Todays review is the third in my Sailor ink mini series and it’s a good one because I think the Sailor Kin-Mokusei is my favourite Sailor ink so far. I was intrigued by an orange Sailor ink because of the adoration that Sailor Apricot received and thought that Kin-Mokusei could be overshadowed. I have never used Sailor Apricot so cannot offer any sort of comparison but the Kin-Mokusei is a very very good orange ink.
Kin-Mokusei is a light orange ink that really reminds me of a summers sunset. It has some lovely shading adding something special to this ink. The lighter shades of this ink show yellow tones that give this ink its light colour.
Before I started using this ink I was concerned it wasn't going to be an ink for writing; that the light colour would be more pretty than practical. I was wrong. This ink is very light but it’s perfectly legible in my notebooks and I haven’t struggled at all. In my journaling it looks great and for long form writing it makes a really nice change adding a great pop of colour.
Sailor’s Kin-Mokusei was a happy surprise. I tend to use dark ink colours so orange inks aren’t normally a colour I pay too much attention to. I am really pleased that I gave this colour a punt because it’s lovely. I think some time in the near future I will be buying a full bottle.
