If you use Pilot Iroshizuku ink, you may be interested to learn that it is now available in smaller bottles. The large 50 ml bottles now retail for $28.00. They are also available in 15 ml bottles for $14.00. Obviously the 50 ml bottles are better value, assuming you like a particular color or colors. On the other hand, if you want to try different colors an assortment of 15 ml bottles might be the way to go.

Check out JetPens for a great assortment of Japanese writing implements and stationery, at http://www.jetpens.com.

Oh, wow! That's awesome news. Though I'd obviously go for the larger bottles. Nice for sampling though, no doubt. That's my go-to ink. I still use Noodler's but not so much anymore.

Same here. I thought (and still think) Noodler's is a great ink, but when I tried the Iroshizuku ink I was hooked on it.

I use a Karas Kustoms copper set up nearly daily... It's wonderful.

I never heard of Karas Kustom, until now. I looked them up and have to say they really have a unique take on pen design. 8-) I've always been amazed at how a competent machinist can turn a nondescript bar of metal into a thing of beauty and functionality. Has your copper pen developed a patina, or do you keep it polished?

Those Karas Kustom definitely look interesting! I'll have to check them out in greater detail...

I'm currently rocking my Delta Titanio loaded with Pilot Iroshizuku Ku-Jaku ink.
