Sailor Maruzen Nihombashi River Blue

Recommended Posts

As I described previously, the limited edition Sailor inks for the Maruzen Nihombashi store were reissued recently. I honestly don't know the full extent of the line but one of the inks is a water resistant blue, River Blue. This is the main distinction for this ink along with a little bit of pink sheen. It's definitely a very professional style of ink, nothing too flashy. There are not that many water-resistant, near waterproof, dye-based inks on the market, and it's a quality that some in the professional and school environment appreciate. The general handling for the ink is typical Sailor, fairly wet, problem-free across a broad range of papers.

 

This ink is an all around pleasant ink, and I don't consider that a negative.

 

Again, I have no idea if this ink is actually available even at the Maruzen Nihombashi store. Or whether more will be made, or when.

 

Pen: Edison Mina (F-steel)

Papers: MvL=Mohawk via Linen, TR=Tomoe River, Hij=Hammermill 28 lb inkjet, Rhodia=Rhodia 90g ivory.

Camera: iPhone 7

The lighting wasn't so great on this one and the ink appears darker than in reality, not by a lot though.

Thank you for the review. I like it, though if it were priced like the other Athena inks, there are other blues that I would be happy with in less expensive lines.

The box has a 2000 ¥ sticker on the bottom, so at the store it doesn't appear to have been any more in price than usual for Sailor bespoke inks, though a number of shops seem to have increased their prices above that level.

 

Of course, getting it here to America, it wasn't that inexpensive. But it was a good deal less than a Bungbox ink. :)

And for those persons wanting a bottle in America, Atsu Tanaka, "21tgif," is offering one on Ebay auction which closes, Tuesday 10PM PDT. I only saw it today, prior to seeing this review. (Several persons seems to be very interested in winning a bottle, four days prior to auction's ending!)

The ink blots look like baby feet!

 

Oh wait. Wrong forum. That's the psychology forum. 🤐😁

And another person in California has a bottle with a BIN price of $129.

Thank you for doing these wonderful reviews of otherwise hard to find inks. I am so glad to see them.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
