Sailor Shikiori Four Seasons Cartridge(3pk)
Sometimes it’s nice to have a cartridge on hand when there’s a proprietary converter to clean. I flush these after use and refill them with bottled ink, too. The plastic snap case is handy for traveling. I’ve used the cartridges in my Sailor Fude pen for sketching and the follow and dry time are just right. A well-behaved ink in a practical package.

Sailor Manyo (50ml)
I've purchased several Sailor Manyo inks. Haha & Nekoyanagi are both are nice with crazy color changes but can be a little too light depending on the pen. I like both a lot but I don't immediately reach for them like I do Kuzu - also from this line.

Sailor 1911 Pen of the Year 2021 Standard
I love sparkly pens, and this one is subtly sparkly. I expected it to be positively glittery, but I'm also very pleased with a pen that is more tasteful. The cranberry color is quite deep. It's yet another Sailor pen of excellent quality.

Sailor Pigmented Sample (4ml)
The Sailor pigmented inks, all three of Kiwa Giro, Sei-boku and Sou-boku are all absolutely excellent. The provide good lubrication and the nib really glides. Kiwa Giro and Sou-boku are great on all papers. Sei-boku can bleed on really cheap paper, copy paper is fine but if you get absolute garbage, you will get some feathering and bleeding. Lovely colors.

Don't be scared about these being pigmented inks. I found them really easy to clean. Just as easy as saturated dye based inks. No hard starts or any problems whatsoever. Just remember to clean your pens every 3-4 fills if you aren't changing colors and really well if you are changing colors.

Sailor Shikiori Four Seasons Sample(4ml)
Both the blue black and the black are excellent inks. They seem to be iron gall inks even though they are listed as dye inks. They certainly have the superior behavior of iron gall inks on all paper. They seem fairly gentle iron galls, if they are iron galls. Absolutely no feathering or bleed. Pretty fine lines. Pretty waterproof. I haven't tested this but I'm told it's not completely light fast so if you plan to keep paper on which you have written in the sun, use Platinum Black instead. The Blue-Black is a fantastic blue-black. The black is not quite as black as some blacks but still plenty black. Highly recommended. Better performers than even Noodler's Black on cheap paper. But unlike Noodler's Black, these dry quickly on high quality paper and are really easy to clean. Very underrated inks. Excellent daily drivers. No real downsides.

Sailor Shikiori Four Seasons (20ml)
Sailor Shikiori Doyou is an excellent ink. It's a very dark brown, almost black. Can pass for a black in a setting where blue or black is required. Really excellent performer in every paper and pen I've tried. Perfect wetness, not too wet, not too dry. It has another really interesting quality in that it seems to not just not stain but actually somehow removes stains from demonstrators that were previously stained. Easy to clean. One of my favorites. Wish it was a bit cheaper and came in larger bottles but you get what you pay for I guess. Given Sailor's propensity to discontinue inks, I bought two bottles, one for current usage and one as a backup.

Sailor Shikiori Four Seasons Cartridge(3pk)
I got these cartridges in several different colors. They have all performed well. I was surprised that they fit in my Platinum Preppys without a converter - I thought Platinumhad its own proprietary nibs and cartridges.

Sailor 1911 Standard Wicked Witch of the West
I am not much into purple pens, but I'm glad I gambled and purchased the pen. The pen looks much nicer in person than it does in the photograph. I ordered mine with a medium fine point nib.
I am a little disappointed with the consistency of Sailor nibs.
Eventually, I am going to venture out of my comfort shell and order a broad to a music nib.

Sailor Pigmented Ink(50ml)
I ended up purchasing this ink from an empty bottle purchase from Pen Chalet. There was just enough ink left in the bottle to see the color. That was all it took. I could tell it was a shade of blue that I wanted in my ink inventory.
If you are looking for a nice deep blue ink with good flow, then I can definitely recommend this ink.

Sailor 1911 Standard Loch Ness Monster
Who doesn't want to find the Loch Ness? I ordered my Loch Ness with a medium fine point nib. The medium-fine nib seems to be a good balance between a fine & medium point nib while being a smoother writing nib than the fine point. I do like the way this nib writes.
Pen Chalet does a great job of getting the orders out in a timely fashion.
Also, I have the Wicked Witch of the West (both pens purchased from Pen Chalet) with a medium fine point nib.
I rated a few of the items a 4 due to the consistency of between the nibs. The Wicked is a smoother writer. I'm too much of a fountain pen newbie to know how to tweak the nibs.
It won't keep me from ordering Sailors from Pen Chalet.

Sailor Shikiori Four Seasons Cartridge(3pk)
Perfect little cartridges for your Sailor pens! I love that they have cartridges for their inks that aren't just standard black and blue. The Shikiori line is wonderful, though of course this isn't the most economical way to buy ink.

Sailor 1911 Standard Loch Ness Monster
This has to be one of the best writing Sailor pens that I have. The description states the trim is "black, ion-plated band, trim rings and clip". To me it's not really black. I would call it a dark grey. I prefer this color and matte finish over the highly polished chrome and gold. The pen has a nice feel to it and has a nice balance in my hand whether or not I post the cap. The pen feels so light, you think it might float out of your hand.
This is the first time I ordered the medium fine nib and I think this will be my go to nib for Sailor pens.
Eventually I would like to learn to use Sailor's Music or Zoom nib.
