Customer Reviews

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!

I have tried multiple purple inks and was unsatisfied until I found this in plum. It is deep and beautiful and behaves well in Japanese F and EF nibs. The only drawback is the price.

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.

I thought it would be a bigger pen. When it is posted, it is exceptional. This is a great pen. When I buy another, it will be the bigger size.

Jentle Ink Cartridge(12pk)
Went with 12pk of carts for Blue Black instead of a sample of it, having heretofore never tried the ink. Great ink. Definitely office happy in terms of color. And handles bad paper. And has your typical awesome Sailor ink lubrication & flow, & would be hard to beat with respects to $/mL outside of Pilot Blue Black in the 350mL, although I find that one more likely to feather on the horrendous, pulpy type of papers that should come pre-shredded;) Pen Chalet shipped fast and securely. Sail on, sail on.

Pen Chalet had cheapest prices around, that I could find, even beating out directly and slowly via Japan. They shipped promptly and packaged safely. Tucked in box was a 10% coup valid for a number of weeks. More potential saving for me. Sail on, sail on.

Jentle Bottled Ink(50ml)
I love inks that are light and sheer, they can offer beautiful shading characteristics on good bright white papers. All three of the inks I've tried from this line have been worth every penny. The Apricot, Waka-Iguisu, a light olive green, and most recently the Fuji-Musume, a pale lavender shade I almost didn't buy is my new favorite. The apricot is quite light-best with medium, broad or stub nibs. I use extra fine nibs and they are readable but light. The olive and lavender offer up the best shading. The olive almost looks like two inks, a light and dark olive, stirred but not quite mixed together, a great effect, that lays down a lovely spring green color. The lavender has fantastic shading and offers up some interesting tones as it dries. Try them on white Tomoe papers to get their full effect. It's like writing with watercolors; I plan to try them out as "watercolors" on my watercolor pad in brush pens, should be great. If light or sheer colors appeal, try some samples, they won't disappoint. Good deposition, albeit light saturation, fabulous shading qualities and fast drying. One issue I have is the bottle, can be difficult to extract when ink is low, a minor thing. Kudos to Sailor and many thanks to Pen Chalet for the great prices, well packed boxes and fast delivery time!

Pigmented Ink(50ml)
I LOVE this ink! I got this because I needed a permanent ink and I hate Noodler’s after way too many bad experiences with their products. I’ve loved the other Sailor inks I’ve used and knew that this would be a quality ink. I didn’t realize it would exceed all my expectations.

What this inn can do is largely up to you and the way you use it. Using a slow hand and/or bigger nib, you can use it to redact sensitive information from documents because it will flow heavier if you give it the ability to do so. Using an extra-fine nib allows you to have precise control of ink that will not feather and will stay put. A faster hand can even yield a slight bit of shading.

The best thing: I’ve used it in a TWSBI Eco extra-fine nib and it hasn’t clogged, settled or slowed down. It is incredibly well-behaved in the pen and I’m not seeing any staining as I push the piston toward the nib as I use up the ink. It’s been in the pen for two weeks. I have some regular inks that would be dried out and clogging the nib by now that aren’t even pigmented.

I’m going to buy this in every color. I wish they’d make dark green! This is one of the best inks (and I have a TON of inks).

Great pen - as expected! Nib is perfect - up to Sailor’s usual standards. Body color is nothing like in photos in which it almost looks like a metallic black. Color is actually a medium/dark industrial flat grey. Very nice!

Professional Gear II Realo
Having watched a few glowing reviews about the Realo, I knew I had to order one. The reviews were dead on. This pen is not too light or too heavy, the balance is excellent, the exposed ink window very handy, the nib is beautiful, and the writing is smooth with just a hint of tooth. Love this pen. It is vying with my Visconti Homo Sapiens to be my go-to writer. The body could be a bit short for some with larger hands, but I'm one who likes to write posted so it's just fine with me.

1911 Large
I was initially disappointed, greeting the pen out of the box. I could see nothing Large about it. Its Standard sibling must be slim indeed. But I got over that quickly enough. The writing experience is in a league of its own.

Professional Gear II Realo
I have quite a few Japanese pens - Pilot, Namiki, Platinum and Sailor but this Sailor Pro Gear Realo II is really nice. The HM nib is wonderful - smooth and more flexible than I anticipated. It’s a smaller pen for me but fits in my hand and in a shirt pocket perfectly. This will be a daily writer for me. -K
