Could it be? An actual ink review? ^_^ So I was finally able to take a moment and play with some ink. This time its Mitsukoshi Hikaru ink.
This is another Sailor ink, branded for a shop in Japan. I thought this was a little interesting though because the shop isn’t just a stationery store, it is a whole department store! This ink was sold with a matching pen which I did not use for the review because I did not have the heart to dump Bungubox Mother Pink, but here are a few photos of it in all its glory! It features the cute little kidney bean shape on the nib and the cap.
For this review I decided to ink up the other limited edition FP from japan I received relatively recently. The Pilot Sakura VP Decimo.
It has a gorgeous sheen! It comes out in regular writing as well which is always a plus in my book! The color did remind me of some other colors though, and I have been suspicious of Sailor rebottling before so I decided to do some comparison swabs.
Luckily the two Bungubox inks that I thought of when I was testing this out turned out to be significantly different. If you look at the blob for Hikaru and then the one for Lycoris Red, you’ll see why I was suspicious!
The ink and the pen that go with it are beautiful and I can’t recommend them enough! The color is fantastic and it has a good amount of sheen. What more can you ask for?
I leave you now with some cute concept art for Hippo Noto. If you haven’t joined the #hipposquad yet, it is not too late! Join the #hipposquad here!
Hoping to have a new update ready soon. I am so grateful for all of the continued support! ^_^.
