white_lotus Posted September 10, 2016 Share Posted September 10, 2016 "They're coming..." This time it is a good announcement of more Sailor "Four Seasons" inks. Back in February it was announced in Japan that Sailor would re-issue eight inks in the Four Season line from the past in March of this year. Everyone wondered whether these inks would be released to North America, the EU, and other places where Sailor inks are available. But initially it was "Japan-only". But at the Washington DC Pen Show Sailor reps announced that these inks would also be available in the fall. Now I don't know if this means world-wide, the US, or what. My guess is wherever the existing Sailor Four Seasons inks are sold. Recently I had the chance to order some inks from Japan and the shop had the Four Seasons inks in stock. Being a lover of muted greens I added Rikyu-cha to my order. I'm quite happy that I did. Anderson Pens already has the new Four Season inks listed at their site with pictures and swabs. And their swab makes this look like a brown ink. I definitely have a green ink. I don't know if this reflects a batch difference or between what is being released in the US vs Japan. Guess we'll have to wait to find out once the inks become available. The usual papers Mohawk via Linen=Mvl, Tomoe River=TR, Hammermill 28 lb inkjet (Hij). The ink is somewhat water resistant. It has great lubrication at the nib. Quite shady on MvL. Definitely more olive green than what is shown in the pictures which were taken with an old Nikon Coolpics P50. When I mention using the Hij paper, I'm trying to say that inks often feel drier than on the MvL or TR papers. I don't feel that here with Rikyu-cha.
