  1. Sailor Kingdom Note "Crustacean series" Macrocheira kampferi (Japanese Spider Crab) Thanks to an inky friend in Japan I've received a sample of this ink from the Kingdom Notes' Crustacean series. Most English-speaking people refer to this ink as "Japanese Spider Crab," but the label actually uses the scientific name given above. Regardless of the name, this is a muted orange ink, and somewhat desaturated as are many of the inks in this Crustacean series. It is drier than the inks in the previous Bird and Insect series, but that's just by comparison. I doubt anyone would actually say this ink

    Sailor Kingdom Note Falco Peregrinus

    Kingdom Notes second series of bespoke inks from Sailor was themed "Wild Birds". This was back in 2013 I believe. When I fell down the rabbit hole of bespoke inks I was fairly selective and for whatever reasons I didn't get many from these series, except of course, Lidth's jay. Recently an inky friend in Japan sent me a couple KN samples so I could review them. Falco peregrinus is one. Normally gray inks don't interest me even though they probably shade better than black inks, but I always prefer the latter as they are decisive. Black is an ink for serious writing and correspondence. To me,
  3. In the beginning of the Sailor bespoke ink journey, the Pen and Message shop generated quite a bit of interest with their inks. They actually have two “lines” of specialty Sailor inks: the Pen and Message line and Writing Lab, the latter a collaboration with another shop. I’ve never tried to obtain the Pen and Message inks; surprisingly some of them didn’t appeal to me. They quickly became hard to get once the craze for Cigar, a Pen and Message ink, took off. So this post is about the Writing Lab inks, which intrigued me greatly. They have three inks in the category and I’ll review them al
  4. For a long time I had my eye on the Hougado Pen Gallery inks, a shop located in Matsuyama, Ehime Prefecture, Japan on the island of Shikoku. Their original series of bespoke Sailor inks were kinds of blacks, and don’t seem to be reviewed here on FPN, except one by Lgsoltek, which has references to writing samples by saskia_madding, who didn’t like them. The shop has another series of inks based on the well known Japanese book Botchan. This book may be as famous in Japan as Huckleberry Finn is in America. The inks are colors representing some of the main characters in the book. Boochan Blue

    Sailor Style Dee Delta Purple Rain

    Sailor Style Dee Delta "Water City" Tsuyuten Murasame (Purple Rain) I have to say I'm not completely sure of the English translation for the name of this ink. Perhaps one of our Japanese FPN friends can illuminate us. Recently one of our Japanese FPN members pointed out some Sailor bespoke inks from a shop called STYLE DEE in Osaka with a brand called DELTA Original Ink. I was confused because there is also an Italian pen maker called Delta with a few inks available. But these are real Sailor inks. The inks seem to go along with an inexpensive demonstrator pen ¥4,300, and unfortunately I d

I was confused because there is also an Italian pen maker called Delta with a few inks available. But these are real Sailor inks. The inks seem to go along with an inexpensive demonstrator pen ¥4,300, and unfortunately I didn’t put one in my shopping cart. There were originally four inks, based on the seasons of Osaka. “Water City” Umeda Yasei (Umeda Night Blue, a deep

  10. An extremely kind FPN inky friend sent me a sample of this ink. I'm not sure I have the spelling of the name of this shop in Japan correct as I've seen several different variations. I think they have only two bespoke inks, and neither is available online; one must personally visit the store. I really like this ink as it's a nice deep blue, slightly greyed. Very sharp and good-looking. I could see this ink in heavy use down on Wall and Broad Streets. I have nothing but good thoughts about this ink. But since it's so impossible to obtain we'll have to use something else on a regular basis. P
