Please welcome Brandon Postal of the blog Go With Postal as our March guest! Although his blog is only a little over a month old, it’s been buzzing with tons of great posts with lots of coverage on vintage pens.
Brandon was kind enough to let me take a peek at his current load out of pens and pencils.

Unfortunately I can’t seem to get a really great photo that shows off the incredible red sheen this ink has. It’s absolutely addictive!
Sailor Jentle Sky High
Paper: Clairefontaine 90g
Pen: Century 3776 EF/TWSBI Vac 700 w/ Knox 1.1mm Stub
Flow: Slightly Wet
Shading: SomeBleedthrough: None
Dry Times: (Long)
Cheap Paper Notes
Sky High fares well on cheap paer with minimum feathering and bleedthrough. However, cheap paer usually misses out on the best part of the ink. SHEEN!
Sailor’s Jentle Sky high is a vibrant shade of blue. Some recommend it as a cheaper alternative to Kon-Peki, but it deserves to stand on its own right due to its good behaviour, lovely colour, and amazing read sheen. Too bad the bottle makes filling larger nibbed pens impossible.
