It's time for the final Sailor ink for this week, Sailor Jentle Black. I love black inks-I always have at least one pen inked with a black ink. Thanks to Pen Chalet for providing a sample for review.
Black is just that-black. It is darker than some black inks I've tried, but not as dark as others.
In large swabs there is a ton of shiny black sheen. The ink drops are nothing but sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Medium-some of the ink washed away, but you would probably still be able to read what it said.
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was a little bit of feathering, and some bleeding in every nib size.
Overall, I really enjoyed this ink. The color is nice and dark, and has a wet flow. It's going on my bottle wish list because you can't have too many good black inks.
