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:

 

Kaikyo Blue is dark and stronly saturated Blue/black with strong sheen. Although I'm not this color range  enthusiast I enjoy this one.

Great shot. I'm confused by two names :) On Cool - Japan chart irt's called Kaikyo but on others Sea Strait Blue. Also East Asia Black is called Toa Black in some places.

The Akashi Kaikyo Bridge spans the Akashi Strait, and is part of the Kobe Expressway. There's a picture of the bridge over the Strait on the bottle.

What a beautiful blue black ink. Looks like Sailor Kobe's response to Pilot's Iro Shin Kai, assuming i have my issue chronology right  :)

My first thoughts, too, when I bought it.

 

I'm confused by two names

 

It's Sailor Jentle Nagasawa Pen Style Kobe Ink Story no.7, Kaikyo (Sea Strait) Blue. I'm not sure why it's confusing... ;)

Really nice.

 

This looks a lot like one of my faves, Noodler's Blue Upon The Plains of Abraham (I literally just filled my Conklin with some a minute ago).

 

migo984, any chance of a side by side ?  :rolleyes:

I was just thinking the same thing....  Because I was looking at the scans going "Hmm.  More of a blue-grey than a blue-black...."

I don't see it as either :-) Definitely not blue-grey. I'll do a match as per Tas' request and will add Shin-Kai too.

I've done a quick comparison as requested, but have posted in a new thread so it doesn't hijack this review of Kobe #7 by Vis.

This is one I think I will buy. I love blue blacks and the sheen really sets this apart. Thanks for the review. 

 

Any water resistance??

Great review! It is an unusual color. I'm not sure whether I like it or not. It might grow on me.

Hmm... this looks similar to... what is it? Sailor Blue Black? Maybe it's darker than SBB. I do like the SBB -- more than this one.
