Kingdom Note has basically never let me down, well except for the prawn but everyone gets a free pass right? My confidence in blindly ordering bottles of ink from Japan has not yet been shaken. So when I saw this beautiful butterfly ink back in stock after stalking it for over a month, I jumped at the chance!
It comes in a Sailor box that has a sticker over the regular label.
I couldn’t see any sheen during normal writing, despite the pen being at least moderately wet. The sheen comes out in the blob though! It has a nice saturation, but I found the shading to be lacking which I found off since KN inks usually shade out of control. I do not mind that too much though, the color is spectacular I do not think I have another purple quite like this in my collection. I will go ahead and file this under LOVE with most of the other KN inks ^_^.
