Left to right: 867, 967, 370, 670 and 770.

Writing 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 20-30 seconds to dry.

Water resistance: Low

Feathering: None

Show through: Medium

Bleeding: None

Other properties: All five had medium shading, 867, 967, 670 and 770 have low sheen.

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:


867 is similar to Robert Oster Jade. 967 is close to Robert Oster Forest Green. 370 is a bit lighter than Birmingham Arugula. 670 is much lighter than Platinum Classic Citrus Black. 770 is lighter than Pilot Iroshizuku Daikokuten. Click here to see the Sailor inks together.


Life Bank paper brings out the undertones. 670 looks more mustard than it does on other papers.


I used a Tomoe River paper notebook. The inks all had a wetter flow.

Overall, all five are lovely inks, but I think 770 is my favorite. It’s a bright yellow, but still dark enough to read.
