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:

Rokko Island Sky is very light blue. I wouldn't be able to find any use for it.

I kind of like it on the cream dots. But only on the cream dots . . .

If you were connected with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, this color would find many uses.

Hmm.... I expected something different. Thank you for the great review.


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

I agree.  It's a pretty color, but the writing samples make it seem to be too light to really be legible.  

Thanks for the review, though.

I bought this ink for mixing, and your review reminded me to give it a go.  Thanks!

This one seams really pretty and relaxing, but I'm not sure if I could use it.
The praise of the praiseworthy is above all rewards.

Reminds me a bit of J. Herbin Bleu Azure. A nice looking color but not particularly usable.
