  1. About this ink: This is a special or seasonal ink made by Sailor for Bung Box. The name of the ink can be broken down as: Tsuyu つゆ= dewdrop Hikari ひかり=light, shine So in my head I read it as Light shining on a dew drop. It matches a local tea, "Tsuyuhikari つゆひかり is a variety of a green tea plant that is grown in Omaezaki, Shizuoka-prefecture in Japan," according to my friend and colleague, Jesse (aka PenJockey.) Rumor has it if you request to sample this ink at Bung Box, they will brew you a cup of tea that perfectly matches this ink. TESTING: Although I am generally not a fan of Gre
  2. Given that Bung box ink is rather dear here...I would like some advise on which blue black to indulge in...deciding between 4B and Silent Night has me in a quandary. Any sage advise? BTW this would be my first purchase of a true blue black ink. I'm extraordinarily picky about ink.

    Matador - Sailor Bung Box Ink

    Sailor is my favourite ink maker (ex-aeque with J. Herbin). Sadly their most interesting inks are available only in Japan or from internet retailers. There are few japanese shops famous for their wide and interesting range of Sailor inks. One of most well-known is Bung Box. A lot of people were taken by interesting bottles and intriguing colors. It seems however that recently many ink enthusiasts started to shy away from this line since Bung Box inks became much more bitterly expensive than other Sailor inks. The line consists of quite a few colors. My list is incomplete and most of

  8. This is a review of the Bung Box (Sailor) color Fresh Oranges of Lake Hamana. Papers: This review was done on HP 32 pound Prem. Laser paper, printed using a laser printer. I also include writing and printing samples on Tomoe River cream and white, and Rhodia white dot pad. Pens: TWSBI 580 (orange) with a Medium nib. Pilot Metropolitan with a Medium Plumix Italic nib. Esterbrook J with a Esterbrook 9788-M nib This review includes both scans and photo. Observations about interaction of nibs and ink: The TWSBI wrote nice and wet with this ink. It was darker with little shading in a we
  9. Through Massdrop, Bung Box released a twin set of inks in celebration of Lunar New Year. I decided to do a low-tech review (mainly because I am laid-low by the flu.) The colors in the set are Kotohogi Kuremai and Hatsuyume Aofiji, a very pink red and a sky blue. The arrived yesterday. They arrived in traditional Sailor style bottles and boxes, including the plastic interior retaining cup. Although some folks might be unhappy with this, I prefer this to the traditional Bung Box bottles. I have a cat. I always fear for my carpets when inking up because Mr. P must be wherever I happen to be lo

    Tears Of Clown - Bung Box

    Some time ago Tinjapan send some Sailor LE ink to Sisnistral1 who, in turm, sent the rest of the samples to me. Thank you both of you Sailor is my favourite ink maker. Sadly their most interesting inks are available only in Japan or from internet retailers. Getting ink from Japan is expensive. Tears of Clown looks interesting. I like it. http://imageshack.com/a/img537/6700/fk3XJu.jpg Ink splash http://imageshack.com/a/img540/8494/RKQ56Z.jpg Drops of ink on kitchen towel http://imageshack.com/a/img910/2668/IOVzeL.jpg Software ID http://imageshack.com/a/img540/1200/

    Sailor Bungbox L'amant

    Inspired by Lgsoltek's beautiful ink review here, I have inked up a pen with this ink, and I have fallen in love with this one. It shades so nicely for me. For sheen photos please see Lgsoltek's review, and for fade test please see amberleadavis' review. To look at this ink from a different angle, I have mostly concentrated on the shading of this ink using different nib units that I used on my TWSBI 580 pen. I think this ink has great shading potential as long as the pen writes fairly wet. The highlight area is fuchsia and the darker shaded area is a dark violet. It reminds me of the 2nd fo

    Bung Box: Clowns Vs Taters

    A request was made for a quick side by side comparison of two Bung Box (Sailor) inks: Tears of a Clown and Sweet Potato Purple. I apologize for the distracting line, I did the swabs and splatters separately and taped them on. Notes: Tears of a Clown was inked in a standard med. TWSBI-Eco. There are no modifications on the nib. The Sweet Potato Purple was inked into a Shaeffer Javelin, modified with a magical Art Nib's mod,, and is a stub and somewhat flexy. Ink Characteristics: Both were very wet inks, richly saturated, well lubricated so even a stiff nib like the Eco's danced across the
  13. Vanness received additional Bung Box colors today, one of which is L'Amant, a color a few members have been waiting for. Price is $40 per bottle, but with it comes free priority shipping--more affordable and larger color range than available on the Bung Box's amazon website. The inks are in jar bottles, but I prefer that. Enjoy. Post Edit 11:06 AM Pacific: L'Amant is now gone, but there are still 8 other colors available.
  14. This is a review of a Limited Edition ink made by Sailor for Bung Box. Each glass bottle had a number on the bottom that was molded in the glass. There were only one hundred bottles of this ink made. By sheer dumb luck I happened onto one. I bought for a friend that was dying to get it. They gave me the sample used for this review. The bottle was rather beautiful, (image taken from Bung Box's Facebook page.) The ribbon and seal were a nice little add-on that made the entire opening festive and special. According to Bung Box, Sakurasaku means to celebrate. http://i296.photobucket.com/albu

    Nostalgia - Bung Box

    Bung Box is japanese retailer. They offer wide variety of pens and inks. Also Sailor makes some exclusives for them. When I first saw internet samples of Nostalgia I thought "wow - This is the One". http://imageshack.com/a/img661/4894/egYnvI.jpg www.bung-box.com I wanted to try it. Cyber6 who is amazing ink enabler send me a sample. I'm really grateful because she's spared me disappointment. Yup. It's the first time I kind of dislike the ink I enjoyed so much on scans. And scans weren't bad, they were fairly accurate. It's just the color lacks richness and depth on most of the papers.

    Green Tea - Bung Box

    Bung Box is japanese retailer. They offer wide variety of pens and inks. Also Sailor makes some exclusives for them. White Lotos (You can check her review here ) sent me sample of Bung Box 88 Green Tea ink. Thank you a lot! The bottle as presented on BBsite looks nice. http://imageshack.com/a/img538/5733/e7FM3k.jpg www.bung-box.com In real life however I find this ink rather bland. It's more on a dry side, the lubrication is less than average, and it shows absolutely none waterproofness. The color isn't bad, I like such hues, however you'll find easily inks that are cheaper and better
  20. Another Yu-yake, another Sunset, from Bung Box (Sailor). I don't have Iroshizuku Yu-yake to compare it with, unfortunately. Packaging Standard Bung Box packaging. And a piece of paper explaining the name of the ink: the colour of sunset you will see in the coastal city of Omaezaki, neither red nor orange but a subtle colour. http://s2.homezz.com/201412/5915/48882_o.jpg http://s3.homezz.com/201412/5915/48885_o.jpg Splash http://s0.homezz.com/201412/5915/48877_o.jpg Sample, Water-resistance, Dry time, and Comparison (The scan makes the colours more vivid than in real life.

  21. One of my most recent purchase, Bung Box Hatsukoi, also known as Bung Box Sapphire. The name "First Love" actually refers to Penman Sapphire, which I never had the chance to experience, as I converted to "Inkism" only a year ago. Packaging It comes with standard Bung Box box and in an elegant glass bottle. Also a piece of paper explaining the name of the ink. http://s0.homezz.com/201412/5915/48883_o.jpg http://s1.homezz.com/201412/5915/48881_o.jpg http://s3.homezz.com/201412/5915/48884_o.jpg Splash http://s0.homezz.com/201412/5915/48874_o.jpg Writing Sample (etc.) http://s3.homezz.co
  22. This ink is called "Omaezaki Ruri Kaishoku" (transliteration from Google Translate). Omaezaki is a city at the tip of a peninsula on Japan's Pacific coast. Ruri is some sort of glass or stone. Kaishoku means the colour of the ocean. This ink has a sister ink, called "Omaezaki Ruri Sora-iro", the colour of the sky. I think these two inks allude to the colours of the sky and ocean one would see in Omaezaki. Anyway I purchased this ink. The sky one is too light for my liking. Packaging Splashes (The sheen is crazy, so much that I can barely see the colour of the ink itself. But it was very
  23. Hi Everyone, After reading the many wonderful reviews that saskia_madding has been writing on the Sailor inks, I finally tried all of the Jentle line (except for Black and Doyou) and I of course got hooked! This brand really is amazing and now I’ve fallen in love with Epinard, Miruai, Shigure and Yama Dori! The only thing I am still searching for is one or two blues by Sailor. I don’t love cerulean blues so Souten wasn’t right for me and Nioi-Sumire was beautiful but not the shade I need at the moment. Although I loved the contrast of the red sheen and the blue ink of the basic Sailor Blue, t
