GIVE AWAY: Pilot Iroshizuku Shin-Ryoku

It’s true!  I’m giving away a mostly unused bottle of Pilot Iroshizuku Shin-ryoku.

Bottom Line:  Leave a comment below to be entered to win. Do it before next Thursday, February 20. And, omg, please please leave a way for me to contact you – you know, in case you win.

Details: About 100 years ago (more like May of last year), when I was on my honeymoon, I was shocked to see the Paradise Pens in Las Vegas was closing. They had a deal on inks and I bought a few – mostly on speculation – including this one.

Got it home, inked a pen (I never ever dip right into the bottle, no contamination here) and realized that, omg, I don’t like this ink. I stuffed it into my ink cabinet and haven’t bothered with it since then.

In fact, how funny is it that my very first ink giveaway (implies there are more to come, hm?) also happens to be the very first ink I ever reviewed?  (That review was from a sample.)

I don’t have the box or the fancy hang tag, but the bottle and its contents are in good shape. There are maybe 3 ml missing from the bottle, but probably not even that much.

So! If you’d like to enter to win, just leave a comment below before next Thursday (the 20th) and I’ll announce a winner (chosen randomly, of course).  Hopefully, I’ll get my act together enough to ship the ink pretty quickly after that.

Fun, right?

No enter to win! Do it!
