Very quick service. Yet, I have to return my ballpoint refills because they do not fit my pen.

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.

Pigmented Ink(50ml)
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).

Professional Gear Graphite Lighthouse
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

I love this pen! It’s a beautiful color (Stormy Sea) and it writes very well. The nib is very smooth; the medium fine is exactly the type I like to write with.

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!

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.
