Pilot Iroshizuku Asa‑gao Ink Review


I’m a graduate of Southern Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. I’m not sure how I missed it, but I only recently learned that President Albert Mohler is a fountain pen enthusiast. He posted something about it recently on social media. It didn’t take long until people asked him his favorite ink. He responded with Pilot’s Iroshizuku Asa-gao. Call me a fan-boy, but I immediately had to try it out.


I see why Dr. Mohler likes it so much. It’s no secret in the fountain pen world that Pilot’s Iroshizuku line is at the top. Their deep, rich hues flow well from about any pen. They’re reliable. They’re beautiful. They come in attractive bottles. It’s hard to argue with anyone who says they’re the best.


Asa-gao, or “morning glory,” is a beautiful blue that leans purple. I generally have my fantastic Pilot Custom Heritage 92 inked up with it at all times. Go ahead. Just call me Al. Give the morning glory a whirl, y’all.
