It’s time to tackle some Pilot Iroshizuku inks! This week we are going to take a look at 7 of them. Today let’s look at Ku-jaku, aka “Peacock”. The ink is available in beautiful 50ml bottles. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review!
Ku-jaku is a gorgeous medium teal, but let’s face it, I’m biased. I love teal.
In large swabs the ink looks more blue than it does in writing. There is some lovely red sheen.
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: Medium
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering in every nib size, and some bleeding in the flex nib.
Overall, I really like this ink. The color is beautiful, it has a nice wet flow, and it dries pretty quickly too.
