The Iroshizuku Bottle--Functional Elegance
Each artfully designed Iroshizuku ink bottle is individually made from hand-blown glass. Due to the nature of the glass-blowing process, each bottle contains subtle variations in the shape of the interior ink reservoir, making each bottle into a work of art, with no two bottles exactly the same.
The expertly designed Iroshizuku bottle also features an angled notched bottom which allows fountain pens to drink up every drop of ink. An elegant paper label with the Japanese name of the ink color, a knotted silver cord, and a faceted black cap embellish the glass bottle. Each bottle contains 50 ml of premium fountain pen ink for lasting enjoyment of your favorite fountain pens.
UPDATE: The neighbor kid who watched our cat while we were away stole it. Evidently the bottle was irresistibly tantalizing to the pre-teen, North American male. I slyly asked his mother whether she'd noticed it, hoping that she would catch my drift and investigate without forcing me to openly accuse her son of theft. But she didn't. So, rather than endure that moment of awkwardness, I've ordered a second bottle... which happens to be irresistibly tantalizing to this forty-something, North American male. The boy won't be watching the cat again. And he better stay off my lawn.
Before purchasing this bottle, I tried the 5 ml sample and love the color so much. Now after I got this large bottle, I even use it for my calculus homework :)
The ink is very pretty, and definitely a bright cherry blossom color.
