This is a review for one of my "professional inks," that I regularly use at the office, in court, or anywhere else that I don't want to turn heads. Not that this ink won't turn the head of anyone who's paying attention--it's a great color. I apparently just missed out on the Montblanc British Racing Green ink by entering this hobby in 2010, just as that ink was discontinued. People often suggest that Epinard is a comparable ink and fair substitute, along with Diamine Green Black, Diamine Evergreen, and Noodler's Zhivago. Having never tried the original, I can't give an opinion. What I can say is that this ink more than stands on its own.
What makes this ink great for work is the fact that like many Sailor inks, it's incredibly well-behaved on cheap copy paper. If your employer, like mine, buys whatever it can get the most of for the least amount of money, and you absolutely must use a fountain pen at work, Sailor Jentle Ink is a pretty safe bet. I have bottles of Epinard, Apricot, Grenade, and the ultimate cheap-paper ink, the pigmented nano-black. All are excellent.
Rumor is that Sailor is releasing a new range of ink this summer. One of the colors among them is an even darker green-black, which is on my list. Stay tuned. And if anyone wants to send me a sample/full bottle of the British Racing Green, feel free to reach out . . . . :)
