The first of this block of four ink reviews has no special backstory. I saw other reviews for Sailor Jentle Apricot, and thought I would give it a try. It cost £10.80 from a UK supplier, which for 50ml I would consider “mid price”.
Things have been a little quiet here recently (I won’t bore you with any excuses) but four ink reviews should appear in the very near future. The writing tests are done, as well as the photos, I just need to scan in the samples and write up the text. This is the first time I’ve tried running four tests at once, and you will see that the inks are all in the orange/red area. Next time around I plan to do five at once!
Better late than never I suppose, but my first fountain pen review is unlikely to be typical of the ones to come. Unlike every other fountain pen I have, I didn’t have to pay for this one, and it’s for a type of pen that until recently I didn’t know even existed – a retractable fountain pen. Apparently the Pilot Capless (or Vanishing Point) Fountain Pen has been around since before I was born, but I until I got back into fountain pens last Summer I had never heard of it. However, once I started listening to a certain Podcast I couldn’t really avoid it.
