Nice Stuff....Please Compare wiht the Bombproff De Atamentis....Seems like the same colour family

Showthrough and waterproof

http://i1286.photobucket.com/albums/a617/Morbus_Curiositas/Sailor%20Jentle%20shigure/SailorJentleShigure008bleed_zps5e92678b.jpg

Little but very acceptible showthrough with Medium nib.... Quite strong bleeding with the 2,3 Italic...

But using the 2.3 Italic is like throwing a Molotow cocktail to the paper :wallbash:

Do not know if it survives longer swims... But this looks very legible after 2 minutes in Water

Too Conclude

Very nice and well-behaving ink. It has a nice familiar smell of ink....

Very dark blue.... (PM for a postcard)... Highly saturated (my advise clean your FP more often).

It is one of the deepest and richest dark Blues I have seen sofar....

Very Impressive....

Thanks a lot Arrigato Dennis and Rik :D

Regards

Xie is my last name (I know how Chinese names are confusing :D ) I already have 5 of the 8 Four-Season inks, including this one. I may get the other three someday...

I adore this ink, although it startles me to hear it referred to as a blue-black! Anderson pens and Isellpens.com both carry Sailor Shigure. So does Pen Chalet. Thanks for the review!

Yes I love Shigure too. I think it's more of a blue violet, maybe even into the violet range.

"I adore this ink, although it startles me to hear it referred to as a blue-black!"

 

I'm just as startled as you. Shigure is supposed to be and has always been described as a deep purple ink.

It appears deepest darkest blue to me.... almost black dependend on what nib you use...

Nice Review.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Yeah, Shigure is definitely a dark purple.

(Sorry for the messiness... I love Shigure and use it very often, for anything and everything, so it wasn't hard to find a shot of it in action!)

 

My only qualms with it are that it's not super water-resistant (not a deal-breaker, but that would have been a nice bonus) and that it can take a long time to dry on some papers. I found I was able to smudge some writing on Rhodia about a half hour after, and this was in an XXF Pelikan nib. Otherwise, it's a wonderful ink that flows well. I have a bottle on its way to me.

How similar is this to Diamine Bilberry?

Cannot help you here.... I do not own the Diamine

Nice review, well its really hard to decide that its a dark blue, or almost dark blue purple. Its have definitely lots of purple in it, more than what you can find in a regular blue, its came out when its get cleaned. No argue, that's a class one ink, as all Sailor. Sailor absolutely placed itself to the highest rank of ink manufacturer. Can't say about their pens, hopefully can about few weeks.

I have used this ink regularly for the past month and it is a very dark purple. In a fine nib it will appear almost black. In a broad wet nib it will show its true color. It us also nicely lubricated. :thumbup:

My sample of Shigure was very purple. Beside PR Tanzanite, the Tanzanite appeared to have no purple at all. Even your photos here appear purple to me.

On second glance they have a bit of purple it depends on the lightfallandthe Nib used...

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
