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!
Line going down on 68GSM Tomoe:
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…

That bottle almost looks like you would expect to find cherry preserves, jelly or something like that!
