I really like Iroshizuku inks, but I’m not really a fan of pink (or magenta, or whatever this is). The ink goes down smooth and consistent, just like the rest of the Iroshizuku inks I’ve tried. The bottle they come in is really great looking on an ink shelf or in a desk. While this isn’t really my cup of tea (I prefer coffee anyway), it’s a nice ink. Sometimes purples and pinks can be a bit hairy in terms of legibility, but this ink is the right shade to where it can be easily read. If you’re into the color, I would definitely suggest checking it out. Iroshizuku inks are an absolute pleasure to look at, clean out, and write with.
Thanks for reading, enjoy!
- Dark enough pink/purple to be easily read
- Iroshizuku performance
- Packaging and bottle
- It’s pink, and I’ll probably never use it again
