Sailor Ink Studio 764
Leaning heavily toward green but with plenty of blue tones, Sailor Ink Studio 764 is gorgeous!
I can’t get enough of the teal green Sailor Ink Studio 764. The ink leans heavily towards the green side but still has lots of the cool blue tones that I love. Sailor Ink Studio inks comes in a 20ml glass rectangular bottle. Packaged with each bottle is a set of stickers that you can use to label your converter. This review was done with a Pilot Custom 74 F, Lamy Studio B and on Rhodia blank No.18 paper.
If you regularly read these reviews, you know that I love teal inks. It should come as no surprise, then, that 764 has caught my fancy. The ink is moderately saturated, and has a darker and more uniform appearance in a fine nib. In the broad nib, the ink starts as a spruce cerulean green. From there, it darkens to an ocean green. At its darkest, the ink is a rich peacock green. The ink produces a nice red sheen, especially on Tomoe River paper.
As is the case with most Sailor inks, 764 wrote beautifully. The ink had good flow with no feathering or bleedthrough on Rhodia paper. Dry times were a little long at 25-35 seconds. While the ink didn’t have any water resistance, clean up was very easy.
I’m a sucker for teals, but frankly I think this is a great color. The ink writes beautifully, and it even has some nice sheen. If you’re looking for a well-saturated and easy-to-read ink, this is a perfect fit!
As with any ink review, the pen, paper, and person doing the writing will influence the way the ink looks. Due to their small bottle size and large number of colors Ink Studio inks will not be available as samples. If you would like to order a bottle, please call the store at 920-997-8220.
