Here is a review of one of the rare Sailor inks for the Ishida Bungu shop on Hokkaido, Japan. The ink refers to a famous curry served up at a local curry house of long standing. The coloring of the ink is really great.

 

Reviewed on Mohawk via Linen, Hammermill 28 lb inkjet, and Tomoe River papers.

 

I seem to have lost my waterfastness test sheet, which it must surely be around somewhere, but not available when I want to photograph it. This ink is one of the most washed away by water that I've encountered in my tests.

There was some bleed through here, but only where I had hammered the color on the previous side.

Nice review. Pretty colour and the name adds character. Like writing with curry sauce?
The praise of the praiseworthy is above all rewards.

White_lotus, how does it compare to Bungbox Kabayaki of the Hamanako Eel?

It looks a little like the after effects of strong curry to me, which really puts me off it.

White_lotus, how does it compare to Bungbox Kabayaki of the Hamanako Eel?

The Hakodate curry seems to be in the Raw Sienna color range while the BB Kabayaki of the Hamanako Eel is more lightly Burnt Sienna. So more golden brown vs a warmer light brown. The curry is lighter, the eel darker, but not dark like MB Toffee Brown. The curry has nice shading, but the eel has great shading given it's greater value range.

 

Hopefully that is helpful.

I like curry :3 mild is fine but it seems Hakodate Curry is more of a lighter less spicy variety
