First off, let me say...

First off, let me say that JetPens is one of the best retailers online or otherwise I have ever dealt with. Even when a review is unfavorable, they still post it. I cannot say this about everyone. Service is swift and items are well packaged. They have great prices and many unique items.

As far as Fuyu-Gaki ink, it is wonderful. It has a deep, rich tone to it. Great for getting others attention. I have been using it in my Pelikan M205 with a BB nib. Great saturation. Have not noticed a lot of shading though. even on 80 gram Rhodia or 90 gram Clairefontaine paper. Maybe it's not supposed to. If you are using an inexpensive paper, do not expect to be able to use the backside.

I have also tried it in my Large Delta Dolce Vita with a fine nib. Very nice, wet line even with a fine nib.

One thing I don't understand is the translation from Japanese to English on the names of the ink. I have seen this ink called Japanese Sweet Persimmon but also Winter Persimmon. I have noticed this on some of the other Iroshizuku inks as well.

Whatever you call it, call it great.

This is a great color. Depending on paper it's anything from a deep dark orange to a very crisp red orange to a interesting shade of red.. It is a beautiful color for peer reviewing and mocking up documents. Easy to see and not as offensive as red.

The new ink from pilot...
June 25, 2010
The new ink from pilot writes a wet line. I have a Pelikan 205 clear demonstrator that is sometimes iffy with ink once it is filled. I do not have that problem now with the new pilot ink. The pen writes the first time, all the time. I have the purple-blue ink. Nice color.

Wow--this is gorgeous ink. It flows well and washes-out of the pen and feed with minimal effort. I was initially concerned the colour might be somewhat anemic because it looks so transparent in the bottle, but it was not the case. Overall, expensive for ink, but worth the price for the color and flow.

Fabulous persimmon colored ink of the highest quality and, like everything from Jet Pens, lovingly packaged and received in mint condition.
