Pilot Iroshizuku Fuyu-syogun. A gray ink with a pronounced blue tint, Fuyu-syogun bears the English name of Old Man Winter, which is entirely appropriate. A beautiful ink with great shading. Cool and evocative rather than insistent.
An everyday ink? Like winter, probably most enjoyable for a season, not an entire year.

Yes! I just love matching the inks to the season. I can’t always get it to work out because the inks often don’t run out within the season, but over time I’m getting better with guessing how much ink to load in a c/c pen so I can use it up while it’s ‘in season’ and not have to flush any. Work in progress!
I do like it on white paper. We’ve had an early season snow storm so I’m just about to fill it into a pen myself. It helps me to get through winter by thinking of all the nice things that winter brings, and using this ink is one of them. 🙂
yay, a 1′ review! This looks like an ink to use with snow-white paper for best effect! Or would it be TOO cold?
