I hadn’t heard of these inks before, and they look simply lovely. Thank you so much for this comparison! I haven’t explored Sailor inks yet, but they certainly deserve a closer look. I’ve read lots of positive things about them on FPN. Might be a good brand to explore in 2020.

Like you, I hadn't heard of these inks.

 

This thread is a helpful introduction.

 

I agree with you that they're worthy of consideration in 2020.

Wonderful hues! Sumire seems to be very similar to Souten. Which would be nice, since I’ve never found an ink quite like Souten.

Thought I'd just post this here, as it might be useful.  

I'm personally considering the Haha and Nekoyanagi as very similar as the types of colours are very similar.  I've asked a few people at my uni which of the three they prefer the most (in this photo), and the general consensus is that the Nekoyanagi looks the nicest (by a long way).  The Neko is more useable as a colour, but the balance of the different colours in the Haha make it more magical for me personally.

 

The Studio 123 is a completely different beast.  Probably also the most usable and manageable.  I also find it easier to create ink pools with the Haha and 123 than the Nekoyanagi.  I'm convinced that the 123 flows the best in my Sailor however.

 

Edit: Photo size was too large (rookie mistake)

Thanks for showing your writing sample.  I am surprised that Studio 123 is that dark.  I haven't tried it yet because the samples I had seen seemed much lighter - about the same as HaHa.  I may just have try it now.
