Kyonooto Hisoku

Kyonooto 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.

I’m a huge fan of both lines and wanted to try two new inks as soon as I learned about them. Unfortunately, the cost of shipment from company’s Rakuten shop is bonkers so I canceled my ordered. Happily, one of FPNers – MythicalUnicorn sent me a nice batch of ink samples to try. Hisoku was one of them. Thank you Daniel.

Hisoku can be described as a light steel blue with shading. It’s averagely saturated and with average flow. The color, though, appeals to me. I think it looks cool.
