Sailor Jentle Yamadori

Sailor Jentle Yamadori is a blue-teal fountain pen ink in the company’s Four Seasons collection. In its previous form it was sold as Jentle Yama-dori but now it’s commonly called “Shikiori Yamadori.”

The ink’s name is sometimes spelled as “Yama-dori” but that spelling has largely shifted to “Yamadori” in the recent years. The ink has seen some changes in its packaging as well — it used to be sold in a round 50 ml bottle, but now it sold in a 20 ml square glass bottle that is very similar to that used by the Pilot Iroshizuku sample sizes.
