This is a nice chocolate-toned brown with the slightest hint of redness. Not
very dark, but not a light brown either. The shading is nice and it's thick and
smooth like the rest of the Iroshizuku ink.

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

, 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

I just received by bottle last night. Usual great service from JetPens. I
immediately filled by Namki Falcon fine point. I tried writing on
Clairefontaine Linicolor, Moleskine and even post-it-note paper. All I can say
The ink is as dark as others I have tried such as Aurora Black, Noodler's Black
and Borealis Black. It also writes as smooth as the Sailor Nano black ink.
