Hello Chrissy here and today I’m reviewing Pilot Iroshizuku shin-ryoku ink.
From Japanese this translates to Forest Green and is a mid-range emerald, forest green colour that leans slightly blue.
It was well-behaved while writing with all of my pens, had good flow and smooth lubrication across the page. When the pen lays down a lot of ink on a smooth, coated paper you can sometimes see an attractive red sheen.
It did not suffer from any hard starts or non-starts when I put the uncapped pen down to do swab tests, dry times and water resistance.
Available in attractive Pilot Iroshizuku 50ml glass bottles from The Writing Desk
