Professional Gear Slim Lucky Charm
This is a beautiful pen. The attention to detail is evident. I purchased the fine nib and love how well it writes. It is a smaller pen when compared to other pens such as the Sailor Professional Gear Realo, but still very functional. I overcame this issue by posting the cap and it works fine. I would highly recommend this pen to anyone who wants quality workmanship and functionality.

Professional Gear Realo
The Sailor Professional Gear Realo fountain pen that I recently purchased is very nice writing instrument. It is everything the reviews have said about the pen, which is regularly in the top rated list for fountain pens. I prefer the piston ink filling mechanism compared to cartridge type and like the ink viewing window that allows you to gage how much ink remains in the chamber. I rate the nib as one of finest looking nibs in the market. Smooth writing pen. I purchased a medium nib, which produces a thinner line width compared to my other medium nib pens that I have purchased, but the results still look nice; if not better. I highly recommend this pen.

Pigmented Ink(50ml)
Absolutely fantastic black ink. If you can accept the fact that this is a pigmented ink (and it's pretty easy to clean for a pigmented ink and about the same as most non-pigmented inks), it's the best all round black ink I've used and I go through a lot of black. Pretty dark but it has a metallic sheen when dry which on some papers may make it appear greyish. It's not quite as dark as Noodlers Heart of Darkness, Aurora Black or Herbin Perle Noir but it's almost there. It is as black or blacker than Noodlers Bulletproof Black. Dries really quickly. It's much quicker to dry than something like Bulletproof Black on high quality paper so there is very little risk of smearing if you are using this for say a Bullet Journal on high quality paper. It does not bleed or feather even on low quality cheap paper. Miles ahead of Aurora Black and considerably better than Perle Noir or Heart of Darkness in terms of cheap paper performance . It's even better than Noodler's Bulletproof Black on cheap paper. Works perfectly on Moleskine and even cheap filler paper from Sam's Club which is the cheapest of the cheap. I've never seen either Kiwa Guro or X-Feather feather on any paper so can't say whether one or the other is better in terms of avoiding feathering on cheap paper. However, Kiwa Guro is much better than X-Feather in terms of bleed or show and unlike X-Feather which takes ages to dry, Kiwa Guro dries really quickly and will not smear when dry. The particles suspended in the ink give it some lubrication (or maybe it has oils in it like some Sailor Jentle inks) so it's really smooth to write wit like Aurora Black is. It's pretty waterproof. Not sure if it's bulletproof like Noodler's inks. It seems pretty permanent but I haven't tried bleach etc. It's certainly completely resistant to water. It's more expensive than Noodlers or Herbin but you get what you pay for. It's about the same or cheaper than Aurora and in my opinion a much better ink.

Good quality item but as some of you may know it doesn't hold very much ink. That would be the only negative to this converter.

Pigmented Ink(50ml)
I’ve been using Seiboku in my Pilot 823 with medium nib for a couple weeks now. At long last I’ve found MY ink. I use it on HP premium 32 pound paper and the shading this ink gives is magnificent. I love that it is waterproof (I tested) and also lightfast. The ink flows smooth and wet and the color is terrific - a nice, slightly darker blue with a bit of teal. Pen chalet has the best price on Sailor pigmented inks. I liked this Seiboku so much I ordered three bottles and then a bottle of souboku and Kiwaguro.

1911 Large Ringless
Beautiful pen. I have the HF nib. The pen writes really smooth on fountain pen friendly /coated paper but just beware that on cheap paper you have a graphite pencil feedback Unless you choose to smooth it out a little on mylar paper. Then it's less feedbacky.

Shikiori Four Seasons (20ml)
This ink isn't quite as dark a red as I hoped it would be, but that's probably due to monitor variations, etc. Picking colors based on what they look like online is always a bit of a risk. Still, it's a fine medium (NOT DARK) red, and is working well in my pen.

Jentle Bottled Ink(50ml)
Sailor Jentle Sky High bottled ink is a fantastic ink for fountain pens.
I do love the colour and it works pretty well with my Leonardo Momento Zero Pietra Marina fountain pen with an EF nib as well as my Vintage Aurora 88K fitted with a fine nib. Alas I read that Sailor will not produce it anymore. The shipping and delivery was perfect. Thanks Penchalet.
