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:

Maya lapis is one of nicest blues in nagasawa-kobe line. Not the best for me but worth attention nevertheless.

I don't particularly care for the red sheen, but it seems unavoidable for pretty blues. This is a pretty blue color.

 

My Internet connection is wonky, and I'm trying not to feel frustrated about all the reviews I want to look at that are not immediately loading, hahaha. Wow, though... so many inks. Many thanks for the reviews!

Oh MY....  :puddle: 

This is one pretty color.  I had a suspicion I'd like the look of it when I saw the word "lapis" in the name, but this is even better than I had anticipated. 

WAAAAANT!!!  

Thanks for the review.  And not.   :headsmack:  (The Kobe inks are gonna be pricy, aren't they...?)

Great review! I really like the color! Where do I find such a beautiful ink?

Probably the same four that they had at their table at the Ohio Pen Show a few weeks ago....
