Sailor Jentle 50mL bottles

Recommended Posts

I raided a local stationary shop of mine (Brevi Manu in Germany) recently, and discovered that the owner is still carrying two bottles of Sailor Jentle Yama Dori, one bottle of Sailor Jentle Oku Yama, one bottle of what I am pretty sure is Nioi Sumire, as well as one bottle of what I am fairly sure is Doyou.  None of these have boxes, and the Oku-Yama has an older style label than the others (solid red).  If anyone is interested in these, I can get in touch with the shopkeeper for you; Brevi Manu doesn't have an online store presence but I'd be happy to act as a medium if anyone is still searching for them.  Drop me a PM if you've been looking for these discontinued inks in the old, squat 50mL bottles.  Please note the Sailor Jentle line was discontinued in 2015, so they're all at least 7 years old.

Last I checked (three minutes ago), PenGallery still has at least four Sailor Jentle Shikisai colours in 50ml bottles available for shoppers to add to the shopping cart.

I don’t think that is correct. I’m not going to be home for a few days yet, so I cannot check the dates of manufacture on my many 50ml bottles of Sailor Jentle Shikisai ink right now; but I’m pretty certain none of them dates as far back as 2015.

 

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct, and valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

I'll admit being fuzzy on when those were discontinued; I went off of when ... uh.. Jetpens, I think, said they were.  I can say much more subjectively that I bought all of my Jentle inks from this shop 2 or 3 years ago and they're still some of my favorites in my collection that see regular use.

I was incorrect. Four out of nine 50ml bottles of Sailor Jentle Shikisai ink in my stash of opened bottles have production dates in 2015. The remainder of the nine have production dates in the second half of 2016.

I didn't bother to dig out the twenty unopened bottles I have stashed somewhere under the guest bed to inspect, but I suspect most if not all of them were produced in 2016, because I acquired them from the same source as that of the four bottles shown on the left in the photo above.

You had me look at my bottles for that stamp, which I never even realized was there!  So these are all from the same shop, and these are the dates on my bottles:
Okuyama: 12. April 2016
Doyou: 6. June 2016
Miruai: 7. December 2015
Rikuyu-cha: 13. April 2017
Nioi-Sumire: 6. August 2014
Yama-dori: 26 November 2015
Chu-Shu: 12. January 2017

I looked at that and thought...wow...manufactured in 1927.

Unless they're from the future!! 🤣
