Today we are testing out Pen Saijiki Fujifusa. For those of you who haven’t heard of Pen Saijiki, it’s a brand of inks made by Sailor in Japan. I purchased my sample of ink from Vanness Pens.
Fujifusa is a pretty, light purple, perfect for spring time. It reminds me of lilacs.
In large swabs you can see the strong blue undertone.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 20 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was just a little bit of feathering, and a tiny bit of bleeding in the flex nib.
Overall, I thought the color would be too light, and it might be too light for some people. I think it did ok, it’s a great color for springtime. It’s well behaved, and dries pretty quickly.
