Let’s take a look at Sailor Jentle Tokiwa-matsu, aka Pine Green. I was so sad to hear that Sailor Jentle inks will be moving from the standard 50ml bottle to the smaller 20ml bottle. There are a few 50ml bottles available, but not many. I was able to find some at Goldspot Pens, but I’ve had my bottle for a few years. If this color interests you, I would suggest snagging some before all of the 50ml bottles sell out.
Tokiwa-matsu is a medium olive green.
In large swabs you can see the dark 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: Low
Show through: High
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and bleeding in most nib sizes, so it’s not an ink I would recommend for cheap paper. I did not see any sheen on this cheap paper.
I used a Pelikan M805 Ocean Swirl with a broad nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink has a wetter than average flow.
Overall, it’s another great ink from Sailor. It’s very similar to Sailor Jentle Epinard, so I would suggest getting one or the other, you probably don’t need both.
