Sailor Kingdom Note Falco Peregrinus


Recommended Posts


Kingdom Notes second series of bespoke inks from Sailor was themed "Wild Birds". This was back in 2013 I believe. When I fell down the rabbit hole of bespoke inks I was fairly selective and for whatever reasons I didn't get many from these series, except of course, Lidth's jay. Recently an inky friend in Japan sent me a couple KN samples so I could review them. Falco peregrinus is one.


Normally gray inks don't interest me even though they probably shade better than black inks, but I always prefer the latter as they are decisive. Black is an ink for serious writing and correspondence. To me, black always looks so right on the page while grays typically make me shudder and cringe, especially those that look like pencil. If I wanted to write with a pencil I would have used a pencil! Anyway, this gray does not suffer from that deficiency.


In my wet Edison Premiere, this wet ink writes very dark, dark enough to be near black. It's a kind of "cool" black as I see a little bit of purple/violet in the dye mix. I was thinking when I asked for a sample of this ink that I wouldn't like it because it's gray, but in fact I do. It's very wet, very saturated. Perhaps in a dry pen it might become more "gray-like".

Nice review. This is one I've always wanted just for the name, but the colour sadly does not grab me as some of the other Kingdom Note inks.

Never pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel.
