Iroshizuku, meaning drop (shizuku) of color (iro) in Japanese, is the name given to this unique line of inks from Pilot, celebrating Japan's magnificent natural landscape. These sublime inks come in hand blown glass bottles featuring a unique concave interioir shape that allows every last drop of ink to be used!
In 1915, Ryōsuke Namiki, a mechanical engineer and professor at the University of Marine Science and Technology in Tokyo, quit his job and, together with his colleague Masao Wada, founded a small factory to manufacture gold nibs for fountain pens, which they named Namiki Manufacturing Company. Three years later, Pilot was born. With its wide range of writing instruments, Pilot has quickly become one of the best and most popular pen companies on the market.
