Limited Release Of Old Sailor Inks02/23/2016
It was mentioned today at FPN that in March there will be a limited reissue of eight discontinued Sailor inks. I have used three and like them all.
Phthalo sent samples of Sakura-Mori and Waka-Uguisu a number of years ago. Those samples fall into the rationed ink category and get used at the rate of mere drops on special occasions. Sakura-Mori is quite pale, but a pretty color. Waka-Uguisu is very similar to Rohrer & Klingner Alt-Goldgrun. Jet Pens sent a bottle of Yaki-Akari in 2010 that has been mentioned in a number of posts as a lovely ink from a wide nib in a clear demonstrator. That would hold true for the other inks as well.
In my opinion, Sailor has made too little effort to supply the U.S. market with its excellent ink so I don’t expect to see it flooding local shelves. If any of the colors appeal to you, grab it should you get the opportunity. Sailor isn’t likely to disappoint.
