Today’s ink is Pilot Iroshizuku Tsutsuji Azalea. This is the most requested ink review lately, and I finally bought a bottle. You can find this ink at Pen Chalet.
Tsutsuji is a bright, vibrant pink.
In large swabs the ink is a vibrant pink, and has lots of bright green sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 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 love the color of this ink. It’s bright and cheerful, and has a lovely wet flow. I’m glad I have a full bottle of this ink, since it’s one I think I will use often.
