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.

It is a very beautiful pen. My only deception is that the nib does not have the green that shows on the picture, but overall still a awesome pen.

Pigmented Ink Cartridge(12pk)
I wanted a well behaved pigmented ink and this one seemed to fit the bill. I just wanted to have it around as an "if I need it" ink. That was the wrong perception of this ink. I absolutely love this ink. I behaves well, it's a lovely shade of blue that shades very well. It behaves on every paper I've used from Tomoe River to the junkiest of junky copy paper. If you are looking for a more work friendly but, still has character ink, this is the one!

1911 4am Standard
Very attractive pen! I really like the dark accent color on the trim rings and clip. The fit and finish of the pen is excellent. When unposted, I find it to be a little smallish in the hand. Posted, it's perfect and well balanced.I'm a big fan of Japanese nibs (pilot, in particular) but this one provides a little more feedback/toothiness than I'm used to. At first, the ink flow was terrible ... was experiencing a lot of false starts/railroading. So, I decided that maybe a good flush would help to improve ink flow. Sure enough, it helped significantly. I still find it not to be as smooth or consistent as the Pilot fines I'm used to, but given this is my first experience with Sailor nibs, I want to give some time.

Pigmented Sample (4ml)
This ink is awesome! I'm only allowed to use blue ink at work, so I decided to give this a try since none of my other blue inks are particularly friendly to bad paper. I use it in a TWSBI Eco with an EF nib, and it flows beautifully! It doesn't feather or bleed on the terrible copy paper we use at my workplace, and even shows a touch of shading on that paper!

This is my first Sailor. It arrived on time and it is a beautiful pen. It fits the hand well both posted and unposted. Filing it was easy and worth the extra to have the piston filler; the view window is a great feature.

I selected the fine nib, and it wrote very well from the start. I have use this for a week and it was first choice. Wish I had purchased it sooner.

Jentle Bottled Ink(50ml)
A nice, rich, saturated green. I’ll be using this ink often. F.Y.I. - a “fresh” spinach color - It does not match the 1911 Ringless Epinard in case you’re wondering.

Professional Gear Realo
I purchased my new Sailor pen after receiving extremely helpful advice and assistance from Ron at Pen Chalet. He was very knowledgeable about this product and other comparable ones. My new pen has exceeded my expectations regarding weight, balance, and grip in my small hand as well as the smoothness of Sailor's fine nib. Although I'm somewhat of a pen aficionado, this pen writes as well as well as, actually better than, more expensive fountain pens by the usual suspects. In my humble opinion, you can't beat the quality of Sailor fountain pens and this one in particular, and the customer service at Pen Chalet. Paul M.

Standard 1911 Stormy Sea
Yet another wonderful pen from sailor. My first Regular sized body and 14K nib (SF) vs. 21K in a Sailor. Ever so slightly stiffer. I love this nib! Regular size fits my shirt pocket perfectly and then posts to a nice length. Love the color! as well!

Jentle Sample(4ml)
Sailor Jentle inks work absolutely perfectly in any fountain pen of choice. They are highly pigmented and have a consistent flow. I rarely, if ever, have concerns with this ink smearing. Sailor really takes the time to ensure they create vivid colours. This line contains my favourite "perfect pink" shade of ink, their Peche, which has the perfect balance of blue undertones, and a lack of florescent appearance, making the ink easy to read when utilized.

As usual with Sailor the finish and nib are superb. I chose the silver trim and the pen is sharp looking without being ostentatious.
