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:

Kaigan Stone Grey looks well. It's one of nicest greys I've tried so far. Well-behaved, nice hue, good lubrication.

I believe this is another "mixed" post title & review.  I was surely expecting to see the "blue" # 17 ink (identified in the title post ) yet it is identified as #31 Grey near the end of the review.  AND it surely looks like a "nice" grey.

@Barkingping - it was corrected. I see it as #31 Kaigan in the title.

Greys do nothing for me. To me they just look like a washed out poor blacks.

 

But the review was nice, as always.

Hmmm.  Like this one.  But do I need another grey ink?  Maybe not. But this will go on the "maybe" list....

Thanks for the review.

Thanks Vis. You do the best reviews on FPN.

I like #31; I'm using it now in my wet-writing vintage Parker Duofold, with stubbish nib - it has a subtle brown undertone that gives it an attractive warmth.

Oh wow, this is very pretty. Hm... thinking now about a journal written in a variety of greys. Yeah.

I like this gray. Thank you,


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