How many Kobe inks are there again?  Too many for my mere mortal collection to handle! But I am slowly working through them, at least the pinks and purples ^_^

I’ve had Kobe #30 Ooji Cherry sitting for a while, I’m not sure why.  The color inside the bottle looks beautiful and I am usually drawn to inks with pink tones.  It comes in the standard Kobe black box.


In the awesome Sailor bottle WITHOUT the miser plastic 🙂


For this review I decided to ink up my Pelikan M205 White with Medium Nib.  It is a reliable writer, and it was out of ink!

Ink Blob:


I was surprised to find out that this particular ink did not have sheen, even on the blob.  The shading wasn’t ridiculous, but it was decent.  The saturation felt a little weak, and the ink seems to have an almost neon quality.  I don’t dislike the color, but I wasn’t blown away as I am with most Sailor/Kobe inks with pink tones.  This reminds me of a redder Sweet Love Pink without the lovely attributes.  I will probably take a pass on a second bottle of this, but am glad to have it in my collection ^_^

I leave you now with photos of a tiny purchase at MB today, the ink obsession continues…
