Sailor Jentle Rikyu-Cha


This new set of Sailor Jentle Inks is really good, but this is my favorite. Rikyu-cha is a pretty odd color. I totally admit that. I really like weird colors. I thought it reminded me of Stipula's Musk Green, but it's been a while and those two aren't alike at all(see below). It's a green, but it's a brown green with a little bit of blue in there. Cool.

Rikyu-Cha flows really well, dries pretty quickly, and performs pretty well on copy paper. Mostly, though, this ink is just cool. It even changes color as you write with it.

Thanks go to Anderson Pens for sending this ink sample out for review!

Written Review

Close Ups

There's just a smidge of sheen in this ink, but it's not something you're likely to see.

Copy Paper Test

There's a little bit of bleed and a little bit of feathering on the copy paper, but it's not too bad. I wish it were a little better, but it's fine.

Other Papers...
This first picture is of a Pen Habit Currently Inked Journal. It's a wheat paper of some sort, I think.

These next couple are on Tomoe River paper. You can see the color is much different on this paper. It doesn't look like this anywhere else, but it does let you see the slight sheen you get from this ink.
