Pilot Iroshizuku Syo-ro - Dew on Pine Tree (50ml Bottled Ink) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 26.
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 and Lamy CP1 with medium steel nib.

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 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Syo-ro This ink was a big disappointment to me considering the price. I found it just plain dry and uncomfortable to write with. A good balanced teal color, but not quite what I was expecting given the description of "dew on pine needles." I guess poetry with words doesn't always translate to poetry in ink. Good shading properties, but the notable dryness of the ink itself was a deal breaker for me. Nice bottle, but it'll be an inkwell for something else (probably Noodler's) when it's empty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's OK Thought I'd really love this ink. Flow wise, it is great, even for a dry writing pen. Nice wet, but not too wet of a line. Like other Iroshizuku inks, it is head and shoulders above most inks - usually worth the extra cost I believe. But this color isn't my thing. It goes down a nice turquoise but dries a very different color ... Sort of a pale green. If you like that color, you will love this ink. Just not for me.
