Van Dieman’s Pink Fairy Orchid on Muji Planting Tree

Ink

Pink Fairy Orchid is part of the Tassie Seasons collection. It represents spring.

Pink Fairy Orchid is a flower that can be found in the southern part of Australia as well as Tasmania. Like the flower that inspired the name, the ink is a pink which ranges from light to bright due to shading. Due to the light shading, I find it takes more effort to read. This ink has an average flow.

On Muji paper,

  • Shading: Yes
  • Sheen: Nil
  • Feathering: Some
  • Bleedthrough: Nil

Cult Pens Michael on Muji Planting Tree

Ink

Michael is a dark blue ink from the Deep Dark Inks series exclusive to Cult Pens. In smaller 30ml and 12ml bottles, it is called Little Micky. It was one of the three inks launched in May 2021 that were named after Cult Pens’ three longest-serving staff. You can read more about Michael (the human being) on Cult Pens blog.

The colour is described as a deep dark ocean blue on Cult Pens website. I find the ink leans a bit purple, probably due to the sheen. On Muji paper, there is no sheen and the ink looks dark blue. This ink has a wet flow.

On Muji Planting Tree paper,

  • Shading: Nil
  • Sheen: Nil
  • Feathering: A Lot
  • Bleedthrough: Some

This ink left a very faint line of colour residue in the pen barrel, easily removed using a pen flush.

Dominant Industry Citrus Yellow on Midori MD

Ink

Citrus Yellow is a yellow ink with orange undertones. It’s that shade of yellow that makes me think of egg yolks. The ink has an average flow.

The ink is yellow when wet and the orange starts to appear as it dries, which makes it hard at times to see what I am writing. I find the words fairly readable when dried although it does still take a bit more effort and focus. I also found it easier to read in certain lighting conditions and harder in others.

On the bright side, this ink is easy to clean out of the pen.

  • Shading: Little
  • Sheen: Nil
  • Feathering: Some

Muji Pilot Planting Tree

Pilot Iroshizuku Kon-Peki on Muji Planting Tree

Ink

Pilot Iroshizuku is Pilot’s luxury line of fountain pen inks. The inks are consistent and well-behaved, garnering many fans. For a while, I hold off buying a bottle because they are more expensive compared to other ink brands. But of course, “expensive” is a relative term, and there are also ink brands that are much more expensive than the Iroshizuku line.

I decided to start with the Pilot Iroshizuku Kon-Peki. A long time ago, Myke Hurley, co-host of The Pen Addict podcast, said that this was the only ink he used in fountain pens. Although he had expanded his ink collection since then, I believed that he still used the Kon-Peki ink in his pens.

The Kon-Peki (also known as Deep Azure Blue) is a beautiful medium blue that some would describe as a cerulean blue. It has a wet flow and lovely shading.

I really enjoyed writing with this ink. There is a quiet feeling of joy with each stroke and somehow my handwriting looked better. It felt as if I could go on writing forever. I look forward to trying the rest of the ink in Iroshizuku line.

  • Shading: Yes
  • Sheen: Nil

Van Dieman’s Apple Cider on Muji Planting Tree

Ink

Apple Cider is part of the Harvest line which takes inspiration from the produce of Tasmania. It has an average flow.

The ink colour ranges from a light yellow to a honey yellow. The lighter parts reminds me of apple cider and the darker parts reminds me of apple cider vinegar. Sometimes it is hard to see what I am writing because the ink lays down light and darkens as it dries. Once dried, I find it fairly readable.

On Muji paper:

  • Shading: Yes
  • Sheen: Nil
  • Feathering: Nil
  • Bleedthrough: Nil
