My Daily April 12, 2019
Reviewer: Marshall from Lambton County  
This is my absolute go-to favourite everyday writing ink. I use it for my work and general writing and it behaves well even on copy paper. I usually have it in a Lamy Safari with a 1.1mm stub nib. It is a deep blue-green teal that sheens vivid red when used with a wet nib and on good paper - Clairefontaine/Rhodia or similar. It has a relatively quick dry time for daily writing (and I am left-handed, so if it can hold up to this, it's decent) or drawing. I normally bought it in the 50mL bottles under Sailor Jentle Four Seasons Yama-Dori, but unfortunately they were discontinued and replaced with a smaller 20mL bottle under the Shikiori name. But it is better than them discontinuing the ink altogether. This is a must-buy!

Beautiful and well-behaved October 3, 2018
Reviewer: Kateryn from Winnipeg  
I got this on a whim. I'm not a huge turquoise/teal fan and I already have a bottle of Lamy Petrol so I felt like I had the "teal with a red sheen" ink checked. I was getting a bunch of samples so I figured I'd just add this one since it was so popular. Now I see why! It's a beautiful medium/dark teal (not as dark as Lamy Petrol), it flows well out of fine nibs, it dries quickly, it shades, it sheens - seriously, what's not to love?!
Full bottle in my cart next time I place an order, that's for sure.

A Fan Favorite November 18, 2015
Reviewer: James C from Ontario  
This is one of my favourite inks now, and favourite of many other fountain pen users.  This is a teal/dark teal colour, with a little red sheen on it.  It shades well, and behaves well even on copy paper.

It looks a little close to Iroshizuku Tsuki-yo, which is more blue teal, or Yama-Dori is more green teal.

Highly recommended, will probably be one of my next bottles purchased, along with some other Sailor Jentle inks.

Teal ... June 15, 2015
Reviewer: krista from calgary, AB Canada  
I bought this as a sample as I don't have any Sailor inks in my collection--and was looking for a blue, that wasn't Blue.  This teal tends toward greenish and looks beautiful against crisp white paper.  Color is saturated and behaves on cheap paper--there isn't much shading with a fine nib TWSBI 580 but it might perform with a medium

Interesting blue colour April 10, 2015
Reviewer: Sabrina Tam from Markham, ON Canada  
I love love love this blue colour. Blue ink in general tends to bore me, but this one is an interesting  blue colour that captivates my interest. It's dark enough to be formal without being boring.
