Pilot Iroshizuku: Fuyu-gaki
Pen: Rotring 600 Lava
Ink: Pilot Iroshizuku fuyu-gaki
Paper: Kytokuto F.O.B. COOP B5 Dot Grid
Another day, another Iroshizuku is loaded up for review (I wish there was really one per day…). The time it’s Fuyu-Gaki, which translates to Winter Persimmon. This ink should not be confused with Yu-Yake (the other Iroshizuku orange) because of their similar name and similar color. Orange is one of my least favorite colors, not just for ink, but for life. I actually don’t mind this one though. There are elements of red and almost pink that blend with the yellow to make this ink stand out from the rest. It’s elevated above a standard orange. The ink itself is quite transparent, so expect to see the ruling on the page through your writing. It’s definitely not an every day use color, but it is fun for doodling or drawing. It may even fit in as an underlining ink. The Iroshizuku line has great performance across the board, and Fuyu-Gaki is no exception. While I don’t think I’ll be adding a bottle to the collection, I’m definitely enjoying the sample.
Also, thanks AGAIN to Azizah over at Gourmet Pens for sending me a sample!
Thanks for reading, enjoy!
