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:

Tarumi Apricot looks rather nice but it will never become one of my top oranges.

Hmmm.  I don't normally like orange inks, but this one is starting to lean into peach.

Thanks for the review.

Very peachy. I almost taste fresh peach looking at the images. Thanks, as always, Vis.

I agree, it's a nice peach color.

 

Though, I am with Vis, Yu-Yake is really nice.

 

Pumpkin fades to quickly to satisfy me.  BTW, the Toucan inks are nicely fade resistant.


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