Are there really 50+ Kobe inks already? I have 4 of them, I’m super behind! The latest in my collection is Kobe #57, one of a pair of Hydrangea colors. I chose to try this one first because of the photos online showing an interesting shading.
It comes in the standard Kobe box.
As you can see from the paper towel test, this color has a lovely blue halo. The ink actually shades this color sometimes which creates an absolutely divine effect. It ran on the drier side in this pen, but I am guessing in a broader nib the effect would be much more dramatic. There’s a white TWSBI Eco Broad on its way so I can test that theory. This color seriously reminds me of the unicorn emoticon🦄🦄🦄. The only issue that I find is that the saturation is a bit low for my liking. But no regrets on this ink, I cant wait to try its sister #56!
