Sky High Vs. Souten Vs. Kon-Peki

Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts

Venator, I am really glad that you find the comparison useful. But really, Souten is so similar to Sky High that I am sure that you will be happy with it. And if we're lucky, Sailor just might decide to bring back Sky High in a few years as they seem to be doing with their Jentle inks range (the cycle seems to be 4-5 years).


As for the Sailor ink supplier in Australia, I really haven't been successful finding any that sells these inks at reasonable price. So I always go to eBay for Sailor inks , and I can recommend seller called "cool-japan". Even if some inks are not in stock just contact Atsu and he can get them in for you in most cases.


There are also some sellers on eBay that sell the inks a lot cheaper but I haven't tried them so I can't comment on that. Good luck!

Thanks for the info SNAK. Sakura-kitty-japan is a Japanese e-bay seller whom I have used before and has recently begun selling the Jentle range. They have Souten for $28 shipped, but most of the others are around $23.


I have been buying more ink than I can keep up with lately but I am sure I will get around to Souten sooner rather than later.

This thread confirms that I will be buying Souten. I don't have a bright, cerulean blue, and I was torn between Souten and Kon Peki. They are both so expensive.

I just grabbed 2 more bottles of Sky High. My local guy has some old stock. Love this ink. Kon-peki has it's own charm but Sky High is the king of this particular mountain for me. Wins hands down on the sheen, shade and lube propoerties, though Kon-Peki is a tad wetter, it is also a bit lighter and less saturated. It also smells better but on every other test Sky High comes out on top. I also loved Summer Sky but have not see than one in ages.

I know, I have hoarded up on Sky High so by my calculations, I should be okay for about 7 years :blush: , but I am hoping that Sailor will bring back Sky High in 4 or 5 years time like they did with Tokiwamatsu, Okuyama and Yamadori.



Still waiting on the re-release of Rikyu-Cha .... :bawl: :bawl: :bawl: :bawl:
