Hello, Chrissy here again and today I’m reviewing Pilot Iroshizuku muraski-shikibu ink.
From Japanese this translates to the Japanese Beautyberry fruit and is an interesting bright lilac colour.
I didn’t have many similar inks to this one to compare it with, so it’s quite a different colour to other lilac or purple inks.
Muraski-shikibu 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. The ink was very well-behaved.
It dried in 16 seconds on the Clairefontaine Triomphe paper and didn’t smear after it was dry.
Available in attractive Pilot Iroshizuku 50ml glass bottles from The Writing Desk.
