Recently I manged to purchase a bottle of Sailors Jentle ink – purple 201 aka shigure which means rain showers. I was very pleased about this due to 1. My love of purple inks and 2.you now have to pay more money for less ink when buying this colour as its become part of the Sailor shikiori range.
Sailor Jentle - Black Ink
In owned quite a few fountain pens before I bought my first Sailor and discovered what a joy to write with they are – there is definitely something to be said for a gold nib over stainless steel. With every pen there has been a package containing cartridges of black ink. I have never used them going straight for the converter and bottled ink. However, recently I bought a pen and there was no converter – SURPRISE. A converter was ordered and while waiting I decided to use the cartridges.
