This is part one of a series of five reviews I call the “Unicorn Ink Review Series”. These are special inks that I have been after for a while, and while they aren’t “hard” to get by everyone’s standards, they aren’t available regularly in the USA and were a bit of a challenge for me to come by! So here we go 🙂
- Pilot Iroshizuku Edo-Murasaki
I will start with Edo-Murasaki. This is a Tokyo limited edition ink that I found pretty scarce, even on eBay.
Here is the line going down on CF paper. It has a very nice flow and did not disappoint!
I also did my standard Ink Journal entry:
It is however a beautiful dark plum purple color with the great shading I’ve come to expect from Iroshizuku ink. Is it special enough to justify the $70.00 price tag? As much as I wanted to say yes, I would not buy it again, I have other inks that would fit the bill for less. It doesn’t fill any particular exotic gap for me but I am glad to have had the experience and will definitely use the bottle I have now ^_^
Here is a comparison to other purples and Iro inks I have inked currently.
