One word "amazing". Maybe it is the fact I never wrote with a lighter ink before. But I really like writing with it. This ink has amazing shading from dark yellow to bright burnt orange.
Their was some nibcreep with this ink in the Lamy Safari (fine). Nothing though to be worried about. The pen always starts right away. The ink is smooth and gives no problems. On Moleskine paper the drying time was quick about 3-5 seconds. On Rhodia it took a little bit longer.
Sorry for the yama-guri-ink-dot on the photo below. I had a little accident while making photo's.
For those of you that can't read my handwriting, here's the translation:
I just filled my Lamy Safari Orange (fine) with Iroshizuku yu-yake. A very nice name for this great ink.
It is a nice plain orange color. Not to red and not to yellow. It is just good for an orange ink.
This is my second Iroshizuku ink I review. The yu-yake also does not bleed through this Moleskine paper. There's some nice shading in this ink.
On this Moleskine paper the ink takes about 3-5 seconds to dry. On Rhodia it takes a little bit longer.
The ink costs about $ 0,45/ml.
I almost must say it passes the tests with a glance. No bleedthrough in any of my five different Moleskines with this Lamy Safari (fine). But it is tricky to see due to the lightness of the ink. I think I saw some dots coming through in my plain Moleskine. In all other four no bleedthrough. Also no feathering. Thumbs up!
