Ink Review - Pilot Iroshizuku momiji

Hello, Chrissy here again and today I’m reviewing Pilot Iroshizuku momiji ink.

Momiji is a bright pinkish-red ink that translates to Autumn Leaves from Japanese. It’s a vibrant pinkish/magenta-red colour, not a fire-engine red.

It’s a well-behaved ink that flowed very well through my pens and felt nicely lubricated to write with. I didn’t notice any skips or hard starts when I put the uncapped pen down to do swab tests, dry times and water resistance. I also didn’t see any feathering on the papers I wrote on. It has some shading and can sometimes sheen gold.

It stained my fingers for at least three hand washes.

Available in attractive Pilot Iroshizuku 50ml glass bottles from The Writing Desk
