Sailor Jentle Epinard


Sailor Jentle Epinard is one of the six original Sailor Jentle inks that were re-released in 2017. I bought my bottle from Anderson Pens

The bottle is 50ml of ink. I still don't really like the bottle. I've discussed why in my other Sailor Jentle reviews. 

The color: 

Epinard is a spinach green color, with a red/brown sheen that shows on certain papers.

Rhodia paper: no feathering, bleeding, or sheen, with medium show through. There is a little bit of shading.

Tomoe River paper: no bleeding, or feathering, and medium show through (I did mess up and drop some ink on the back side accidentally).  The sheen on this ink is amazing. It's a fabulous red/brown that you can see on all nib sizes, but really shines through on the flex nib.

Leuchtturm 1917 paper: no feathering, bleeding, and medium show through. You can't see any of the sheen.

Baron Fig Askew paper: There is low show through, no bleeding, and no feathering. You can't see any of the sheen. 

Similar inks...

The closest ink to Epinard is Sailor Jentle Tokiwa-Matsu, which has a little bit deeper sheen than Epinard. Seasonally, I think this ink would work well for winter. 

On the left is Sailor Jentle Epinard, and on the right is Sailor Jentle Tokiwa-Matsu. There are very similar. 


For the quote I used the Dingbats notebook that I reviewed here, and a Pilot Vanishing Point Raden, medium nib. There was a little bit of feathering. I'm amazed at how different the ink looks on this paper versus how it looks on Tomoe River paper. 

Overall, I love this ink on Tomoe River paper. On other papers it isn't anything to go crazy over.
