Sailor Jentle Yama-Dori

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!

    Loving your blog! Just a question, I believe I’ll be visiting Seoul this winter. Is there a chain of stores where I can buy this ink? Thanks for your help!

      Yes, definitely! I recommend Pen Shop Korea located near Yeongdeungpo-gu Office Station. It’s in the Dream Tower office building right across the street from Costco. Or Bestpen which is located near Yeoksam Station on Line 2. Go out Exit 7 and walk straight up the road for a few blocks and it’ll be on your right. If you want any more specific help, feel free to drop me an email!

    Thanks Adam for the quick reply! This is super useful and very informative. I’ll let you know how it goes come december! P.S.: I really appreciate all of the reviews of asian inks! They’re so hard to find aside from FPN! 😀
