Sailor Ink Studio Set 16


Sailor Ink Studio set #16 includes: 460, 760, 960, 167 and 767. 167 is very pale, almost too pale to be read, 767 is a bright Kelly green and the others are lovely classic greens. Thanks to Sakura Fountain Pen Gallery for helping me get the full set of 100 Ink Studio samples.

Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.


Dry time:

The inks took 15-30 seconds to dry.

Water resistance: Low

Feathering: None

Show through: Medium

Bleeding: None

Other properties: All five had medium shading.

On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was lots of feathering in the larger nib sizes as well as a bit of bleeding.

Comparison Swabs:


460 is similar to Robert Oster Opal Green, but is a bit warmer. 760 is close to Robert Oster Emerald. 960 is a bit cooler than Taccia Midori Green. 167 is much lighter than Robert Oster Light Green. 767 is darker than Robert Oster Green Lime. Click here to see the Sailor inks together.


Life Bank paper brings out the undertones. 167 is very pale, almost too light to read.


I used a Bond Travel Gear A5 notebook. The inks all had a wetter flow except 167 which seemed a bit dry.

Overall, all five are nice green inks, 167 is a bit too pale though. I don’t love any of them so much that I need a full bottle.
