    Post [Review] Sailor Jentle Miruai Writing Samples



    Flow was very very wet.
    No hard starts.
    Cleaning difficult was medium (I was expecting much worse)

    Saturation: Leuchtturm > Rhodia > TR = Midori > Generic
    Brightness: Leuchtturm = Rhodida = Generic > Midori > TR
    Cool to Warm tone
    Rhodia -> TR -> Generic -> Midori = Leuchtturm

    This green was so dark that it's basically black. Would you use it in an office setting though? Or is this still "not close enough to black"?

    Great review! That seems about dark enough for my work notes (they're for me only but I still would rather stick to nearly black or dark blues).

    This will have the added feature of sheening under bright lights! =D

    One of the best reviews I've seen for a while. Compact enough not to be a chore to look at, informative enough to make an educated decision. That said, not really my colour - prefer tokiwa matsu - but very interesting nonetheless.

    Tokiwamatsu was actually the first one I did! Older format review though so didn't post on here haha I agree it's a beautiful ink!

    Looks like Diamine Classic Green with a touch of grey.

    Lovely green color and an enjoyable review. Thank you.

    Among my favourite Sailor inks.
    I am glad that I managed to get two old 50ml Four Seasons jentle bottles before Sailor discontinued them and went with 20ml shikiori bottles for almost the same price.
