white_lotus Posted September 20, 2016 Share Posted September 20, 2016 As nearly everyone knows Sailor, a Japanese company, makes very fine pens and very fine inks. This ink came out with the most recent issue of "Four Seasons" inks a few years back. (A new release is coming soon, perhaps October 2016.) I've had this ink a while, and I'm sure I've used it, but it appears I never actually reviewed this ink. Some folks prefer their greens to lean either towards blue or towards yellow. This one leans towards blue as you might expect from being called "Evergreen Pine". Not as dark as Miruai, Tokiwa-matsu definitely shows as a green ink. So chances are you can't cheat at work pretending it's a black. But it has all the good Sailor qualities of flow and lubrication and rich saturation we have come to appreciate. The usual papers for me: Mohawk via Linen=MvL, Tomoe River=TR, Hammermill 28 lb inkjet=Hij. Quite shady on all papers I used. The B nib on the Pelikan lays down a lot of ink with this wet Sailor. Lots of red sheen on Tomoe River. Not completely washed away, but definitely not very water resistant either. Fairly typical actually. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
