Moving right along in my five part Unicorn Ink Review Series is another beautiful blue called Sailor Ishida Bungu Hakodate Twilight.
- Maruzen Athena Eternal Blue
- Kingdom Note Thysanostoma Thysanura
- Sailor Ishida Bungu Hakodate Twilight
The packaging is similar to the Maruzen Athena Eternal Blue, with the bottle being the same. The notable difference is that this bottle actually has a label, whereas Eternal Blue did not.
Ink Journal Tomoe Entry:
The line going down on CF Paper:
Here is a color comparison chart of other blues I have inked, regular light and HDR. Even on CF paper the sheen is very apparent.
Since I am a huge fan of sheen this ink is a definite win for me, even with the inflated price and severely limited availability. Unlike the other inks I have reviewed, I do not see a clear “alternative” to Hakodate Twilight. The closest I can think of is Diamine Majestic Blue, but I find that ink too “sticky” for lack of a better word.
I probably wouldn’t use this ink for business purposes but it will definitely be a favorite in my creative writing book ^_^
This is part 4 of the Unicorn Ink Review Series, when I post 5 I will announce my next giveaway! Those are always fun.
