Several months ago, Pilot came out with 4 new Iroshizuku ink colors that were released exclusively in Japan and set to arrive in the US around March. Well, they showed up early! We just got them in at and I wanted to introduce you to these 4 new, rather unique colors.




I have already done ink reviews of the 17 previously existing Iroshizuku inks (much like I did with the Rohrer and Klingner inks here), and I will be posting those soon. Now I have 4 more to add to them!

Though at this point I’ve only done swabs and not actually inked them up, I expect the same characteristics I found with all of the other Iroshizuku inks: great flow, nice shading, and fast dry time. The inks aren’t cheap, but they are nice.

What do you think of the new colors?
