fill my original pen with it...1522512250_Kiwaguro2.thumb.jpeg.da1f10024f7510455dc9de0db7932146.jpeg596198550_Kiwaguro1.thumb.jpeg.0241832de1b837a2508946761ddc75d1.jpeg

How do you like your original pen/ink combo now, compared to when you first started out with the hobby?

My favorite black ink for writing now.  I resisted it for a long time, but I too love the silver sheen and the flow quality.  For drawing, I still prefer cool-toned black inks like Iro Take Sumi: beautiful wash with coppery sheen.

“I admit it, I'm surprised that fountain pens are a hobby. ... it's a bit like stumbling into a fork convention - when you've used a fork all your life.”

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
