    Ink Pilot Iroshizuku is Pilot’s luxury line of fountain pen inks. The inks are consistent and well-behaved, garnering many fans.

    Ink Ferris Wheel Press Three Steamboats is from the Freshly Squeezed Collection. The ink looks like a minty green to me. It is a lovely colour with shading and no sheen. However, in writing, I find that it often lays down too light a line and the high contrast of the shading means I have […]
