**update** Return Of Sailor Limited Edition Inks

Recommended Posts

Kristina,

 

Your words must have been the magic charm. After over a month of no activity, and me having stopped checking, a package arrived today with my ink!!

 

 

Hey, that's great! Mine arrived in the mail today too...happily, at long last. Not so happy about getting the neighbor's cable bill too...

 

Thanks for posting your photo! I've seen several samples of the Yama-dori now and each adds something more to the discussion.

I thought some of you might be interested to know that eBay seller cool-japan has Yama Dori in stock again! He sent me an invoice earlier today letting me know they are back in stock. I'm not sure how many he has or how long they'll be in stock.

Mine is hopefully flying from Japan to England

 

I'm currently waiting for a Pilot pen and the Sailor Yama-dori, both from Japan. I wonder which will arrive first

These inks were released before I even got into fountain pens (which was in Q4 of 2012, I believe). That being the case, I'm immensely happy that these are now regular production inks; I picked up a bottle of Souten a few hours ago, and it's an AMAZING blue ink with drastic shading, nice character, and impressive sheen. I'll be wanting several bottles of this, methinks :P

 

 

Cheers!

Saskia - That is so beautiful!

 

My order just went in today for a bottle of Oku-yama and Yama-dori. Counting the days until delivery!

My bottle of Yama - Dori from Atsu has eventually arrived. It took an unusual time to clear customs for some reason but in the I got it. I tried it with a 1.9 italic... Impressive shading, reddish hues. Not as remarkable with the smaller nibs that I usually use but still very nicely behaved. I will try it with a superflex and see what happens :)

Apparently, a bunch of Sailor's are gonna be discontinued soon, including Grenade, Epinard, and Sky High. I guess they had to make room for the others :/

That's interesting news, can you share your source or post a link?

Yeah, what's up? I looked over at sailorshop.jp and they didn't have any of the current colors other than black, blue-black, and blue listed.

then I guess Sailor's main ink line now are the 4 season? mmm since Epinard and Tokiwa Matsu look the ame and Sky High and Souten are somewhat similar and they are priced the same so... chances that Kin-Mokusei will be replacing Apricot? Grenade and Oku-Yama are almost the same huh... coincidence?

 

hmm ok they will be reintroducing the previously discontinued inks looks like the 16 colors will change... Peach would probably be replaced by Sakura if that is the case well... that I'm not particularly sure but I think this is where Sailor is heading

But close isn't same! Darn you Sailor! They're killing two of my favorite colors of all time! Grrrrrrr...... :angry:

My source was the FPN-Philippines forum, where I'm semi-active. One Ms. Cindy, who is usually in the know regarding these things, was the one who brought this to attention, having received the news from Sailor. She's affiliated with Scribe Writing Essentials, a shop Filipino FP enthusiasts would be familiar with. This was an advisory from the shop itself on the FPN-P Facebook page, so I'm strongly inclined go believe it. I'm just as annoyed as everyone else, but at least Shigure and Souten survive :/

 

 

Sorry to be the bearer of horrible news.

 

Kevin

 

Edit:

Rechecked the post, didn't actually say that Sailor was the one who contacted Ms. Cindy. Still, extremely unlikely that she'd just make this up or say something without definitive proof.

Hm. I might get a couple more backups from the current line, but if more of the seasonals are gonna come back—including Sakura-mori, which I have never been able to find—then it's a decent trade. Especially if they re-release Rikyu-cha so I can get another bottle of it!

In other words the line that is/was on the market now. Interesting. Three I know and love...so I'm now expected to investigate the newer inks coming out for possible replacements? Sigh! :closedeyes: Fortunately I've seen the comparisons of the LEs or what-were-extinct-but-aren't-now, with the mainstream or were-but-will-be-extinct (or will they?) inks; yet, I wonder, why does Sailor bother? Ah yes, the pricing game.... :wallbash:

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d
    • A Smug Dill
      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
