    Delight in the rich and lavish colors of each of these carefully curated limited edition Iroshizuku ink collection sets, inspired by the beauty of nature. Each vibrant ink color embodies the beauty of Japanese natural landscapes and plants.

    This Yoi limited edition set includes four 30ml glass bottles of Pilot Iroshizuku fountain pen ink. The colors chosen for the Yoi set were inspired by sunset turning to night, the warm sky, that is not dark yet. 

    The ink bottles are packaged together in an elegant white gift box.

    The four included ink colors are:

    • Syo-ro (dew on pine tree): The color of pine is the most representative of Japan’s evergreens and has long been celebrated as symbolizing eternal permanence. This shade of green conjures up a dew drop reflecting the pine needles.
    • Sui-gyoku (emerald): Inspired by the deep green shine in a highly precious, esteemed emerald gemstone.
    • Yama-budo (crimson glory vine): This shade of red is a nod to the bright and ripe fruit of the wild, yet subdued, crimson glory vine.
    • Take-sumi (bamboo charcoal): Take-sumi has been used in Japanese homes since ancient times as a water purifier, to control humidity levels and for its healing properties. The black emulates the deep, rich black of take-sumi, so familiar to the Japanese.

    FAQS

    Which pens can accept this ink?

    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?

    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.

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

    Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens?

    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?

    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 is safe to use. 

    It’s cold and my ink froze, is it safe to use?

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

    What is your return policy?

    We do not accept returns for ink that has been used. Otherwise, we accept returns on unused ink products for up to 60 days from purchase. You can read all our Return Policies here.
