6 flacons de Hiroshizuku

J'ai achet� 6 flacons d'encre Iroshizuku : Chiku-rin, Yama-guri, Take-sumi, Yu-yake, Yama-budo, Sui-gyoku ! C'est les premi�res encres de cette marque que je poss�de. L'emballage carton en couleur argent est sobre , en m�me temps tr�ss (pourquoi je ne peux pas corrig� cette faute de frappe?) classe! Le Chiku-rin est un vert clair, un vert de printemps et d'�t�! Il n'est pas trop clair, il est parfaitement visible sur le papier! En anglais , c'est du Bamboo forest. Je pense utiliser ces teintes avec mes Capless de Pilot. Plus tard j'en recommanderai d'autres. Dommage que les frais de douanes soient importants, pratiquement le prix de un flacon et demie d'encre : pour les six flacons j'ai d� payer 35€ de frais de douanes! Ouais ..., �a calme!

Nice shading green ink, bit light for my taste

I quite like this ink and I'm glad I bought a bottle. The shading looks beautiful in good lighting, but it's a little difficult to see in low light, such as night with a book light. The shading is wonderful, and it's a very lighthearted fun shade. I would suggest using it in a wet writing broad nib pen to get it writing a bit darker, and you'll be good to go.

Very satisfactory

This is a cheerful spring green with a yellowish cast, a very warm color. It has the usual well behaved characteristics of any Iroshizuku ink. I use it with a stub nib and find that despite its light color it is easy to read on the page. Recommended to anyone looking for a spring green.

Matches sailor pen

I have an issue with wanting ink to match pen color.

Making the Write Choice

Great colour and flows easily without being too wet. Dries quickly too. Pretty bottle and love the little well at the bottom - nice little feature.

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.

You can learn more in our blog: How to Write with Shimmering Ink.

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!

What is your return policy for bottled ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B
