Ink Dupes #6: Sailor and Robert Oster

Finally I get to compare inks that aren’t completely identical. These two are close enough, though, that if the new Sailor Jentle prices are too steep for you, Jade is a good alternative. They’re almost indistinguishable in normal writing.

For those who aren’t aware, I’ve heard that the 50ml Sailor Jentle bottles are going away to be replaced with significantly more expensive (price per ml) 30ml bottles. If you’ve heard otherwise, please let me know.
