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:

Sakaemachi Indigo is strange ink. The color isn't bad but it seems much drier than the rest of Kobe inks. I'm not sure if I like it.

Thank you. I love your reviews.


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

I've had two bottles of this one and ended up selling each. I like the color, but it's nearly identical to Diamine Misty Blue, which is easier to get, cheaper, and performs better, in my experience.

Great review!

Indigo falls between violet and blue, not blue and green. I'm not feeling this one, at all. Thanks. Vis.

"Indigo" refers to the traditional Japanese dye, not the color you're thinking of.  In Japanese, it's "Asa", which is where Diamine Asa Blue gets its name also.
