    Question Kobe #57?

    Does anyone have --- or actually seen this ink? It seems to be considered a flagship of the Kobe line, but it is available nowhere I can find. To me, it
    is a mesmerizing color.

    I haven't found it in stock in any of the regular places. Maybe get a good image of all of the Sailor Ink Studio colours and see if something is like it on there?

    Thanks, Chrissy. That confirms my inability to find it available anywhere.

    I'm sure if it were just the color I could find something virtually identical in the Sailor line. However, I've formed a sort of emotional attachment to Kobe --- not just the store supplying this ink, but the lovely city itself, and this ink is said to be literally emblematic of the city. So, I'll resort to my best strategy --- patience and tenacity (oh, so Japanese!).

    Almost everywhere I looked that stocks Kobe inks has a "Notify me when available" on it.
    There is one Japanese seller on ebay who has it in stock if you're happy to pay an arm and a leg to buy it and then get it shipped expedited from Japan. An expensive bottle of ink...

    I had a reply from one Japanese seller advising that Kobe #57 will be back in stock mid June so maybe at least one of your notifications will come good from the stores that might stock Kobe inks.

    I might try and get one for myself. However it's much more complicated for the UK..... I actually slightly prefer Sailor Ink Studio 150 with just a touch more saturation.
