  1. Sailor SouBoku is the latest nano-pigment ink from Sailor. It is a darker and more muted version of Sei Boku. Where Sei Boku has more vibrance and more noticeable green component to it, Sou Boku is a very somber classic blue-black. I reserve my personal judgement of this ink's color for now, but concede that it does look quite nice on ivory paper. Sei Boku is still my personal preference for its more cheerful hue. Being a nano-pigment ink, water resistance is fantastic. Drying time is very quick as well. This ink sheens quite readily, but the sheen is not at all distracting or very "i

    This isn't pretty! I don't count an ink as waterproof if contact with water is going to cause any amount of colour to run off the page observably. Originally posted here:

    The sheet was soaked for roughly half an hour, patted dry with a paper towel, and then hung out to dry on the clothesline. Originally posted here:

  4. From the album: Ink performance testing

    Sailor Seiboku and Souboku are not completely waterproof on Rhodia 80g/m² paper after all, in the face of prolonged soaking. Nevertheless, for most intents and purposes, I think they are close enough; a splash of water, or even putting the sheet under a running tap, will not cause any of the colour to run.

  5. 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
  6. Hi, I was wondering which place would offer the cheapest rates (with combined S&H included) for the said inks in the new (square) bottles? Currently found one place that sells Souboku (Writing Desk in UK) but even that was a preorder thingy... Of course there is always the option of ordering directly from Japan, any recommendations on that too? Found a few places on ebay but that was about it... Destination for said inks would be Finland. Thanks, mana
