INK REVIEW: Pilot Iroshizuku - Momiji


Is it pink? It is red? It's - rose. Momiji from Pilot Iroshizuku is pretty, pretty, pretty, and BRIGHT! In yo face! 

It almost glows blue, yes?  

Momiji is also known as Autumn Leaves - not sure why.

But pink ink? I don't know. I just don't know! Definitely girly. But what possible use could one have for this? Love letters? You know what I mean? Journaling, perhaps. But I'm not 12 and I don't dot my letters with hearts. (Usually.)

Momiji is $28 all over the place. And while that's not a lot of money, it is on the high side for ink. And there are so many inks out there. So many I need to have. I'm going to pass on this one. For now. Unless I find can't.

But if I'm ever in the market for pink/red/rose - this is going to be my color.

Even if it does schmear all over the place in the water test (even the droplet is a fail). Even if it was a bit of a pain to clean the pen after using. Even if it doesn't have much shading. It's that POW of color that has me.

Seriously, though. It wrote great, just like the other Iroshizuku inks. And if this color is your thing, I say go for it. I'm saving my pennies for something else. Probably, anyway. I don't know!  What do you think? Love it? Hate it?

Here's what others are saying...
