Pen, Ink & Paper P0rn: Waterman Music Nib & Sailor Jentle Sky High Sheen

If you haven't already noticed, I like flex nibs. Especially Waterman flex nibs. Especially this Waterman music flex nib. I also really like Sailor Jentle Sky High ink and I'm really bummed that Sailor discontinued it (and I am skeptical whether Souten will be a replacement for it. Le sigh.).

I love this nib because it really highlights the shading and sheen of just about every ink I've ever used with it so far. Also: crazy delectable ink pooling.

Check out my review of the music nib here, as well as my music nib post if you're curious about music nibs!

I too love Sky High. The base color isn't the same, but there's a LE Kobe Ink (made by Sailor) called Gogh Cobalt that kind of evokes a similar spirit to Sky High. Moreso than Souten, I think.

That looks very dark for Sky High--I love it. Maybe it's the music nib? Do you find it to look very different with a narrower nib (I had it in my Safari with a 1.1mm nib).

That is some beautiful ink and nibbage! Thanks so much Azizah (and happy birthday!)

Ha.. turns out *someone* no names mentioned... inked my pen with what they thought was Sky High... it's just Sailor Blue in the end. Good eye. Sorry for the misrepresentation!
