L’Amant – Bung Box (Sailor)

Sailor is my favourite ink maker. Sadly their most interesting inks are available only in Japan or from internet retailers. There are few japanese shops famous for their wide and interesting range of Sailor inks. One of most well-known is Bung Box. A lot of people were taken by interesting bottles and intriguing colors. It seems however that recently many ink enthusiasts started to shy away from this line since Bung Box inks became much more bitterly expensive than other Sailor inks.

The line consists of quite a few colors. My list is incomplete and most of the names aren’t translated well. If you have full list of BB inks and/or could gheklp me with correcting english names, help me sort this out  :)

  1. 4B Blue/Black
  2. BB Espresso
  3. Dandyism
  4. Emerald
  5. Enshu Black
  6. Fresh Oranges of Lake Hamana
  7. Fuyiyama Blue
  8. Hamanako Eel
  9. Imperial Purple
  10. Ink of the Witch
  11. L’Amant
  12. Luminous Green
  13. Melancholic Gray
  14. Mocha
  15. Music Black
  16. Nostalgia
  17. Oamezaki Sunset
  18. Omaezaki
  19. Omaezaki Blue
  20. Orange
  21. Pink
  22. Ruby
  23. Sapphire
  24. Silent Night
  25. Soleil
  26. Tears of Clown

Before I write few words about the ink allow me to start by saying thank you Tinnjapan for sending me samples of different Sailor inks.

L’Amant is amazing. Seriously. It’s simply stunning.
