Aonibi – Kyonooto

To be honest I don’t know much about the company. Some time ago Algester posted topic about Tag Kyoto branch inks. The bottles and colors presented on their site looked nice so I’ve decided to try some of these inks. I’ve managed to buy two on Rakuten and I’ll review them. The inks are made by or for Takeda Jimuki company and are available in two lines: Kyo No Oto and Kyo-Iro. Kyo no Oto inks are said to be traditional japanese colors that has been used since heian era (roughly 1000 years ago),and expressing a tinges that have been nurtured in long history and profound culture for long time.

Kyonooto inks are:

  1. Aonibi
  2. Imayouiro
  3. Kokeiro
  4. Nurebairo
  5. Yamabukiiro

Kyo-iro inks are:

  1. Cherry Blossom of Keage
  2. Flaming Red of Fushimi
  3. Moonlight of Higashiyama
  4. Soft Snow of Ohara
  5. Stone Road of Gion

Aonibi comes in nice, practical bottle

I must confess I’m a fan of this color. In my opinion it rocks. It’s not strongly saturated but it offers vintage vibe that I enjoy a lot. Also the flow in most pens is great. The ink felt dry in my St Dupont Fidelio but , for example, in Kaweco or FPR Guru the flow was excellent. In very wet pens it may cause some bleedthrough on bad quality paper.
