I recently got a friend to purchase a bottle of Pilot Iroshizuku Asa Gao. I got it for 1575 yen. It is my very first bottle of ink. I am very taken by the beautiful bottle that all Iroshizuku inks come in. I was so excited that I flushed a half used ink cartridge just so I could start using the new ink!
The ink has a good flow. It is a solid coporate-like blue shade. The dry time is good for a lefty. There is slight shading from the picture on the right but it should be more obvious with a boarder nib.
There was very little smudging even with just 5s of dry time. By 15s it was completely dry.
This is my first ink review, do leave a comment if I missed out on anything that you would like to find out.
