Pilot Iroshizuku Yu-yake

Pilot Iroshizuku Yu-yake is also known as sunset orange. It’s a luxury fountain pen ink in the company’s Iroshizuku ink collection.

Iroshizuku Yu-yake is a dark orange, with hints of brown. It’s darker than you’d expect, with a lot of shading, the combination of which makes the “sunset” name make a lot of sense. This ink might also be called “burnt orange.”

Iroshizuku Yu-yake has a lot of variability to it. At some points it seems like it might be a true dark orange but at others the brown tones really come out. The brown can make the ink seem a bit dull and somewhat vegetal, but people might enjoy the autumnal tones as well.

The ink is a consistent writer and easy to clean. It’s not the most practical everyday ink because of the color, but it works very well and would work well as a daily it if you are OK with the color.
