, January 26, 2012
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.

Outstanding ink! The color is light but still very legible in the right
application. The pigmentation is great considering the light nature of this
My favorite Iroshizuku is still Yama Budo (wild grapes) followed by tsukushi

Hmmm... So much hype around the Iroshizuku inks. It is a pale and vibrant green,
I can see why they named it after Bamboo - very apt. It's a little too light for
my tast and having written a few pages of it in my work journal feel it is too
pale. I considered making further investment into some blue ink to mix in,
however have decided to stick with my Private Reserve avocado or spearmint which
hostly suit my personal taste better. The colour is a lot more 'vibrant'. The
flow from the Private Reserve I prefer. Better lubricity in my opition. I
concede this may be the pen which is my Duofold with M nib. It's very personal
thing I guess. Decided to sell my Chiku Rin on eBay. An expensive experiment.

I'm not a hard-core ink/pen expert and don't really know the difference between
good or bad paper (disclaimer). I am underimpressed. The green is very light
and I don't understand why this ink costs so much. It is nice, but I can't say
I notice the difference compared to much cheaper inks.
