Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Mountain Forest the Morning After a Storm It is interesting that other reviews seem puzzled that this is a green ink, or are puzzled by the name: ?Dew on Pine Tree.? To me, it looks exactly like the blue spruce forests in the Uinta mountains near my home in Utah on a morning after a night of heavy rain in September. The color is exactly what I was hoping for. If you want a green ink, or a blue ink, then this ink is not for you. If you want an ink that looks like pine trees in the morning after a night of rain, then this is the ink for you. This is the first Iroshizuku ink I have tried, and I am impressed. It is superior in every way, and it shades well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perhaps my favorite Iroshizuku ink This ink is a stunning blue spruce-y color, as another reviewer mentioned. An even mix of blue and green, the name is very evocative of the color. I do find that it is a bit darker for me than the sample swatch here would indicate, but there are a whole variety of factors that could influence that. Even the folks to whom I write letters have commented on the color of this ink. It's Iroshizuku, so it writes beautifully, flows smoothly, can be just a bit of a pain to clean out of a converter, and has perhaps the most beautiful ink bottle on the market today. This one is my go-to ink for almost everything I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually a fitting name My apology but I have to disagree with the previous reviewer. This is very close to the color I remember of dewy pine needles from my childhood in the Far East. The famous Chinese Tang poet Wang Wei had a passage like "The rays of sun frost the pine trees". I ordered both samples of Syo-ro and Tsuki-yo. They are similar in terms of the 'lighting' effect. Syo-ro is a blue-green, while Tsuki-yo is a blue-green-black. The lighting effect is best described as a yellow/gold hue gradually rises to the top of the base color. I enjoy both colors tremendously.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As its name implies... As its name implies, the color of this ink is of great complexity. Depending on the amount of ink on the page, there is a variation from light, almost turquoise blues to blueish greens, the kind of indescribable luminous blue-greens that you may find on dew-laden pine or spruce branches. An extremely pleasing ink for those who can give themselves up to the subtle variations we may encounter in nature's realm. On the technical side, this ink flows rather wet, but with little spread or feathering, moderate dry time and nuanced shading that is not only light-to dark, but rather cool blue to blue-green, and therefore quite remarkable! Excellent lubrication. Test pens were a Pilot Stargazer <M> and Lamy CP1 with medium steel nib.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly named ink! Really happy with syo-ro! It truly does look like blue spruce on a foggy Seattle morning and in addition to the color itself it has a bunch of other great qualities. Write beautifully, dries quickly, a few false starts here and there that I'll take for the exchange of an ink I don't have to worry about smearing (lefty here). Really nice shading that goes from almost a deep forest green to the lighter spruce-y color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful This is a very fun ink. I love the color! When you first put it down on the paper, it looks more blue than I expected (I was worried it was the same as the tsuki-yo, which I already use). But as it dried, it turned to a beautiful bluish green. Depending on how much ink you lay down, this is nice variation between green and blue, which makes it very fun to look at on a page. And of course, the ink performs extremely well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from different than Ku-jaku I already have Ku-Jaku, but I was curious about Syo-Ro. When I looked at pictures of this ink online on several websites, it looked the same ink color as Ku-Jaku. I assumed that an ink company wouldn't make two inks the same, so I bought a sample. I'm so glad I did. I behaves as nicely as Ku-Jaku, but it has more green to it and it's a lovely color. It the attached picture, I compare it to other blue green inks. I used a q-tip for the stripe and a glass pen to write on hp 32 lb paper. In the picture, it looks the same color as Noodler's Dostoyevsky, but Syo-Ro has more green to it and Dostoyevsky has more grey. Dostoyevsky is less saturated, so it appears more subdued on paper. I like the Dostoyevsky color better, but I'm not sure I'd trust myself with that ink since its almost permanent. On the other hand, Syo-Ro dryes faster and isn't permanent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting and Beautiful What can I say about Iroshizuku inks that hasn't already been said (and certainly better than I can). It's wonderful, well behaved, easy to clean, fantastic color, fantastic bottle, and great shading as well. I bought this color to have something other than blue that is fairly professional. And I love it. It's easy to read, but much more interesting then plain old blue. It really is the color of wet pine needles. Reminds me a a blue spruce.
