Sailor Evergreen

Recommended Posts

I just received my bottle of Sailor Evergreen. It's a great colour and it seems to have all the positive qualities of the Jentle line.

A quick comparison with two other fantastic unique green inks:

I like the looks of this one--is it generally available? Best source to buy it? How long will it be available? Sorry to bombard you with all these questions, but this is one ink I'd like to get before it disappears! Thanks!!

It's available from Japanese sellers, and I have no idea how long it will be around... It was released as one of four 'winter' colours in a Sailor seasonal ink limited offering, if I'm parsing the machine translated Japanese correctly. Perhaps we can look forward to 12 more new inks as the seasons roll around in the coming year?

 

I bought mine from engeika on eBay, but I've since been led to Rakuten (Japanese online market) by our intrepid fellow FPNers, and it seems there are better deals to be had there. My ink took a week to get here.

I may actually have forgotten to go to the second page... :embarrassed_smile: Now, buying in process. I want the drizzle with it as long as I can have the second shipped for the same $4 extra that a second bottle of the same ink would cost.

 

Danke, silexink.

Just thought I'd mention that I see Swisher has these limited edition inks in. No affiliation, yadda yadda...

I saw that - but not sure the colors are the same. The green looks chartreuse-like, not evergreen.... :huh:

Yep, those are the ones - the green has the same characters as on my bottle. This green does have a yellow undertone, but it definitely isn't chartreuse (at least as I understand the term - kind of a bright electric limey/lemony green?).

It's the same bottle as mine too. It's the same color. If you need to compare it to something, it's very similar to MB British Racing Green. Like Ryan's scan shows, the Sailor doesn't have as much of the dark component, and there is more yellow than the MB has. I'm very pleased with it.

Thanks for the comparison.

And how can this be, because he is the Kwisatz Haderach.
