I feel a song coming on... I apologise for the images, bad camera day.

If there is righteousness in the heart, There will be beauty in character. If there is beauty in character, There will be harmony in the home. When there is harmony in the home, There will be order in the nation. When there is order in the nation, There will be peace in the world. Bhagawan Shri Satya Sai Baba

Hot damn, it looks pretty similar to PPS.

 

Its slightly lighter than PPS unless in a wet writer. I apologise for the quality of the images. I am going to have to play with scanning for future reviews.

This is my joint favourite of the series - so far...

A wonderful blue and I'm sure this will be always inked in some pen or other.

Ooh. Like this one a lot.... :puddle: Might this be the replacement for the discontinued Sailor Jentle Sky High?

Thanks for the review.

Even though I was feeling the blues and a little bored with blue, I saw this one and thought ...ooooo...pretty.

 

Thanks for doing these reviews.

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

It is lovely, and will be inked regularly when I find a pen that isn't sulking for some reason..!

I can't tell you as no experience of the Sailor ink. However, I love this shade, it is different, unique, and of course sheeny..

Yes, I missed the first shipment but I hope to order Blue Velvet when it is back in stock at Goulet. I am hoping that it is well behaved.

The Goulet swab of this ink looks a bit like the Ink That Shall Not Be Named, but definitely shows a hint of sheen. The Regency Blue swab shows some sheen as well.

I don't have any experience of that ink, but yes there is sheen.

It is very well behaved and easy to flush having had the pleasure of the same 3 times!! I also managed to spill some and had a Smurfy afternoon!
