Five-star ink!

Great service and favorite ink

I got this ink originally as a random sample and loved it so I ordered it in full size for further use. Came very quickly and works great!

Magenta Magic

I am brand new to the FP community but very happy to become a part of it. This ink is stunning and the photo is a great representation of the actual color on my Mac. It was the first ink I ever tried in my new TWSBI broad nib, and couldn't be happier. It flows perfectly fine and dries nicely on my 110 g paper with no bleed through. As I don't have optimum paper I'm sure that will make the experience even better. You won't be sorry with this choice! I hope my representation is a good one considering I'm so new.

Iroshizuku Yama-budo

A beautiful, rich cyclamen ink. A good alternative for those who often use brown or black inks as it gives good variety to the eyes without clashing. All characteristics of the ink are optimal.

Beautiful and Well Behaved

This is my 3rd Iroshizuku ink. Like the others, this ink is very wet and flows out of the pen with no difficulty. It dries very quickly and doesn't smear after just 2-3 seconds of drying time. It looks beautiful and the color is very saturated. When used on cheap paper you will see feathering, but this can be minimized with a fine nib. If you want to really rock and roll with big, thick fountain pen strokes you will need to get some nicer paper. I have used both Tomoe River paper and Clairefountaine paper with this ink without issue. I highly recommend this ink for a "daily driver" for people who want to spend more time writing and less time fiddling with their pens.

FAQs about Bottled Ink

Which pens can accept this ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Any of these fountain pens will work with bottled ink. Typically, as long as the pen can be filled with a converter, has a built-in filling mechanism like a piston, or can be eyedropper-filled, it can accept bottled ink.

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

My ink smells funny, is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Generally yes! Ink does not smell good- it usually has a chemical smell, along with other scents such as sulfur, rubber, chemicals or even paint. However, as long as you’re not seeing anything floating in the ink, it should be safe to use.

It’s cold and my ink froze; is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes, frozen ink will not hurt your pen (after it’s thawed of course!) The issue with ink freezing is primarily a concern because certain glass bottles could break as the water-based ink expands, and then you’d have a mess!
