Kobe (神戸市 Kōbe-shi) is the sixth-largest city in Japan and is the capital city of Hyōgo Prefecture. It is located on the southern side of the main island of Honshū, on the north shore of Osaka Bayand about 30 km (19 mi) west of Osaka. With a population around 1.5 million, the city is part of the Kyoto-Osaka-Kobe metropolitan area along with Osaka and Kyoto. Its name comes from "kanbe" (神戸), an archaic title for supporters of the city's Ikuta Shrine. Kobe became one of Japan's 17 designated cities in 1956.
 
Kobe is famous for its shirines and nioce architecture but among fountain pen and ink afficionados the name Kobe cause increased heart-rate. The city is a home of Nagasawa-Kobe stationery shop that offers incredible lione of more than fifty inks made by Sailor.

My master - plan is to prepare comparison of full line of Nagasawa-Kobe inks. Not an easy task as they're not the most obtainable inks on the market, but hopefully I'll manage to do it                                               :)
 
At the moment Nagasawa-Kobe offers 52 inks:

 

Haruka337 has sent me samples of four Kobe inks. They were fun to try. Thank you Michelle

 

Nunobiki Emerald belongs to my least favourite color range. I sincerily dislike the colorbut if you happen to enjoy - for wharever bizarre reason - such hues this one won't disappoint you in terms of behaviour and properties :).

Awesome review, as always. I have to say, this shade of green doesn't appeal to me at all. I'm excited for you to go through this series, however! :)

I like playing with those inks and I'm having fun even if I don't really like the color. They are very well behaved and have interesting colors. I have six more samples, I'll try to organise more and hopefully finally I'll manage to review the full line.

Seems somewhat similar to the Ishida Bungu Hakodate Yama being that bright green.

This is one that I very rarely use. It doesn't really stand out amongst other similar coloured inks.

+1 on all sentiments.  Plus, it's not at all what I think of as "emerald" in color (which is the same problem I have with the new Herbin 1670 ink, and which I had with Organics Studio L Frank Baum).

Well I do agree that ink makers interpret emerald in funny ways. They usually choose the color of many raw emerald crystals that I dislike:

I would prefer to see emerald inks leaning rather toward this color range though:

Ugh. I shudder to think what you went through while reviewing this ink. :)

Still, clearly not as bad as Diabolo menthe. But not usable either.

It's saturated enough to be used if someone is keen on this color range. I ain't :)
