Sailor Jentle Sky High Review

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 Review

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
Feathering: 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!

Notes
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.
