Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Ink Purchase I am new to fountain pens and fountain pen ink. However, I love the color purple and was draw to this shade of purple. So my first bottle of ink cost twice as much as my pen! But it was worth it. It's great ink and makes me love my Pilot Metropolitan that much more. The packaging was clearly done with care. It took me some time to unpack it all. But once unwrapped, I found everything in tack and was eager to give it a try. It's a great shade of purple. How deep the shade of purple is depends on the type of paper that is being used. It flows from my pen with ease and I've yet to smear my writing. Nothing but good things to say about this ink!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pale and watery I own 4 or 5 Iroshizuku ink bottles, this one is sadly my least favourite. It looks beautiful in the bottle and when emptied into a glass of water for pen cleaning. However, on paper it comes out deceptively thinner and paler than expected, no matter which pen I used. Great quality of ink in terms of flow but disappointed with the weak watery violet look as I like deep, bold colours :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite Of all the ink I have, and I have A LOT! I do think this is my favorite. The color is purple, not pink, not blue...just purple. It is not a hugely saturated ink. But the shading is stunning, especially with a Lamy 1.1 mm nib. It's performance on any kind of paper is nothing less than terrific. Whenever I go back to read something I wrote in this ink, I have to stop and admire its beauty. Writing with it is smooth and it doesn't dry too quickly. Really, this is a most wonderful ink in every respect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pretty I like this ink. It might be too light for a lot of people but it is very legible and seems a little tiny bit darker to me than the swab on my computer. I enjoyed writing with it. It dried quickly, didn't have a lot of shading (but i was using a pilot preppy pen to test it). It didn't bleed at all not on Clairefontaine and not on a cheap Walmart notebook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Matches the Conway Stewart deep purple resin! At first this ink looked flat compared to some of the clear jewel tones in this line. But as the sun brightens into spring, I'm finding this soothing to the eye on a bright day. It performs beautifully off an IF and OM nib. Not much shading, but smooth flow, consistent color and the excellent performance I've come to expect from this line. Complements the gray shades in this line, as well as the bamboo green.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice shade of lavender This is a lovely, watery shade of lavender. As with all Pilot inks, it dries moderately quickly, and is well behaved in all of the pens that I have used it in. This is has limited shading, and is not water resistant. It does not bleed through or feather on any paper that I tried. The color is lovely, with just a slight pink undertone. It reminds me of early summer violets. While I do like the color, I am only giving 4 stars because I believe there are inks with similar color and characteristics for far less money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect true purple. I love all shades of purple, but this is special. It's right in the middle of the red/blue divide. Not too saturated, not too pastel...I'm putting it on my wishlist because I've got a birthday coming up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite!!!!! This is a beautiful purple, it is on the pinkish side of purple, so not a blue purple, but subtle shading and excellent properties make it a joy to use. I just love it.
