It’s time to tackle some orange inks! Pilot Iroshizuku Yu-yake, aka Sunset, is a beautiful summery orange. You can find this ink at Pen Chalet. I have a full week of Pilot Iroshizuku ink reviews planned for later this month, so keep an eye out if you want to see more of them.
Yu-yake is a beautiful medium orange.
In large swabs the in looks more red.
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 some bleeding the flex nib.
Overall, I really like this ink. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to try it. I think it’s a great summer orange with great flow and some good shading. I’m definitely putting a full bottle on my wish list.
