Product Description

Color: Cerulean Blue

From a culture that has revered the art of writing for more than a thousand years comes instruments and accessories that celebrate both writing and art. Namiki Iroshizuku Fountain Pen Inks are created using the highest standards and variations of color. The name "iroshizuku" is a combination of the Japanese words "iro" meaning coloring, and "shizuku" meaning droplet. It expresses the variations of color embodied in the image of dripping water. Each ink name is derived from the expressions of beautiful Japanese natural landscapes and plants, which all contribute to the depth of each individual hue. Enjoy the rich and subtle colors of Japan with every stroke of your pen. For every creative endeavor, Namiki provides the ultimate writing tools.

From the Manufacturer

Iroshizuku--The Inspiration

The name "Iroshizuku" is a combination of the Japanese words "Iro" meaning Coloring, expressing high standards and variation of colors, and "Shizuku" meaning Droplet, which embodies the very image of dripping water. Each ink name derives from the expression of beautiful Japanese natural landscapes and plants, all of which contribute to the depth of each individual hue. Enjoy the rich and subtle colors of Japan as you write.

A Beautiful Spectrum of Nature-Inspired Hues

Pilot Iroshizuku Bottled Fountain Pen ink is offered in a beautiful spectrum of 24 nature-inspired hues ranging from Azalea Pink (Tsutsuji) to Bamboo Charcoal (Take-sumi.) Pilot's premium water-based fountain pen ink is created using the highest standards for eye-catching variations of color.

Iroshizuku ink has been carefully formulated for use in your most treasured fountain pens. As fountain pens can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars, it's important to use an ink worthy of the caliber of your investment. Pilot's Iroshizuku ink is a fountain pen ink you can use with confidence so nothing gets in the way of your personal writing expression.

The Iroshizuku Bottle--Functional Elegance

Each artfully designed Iroshizuku ink bottle is individually made from hand-blown glass. Due to the nature of the glass-blowing process, each bottle contains subtle variations in the shape of the interior ink reservoir, making each bottle into a work of art, with no two bottles exactly the same.

The expertly designed Iroshizuku bottle also features an angled notched bottom which allows fountain pens to drink up every drop of ink. An elegant paper label with the Japanese name of the ink color, a knotted silver cord, and a faceted black cap embellish the glass bottle. Each bottle contains 50 ml of premium fountain pen ink for lasting enjoyment of your favorite fountain pens.

Customer Reviews

Wonderful rich brown color in a very fine flowing and high quality Japanese ink.
MDL San Diego
Ink is very well behaved - flows nicely, dries fast - using it on Rodia which is great.
Chris Korody
It looks very deep blue when it is first applied and then it turns more teal in color.

Color Name: Burnt Orange Verified Purchase
The one complaint I hear from many people who haven't tried this ink and the reason most haven't tried it is becasue of the price. True it is fairly expensive compared to many other good inks but the pleasure of writing with it makes up the difference and more. Compared to other more expensive inks this seems like a bargain. I have had the pleasure of trying most of the colors in this collection and I really do like all of them but orange is my favorite color so I am naturally drawn to this color. For purposes of this review however, I will talk about the characteristics and quality that represent the whole line of colors (I have not tried the newest colors released a couple of weeks ago in the US).

One of the characteristics many fountain pen users appreciate in their inks is how well the shade. I believe these to be some of, if not, the best ink for that particular quality. I also love the fact that they are all heavily saturated, and offer unique colors. I have not officially timed their individual dry times but I can tell you that they are not remarkably quick drying inks. So they are not inks that you would want to take quick notes with if you have to close your notebook quickly. Another issue for some people will be their lack of waterproofing. Which I assume also means they are not the best for check writing or important documents. But for times when you are writing for pleasure and want to enhance that pleasure with some beautiful ink this is a wonderful choice.

Besides the beauty the ink offers Pilot has really gone over the top with their packaging and bottle. The Japanese influence in the design and craft of the product from start to finish is noticeable. As a whole this is a wonderful product that has been made with attention to detail.

Color Name: Cerulean Blue
Pilot's Kon-Peki is one of the gold-standards of the blue ink crowd; a faction I'm proud to say I run in. Good blue is so subjective, hard to get what you love, so many shades, so many nuances of the 'perfect' blue. But in the world of a Cerulean Blue (more teal-like in practical visuals) Kon-Peki stands strongly in almost everyone's top ten list. So for color purity, saturation and vibrance it's top shelf, all the way.

However, as much as I just adore this ink, it's relegated to a shelf at my house. I've used it in several 'M' nibs, several 'F' nibs and two 'EF' nibs. And even in the 'EF' nib, it's the wettest ink I've EVER used. And that's saying something.

My normal writer, day-to-day, is a LAMY 2000 with an EF nib. Now, admittedly, this pen is a legendarily wet-writer. But with an EF nib and using any other ink at all, it's dirt reliable in Rhodia and Moleskine notebooks. Fill it with Kon-Peki and the split personality (Jekyll and Hyde)of this ink shows up fast. Writing in a Moleskine, with an EF nib again, not only does it feather, it does what I've always called 'tree-branching' which is feathering that is so bad, the lines form other lines and look like a tree's branches! That doesn't even cover the fact that the bleed through on the other page makes the rear page unusable!

Now, take this same ink, put it in ANOTHER pen, this time a Waterman with a F nib (NOT a notoriously wet writer, fact is, kind of dry) and write on a legal pad. You'll write about one sentence and it is honestly like writing on toilet paper or facial tissue...it blops, glops and is absorbed so bad, it's almost laughable.

It seems as if I'm being hard on this ink as a reviewer. I'm not. I LOVE this ink and the color is truly a world standard of blue.

Color Name: Deep Turquoise Verified Purchase
This is a very beautiful ink. It looks very deep blue when it is first applied and then it turns more teal in color. It reminds me of an old ink named Peacock Blue, which is no longer available. Unlike blue/black inks which are dead, this color is alive and vibrant.

I am using it in a very fine vintage 18k Mont Blanc 149, which was just overhauled and it has great flow. It certainly does not skip. It appears to take a bit longer to dry than my Pelikan Turquoise, which in comparison, while lighter in color is also lighter in density.

The shipping was very prompt. The price of this ink is high, but that is offset by the free shipping. If this same ink is purchased from, for example, Malasia, it is much less, but when the shipping is added, the price is about the same and the ink appears at the door much faster since our government has placed liquid restrictions on air freight, so, it is my understanding, the ink has to travel by ground.

I have one pen (a Pelikan 1000) filled with Pelikan Turquoise and one ( Mont Blanc 149) filled with ku-jaku. They both are beautiful inks, but the ku-jaku has more depth, is more interesting, and appears more formal. Ku-jaku also copies better then the turquois.

Color Name: Vermillion Red
The color of the ink was one of the best red ink colors that I have ever experienced. The quality, flow, and density of this ink for writing is just perfect. I will buy this over and over!

This ink flows nicely and has the brightest, most vibrant blue color. It dries true and looks amazing on the page.

Color Name: Cerulean Blue Verified Purchase
This ink (I purchased the Kon-Peki/deep blue) is well worth its hefty price tag. The color looks bright and distinctive. I'm a big fan of blue ink pens, and I've been looking for a light blue that is not too bright to the point that it hurts my eyes to read what I've written. Well not this one, Pilot has done a really great job in making these Iroshizuku ink series. It dries really quick on all papers that I own (from journal papers to super cheap scrap papers.) I can't say anything about its waterproof quality, I might have to try that. It's more expensive than most fountain pen inks, but I think it's worth every penny.

If you somehow end up here without having a fountain pen, trust me, go buy one and find out for yourself why people still write with a technology that's at least 50 years old. I just tried one this summer and now I'm a convert.
