Today’s ink is Pilot Iroshizuku Fuyu-gaki. I’ve heard about this ink a million times, but I had never tried it myself, and finally decided it was time to give it a try. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Fuyu-gaki is a bright red-orange.
In large swabs there is just a little bit of shading.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 15 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering in every nib size, and some bleeding in the flex and broad nibs.
Overall, I really like this ink for fall. It’s a lovely bright orange, and has a nice wet flow.
