Pilot Iroshizuku Fuyu-gaki - Winter Persimmon (50ml Bottle) is rated 4.5556 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amended review - mea culpa Well OK I was remiss. The color of the ink on paper from a fine-ish nib is not like the swabs. However, after watching some ink review videos in which the ink in question was written in a fine nib and then in a medium nib, I was reminded of this ink and my previous review. So I took this 'Winter Persimmon' ink out of the pen I used first (a Noodler's flex) and put it into my soft-medium nibbed Namiki Falcon. Lo and behold! A very different ink in coloration. And much closer to the swab color on-line. If I wasn't eating crow I'd be even happier knowing that I CAN trust on-line swabs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not like the Swab color on-line I picked this ink based upon the color shown in the swab, which, on my computer monitor, looks like a dark red with a hint of orange. On my notebook's page it looks like an mid-range orange with a hint of yellow. If this continues (I've had other variances), ink selection based upon these swabs is going to be a crap-shoot. I even down-loaded that software recommended by the Goulets--Calibrize. So I've done the best I can do to get my monitor to jive with the images on this site. I give it 4 stars because I like the ink. Not 5 though because it isn't the ink I thought I was buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Joy of Orange The swab is not as accurate as it should be: Fuyu-gaki is not nearly as dark nor as red as it looks above. Instead, it's a vivid red-orange, emphasis on the orange: it's the colour of a third of the way up an unmixed tequila sunrise, brighter than Noodler's Cayenne, darker than Apache Sunset, and it is enchanting. I am more of a blue-or-purple kind of guy (I recently ordered a set of 15 blue-blacks from Goulet), but I love Fuyu-gaki and use it all the time. The bottle's beautiful, the ink's smooth and unshaded, the colour's joyous, and it's well worth the price. (I think all Iroshizukus are well worth the price: I've tried only one, Shin-ryoku, that I thought was merely okay, kind of boring, and even that was good enough if you want a nice green.) Use Fuyu-gaki in a fairly fat nib, though, nothing smaller than a medium: it's a transparent ink and won't have much impact in a fine nib.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's more orange than red I was eagerly looking forward to testing out this ink based on the swabs provided. But after testing it out, it is more orange in real life than red. It isn't a very saturated color either and no shading noted. Although it wasn't what i expected, I liked using it to underline printed material for editing and/or studying. The red ink that I settled on eventually that is simply outstanding is J. Herbin 1670 Rouge Hematite which I'll rate next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this ink! This is the first high-end ink I have ever used and I must say "I love this ink!" It is very well behaved on most papers - not so much on my son's graph pad from school. but what is. On Clairefontaine or Rhodia etc it is flawless and just a joy to write on. As for the colour, I personally love this colour - I would characterize it as a warm, slightly orange red. I realize that colour is highly subjective, so if you want a deep, blood red, or a rich, burgundy red, look elsewhere. But, if you want a warm, Roma tomato red then this might fit the bill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very bright This is a nice saturated orange/yellow. It is dark enough to show up fine on white paper. It really is the color of a Japanese persimmon!
