Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

Kyo-Iro Soft Snow of Ohara


I think this is the first Kyo-Iro ink I've reviewed, and I hope all of them are as cool as Soft Snow of Ohara. This is a pretty new line of inks being carried by Anderson Pens, and they provided the sample for this review. I've got a couple more of these inks in the pipeline, and they're a cool new brand to have around. These inks are all made for the TAG stationary store in Kyoto, Japan. I think I have samples of all of the inks in the Kyo-Iro and Kyo-no-oto line, so let me know which ones you'd like to see reviewed.

Written Review


Copy Paper Test

There's a little bit of bleed on this paper, but it's not too bad. Also a little bit of feathering from the Cleo Skribent pen, for some reason. The FC's broad stub puts down more ink, but it behaved a little better.

Color Comparisons!

I didn't have anything in a pen that was all that close to Soft Snow, so I've got a bunch of cards to compare.

I thought it was going to be pretty close to the Purple Rock from Robert Oster, but it's not really all that close. Oh well.
