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:

 

Pier Blue can be considered as Nagasawa-kobe royal blue, I guess. Happily because of sheen it's not boring. Personally I wouldn't consider to offer myself a bottle of this ink.

It's actually pretty neat. It's like if Pelikan/Lamy/Waterman/Parker blue were a little more saturates and had sheen. I will keep this in mind.

 

Thank you so much for reviewing these Kobe inks. I had figured I had all the inks I needed, but these reviews are very tempting.

Oh, this is really pretty. I might have to add this to my wish list.

Thanks, Vis.  I considered this one, but I think I will wait, I really love the overly saturated and retina searing vibrant inks and this one isn't obnoxiously bright.  Thank you for another great review.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Another great review! I love how you do these and rely on them so much!

While I find this color reasonably pleasing, and I love Sailor inks, I do not like it well enough to buy a bottle.
