Hello, I’m Chrissy and today I’m reviewing Pilot Iroshizuku yama-budo ink. This translates to Crimson Glory Vine and is a bright, deep magenta colour.
Although this colour may be a bit bright for some users, I think it’s fun to use some bright colours like this when writing letters or pages in journals.
I wrote mainly with a Lamy Al-Star pen with medium steel nib. Flow was very good and felt neither wet nor dry, while lubrication at the nib tip was nicely smooth across the page. I thought it was a well-behaved ink.
Yama-budo isn’t a saturated ink but it exhibited a little shading with finer nibs.
