Pilot Iroshizuku Murasaki Shikibu Ink Review8 September 2015
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.

It Is also the name of the author of the Tale of Genji. The world’s first psychological novel written around 960 ad. If my memory serves me well.
