I was reading this blog article and it randomly mentioned some type of Sailor Jentle ink called "Miyougi Amber" (with a picture of a very unique bottle and writing sample to boot!):

So, anyone know what other colors are in the line? Is this an extension of the Sailor Jentle ink brand? Or just the same colors rebranded with different packaging bottles?

 

I hope it's not a limited edition release or something....

It won't be repackaged, unfortunately: Sailor always seems to vary similar inks, as Sam Capote and others have shown with both writing samples and chromatography, so the regular Grenade is different from Oku-yama, Epinard from Tokiwa-matsu, and so on.

 

It's a Hougado ink. Information on Sailor's Hougado inks is rarer than for the inks Sailor made for Bungbox or for Nagasawa (the Kobe series), and nothing comes up for Myougi. It's not as brown as the Kobe Arima Amber and not as green as the Kobe Shinkaichi Gold.

 

What we need is one of those Japanese magazines devoted to a single brand - I forget the name for them - with everything in. Actually, what we need is for Sailor to make all its discontinued inks again: between those and the ones Sailor makes for pen shops, there'd be over a hundred colours, all of them Sailorly gorgeous.

The one Sailor ink I really wish I could get would be the 2009 LE Shigure Purple. Arrrghh...back then, I didn't even know fountain pens existed. XD

 

So many colors lost to time...
