    Sailor Jentle - Souten

    http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ0110.jpg http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ0109.jpg Written review on Rhodia dotpad #16 http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ0103-Edit.jpg Desiderata Mercury Flex Pen, Zebra G nib, OCM Pure Cotton Paper http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ0111.jpg Sakura Koi Water Brush, Strathmore Watercolor Paper http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ0113.jpg Souten is my newest ink purchase. I bought it because I lack a blue light enough to use in pointed pen calligraphy that still reads blue when a lot of ink is laid down. This one does, and it works really well for this purpose. As an ink for everyday writing, I'm not quite so impressed. Like most Sailor inks I've tried, Souten is on the wet side. It's not extremely lubricating, though, and I find my pens write with a bit more feedback than I'd prefer. One area where Souten really shines is dry time. I did the test three times just to make sure. This ink dries on non-absorbent papers like Rhodia in under 5 seconds! For comparison (sorry, I don't have access to any comparable blue hues at the moment), Herbin's Bleu Nuit dried in 12 seconds (very respectable) and Shin-kai dried in 16 seconds (average). Reasonable care was taken to ensure color accuracy, etc.
