    Default Diamine Sargasso Sea vs. Sailor Shikiori Yonaga

    My quest for an ink that works well with my Montblanc 146 flex concluded with Diamine Sargasso Sea, and Sailor Shikiori Yonaga. I wanted to try Sailor Shikiori Yonaga because it's described as a lubricating ink.

    Both of them flowed better than Diamine Inkvent Polar Glow did through that nib. And while I love Dominant Industry Milky Way Blue's red sheen, it doesn't flow as well due to the particles that make it sheen.

    The sapphire tinge of Diamine Sargasso Sea (top) tipped the scales in its favor.

    Sailor Shikiori Yonaga is wetter, but looks more like a blue-black.

    Sargasso Sea it is.

    It's going to take me a while to master the 146 flex nib.

    Thanks. I'm assuming Diamine Sargasso Sea is on the top

    It is. Sorry for not clarifying that.
