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:

Hashibuse Silhuette Green is greyish green. I like it.

the ink drop made me think of J Herbin Vert Empire. But I think the writing sample looks a bit less murky.

Thanks for the review. This is one I'd have to think about....

Oh my! I have decided to divide my greens into "Stone" and "Earth" Greens - mostly as an excuse to justify two on the go at one time. This looks very, very appealing as a Stone Green (#16 doesn't hit the spot for me).

Any thoughts on the distinction between #28 "Lily of the Valley" and #34 "Tea" Greens - those both look gorgeous but hard to distinguish from here? If you had to choose two Kobe Greens only, what would they be?

Also would these add value (they are not cheap!) to my current selections?

Here's my favorite Stone Greens:

There's not one thing on that page I'm not drooling over. Absolutely beautiful :wub:

The Riddle Green from Birmingham Pens is a sample I have almost got to the bottom of without solving the enigma. I enjoy writing with it as a cold stone grey and it's a nice complement to KWZ Hunter Green, where the green is similarly elusive but which resolves to a cool brown. I was almost ready to stump for a bottle, but now I'm thinking this Kobe #45 might better suit my tastes - a darker grey than Fern Moss but with a definite green hue?

Oh wait, I have a bottle of Diamine Graphite in a drawer somewhere! Is there no end to this rabbit hole?!

I have three in this range now, and each has its own distinct character, but I thought a side-by-side might help people select if they were only wanting one:

Kobe #45 Hachibuse Silhouette Green (darkest, but keeps its green and doesn't look black),

De Atramentis Dark Reseda Green (Bluer and wetter but still nicely grey),

Birmingham Pens' Southside Park Fern Moss (soft grey/blue/green - greyest but clearly green in comparison to other colors).

Three very nice inks, a stylish hand, and a delightful drawing. Thank you.

Hachibuse in changing light:

The scan (top left) is useless! True color is somewhere between the two natural light photos, not quite as olive as the top right, but a little more so than the bottom left (which is probably closest on this gloomy day).

Subtle, even elusive, but rather refined?
