Pilot Iroshizuku Yama-Guri and a Japanese Brush Pen


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A thoughtful gift from my friend who recently came home from a trip to Japan. Sigh, Japan. Home of the Iroshizuku inks. Someday I’ll get to see you too, and I shall eat takoyaki in your streets with utter abandon. Haha.

Anyway, the ink! I don’t know all of the English equivalents of the ink colors so I thought that it was black. A closer look at the ink showed that it’s brown, though. Apparently, Yama-Guri means “Wild Chesnut”. It’s a beautiful addition to my brown inks, and I’ll write a review as soon as I get decent photos of the writing samples.

The brush pen is also fun to use. I don’t know why I find brush pen calligraphy a bit easier to manage than dip pens. The pen itself is beautiful, though. The texture and design was meant to look hand-painted. I love it.
