Behaves beautifully in nib sizes ranging from B to OBBB. Runs a little darker in the narrower nib, fantastic shading the wider the nib. I was worried this color would be too light, but it's just barely dark enough for letters or journals. Flow is excellent. A very well-behaved ink. Haven't left it long term in a demonstrator or clear ink window to check for staining, but I'd rate this very close to the J. Herbin inks for maintenance and safety in high end pens.

I'm really enjoying this entire series of inks. Haven't found a bad one yet and I'm up to 8 different colors in this brand.

Another winner in the Iroshizuku line. I love this color so much. It's lighter than I usually go for, but it's such a happy color that I can't help but like it...and look for places where I can use it. I have 2 pens inked with it now. In my flex-nibbed gusher, this does show some feathering and bleedthrough on cheap paper. With my Maruman paper (also from Jet Pens) it is beyond incredible, just really beautiful...like new grass growing in the spring :) In my drier-nibbed pens, chiku-rin is as solid as any Iro ink, no feathering, no bleedthrough. This is just a joy to use.

This is extremely beautiful ink. I love the color and whole product design, from cape, glass bottle and color. This is speechless beautiful ink. This one may be more expensive than others but definitely worth a penny. Going to get other colors in my next order.

Outstanding ink! The color is light but still very legible in the right application. The pigmentation is great considering the light nature of this color...

My favorite Iroshizuku is still Yama Budo (wild grapes) followed by tsukushi (horsetail brown).

Very pretty yellow-green, dark enough to be readable in a pilot petit1 / lamy safari F, though I'm not sure about a Japanese EF. Has some shading on Tomoe River paper.
