Pilot Iroshizuku Ink - 50 ml - Take-sumi Bamboo Charcoal (Black) - PILOT INK-50-TAK

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 is WOW!

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.
Pilot Iroshizuku Ink - 50 ml - Yama-budo Wild Grapes (Purple Magenta) - PILOT INK-50-YB

I saw the owner of Classic Fountain Pens using this ink to demo his Pelikan Blue o' Blue fountain pen and I fell in love with the color. After getting it from JetPens, I am not only thrilled with the color, I am thrilled with the performance of the ink.

Great saturation and shading. Very deep red color. Looks great on my moleskine's off-white paper.
Pilot Iroshizuku Ink - 50 ml - Fuyu-gaki Persimmon (Vermilion Red Orange) - PILOT INK-50-FG

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.
Pilot Fountain Pen Ink - 70 ml Bottle - Blue - PILOT INK-70-L
  I e-mailed JetPens and..., October 28, 2010
I e-mailed JetPens and requested that they suggest a true blue ink. I did not want any green, red or black shading. They suggested this ink from Pilot. I bought the blue and the black. They are indeed true colors and work well in any pen I use them in.
I like the design of the bottles so well, that I keep them on my desk.
My only complaint is that the plastic well inside catches on some of my pens and starts to come out of the bottle when I remove the pen.
Pilot S10 Drafting Pencil - 0.4 mm - PILOT HPS-1SR-TR4

I have many mechanical pencils. I use them but always return to my S-10's. I have all 5 and enjoy using all of them. I like the grip and the weight. I will probably reorder all 5 and just put them away in case any of them break and Pilot decides to discontinue them.

My favorites are the 4mm because I can write thin without the sensitivity of the 3mm. I also like the 7mm because I like the blue color and being able to write relatively boldly without the extremes of the 9mm.
Metaphys Locus 2 mm Lead Holder Refill - White - Set of 3 Pieces - METAPHYS 43021RWH
  Terrible stuff. Description..., August 18, 2009
Terrible stuff. Description says three packs. You actually get 3 pieces for $10.50. Lead is very hard and barely makes a perceptable mark. Disappointing product from JetPens.
