Sailor, as most of you are aware is one of the Big 3 companies in Japanese fountain pen industry. Apart from some great nibs, Sailor does manufacture some amazing inks. Probably, Sailor is the only Japanese company that has released many more variants of ink along the lines of store-speciality inks than under its own umbrella. The ink I am reviewing is the old Sailor Jentle Sky High Ink with product code (13-1000-241). It been one of my favourite blue inks, although I do have a bottle of similarly hued and a gentler newer Souten (13-1005-205). Here goes the review. Below is a link to the review on my blog.Sailor Jentle Sky High Ink (Old) Review Bottle/Packaging Sailor Sky High came in a 50 ml bottle and looked like the below one. It was packaged in white cardboard box with everything except brand and volume of ink, in Japanese There is a plastic funnel insert to help fill your pen with ink, which in my humble opinion is equally useless, given the pan-like structure of the bottle.Writing with Sky High The ink is a well behaved with absence of any noticeable feathering on most papers. Depending on the paper thickness there could be some ghosting in case you have used multiple layers of ink, else it a pretty much 'no worries' vibrant blue ink.Feathering: None Ghosting: A bit on Muji notebook Color Variation: Great, Vibrant from light to dark azure shades Sheen: Towards Violet & Red Wetness: High-Medium-Low Saturation : High-Medium-LowWater Resistance: High-Medium-Low Ease of Cleaning: Easy-Moderate-DifficultShading: High-Medium-LowFlow: Good-BadLubrication: Good-BadDrying Time: 30 seconds+ Water Resistance: High-Medium-Low Price: High-Moderate-Low (Around $ 12 as landed price in 2014) Digital Colour Meter Nibs Main SuppliesPelikan M200 Cognac - Italic Nib Muji B6 PP Cover Notebook, Dotted PaperThank you for going through my very first fountain pen ink review.
