Sailor Reviews

Jentle Bottled Ink(50ml)
This, in the swatch and in the bottle is blue, very deep blue. I admit that my writing is not on expensive paper, but when this dries, the blue yields to that indigo/violet place and has become an inspiration for me to try rainbow writing. Letters answered, each letter done in a different color of ink. It's a gift, not only to the receiver of the letter, but to all the people who handle the letters from my place to yours.

Sailor inks just might be the best overall ink. It flows well and never gives me any issues with any of the pens I use in it.

A beautiful pen in the Fresca -- very much a robin's egg blue and available only in North America. The music nib is superb. This is an outstanding fountain pen.

This pen is lovely in the Fresca. The nib is smooth as butter and Pen Chalet customer service is fabulous. I like this pen so much I got it in both sizes -- the gold nibs are responsive and top quality, as is typical of Sailor fountain pens.

Pen wrote great out of the box and is beautiful to look at. It's definitely a Japanese fine, and even then seems like it might even be close to a Japanese extra fine, and it doesn't write quite as wet as I'd like, but that should be easy enough to adjust. Overall, very happy with the performance and aesthetics of the pen Will probably get another Sailor in the future, but with a broader nib.

This pen is lighter than any other fountain pen I own of this quality. I generally prefer pens with a bit more heft. That being said, the pen is a gorgeous object. The clear demonstrator barrel, with gold accents, is stunning, and the nib offers one of the smoothest writing experiences I've had -- and I own a LOT of fine writing tools. It left me looking for a pen just like it, but a tad bigger and with a bit more heft. The music nib is not like the Noodler's music nib, vis a vis three tined but it writes like a dream!

Jentle Bottled Ink(50ml)
What a beautiful blue ink! I am using it in an extra fine point so I don't get much shading but the color stands out so well. This is the first Sailor Jentle ink I have purchased and I am certain it won't be the last. It doesn't bleed or show through and no feathering. Also, Pen Chalet's ink program is great!

This review pertains to the Winter model, which was listed as White Lame - Medium nib in the selection box. Much has been written about the excellent quality of Sailor pens, and this one is no exception. It wrote perfectly right out of the box, with the included blue-black cartridge. The finish is beautiful, with flecks of pink interspersed in the nearly translucent white resin.

The pen is a sought out pen after a lot of searching and out of stock status. I found it with the help of pen chalet. The pen is an absolute stunner. There is no other fountain pen this slim smooth wet writer out there. Service is top notch from pen chalet. I am out of words to describe the length they went to help me find one and ship out so that I could surprise my wife who had liked this at a store some time back. She was absolutely thrilled and we had a magical and happy anniversary. Thank u very much pen chalet and sailor.
