You don’t have to be a princess to love Sailor Peche.
Sailor Peche is a delicate rose pink that is part of Sailor’s reissue of the Jentle inks. It comes in their standard 50ml glass bottle that has a plastic filling reservoir. The reservoir can be taken out if you need a little more room to fit a pen with a bigger nib or larger section. This review was done with the Sailor Pro Gear F, Lamy Safari B and on Rhodia blank No. 18 paper.
Peche is a low saturated ink and has a wispy ephemeral look to it. The ink shades a good bit in both a fine and broad nib. The lightest areas are a blush that shades into a more traditional rose pink. The darkest shade this ink can produce is a bubblegum pink, and even that is fairly light.
Like other Sailor inks, Peche has desirable properties. The flow is good with no feathering or bleedthrough on Rhodia paper. As stated, the ink has low saturation and good dry times around 20-30 seconds. Shading is moderate to high, but the overall appearance of the ink is still light. There is no water resistance, but clean up is easy.
There is something endearing about Peche, although it is an ink that could raise a few eyebrows at work. It is on the verge of being too light, but even in a fine nib, I didn’t have a problem with legibility. It’s a fun color for journaling and even drawing.
As with any ink review, the pen, paper, and person doing the writing will influence the way the ink looks. If you’re not sure about a color, try a sample to see if it’s the one for you.
