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:

Gakuen Toshi Fresh Green looks fresh and basicly is rather nice. On the other hand it's too light for me, I would have hard time finding application for it.

Well, thanks to generous ink enablers who've sent me a lot of samples I've almost finished Nagasawa-Kobe comparison. I lack only one color now - Wadamisaki Blue (no. 26). Looking at full comparison I see that I'll need to buy some of these inks. There are few must haves. Quite a few. My wallet is crying :/

Vis.. you dolt!!!..  I gave you the list of Kobe inks I have and Wadamisaki Blue was there.... you didn't ask for it..   :roller1: :roller1:

 

 

 

Between the bright blue greens and the yellow greens... I rather take the yellow greens... this one is tad light to be useful for writing thou.  :unsure:

I like this green, too, but not for writing, at least not for a lot of writing. Maybe more for doodling.

Definitely an interesting (if too light) green.
