Pilot Iroshizuku Ku-jaku - Peacock (50ml) is rated 4.7692 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from All-around well-behaved ink Flows well, does not bleed or feather too easily even on copy paper, cleans out easily from pens, and the color is just gorgeous. What more can I ask for? An interesting thing about the color of this ink- I found that how green or how blue this blue-green ink appears depends partly on the wetness of the nib you are using. With wet nibs that lay down lots of ink, this ink will seem greener, whereas with dry nibs this ink will seem bluer. I use this ink in 2 different pens (both with European medium nibs): the Waterman Harmonie and the TWSBI Mini. With my Harmonie, which has a very wet nib, this ink appears significantly greener than when it's used in my TWSBI Mini (moderate wetness, right in the medium range of the dry-wet spectrum).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Blue-Green Yet! I've been using this in an Ahab Flex, and this ink has stunning color and shading in this nib. I haven't tried it in any other nibs yet, I've been so enamored of the shading and red sheen in the flexible nib that I haven't wanted to load it in any other pen. It's a well-behaved ink. Haven't noticed the nib creep mentioned in another review. It does bleed-through a bit more than less-saturated inks, but it doesn't seem to feather as much. Drying time seems pretty good. No bleed-through on Red & Black journals and notebooks, or Clairfontaine notebooks, or Quo Vadis Habana. A little bit of feathering on the Red & Black journal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dazzling and beautiful As a person new to the fountain pen world, I have not been exposed to as many inks as people with more experience. However, when I saw a swab if this ink, I knew I had to have it. After actually using it, I definitely do not regret my purchase. While the Iroshizuku line of inks are definitely more expensive than many others which might deter many customers, it should be kept in mind that you really do get what you pay for with this ink. The ink behaves well in all my pens (TWSBI 580, Lamy Safari, Lamy 2000) as well as on a variety of papers from the cheapest to the most expensive that I have tested. Overall, I'm very happy with the colour and ink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Ink Ku-Jaku has become my go-to ink in my MB medium. It's a compelling color that works fine in business environments as a "blue" with personality. It's also amazing for personal memoirs, journaling, and other notes. The ink flows beautifully and despite being very smooth, gives a good, tactile feedback through the nib. Currently, I'm using the ink on Leuchtturm1917 notebooks and love the combination. The ink defines shading. It's such a rich combination of colors that depending upon lighting, can take on subtle greens, aquas, and deeper blues. It's definitely a favorite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my all time favorite inks In my humble opinion, this ink is very unique. It's not a deep, rich or saturated blue, nor is it a deep, rich or saturated green. It lends itself more to the blue spectrum, but it's shading is very, very nice in any size nib pen. One of the coolest features of Iroshizuku inks is that they don't dry out on the nib. So you can actually put your pen down and it will start writing immediately even after an extended period of sitting un-capped. I highly recommend this brand of ink to every fountain pen user. It's expensive, but well-worth it...at least I think so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely, well-behaved ink I love blue inks, especially blue-greens. I'd heard good things about this color, and I loved it in all the pictures that I saw, but I was cautious before buying it. Would I like it as well as I thought I would? Normal people might buy a sample, but I decided to wade right in! I'm not sorry that I did so. This is now one of my two favorite colors of ink, and I will definitely always have at least one pen inked with Ku-jaku. It's exactly the color that I expected it to be, like the beautiful plumage for which it is named. It shades nicely in my fine pens, and gives a nice even line from the medium nibs. The ink is well-behaved. If you're on the bubble, don't hesitate. You will like this ink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pigeon blue or ku ku jaku It was a hard choice: Ku-jaku or Pigeon Blue (DeA) but I went with the Peacock. I tried both samples in my Falcon, Edison and Konrad and they were wet and lovely except my Konrad Marianas did not like my Pigeon Blue, so the Peacock won, this time. Ku- Jaku has more shading, is more saturated, and has more blue (less green) than Pigeon Blue. It is better for writing... but the Pigeon was softer and very nice for drawing.
