Pilot's Iroshizuku Take-Sumi (bamboo charcoal) black fountain pen ink is a rich dark opaque black with character and interesting shading. One of several black inks in the Iroshizuku range, Iroshizuku ink is part of a relatively new category of 'luxury inks' (Take-Sumi in particular might be likened to Pelikan's Edelstein Onyx ink).
Inspired by the Japanese natural world, from a culture that has revered the art of writing for more than a thousand years. The name ‘iroshizuku’ is a combination of the words ‘iro’ (colouring) and ‘shizuku’ (droplet) and is inspired by the Japanese natural world to express its many beautiful variations of colour. Presented in a lovely silver gift box, this luxury ink comes in a 50ml oval glass bottle and is the perfect companion to any fountain pen.
