The Pilot Namiki Iroshizuku Fountain Pen Ink Bottle. Introducing Iroshizuku bottled ink for Namiki and Pilot fountain pens. The name “Iroshizuku” is a combination of the Japanese words “Iro (Coloring),” expressing high standards and variation of colors, and “Shizuku (Droplet),” that embodies the very image of dripping water. Each Iroshizuku bottled ink name derives from the expressions of beautiful Japanese natural landscapes and plants, all of which contribute to the depth of each individual color.

Pilot’s Iroshizuku inks are among my favorites. Their selection of colors is lovely, and the inks themselves seem complex – often sheening, shading and/or displaying subtle nuances of color (especially in broader-nibbed pens) that adds a depth to my writing that I don’t often see with many of my other inks. The Fuyu-gaki follows this pattern – the color is a lovely, soft coral/pink/orange that works well on a variety of papers, and is fairly easy to clean from the pen. I would recommend this as a great spring/summer/fall color and an all-round great ink to work with.
