Toki no haneiro

Tsutaya opened up a branch at Ginza Six and released a set of three limited inks just after I left Japan last year. Needless to say they were gone in a flash and I’ve only managed to get samples of the inks through a Taiwanese FP group.

Very sad. The pink in this set is my favourite pink from Sailor so far and I don’t have a bottle of it 😭

It didn’t look that special at first glance, but the more I looked at it the more I realised how different it was to just about every other pale Sailor pink there is. This is entirely because it has a dark undertone rather than the yellow you normally get with pinks in this hue, and it gives this ink, especially when written, a barely discernible dark outline that somehow really sharpens its look on the page.

Onto the swatches, clockwise from top left: 52g Tomoe River, Midori, Graphilo, Paperholic.

If anyone reading has a bottle of this that they don’t love, please get in touch 🙏🙏🙏

As you can tell I’m quite one dimensional in my ink collecting, I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions 😄
