Pilot Iroshizuku Shin-Ryoku Ink Review

Pilot Iroshizuku Shin-Ryoku ink review

Pilot Iroshikuku Shin-Ryoku (Forest Green) is a lovely dark pine green. It dries quickly, flows well, and has some interesting though subtle shading.

This sample was sent to me by Pure Pens to launch their new ink sample service. This is a fantastic way of trying out some of the more expensive inks and is something we’ve been missing here in the UK. I’m really very glad this is available and I hope they’re able to make it a success. (Pure Pens did not ask me to say that!)

Here I am doodling the Inkling.

  1. Nice review.

    I stumbled across the new service at Pure Pens and immediately ordered 4 samples of Iroshizuku inks. Nice way to try some inks that are too expensive to try a bottle at a time.

    Like you I do hope they can make it a viable service.

  2. Hello,
    Great review. May I ask what you are using to write with when you wrote “Pilot Iroshizuku Shin-Ryoku” in the bigsize?

    Thank you,
