Sailor 1911 Mid-Size Review

Sailor Pens Review

(Jeff Abbott is a frequent factor at Pen Addict. You'll find more from Jeff on the web at Draft development and Twitter.)

Back in July, I evaluated Noodler's Turquoise and emerged away with a desire to try much more blue-green inks. So, here we're — I acquired a bottle of Sailor Jentle Yama-dori on Brad's suggestion. He generally seems to understand anything or two about good inks, thus I figured i really couldn't get wrong. Turns out, i must say i enjoy blue-green inks, and I also specifically enjoy Yama-dori.

If you listen to the podcast a lot whatsoever, you'll detect a trend with Brad's ink tastes (or simply just look at the Top 5 lists) — he loves some blue-black inks. I prefer a good blue-black perfectly, however some of those have therefore near black that I don't find yourself with them very often. I prefer the flare and unique colors of some blue-blacks, but it seems like nearly all are also dark for my preferences. This is where Yama-dori comes in. It is a rather dark ink, but it is blue-green, tones beautifully, and contains a red sheen. It is a delightful ink.

From a typical ink perspective, this is an extremely well-behaved ink. It dries relatively fast (right after 5 seconds in my situation in a moderate nib), does not bleed through, does not feather much on inexpensive report rather than whatsoever on premium report, and cleans out easily. What really sets this ink aside in my situation may be the shade, shading, and complicated purple sheen. Yep, red sheen in a blue-green ink. I can't start to describe how that really works, but it is interesting to look at the pooled up ink produce a red shade in certain lights. It appears to be just as if some one blogged some lines with a medium blue-green ink and came ultimately back with a red highlighter to fill in the darker parts later on. It's unique, and I also love it.

Now, I'm not sure about you, but I don't know a lot about pheasants. I do not think I've ever before seen one out of individual. When Sailor calls this ink "copper pheasant, " I'm certainly not sure things to think because I'm not sure whether pheasants tend to be copper or not. After an instant search, I arrived regarding green pheasant that is native to Japan. Take a look at a man plumage and just take a guess at the reason why Sailor named this ink after it. Pretty apparent, correct? Dark-green, brilliant blue, and shiny red feathers.

If you like an ink that appears professional but features a distinctive color, Yama-dori is a good color and behaves really. Really, from the time I gotten this ink it is usually experienced a minumum of one pen. I adore the blue-green colors since they're brilliant when you look closely in light. Yet, it is mild and dark enough to be completely readable and expert. This has a royal, mysterious feel to it, and I also cannot get enough of it.

50 mL regarding the ink will operate $20, the regular cost the Sailor Jentle range. The container (such as the other Sailor bottles) has actually a nifty cone inset enabling that easily set up ink even if the ink amount gets somewhat reasonable. Also, Sailor gets major points in this container design since the mouth associated with the container is extra wide. It's aggravating to get a unique ink and then realize that your chosen pen is just too fat to get involved with the container. Congratulations, Sailor.
