After using a lot of the well-known medium blues from Sailor, Private Reserve,
Parker and others, I was really looking for a blue that was different -- without
being eccentric or weird. This is it. Beautiful color, not as light as the
package depicts. Look at the scans here on Jet Pen of the Iroshizuku colors --
they match almost exactly with what I get from a Pilot Vanishing Point (m)
fountain pen. This ink does run a bit wet, compared to my other blues, and on
Moleskine notebooks using the medium nib, it does make two-sided writing
difficult. Will switch to a fine nib, rather than switch inks. My new favorite

The color is okay. I expected to be more impressed based on the price/reviews.

One of the few inks in this brand that I give 4 stars instead of 5. The ink goes
on beautifully, but as it dries, the color becomes a little flat in shade. The
other colors in this brand have had intense colors, but this is one of the few
that I prefer from a relatively fine nib [OM] as opposed to my larger B or OBB
nibs. Gorgeous while wet, but again, a tad pastel as it dries. Just dull enough
that it may be work appropriate in some offices.
The behavior matches that of other shades in this brand. Nice flow, behaves well
on a variety of papers. I'm using this in expensive pens and no staining or nib
creep so far.
I'll buy more, I think, but not as quickly as the "purer" colors in the rest of

This shade of Iroshizuku is a beautiful shade of a dark blue with a very subtle,
sophisticated touch of green. Works beautifully in my Lamy 2000. Solid and not
too flashy, and it is suitable for formal business documents
