It's reader request week! Today's reader request is Sailor Jentle Blue Black, which can be easily confused with Sailor Jentle Sei-boku, which is the pigmented blue black. Sailor Jentle Blue Black is pretty affordable at around $12 for 50ml. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Blue Black is a lovely blue black, with just a touch of grey in it.
In large swabs the ink appears much darker, with a coppery red 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 might still be able to read what it said.
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and bleeding in the larger nib sizes, M, B and Flex.
Overall, it's a great basic blue black, has a nice wet flow and is pretty affordable too.
