Pilot makes some pretty great inks in their Iroshizuku line, that much is certain. But there's one ink that tends to get by far the most attention: Kon-Peki! You could say it's the superstar of inks, almost anyone into pens knows Kon-Peki. And it's the favourite 'blue' ink of pretty much everyone who had the pleasure of using it!
I disagree with the public opinion though: it's not my favourite 'blue' (notice the conveniently placed quotation marks!). But it is, on the other hand, my favourite Turquoise ink!
Really, I don't know if I'm the only one on this, but to me, Kon-Peki is more of a Turquoise than it is blue! That being said, it's much darker than most turquoise inks. Which is actually a good thing because I don't really like using turquoise inks on a daily basis as they are often too light.
As with all Iroshizuku inks, Kon-Peki performs spot-on (why did I even bother mentioning this)! Properties are good, it has shading, it dries fast and it even has a slight bit of red sheen in some places!

Price seems to be the everlasting and only issue with this ink. At almost 40 EUR for a bottle, it's by far the most expensive ink I can think of! This price issue seems to be mostly situated here, in the EU though, as American prices are much lower (25-30 USD)!
