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.

Color: 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: Yellow Green Verified Purchase
I love chiku-rin! This is my second 50 ml bottle of pilot iroshiziku ink. The color is awesome and vibrant, the ink bottle is elegant. I've attached photos so you can see for yourself!
Before purchasing this bottle, I tried the 5 ml sample and love the color so much. Now after I got this large bottle, I even use it for my calculus homework :)

Color: Vivid Purplish Blue Verified Purchase
I've normally thought blue inks to be boring, and for several years used only blue/black inks, many of them Iron-Gall based. Did not like how IG inks would dry up quickly in the pens, and required extensive flushing on a regular basis. I saw a pen review online and the reviewer mentioned this ink as being in the pen at the time. I liked the deeply-saturated look of the ink, and how it popped off the pages. I ordered a bottle and inked up my driest pen; a MB 146 with EF nib. Boy was I impressed. Not only the color, but the performance. All of a sudden my once-dry, hard starting pen became a juicy pleasure to hold in my hand. Yes, pun fully intended. Not much I can say, since I am inept at describing colors, but picture the sapphire-blue Croatian waters of the Adriatic, and that's the color. Not water resistant or archival in any form, but is not advertised as such. The blue color is truly spectacular. Give it a shot. Oh, and the Iroshizuku bottles are beautiful.

Color: Dark Blue Verified Purchase
Picture: Surrounding text is written with the Shin-Kai. The three lines are a black papermate flexgrip, a blue Pilot G2, and then the Shin-Kai from my Lamy Safari with fine nib in that order.

I am by no means an expert. I have been writing with a Lamy Safari (and Lamy' standard ink) for about a year before moving to this ink. I am a pretty big fan of Lamy cartridges; their functionality, portability, and longevity are great.

----

This ink so expensive that I expected it to be flawless. However, it’s pale color and tendency to run through the pen quickly give me pause.

Cons:
-I wish the color was a bit more vibrant. Once put to paper, I would call the Shin-Kai "pale". Because of the rich and vibrant color of the ink within the bottle, I would have expected a deeper ocean blue.
-Thirsty: This could just be an effect of using a converter vs. cartridges (this is my first converter ink), but I find myself refilling the pen much more frequently than with cartridges.

Pros:
-Unique: Though I would change the color, I must admit that it is unique. I enjoy having an ink which I can tell apart from pretty much any other generic.
-Writes well: The ink's viscosity creates a nice variable shading effect when you are writing. Letters will have lighter & darker shades throughout their body, yielding neat patterns.
-I haven't really experienced a lot of drying within the nib. The ink flows well, and has good functionality for daily use.
-The ink bottle is stinking beautiful! I have it on my desk as a matter of pride.

Overall, this ink is a great choice and I have really enjoyed using it. The price is pretty high, so I’d give it 4.5/5 stars if I could.

Color: 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.
