  1. Souboku (蒼墨) is Sailor's new addition this year to its line of pigment inks for fountain pens, after the old stalwarts kiwaguro (極黑) and seiboku (青墨). Since moving to the new, taller square bottles with the smaller footprint, Sailor has dropped the word ‘Nano’ and the hyphens from the names in this product line. Souboku certainly has significantly more black in it than seiboku. I find that it dries to a very pleasant, if sombre, blue-grey colour, but only if it hasn't reached saturation point. It produces shading in distinct steps, almost as if there is a threshold beyond which the ink will
  2. Okay so I know this sounds strange (or normal for those who have been in the hobby for long enough), but I've received a lot of information regarding pigmented inks which have ended up being quite confusing. The main source of confusion is in its behaviour on paper. I've seen glowing reviews of inks such as Sailor nano inks, Montblanc Permanent Inks and Platinum Carbon ink, but then I've got some more confusing (not contradictory) information regarding the pigmented inks from Rohrer & Klingner regarding their behaviour on paper: bleeding and feathering (at least with flex)? little blee

    Kiwa-Guro Vs Sou-Boku

    To me, Sailor Kiwa-Guro is a remarkable ink because it has a very subtly grainy writing feel which offers me much more control on super-smooth nibs. Also it reduces the line width of a pen without making the pen appear dry or unpleasant. I adore that. I am in awe of that. In terms of colour, it's a very interesting shade of black but it's still black and I'm not big on black ink. So I'm very tempted to buy Sou-Boku, but I'm hoping that Sou-Boku is the same as Kiwa-Guro except for its colour. Is it? Or is it also different in other aspects such as wetness, feel...? Thanks.

    Different Shades Of Sailor Seiboku

    ( I'm not sure in which forum subsection this post rightly belongs, when it is: • not a review of Sailor seiboku pigment ink; and • not comparing seiboku against any other ink. ) After @crahptacular clued me in (thanks!) that the relatively wide range of colours that I elicited from Sailor souboku is related to the idea of 'dryness' of nibs and inks, and it occurred to me that it is not unlike the phenomenon of shading but elicited using multiple nibs over different lines of writing, I set out to identify the 'standard' ink review equipment I would use to show the variation in appearance of
