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 blue!

Very nice case, it stands up well on my desk and I can easily see the 5 or 6 pens and pencils inside. Two things that I don't like: (1) the inner mesh pocket could have been the entire depth, but they made it only half -- not deep enough to store Pilot ink cartridges or lead pencil refills; (2) the zipper sometimes gets stuck at the top and I can't zip it closed without fiddling with it a lot (after only 2 months of use).

Superb ink, wonderful rich dark brown color. Use it primarily to take notes in a Lamy 2000 with EF nib, which is close to a Pilot F nib. On some paper in looks darker than others, like any ink will exhibit shade qualities. But overall, the nicest ink I have purchased this year. I will be looking at other Iroshizuku colors when my budget allows...

Scratchy and dry! I suppose I got a bad one, based on the other good reviews here. I have both nice (Namiki vanishing point) and cheap (Sailor ink-bar) fountain pens, which are wonderful, but this Pilot Penmanship is the worst pen I have ever used. If I took a straight pin and dipped it in ink, it would still produce a more useful line than this pen.
