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:

Haruka337 has sent me samples of four Kobe inks. They were fun to try. Thank you Michelle!

Shinkaichi Gold is interesting ink I enjoy. It will never make to my Top 5 inks but it's interesting and worth trying nevertheless.

Somehow it reminds me of Alt goldgrun and Pilot Iro Ina-ho. Well a bit anyway.

 

Thanks for the very nice review.

^It is within the same realm of Ina-ho and Alt Golden Grun, but you're right in implying that the similarities are limited.

Ina-ho is more of a dried-out golden brown (wonderful color). Alt Golden Grun displays a more prominent green hue. Shinkaichi Gold is, as Lgsoltek stated, a more "earthier" gold with it's underlying green.

Colorwise, I prefer Shinkaichi Gold over the other two.

 

All three, while not overly saturated, write plenty dark for legibility.

Ink, a drug.
