Sailor Inks Being Discontinued + New Sailor Inks Coming

IMG_9180

Sailor is clearing the way for their new line of inks by discontinuing some of their old ones. Their Jentle line of inks has been always been very popular here at the shop, and I’m sorry to see them go – especially their Sky High and Grenade. We’re trying to get a few more in from our distributor, but I’m afraid once they’re gone, they’re gone. If you have a real liking for any of the discontinued inks, it may be a good idea to get them now while they’re still in stock.

The following inks are being discontinued:

Epinard
Grenade
Sky High
Ultramarine
Peche
Apricot

The Jentle Black, Blue and Blue-black are not being discontinued.

If you are unable to come into the shop but would still like to get some before we’re sold out, you can purchase online and select “in-store pick up” to avoid shipping charges, and ensure that your bottles are safe.

The good news is that Sailor’s new line, which has been anticipated for a while, is coming out soon. The line is actually a re-release of inks from years ago, so I think Sailor is just freshening up its line with new inks. Some of the colours will be quite similar to the discontinued Jentle line, but I don’t think exactly the same. From the reviews I’ve read online, some of these inks will be more saturated and have a bit of sheen to them.

As of now, we’re expecting them in maybe a month, but we don’t have a firm timeline yet. Stay tuned!

      Sky High is one of the first inks I loved when I started using fountain pens and bottled inks! I don’t think they’re just renaming their inks – I’ve seen some reviews on FPN and they seem similar (there will be a burgundy reddish ink to replace the Grenade), but they won’t be EXACTLY the same. But I haven’t used them yet, so time will tell!

        I love Sky High too, but fortunately Souten looks like it’ll be a fairly good substitute! Oku-yama is very similar to Grenade, and Tokiwa-Matsu looks like a lighter version of Epinard.

        I find Noodler’s Apache Sunset makes for a pretty reasonable Apricot lookalike, if with more extreme shading.

Say hello!
