Ink Review:
Nagasawa Kobe #18 Sannomiya Pansy


Overall Impressions:
The color does make me think of the dark purple in a pansy. It has very nice shading.

Shading: Yes, from medium purple to very dark purple. Very dramatic looking with a big nib.
Sheen: There was little bit with a wet nib, on the outlines where ink pools.

Flow: Good
Water Resistance: Low, leaves behind a pinkish-purple line.
Ease of Cleaning: Seemed easy to clean out of the pens.
Nib Creep: None seen.

Tomoe River Paper:
Dry Time: around 15-20 sec
Water Resistance: Leaves behind a pinkish outline.
Writing Samples: A little bit of shading in EF. Shading in the bigger nibs. A hint of an outline of sheen where a lot of ink pooled. No feathering. No bleedthrough except where I heavily scribbled on the page. Some showthrough.

Apica Paper:
No bleeding or feathering. Some showthrough with bigger nibs. Shading in the 1.1 stub; a little in the 0.6 stub if you try to look for it.

Notebook Paper:
Staples composition book, paper made in Brazil. My current notebook has inconsistent paper that can show feathering and bleedthrough.
A little feathering with the 1.1 stub. Very occasional feathering with the 0.6 stub. No feathering with the EF. No bleedthrough. Light showthrough. No shading.

[Working my way through posting some inks I played with over the holidays. I'm still trying to figure out formatting, photos, and what's useful in an ink review]

Thank you! It was fun to do. I picked a random book off my shelf; I know I read it a while back, but I had forgotten what it was about. (The passages are from The Catalans by Patrick O'Brian, if anyone was wondering)

Thank you for the review! By some coincidence I have a pen inked up with Sailor Shigure and this reminds me a lot of it.

I love Shigure!


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