Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smiles in a bottle I'm a fan of Pilot inks and a put a lot of trust in them that they'll work well and not cause issues in any of my pens. So far, Yu-yake has been as reliable as the other Pilot inks I've tried. It's the color that I'm most impressed with. Though I'm a fan of dark inks, I decided to give this ink a try and use it in some flex pens for some bright lettering. And it's beautiful; goes from a soft, pretty orange at the top of a stroke to an almost burnt orange at the bottom. I smile every time I look at something written with it. Someone could probably send me a rejection letting penned in this ink color and I'd still smile -- it's that pleasing of a bright ink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looking for oranges....found a ripe one I've been looking around at orange inks for a while. I'm a University of Texas alumni and orange is absolutely my favorite color. I've got just about most "relevant" orange inks like Noodlers Apache Sunset and Private Reserve Orange Crush. I think Yu-Yake has a hair more advantage over Apache Sunset. Yeah, it's way more expensive, but it flows a bit easier. I've got in my Omas Ogiva stub and it's pleasure on paper. Don't be fooled... just like Apache Sunset, it goes on lighter and drys darker. It shades well, but has no sheen. Again, it's an Iroshizuku ink, so it always has a consistent behavior . It's not really "Texas Burnt Orange"...then again I haven't found and ink that's exactly that color. This comes close and if I pen letters to other people I graduated with, this will be my ink of choice. Most people are happy with A. Sunset....but I'm gonna stick with this one for a while. If you don't love orange or just need an orange ink, I'm not sure I would recommend plopping down a ton of money for this bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slightly Muted Orange Yu-yake is a slightly muted orange, just a little on the yellow side of orange. When I first tried the sample that I ordered from Goulet Pen Company, I thought it was too washed out for me. I preferred more saturated oranges, such as Herbin Orange indien or Diamine Orange. I had also purchased a sample of Iroshizuku Fuyu-gaki, which is another more saturated orange. However, after using Yu-yake for a couple of days I realized that I prefer the subtle look of Yu-yake, especially in my Pelikan M200, which is a rather wet writer (and deliberately so). Most importantly, I'm a big fan of brown inks -- currently Iroshizuku Tsukushi and Herbin Caf‚ des Œles. I love the way Yu-yake looks when used on the same page as brown inks. So I bought a bottle of Yu-yake from Goulet Pen and I'm delighted with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I adore the Iroshizuku inks! They are expensive, but to me they are worth the money. Yu-yake is a beautiful, shaded orange. It is more muted than Sailor Jentle Apricot and significantly lighter than Noodler's Habanero or Apache Sunset. I have written many pages with this ink and the overall impression it gives is fun, yet relaxed. It is pretty on ivory paper. If you are new to Iroshizuku inks, this or Syo-ro would be great ones the start with!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Orange This is orange. In true I wanted to give it 5 stars, but chose not to because of the price. Yes, it is a GREAT ink, yes it is a good, warm orange; but it's too expensive for "orange" ink. There are plenty of other brand's that make an Orange similar to this, and their quality is just as good. PRICE: The "Iroshizuku" line is superior (flow, consistency, color saturation,...). I HATE the price, but that's something Pilot needs to sort out (Goulet's price is great). If Pilot made iroshizuku more affordable it would be the only brand of ink I use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pilot Iroshizuku Yu-yake (Sunset) It is so good and marvelous that my sample is already done. It is such a suple orange. Its not tangy or agresive, is instead pasive and flawless. It looks great on white and cream colored paper. I am not a big fan of oranges, but this one has to be my favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liquid sun in a bottle Absolutely gorgeous ink. It'd be redundant to talk about all the qualities of the Iroshizuku line, all colors have impeccable flow, shading, saturation, etc etc. This orange is brilliant without being offensive to the eyes, arguably one of the best out there. I Inked a Lamy Safari Vista with it, and the effect of the light reflecting off the orange ink inside the pen is a nice little touch.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nothing special The best thing I can say about this ink is that it is almost the exact same shade as the Parker Big Red and makes a perfect match for it. However, the color is not unique enough to justify the price. I find that the orange category is a crowded field of other very great inks. Yu-yake to me is almost identical to Private Reserve Orange Crush, which is a fraction of the price but performs the same, somewhat watery.
