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:

Shioya Blue is, for me, one of the least interesting inks in the nagasawa-kobe line. There's nothing wrong with it except for the fact it does nothing for me.

I have a sample of it and I liked it a lot. On the right paper there is this gorgeous purple sheen.

Love this one. But I'm sucker for these kinds of lighter Sailor blues.

Now this is a blue that I can get behind.  Bright and cheery, but still dark enough to be readable on the page.  Another one for the "I want" spreadsheet.  Which somehow just keeps getting longer and longer....  :wallbash: 

Thanks for the review (my husband *won't* thank you, though...  :lol:).

For the price, Barrier Reef Blue is for me. Thank you, Vis.

I like it, but it reminds me of DeAtramentis Myrrh, which is a bit less expensive.

Myrrh looks slightly greener and doesn't have that nice sheen:
