Sakura-mori Sailor Jentle Ink (2016)

In 1911, Mr. Kyugoro Sakata, an engineer from Hiroshima in Japan, was introduced to the fountain pen. Mr. Sakata was so intrigued by the design and function of the pen he decided to begin a company to craft the finest writing instruments in the world. In honor of his British friend, he chose to name the company Sailor Pen.

The Sailor Pen Company has maintained this heritage of quality and technical perfection over the years. Apart from offering very well made pens, the company has employed an ink master – pure genius who’s managed to create greates fountain pen inks ever (it’s my opinion not validated by research but shared by many of us). I would guess that during the years Sailor created approximately 600-800 inks (most of them under other names).

One of internatioonally available line of Sailor inks is Sailor Jentle line. At the moment we have two of them. The new one reintroduces colors that were missed by hundreds of geeks. I’vwe bought full line of new Jentle inks and I’ll review them all in following weeks. The inks are:

  1. Chu-shu
  2. Fuji-musume
  3. Irori
  4. Kin-mokusei
  5. Rikyu-cha
  6. Sakura-mori
  7. Waka-uguisu
  8. Yuki-akari

Today I’ll say few words about

Sakura-mori

Sakura-mori translates as cherry blossom forest, and it seems to be accurate given the soft pinkhues of this ink. The color is weakly saturated and rather inpractical. I don’t hate it but I won’t find any use for it.
