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:

 

Nada Brown is great brown. A little too red for me but still nice nevertheless.

Sailor Brown is much yellower, which I prefer.

This is in my short list of Browns to get.... a tad redder but seems nice.   It does look a little "flat"...  :mellow:

 

 

Thanks Vis...

Thanks for the review.  I'll pass on this one, since I'm not a fan of browns that lean red.

I'm not a fan of browns, but I really liked this one.  In person, it's much prettier than on the screen. This is one of those inks that is just better on the paper.  Thanks Vis for another great review.


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

Not to start some kind of bloody war but I'd much rather own all of the Kobe inks than all of the Iroshizukus. There are SO many fantastic inks in this lineup -- thanks for all these reviews!!
