There have been a number of reviews of the Sailor Nagasawa Kobe line of inks, most recently by visvamitra showcasing the whole line.

 

Starting with #1

http://www.fountainp...reen/?p=3497945

 

And his review of #3

http://www.fountainp...epia/?p=3485273

 

The usual test papers: MvL=Mohawk via Linen, Hij=Hammermill 28lb inkjet, TR=Tomoe River.

 

Unfortunately the iPhone seems to not understand dark brown, and always thinks "black". It is so wrong. I've fiddled with the settings to no avail.

 

Anyway, this is a wonderful, yummy ink.

Surprisingly with some water resistance.

And as always with Sailor custom inks, a very interesting chromatography.

Thank you for another wonderful review of a Sailor ink I love.  I think of it not as a "Sepia" but as one of the "stealth" inks (dark enough to be confused with a "black," but more interesting) in  the category of Sailor's BungBox "Ink of the Witch."  It is just a wonderful ink as your review shows.

Yes, it doesn't seem like what we might call sepia today. It would be interesting to know more of the history, maybe the foreigner's in the Old Foreigner's Ward make their ink differently.

 

But still a great ink.

Thanks for the review.

I was about to complain that you were going to make me add this to the "want list".  But then I discovered it was already on there.... B)

Lovely review as always.

Is this similar to Noodler's Whaleman's Sepia?

I don't have that Noodler's ink, so I can't offer a comparison.

Not at all.  Whaleman's is much redder.

Nice review, thanks. From your writing sample it looks like this is a fairly wet, free flowing ink, is that correct?

Thank you for this awesome review! This is one of my favorite brows, along with Sailor Doyou, Sailor Bung Box Espresso. All three are similar, but each is unique in some way.

Love the chromatography. The far-right chroma looks like a bungalow with an attached tool shed.

Well, thank you for the review.

 

I just picked up a bottle. I'm a huge dark brown fan and this hits the spot.
