, August 25, 2010
My first order from JetPens & my first bottle of Pilot Iroshizuku ink. The ink
color is far more beautiful than samples I've seen, richer than the box label
shown and darker than the ink seen in pictures, a true Deep Turquoise with a
touch of green. The name Peacock is fitting as this color is very close to the
deep bluish-green seen in male peacock feathers. Bottle itself is a work of art
in glass, very heavy and well mastered glasswork. Order arrived 2 days after
shipping, clear across the continent, fast shipping. Thanks, JetPens, I will be

This is a great Turquoise Blue. The Iroshizuku ink is my favorite.

I've had this ink for about a week now and I'm really pleased with it. I bought
the "Pilot Prera Clear Body Fountain Pen - Fine Nib - Translucent Light Blue
Accent" to use it with. The color is great. Just the right amount of green to
go with this hue of blue. The ink flows very well, with little to no breaks in
line at all. The glass container it comes in is also very beautiful. It's
thick and heavy and the design of it is very attractive. Overall I do have to
say I'm very happy with it. I would definitely recommend it.

I've been searching for this color for a while, based on my memory of the
fountain pen ink my childhood piano teacher used to write my assignments. So
far all the other inks I have found are too 'turquoise' -- more blue than I
wanted. This beauty, though, has just enough green and I am liking it a lot.
It is definitely 'peacock' and not turquoise. This is my first Pilot
Iroshizuku ink (along with Momiji 'Autumn Leaves') and I must say I am bowled
over by the bottle, the whole presentation, on top of the yummy ink colors. I
am already fantasizing about my next purchase, which will be one of the greens.
So beautiful I have been leaving them out on my desk to admire daily.

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
