  1. Disclaimer: I enjoy doing mini ink reviews for my personal reference, and I'd like to share them with others if they might be of help to gain an insight into the ink's appearance and performance. I generally don't have time to put together super comprehensive reviews, like some of our fantastic reviewers here do (thank you so much for your hard work!), but hopefully these mini reviews will still be useful as another point of reference. Maruzen Athena - Sepia Brown This ink comes in beautiful old-style bottles and is available for sale from Japanese "Maruzen" book stores. I believe at so

    Sailor For Maruzen Athena Sepia

    I'd taken some of the pics earlier, but only now getting to posting the review. Sailor makes inks for the Maruzen chain of stores under the Athena brand name. I'm not sure how widely they are available at the different stores. There have been some LE inks, but the Sepia is supposedly normally available. I received a sample from a generous FPN member. I hope someday to be able to acquire a whole bottle. There are a lot of other inks labeled "sepia," and this one is not the ultimate sepia. It's very good however. So having it in your ink wardrobe is not bad. Tried on Mohawk via Linen and Ham

    Maruzen Nihombashi Renga

    Maruzen is a big brand department store in Japan. They carry their own line of pens and inks named Century and Athena. It seems most of their inks are made by Sailor. I'm not sure how many inks they offer at the moment but I know they have some stunning colors in the line up. It seems follwoing inks were / are offered to customers: Akane (limited edidion, Nihomnashi branch) Eternal Blue hatobanezu Lemon Midori Renga River Blue Sepia (Athena branch)If anyone is able to complete the list, I would be grateful. By means of exchange I've managed to get a bottle of Renga. The jewel Sailor bottle

    Five Pine-Y Sailor Greens

    Sailor makes such fantastic inks, especially greens. Spurred by the generosity of our very awesome Claudia, I've put together a five-way comparison of pine green Sailor inks. You know, for those of you who need a reason to buy more. Er, right. Thanks, C.!

    Sailor Maruzen Nihombashi Akane

    Sailor Maruzen Nihombashi Akane (2017 re-issue) OK, let's start with some history. Long ago, perhaps around 2008, Sailor made some LE inks for the Maruzen Nihombashi store in Tokyo. Each ink was limited to 300 bottles. Fast forward to 2014. By then, the inks were long sold out but Akane had gone down in history as legendary, a grail ink, the best red Sailor had ever made. And there was never, EVAH, to be any more. So it became a mythical ink, perhaps on par with PPS, at least among fans of red inks. Well, all I can say is that sometimes pigs do fly, on rare occasions Hell does freeze over,

    Sailor Maruzen Nihombashi Murasaki

    Not so long ago a message appeared in my inbox offering some inks from Japan. Of course this excited me, as these were re-issues of previous Limited Edition inks made for the Maruzen department store in the Nihombashi district of Tokyo. These inks are only available at the store, so they are very difficult to obtain, even more so than the usual Sailor shop-exclusive inks. This particular ink is a rich, deep purple or deep grape hue. It has a heavy dye load, so it's not really very shady. But it has quite a bit of sheen on Tomoe River paper. The ink dries fairly quickly. The reason to have th

    Sailor Maruzen Nihombashi Fukurou

    Not so long ago a message appeared in my inbox offering some inks from Japan. Of course this excited me, as these were re-issues of previous Limited Edition inks made for the Maruzen department store in the Nihombashi district of Tokyo. These inks are only available at the store, so they are very difficult to obtain, even more so than the usual Sailor shop-exclusive inks. I wasn't really sure what this ink would be, other than brown in some respect. From the image of the box, it seemed like it would be a deep caramel hue, and this is not far off. The Fukurou has much less dye load than the Mu

    Sailor Maruzen Nihombashi River Blue

    As I described previously, the limited edition Sailor inks for the Maruzen Nihombashi store were reissued recently. I honestly don't know the full extent of the line but one of the inks is a water resistant blue, River Blue. This is the main distinction for this ink along with a little bit of pink sheen. It's definitely a very professional style of ink, nothing too flashy. There are not that many water-resistant, near waterproof, dye-based inks on the market, and it's a quality that some in the professional and school environment appreciate. The general handling for the ink is typical Sailor,

  12. I am looking for single shop inks. I went to Nihombashi Maruzen and got the Eternal blue and Hatobanezu grey. Where are the others? Did I miss any in the Marunouchi store? What are these colors?? See picture. These green boxes are not the store editions .. Correct? Thank you

    Sailor Maruzen - Jade

    Ok.. I just received some birthday presents from Japan.. Thanks to my lovely Nin(k)ja Traffiker.. This is Sailor Maruzen JADE!!!! :wub: It has a more gentle sheen (tone down) reddish-copper all over... You can't see it in the scanner.. Easy to see in person. Is not like some other inks that hits you over the head with it... example below... This is done with a scanner on Canson Tracing Paper (kind of like vellum).. Like Maruzen Akane, this ink NEEDS to be appreciated in person... pictures/scans.. will never do it justice. C.

    Maruzen Athena Sepia

    This is another one of those reviews that has been hard for me to write. Not because it didn’t live up to my expectations, but because it exceeded them so far… This ink sample was sent to me by same kind soul as the Tsuki-yo. It’s a very hard ink to get here in the States, and so far I’ve only found one online retailer who carries it (I’ll get to that later). Maruzen Athena ink is sold in Japan and that’s about the extent of what I know about the brand as a whole. I do know that this ink is a deep, rich brown that is dark enough to be a reliable daily user but just interesting enough
