Sailor Yama-Dori (Copper Pheasant)

Recommended Posts

Officially the full name of this ink is Sailor Jentle Four Seasons Yama-dori (Copper Pheasant). I've had a bottle of this for a while and recently opened it up. Many people adore Yama-dori and rightly so. This is a great deep, blue teal. But if you don't like green-leaning blues, then the color won't be right for you. Handling is excellent as expected from Sailor.

 

Usual papers: MvL=Mohawk via Linen, Hij=Hammermill 28 lb inkjet, TR=Tomoe River.

 

I believe this ink is noted for having a red sheen, but MvL and Hij don't typically offer much sheen, and I used a F nib here, so not seeing it.

I don't see what would cause red sheen here at all.

Not very water resistant at all.

On not too absorbent paper and in a wet nib, this ink really does sheen like crazy.

 

Thanks for the review of still one of my top three inks. :D

Thanks for the review of one of my favorite inks! I wonder if you looked at your TR sample under a lamp you would see the sheen? Even with your fine nib, I would think it would show up, even if just on the edges of the letters. Thanks again for posting the review.

Sorry I don't have either of the inks you mention, so can't offer a comparison. Perhaps someone else can say how they differ.

 

Yes there is some sheen on Tomoe River. The nib is fairly stingy, so not as extensive as others obtain.

I wouldn't say this is deadly accurate for colour, but hopefully it does give the gist for comparison: (Sorry, no Eau de Nil)

That's interesting.

I do have a ml or so of the Syo-Ro and going from your scan, it's much closer to the Yama-Dori rather than your scan of the Syo-Ro.

Thanks for putting it up.

The swabbed area is a pretty good match, on my screen, to what I have in front of me - the writing, not so much. Syo-ro does go down like Yama-dori, but dries much greener. Although in truth, with the right nib and paper combo, the difference is not as noticeable.

Many thanks.

I think I might get a pot of the Sailor one.

Yama-dori sheens on all papers for me, even with fine nibs.

Yep, fine nib on office xerox paper, sheen. It's nuts.

 

It's way to weak to moisture, though. Very smudgy. I have to be very wary of clammy fingers or even humidity in the air on fully dry writing.

I hope this helps.

 

Thank you.

 

 

And thank you also. No matter how extensively you search and read, something always stays in hiding. I had missed your comparison.

 

Looking at the scans put up by everybody, I'm wondering if the sample I was sent as Syo-Ro actually was/is Ku-Jaku.

What pen and nib size did you use for this comparison?

Osmiroid Rolatip Medium Soft in a dip pen holder. It manages to give a pretty good approximation of an averagely wet fountain pen, but without as much cleaning up - only caveat is it will tend to slightly exaggerate any shading properties.

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now.

      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
