Boxed set of 3 Sailor Shikiori Shitoshito fountain pen ink cartridges.
Designed as companion inks to the Sound of Rain fountain pens that Sailor released in 2021, these inks are named for the different sounds that rain makes as it falls. The gentle rains of spring are expressed with the light teal color of Shitoshito, meaning ‘silent and still.’
These proprietary cartridges fit all Sailor cartridge/converter fountain pens (except the Chalana). Each cartridge is labeled with the name of the ink, and a directional arrow indicating how to insert the cartridge into your pen.
The three cartridges comes in a portable white carrying case.
