Day 3 (3rd June) of the recent ink challenge was the day I tried this ink. I have reviewed another Kobe Ink and in that review there is more information about Kobe Ink Story inks. However, briefly the Kobe inks are made by Sailor for the Nagasawa department store in Kobe. In Japan they are known as monogatari – so if you go internet hunting for them you will find them under: Kobe Story, Nagasawa -Penstyle and Monogatari.
The ink I chose for June the second, I liked it so much I refilled the pen.
The Great Barrier Reef is composed of nearly 3000 individual reefs and 900 islands, it stretches for more than 2000km in the coral sea off the coast of Queensland. Contrary to the urban legend that the Great wall of China can be seen from outer space the Great Barrier can be seen, it is the worlds largest structure made by living organisms.
I am towards the end of the 30 inks in 30 days challenge and plan to review the inks I used but went and left some things I needed at work so in the meantime another great ink from the Birmingham Pen Co. Links to the company are in previous posts which can be accessed via the categories section of my blog. I purchased all my ink directly from the Birmingham Pen co and they currently cost (in US dollars) $5.99 for 30ml and $9.99 for 60ml.
It has been awhile since I have reviewed as life just caught up with me but I knew I had to get back here especially now I’m half way through #30inks30days and I have swatched so many interesting colours. I bought two Taccia inks recently and used them for days 12 and 14 of the challenge. This review is for Ebi – red/purple.
Before I start though, contrary to some reviewers these are NOT Taiwanese inks. Taccia pens are American, the inks are made in japan but state very clearly on the bottles they were born in California.
It is awhile since I have posted anything as I have been away. I have on my travels managed to purchase a lot of new inks and a few pens. I am currently a little obsessed with Hypercolors copper ink, I am fascinated by this being a truly metallic ink, not a shimmer but metallic.
