Sailor Ishida Bungu Hakodate Yama

Recommended Posts

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.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
