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:


Nagata Blue is greyish blue. Not bad but it wasn't really made for me.

Thanks for the usually fine review. I can not decide whether or not I like it.

I like it. Like a more saturated Fuyu Syogun with some very nice sheen.

On Swedish copy paper it's slightly darker and slightly bluer.

 

The shading is really nice! I don't get as much sheen as you, not even on Oxford Optik.

Great review, as always. In my experience, at least, it's so close to Sailor Blue Black that it's not really worth having both. Nice color, though.

Another great review.  This one is too gray for me.


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

Great review. This ink seems interesting and though your review is thorough, I feel like I have to try it to see if I like it.
