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:

Ikuta Orange is nice vermillion orange. I like it but, to be honest, it's not better than Diamine Vermillion or other oranges in this color range. So if you're crazy about nagasawa-kobe line it won't disappoint you. If you like similar colors Diamine Vermillion is good alternative. Darker and more saturated. As my scanner usually misinterprets reds and oranges I've made photos in artificial light. I used grey card for WB settings.

I like how bright it is, but too red for my tastes.

Thanks for all the reviews!

Thanks for the review.  Not a color for me (although it is better than most oranges I've seen).

I like red-oranges, but I have a whole lot of similar ink to get rid of before I buy any more. This one looks like a winner. Thanks for the review!
