Fantastic green with really nice shading. I love how it goes down very wet and
dark and then dries to a lighter, but still unique, hue. It's best in a wet nib,
for that reason. Sailor inks are always well behaved, and this one is no
I don't think you can wrong with a Lamy, particularly the Safari. The problems
the reviewer below had are rare. I've purchased 5 different Safaris, including
the white model - which I love - and had no trouble. The pen is of solid make
and design, durable, fun. With some fountain pen experience, I imagine any
trouble with the nib could be easily fixed with just a few tweaks. Don't let an
overall review score scare you away from this one. It's a fantastic pen.
Kon-peki is tied for my absolute favorite ink and has been for 2 years now. It
will always be in my pen cabinet and in my fountain pens. It's beautiful,
well-behaved. The best ink out there, in my opinion.
Another winner in the Iroshizuku line. I love this color so much. It's lighter
than I usually go for, but it's such a happy color that I can't help but like
it...and look for places where I can use it. I have 2 pens inked with it now. In
my flex-nibbed gusher, this does show some feathering and bleedthrough on cheap
paper. With my Maruman paper (also from Jet Pens) it is beyond incredible, just
really beautiful...like new grass growing in the spring :) In my drier-nibbed
pens, chiku-rin is as solid as any Iro ink, no feathering, no bleedthrough. This
is just a joy to use.
