Pilot Iroshizuku Kiri Same + Giveaway

My thanks to Sunny of Straits Pen for a sample of the ink. My thanks to Fook Hing for the bottle of mini Pilot Iroshizuku bottle for the giveaway. Details for the giveaway is at the end of the review. Now with graditude out of the way onwards to the review.

This is one of 2 grey inks in the Pilot Iroshizuku series. The other grey ink being Fuyu Syogun. I have purchased Pilot Iroshizuku Fuyu Syogun very early in my foray into the world of fountain pens. My verdict of it was far from favourable. My main complaint was the colour was too light. Fuyu Syogun is a grey with cooler undertones while Kiri Same has warm undertones. That's about the main difference between the two grey inks.

Kiri Same is too light for my taste and I don't recommended for everyday use. I prefer my greys darker like J. Herbin Stormy Grey. Regardless, Kiri Same is well bahaved and easy to wash out from the pen. It shades from a light warm grey to a darker grey.
