The Meiji no Iro inks are water-based dye inks, but offer a more substantial feel than most water-based dye inks you’ll find on the market. So, you can embrace the thicker ink and the fantastic consistency it offers while also loving the fact that the inks are safe for use with all your fountain pens, dip pens, brushes, etc. Expect to enjoy a smooth writing experience with your pens and dip pens, and when used with a brush, you may be surprised to discover how opaque these inks go down.

What’s the Kuretake Ebicha Ink Bottle Like?

The Kuretake Ebicha ink some in a square 20ml glass bottle with labeling reflecting the general color of the ink inside the bottle. The cap is faceted. The ink is packaged in a cardboard box with a traditional Meiji-era pattern matching the label on the ink bottle.
