About the Sailor Manyo collection:

Flowers have always been a popular poetic subject dating back to ancient Japanese history. This is the theme for Sailor's Manyo bottled ink series. Based on popular flowers frequently mentioned in Japanese “Manyoshu” – an anthology of compiled ancient poems – Sailor has chosen eight dye-based ink colors to best represent this vibrant palette range.

"Manyosyu" - Collection of Ten Thousand Leaves - is the oldest (c.759) and most revered anthology of Japan's poetic compilations. Over a period of four centuries, 4,516 poems were written by every class of person ranging from Emperors to merchants and farmers. "Manyo" is an abbreviation of "Manyosyu" and its meaning indicates people of all ranks.

"Manyosyu" is often regarded in Japan as a true expression of the Japanese spirit. The themes of the poems relate to love, elegies, nature, the seasons, and so on. Flowers are especially relevant in Japanese culture and about 1,500 of the poems in "Manyosyu" cover some 160 species of plants and 50 different flowers.

Nekoyanagi...a perfect purple...

This ink is a soft, subtle shade of purple that even Prince would approve of. The ink is on the dry side, I had to add a wettener to my pen to get it to flow in that pens ebonite feed and xxf nib.
The ink doesn't feel particularly lubricated or slippery but it doesn't feel scratchy or sticky when writing either.
I initially bought samples that I shared with my family and friends...but I'm buying a bottle for myself next month!

Superior ink! Well worth the little extra. Very vibrant, quick drying. Can't ask for much more than that.

Great Ink, Great Service

This ink is beautiful. It’s pale, but not too pale for personal correspondence or journaling. I would not use it for professional correspondence because of how pale it is. My ink was sent out promptly, was carefully packaged and arrived in perfect condition.

You can’t beat the price and quality, especially if you can split with your dear pen friend. Thanks b
