Nagasawa Kobe #23 Nagata Blue

This is my first ever ink review, so there might be a bit more to wish for. Especially my handwriting....

 

The paper I have used is a copy paper, but not the cheapest. Actually it's quite nice to write on.

Water resistance test. Held under running water for about 7-8 seconds. Quite good result, imho.

By accident I spilled som tea on a note I hade written. So, one extra resistance test.

I hope you found the review interesting and helpful.

 

Feedback is welcome.

Thank you.

Beautiful, beautiful shading. Reminds me of Caran d' Ache Magnetic blue but with a much better water resistance and no hint of pink when washed away.

 

I'll pencil this on my wish list and keep an eye out for it.

Thanks! I also like the shading.

Atsu (cool-japan) has it for sale on eBay.

Thanks for the review! I'm just starting to explore the world of Japanese ink, and every review is very helpful.

 

Also, I love that you put lines through your "q's"-- I do that, too, and it's not something I've seen others do much. Handwriting excitement! :D

Japanese inks, especially Sailor's, are great!

 

That's how we are thought to write q's in Sweden. So that they're not confused with g's.

A picture I shot it in the light from my window, but it is a bit blue and have gotten some strange lines across it. But maybe they can be to some use....

Thank you, Andy. Great review.

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

Great review! The color has a professional feel to it.

Yes, it feels very usable in my daily work. Especially on official documents.

Hi Andy, thank you for a fab review. I love the shading of this very sturdy blue, it feels like a very mature and reserved ink, very 'grown up'. I look forward to more of your reviews!.

It's a lovely blue jeans color. Great review--keep it comin'!

Thanks!

As soon as I get a new, bit unusual ink, I will write a new review. Probably in my new Oxford notebook :)

Thanks for the review. This ink is right up my alley and the water resistance is really impressive. It reminds me a bit of the Montblanc Midnight Blue. Thanks for turning me on to an ink I would have never even considered.

Any chance you could take a shot of this ink on the oxford paper. Perhaps we would see even more shading and a touch of sheen on the nicer paper.

I think its fairly close to the old IG MB Midnight Blue, but has more shading.

 

 

I have my Oxford notebook at work and I will be on a business trip in the beginning of next week, but if you have some patient I will try to post a writing sample by the end of next week. I will look for the sheen.

Now I've done a writing sample in my Oxford My Colors Notebook with Optic paper.

Not very big difference from the copy paper in my orignal review, but it shades slightly more and you can force it to sheen a little when it's very wet. I only managed to get sheen when I dropped the ink onto the paper. The text also become a bit lighter on the Optic paper, if it's good or bad is up to the beholder.

 

I apologize for the quality of the images. I had mixed lighting in my office and couldn't really sort it out with the camera in my phone.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
