Pilot Iroshizuku Murasaki Shikibu ink review

Murasaki Shikibu means Japanese Beautyberry. This is a very pretty name for a very pretty ink. It’s the first purple ink I’ve found that I really enjoy writing with. It flows well and dries quickly.

Here I am doodling the Inkling.

This sample was sent to me by Pure Pens, who offer a range of top quality ink samples for sale. If you live in the UK (or nearby) it’s worth giving it a look.
