Sailor Manyo Sample (4ml)
Purchased Sakura, Ume, and Yomogi. I've only tried the Sakura so far, but I am dissapointed in this swatch as it is displayed on the chart as being pink in hue, but upon using it is orange actually. The color itself is nice (if I was aiming for orange) and the volume of ink in the sample is a good amount.

Sailor Shikiori 5th Anniversary Limited Edition Minori
Definitely worth the wait, as always Pilot did not disappoint. Nib writes as smooth as butter and the translucent colour brings magic.

Sailor USA 50 State(20ml)
I bought this because I live in Oklahoma. I was a little disappointed because I was expecting a nice purple color but it is a muddy purple and very dark. Would like to have seen better samples. I still would have purchased this ink though, after all it Sailor so it is great quality.

Sailor Christmas Tea 20ml
This ink is such a pretty color reminds me of hot apple cider (I like my tea darker). You can't go wrong with Sailor ink.

Sailor Professional Gear Slim Series
Purchased black, EF nib. Perfect for what I had in mind. I had to adjust my order several times before I was able to settle on this pen, and I don't regret it one bit. Customer service was excellent in this regard! Value is not fantastic (you mainly pay for the gold nib), but pen feels great.
-Sailor is a Japanese brand. Compared to their Western counterparts, these pens' nibs run finer. As someone who likes writing smaller, Extra Fine was perfect for me and may not have been a size I could find easily from a Western fountain pen.
-The pen is small; make sure to check all product specs before buying! I know I have small hands but when I first held the pen I was surprised. I nearly returned it but I am glad I didn't. Posting the pen gives it a more normal feeling length if that a concern. Pen Chalet offers a fair return policy if you get the pen and decide you don't like it, but make sure to check the details.
-The pen is light; the plastic body does not carry the same weight as a pen that is constructed of metal. If this matters to you, please keep that in mind. Again, check the product specs!
-Do a bit of research on the ink capacity; not necessarily of this pen specifically but of Sailor pens in general with their proprietary converters and see if it suits your needs. Some users have found the ink capacity of Sailor's pens too small. This most likely will not be an issue for me especially since I went with an Extra Fine nib, but it's worth pointing out for others.

Some additional thoughts if you are debating between this and these two other very similar pens from Sailor like I was:
Sailor 1911S: The only difference will be the shape of the pen. I settled on the Pro Gear Slim because of its flat ends; I was looking for something that would be easy to take with me in my shirt pocket and this is perfect.
Sailor 1911L OR Pro Gear (not slim): Sailor's 1911L pen or their Pro Gear pen (not to be confused with this pen, the Pro Gear Slim) are great if you want a full sized fountain pen. Soon after receiving this pen, I purchased a 1911L in silver so I could have a full sized version of this pen that wasn't too similar. The full sized pen offers a more standard size along with a nib that is a more high-end 21-karat gold as opposed to this pen's 14-karat gold.

Sailor Ink Studio(20ml)
This review is for 024, yet I’ve found all of the studio inks to be compatible with nearly all of my pens. I like the minimal branding, too. Many of my pens just don’t have good ink flow. I think they are fine for most people but I like a pen to write wet consistently. I used this ink in a fine Jowo and even with the fine line the subtle color (beyond “dark”) is visible. A green black for the most part.

Sailor Manyo (50ml)
I might be biased because I greatly enjoy grey and green and purple, and this dual-shader mixes all those together in a fun way. In general, Sailor Manyo inks may be one of the best ink values out there, and Ayame works great for me - it’s also dark enough to read easily in thinner nibs, which is important to me, as well (my handwriting tends toward the smaller side).

Sailor Shikiori Sound of Rain Collection (20ml)
Beautiful ink, darker than the sample online would suggest. A great accent color to my notes. Dries quickly and does not feather, even on cheap printer paper.

Sailor USA 50 State(20ml)
Beautiful purple blue (Colorado). Not so purple that you cannot use it for every day writing, but not so blue that it is just another boring blue to write with. Ink is smooth and a pleasure to write with. Love the shape of the bottle, I cannot wait to get every state I have ever lived in!

Sailor Manyo (50ml)
I have refilled the pen twice with this Sailor ink and I like the Manyo Kuzu color. I think the standard black ink from Mont Blanc will sit idle for a while.

Sailor Manyo Sample (4ml)
Ume is a nice, subdued burgundy type color that looks very good on paper. Sometimes it randomly writes darker than usual. I don’t know why. But the color is so nice to look at that I am just fine with that quirk. It’s a warm, interesting shade.

Sailor 1911 Standard
Beautiful pen, beautiful craftsmanship. It doesn’t write as smoothly as I had hoped, but it may be that I am still new to using fountain pens. I’d say it’s on the pricey side a bit, but I plan to keep it. Thank you!
