Packages from Japan always make me smile ^_^. So when these Voice inks arrived I was overjoyed!
They are Sailor inks for a Japanese stationery store. Of course I had to start with the pinky looking one!
For this review I decided to ink up my Pilot Falcon SM. It needed ink and I had a feeling that this one would sheen.
Line going down on 68GSM tomoe paper in Hippo Noto:
This ink is just glorious! That green/gold sheen is amazing. It comes out in generous amounts even during normal writing. It also has a nice shading and a great flow. This might even call for a second (and third) bottle! This ink reminded me a lot of Pilot Iroshizuku Yama-Budo.
Both are wine colored sheen monsters, but this one hints more toward a pink/red, and the Iroshizuku seems to go more toward a purple. Definitely worth having both in a collection though! If you love well-behaved ink with sheen….run! don’t walk to get this one.
I leave you now with this awesome shot of the turquoise Hippo Noto open and ready for ink! If you haven’t already, visit our Kickstarter Join the #hipposquad! We are nearly to the Stretch Goal for an ivory tomoe paper option! Thank you to this amazing community for helping us get to this point ^_^
