Sailor Yama-Dori (세일러 야마도리) was once part of the limited release of Autumn inks by Sailor. A few years later, a select few of the inks have been re-released as part of the normal Jentle line by Sailor. Yama-Dori was one of the more sought after colors of this re-release and had many people buzzing about how to get their hands on it. Sailor Yama-Dori has quickly climbed up my list of favorite blue-green inks. Not only does it exhibit the good behavior that is typical of Sailor brand inks, but the color is bold, yet soothing, and the ink shades beautifully. The icing on the cake is the lovely red sheen that the ink leaves behind when it pools up a bit. The combination of these elements makes this ink one that I highly recommend to anyone who likes blue-green inks.
While I certainly would not consider this ink to be waterproof, it does retain some legibility after it has been soaked with water. If you’re curious as to how the red sheen looks in person, please take a look at the comparison shots I have included below to show how the ink appears when light hits the ink from different angles. Personally, I love the way it looks!
