Today I’m reviewing Pilot Iroshizuku kiri-same ink.
Kiri-same translates from Japanese to Autumn Shower and it is the slightly warmer grey of a rainy shower. It is a light grey ink that almost looks like it has a pinky/beige tinge in some light.
It didn’t suffer from any hard starts or non-starts when I put the uncapped pen down to do swab tests, dry times and water resistance. It started up straight away with no problem even after the pen had been filled for 3 weeks. It always behaved very well.
It dried within 15 seconds on the Clairefontaine Triomphe paper and didn’t smear after it was dry.
Available in attractive Pilot Iroshizuku 50ml glass bottles or alternatively as part of a set of 3 15ml bottles from The Writing Desk.
