Marvelous pen. Love the balance, the feel of it and the nib is a wonderful writer right out of the box.

Jentle Bottled Ink(50ml)
This is my "go-to" bottle ink. I have several colors in collection, very like how it flows on the paper.

Jentle Bottled Ink(50ml)
Had to pick up a few bottles before the new ones were launched (more economical than the 20ml bottles). Love this brand. Rikyu-cha, Tokiwa-matsu, and Miruai are my favorites (all green, but so different from each other!). I enjoy the plastic insert which aids in filling.

Glad there is a place that sells these refills for a reasonable price. I'm going to use it with my Sailor ProColor 500 Stardust pen. I hear that Sheaffer K refills have a similar form factor but I have not tried them yet. I think Monteverde K refills would also work with this pen. Time will tell. Not going to try just yet.

Shikiori Four Seasons (20ml)
The Shikiori Four Seasons ink is sublime.
I purchased both the "Summer Night Bonfire" and the "Long Autumn Evening." The Summer Night Bonfire is a striking, deep red ink that has darker shades mixed with lighter shades of red so that it creates a bit of color variation in the line. I've used it in a Lamy Safari, fine nib, and the line is nice and heavy with little feathering and no bleed through. The Long Autumn evening is a dark blue, almost navy blue color with a bit more drying time than the red. I've used this ink in my TWSBI Precision, fine nib. The inks both flow well with excellent smoothness, no bleeding in my Field Notes notebooks, nor on my Rhodia Dot Pad. My only regret is that these inks only come in 20ml bottles. I'll use them often and replenish as soon as they're gone!

Jentle Bottled Ink(50ml)
Awesome ink. I love the color and it dries very quickly. Only con is that there is a very slight smell; I don’t mind it but I’m also using an EF nib.

Jentle Bottled Ink(50ml)
I have Tokiwa-Matsu and Yama-Dori. Tokiwa-Matsu is a nice evergreen color, that occasionally sheens red. Yama-Dori is a nice teal that often sheens red. Both inks smell pretty unsavory, but they behave really well on most papers. I’ve had no issues cleaning them out. The bottle is pretty poor, though. Anything that’s not a cartridge/converter pen is going to struggle.

1911 Standard
I love this pen, especially the color (yellow). It is a medium-sized pen, so I write with the cap posted. It fits well in my hand that way. The gold nib (B) writes like a dream right out of the box. The pen seems well constructed, and I have no reservations about recommending it. I think I could be perfectly happy with this as my only fountain pen, if I could have only one.

Professional Gear Slim Purple Cosmos
My 1st Sailor, I have been wishing on one for years and this one is a beautiful pen. I do honestly have pens that write better but I love the look I have an issue with the feel of the Section, it just does not fit my personal grip all that well. I still use it a lot anyways hoping my fingers will adjust to it because it is just so pretty.

Jentle
The only detraction I can make about this product is the ink filler insert. Just throw it away. They require too many attempts to fill a pen. Get a pack of empty sample vials, a syringe, and ablunt needle. Use the bottle and when you get near the end just fill up from the vial. Do not stack the bottles. Other than that it is a solid ink. Seems to dry about like most other inks, have had no problems in my pens, and there is an excellent selection of colors.

Jentle Bottled Ink(50ml)
What can really be said about Sailor Jentle that hasn't already been said. It's a staple in my rotation, Performs well in all of my nibs, flow is excellent and the color and shading is great. This is one of the inks I go back to often in my journaling and letter writing. Great ink at a good price.

1911 Large
Excellent shopping experience! This my 2nd Sailor Pen and I am loving it! The extra-fine nib was just what I was looking for, perfect for small notes and the 1911 Large size is very comfortable in my hand to use. Can be absolutely recommended!

Jentle Bottled Ink(50ml)
Never thought I'd say something like this, but I love this ink. The flow and feel of it in my fine-point Sailor 1911 Large is just great--smooth and consistent. And the color is not a common black, or ordinary blue, but an interesting combo of blue and black with maybe a hint of dark green. It's like a deep ocean color--just the thing for a Sailor. (You gotta admit that's clever.)

1911 Large
This is a really nice pen and the first somewhat expensive fountain pen I've ever bought. Beautiful looks. Solid, quality construction feels good in the hand. Fine-point nib gives a nicely variable line with just-right feedback on paper. I do wish it were a little heavier for the price, however. Service from Pen Chalet was awesome. Overall, I'm very happy with this product and business.

Professional Gear Slim Purple Cosmos
my first sailor pen and i'm very pleased with it. i have been trying various pens and this pen is a nice addition to my shirt pocket. the purple sparkle is really nice and the nib, while it needs a slight tuning, feels much better than a steel nib. my only down points are the uncapped length is a bit short for me and i would prefer a physically larger nib. these are just personal preferences and detract in no way from the pen. i would certainly keep sailor on my buy list.

Lovely ink with interesting teal colour. Needs to be well-lit to really shine as tends to look a little like dark green in dim light.
Fantastic fast international delivery from Pen Chalet to UK, would definitely use again.

Pro Gear Ocean
Like all my Sailor's the nib is wonderful (I got a Fine-Medium). The color is unique as well. Very happy with the pen, but then like McDonald's there is a consistency that assures if you have 1 of these and like it, you will like this as well. (I say this in a GOOD way!). As to Pen Chalet itself, this was my first order from you. I was VERY pleased. Everyone else was out of stock on this. You not only had it in stock, PC was swift in answering questions and sending the order out. I am exceptionally pleased with PC and will be ordering in the future!
