Sailor Ishida Bungu Hakodate Yama

I had written up this review a while back during my "Green Phase", but apparently never posted it, perhaps because I wasn't as complete as usual. This is definitely not in the category of murky, or muted, greens. This is a fairly bright, but somewhat chalky green, leaning heavily towards blue. It appeared in my review of four Sailor greens, and many commented on their dislike of the color. I don't think it's bad, but it's definitely outside the normal range. I'm sure other manufacturers have colors like this, but it's somewhat unusual in the Sailor range.

 

The sun was shining quite brightly today and not sure I got the best pictures. But you should get the idea. The ink was fairly water resistant in the test compared to many others.

This actually looks quite similar to my vintage bottle of Waterman Tropical Green. Interesting colour, but I find I don't get much use out of it.

The praise of the praiseworthy is above all rewards.

Not really "my" green.... :sick:

Yeah, not mine either....

Thanks for the review, though, white_lotus. Seeing inks I *don't* want are as useful (if not more so) as inks I do.

      @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

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      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

      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.
