Plein air urban sketcher uses ink and watercolor when sketching most of the time. Need a permanent ink for drawing that stays put when covered with watercolor washes. This ink has a reputation for having more pigment than the Platinum pigmented ink. Testing verifies this as this ink exhibits some bloom when covered with a watercolor wash which darkens the watercolor. Otherwise this is a fantastic ink. Goes on smoothly and dries quickly. Everything you commit to paper will still be there if it gets wet. Just slightly smudged.

I'm a big fan of Brad Dowdy (the pen addict website and podcast) and from time to time I hear him make mention of concerns about Sailor's pigmented inks. He cautions that it can be troublesome to clean if you leave it in your pens for more than a couple of weeks.

Sailor's pigmented blue black (Sei Boku) is my overwhelming ink of choice. I have it in no less than seven pens at this very moment. Most of those are piston fillers, so they go a long time before I write them out of their ink, and the ink might be in any one pen for three or more months at a time.

With all due respect to Brad and his own experience, but I've never had any difficulties cleaning Sei Boku or Kiwa-Guro (the black ink) out of any of my pens. Pens that don't seal tight and dry out fast (like Lamy Safaris in my experience) are just a bummer overall, but even in a Safari, cleaning a dry-out of Sei Boku is no different than any other ink. I've never found it to be stubborn to clean.

So why choose one of these pigmented inks then? Sailor is a premiere Japanese brand with a long history, and Sei Boku is just absurdly gorgeous on paper that will let it shade, like on Tomoe River. It's essentially rock solid in its waterproof qualities. It's a sophisticated, elegant shade of blue black, and for me at least it's the yardstick against which I measure all other inks.

My favorite ink.

Permanent, good flow, and haven't had a problem with it. I mostly use it in my Pilot Prera and Pilot metropolitan.

The blue-black color has good shading, no greenish tinge, and looks really nice — equally good for letters and business.

I also have the black, which is very black and a great performer

These have the same slight distinctive chemical smell that all sailor inks have -- a little like paint.

FAQs about the Sailor Pigmented Ink(50ml)

Q:
Does the Sailor pigmented ink similar to India ink in that it can either pit or corrode a fountain pen nib?
Asked on Mar 25 2016 by Chris
A:
The Sailor pigmented ink is not like India ink. It will not corrode the nib. Because it has pigment in it, if it is left to dry out in the pen, it could cause problems but for normal use, it will not damage the pen.
Q:
Does the pigment in this ink contain carbon particles? Does the pigment in Platinum Carbon Black contain carbon particles? Which has a higher saturation of pigment?
Asked on Nov 12 2015 by Ryan
A:
Both have carbon particles. The pigment particles in the Platinum ink settle over time, and the particles in Sei Boku and Kiwa Guro do not because they are much finer.
Q:
Is the difference between pigmented ink and the Jentle about it being waterproof?
Asked on Mar 21 2014 by Delores Taylor
A:
Pigmented inks are darker, richer, quick drying and water resistant. Some manufacturers call them Nano ink. It’s more permanent than Sailor Jentle ink. So if you get them on materials for example fabrics, it is nearly impossible to wash off. But this feature is sometimes important for signing official documents.
