Sailor Kobe #3 Kyuu-Kyoryuuchi "old Foreigner's Ward Sepia"

Recommended Posts

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

And his review of #3

https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/299024-sailor-kobe-3-old-foreigner-ward-sepia/?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)

"It's very nice, but frankly, when I signed that list for a P-51, what I had in mind was a fountain pen."

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

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.

      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.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
