Thank you for the review. Ink looks nice but I don't believe it's interesting enough to buy it. There's plenty of interesting dark blues :)

It looks like a very useable ink, suitable for many different situations.

Thank you for the review!!!!


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Thanks for your review, Mew.

I have this ink & really love it. It's got that Sailor character that I've failed to find (yet) in other inks.

That Graphilo paper is good too, isn't it? Their notebooks are very minimalist, which I like. I like their A4 writing paper; I've used up a couple of packs of it recently.

Go for it! I've only got 1 bottle of most inks but still use them all. I never hoard. Ink needs a purpose in life LOL :-)

Graphilo paper is more than nice, I find it better than Tomoe, both 68gsm and 52gsm. :)

I have their unruled notebook, the one sold by Kobe shop which has 3 version, ruled, grid and unruled. I have some of their A4 writing paper too, and have used a few sheets, it's really good.
What works in favour of Graphilo is it's behaviour, which is very similar to Tomoe, and less showthrough. It's 82gsm, which is a lot thicker than any other version of tomoe.

Edit: about the ink, I find it really good. Very smooth and lubricating with generous flow. It's one of the 3 blue inks that I like. Hakodate twilight, vintage denim and Seiran.
I have bought a bottle of Omezaki ocean, but yet to use that one.
I have about 70 sailor inks which have no reviews on FPN, so I'll go through these 70 first, then get to others. :)

Nice I like a dark blue that doesn't come off as nearly black.

Curious about Sailor Jentle Blue (will find a review, but now clicking on related links), came to your review. What a pretty, dark color! I've just discovered that I like Platinum Blue-Black (my latest Nakaya came with the cartridge loaded), and all this time, I've had boxes of Platinum Blue-Black and even gave some away. Doi!

But this Sailor Shousaikan Seiran looks darker than PBB -- and I'm not actually looking for a darker blue, even though this one is so pretty.

 

Thanks for the review!
