This week's sponsor is Anderson Pens, who were kind enough to send over samples of the four recently released inks in Sailor's Four Seasons "Shikiori" series. Sold in attractive 20ml inkwell-style bottles, the Shikiori inks come in four colors: Yonaga ("Long Autumn Evening"), a deep blue; Shimoyo, ("Frosty Winter Night"), a blue-black with tones of gray; Yodaki ("Summer Night Bonfire"), a bright reddish orange; and Yozakura ("Evening Spring Cherry Blossom"), a muted pinkish-lavender. While I haven't had an opportunity to put these through a full review (look for that in the future), based on quick swabs my two favorites are the Yonaga and Yodaki.
In addition to Sailor, Anderson Pens is an authorized retailer of a wide range of brands, including Montblanc, Aurora and Faber-Castell. For more background, check out this sponsor profile I published here. Many thanks to Anderson Pens for their continued sponsorship of The Gentleman Stationer!
