I’m selling my limited edition Danitrio ‘Sho-Genkai’ fountain pen; affectionately known as the “Baby Genkai”.
I purchased my Baby Genkai in July 2012 through Kevin Cheng who had organized this limited edition of 25 pens to be made by the famous Danitrio pen company exclusively for members of the Fountain Pen Network & Pentrace. I was lucky and quick enough to secure one, even though I am based in New Zealand! It measures 155 mm, is made of raw ebonite and is one of the 13 with a plated silver clip. It has medium width 18 carat gold nib. So being 1 out of a total of 25 makes it very rare indeed in the fountain pen world.
As most members will know this is an ‘eye-dropper’ pen (with a ‘shut-off’ valve) hence the bulb filler in the box. This means it has a gigantic (compared to other pen reservoirs) capacity to store ink.
This pen is in ‘as new’, perfect condition and has not even been dipped in ink! It has all of its original documentation (instruction sheets and letter of authentication), presentation box and protective outer cardboard box. The only reason that I have not used this pen is that I have been too attached to my present daily pen which is a Nakaya Decapod with an urushi finish. Given the rarity and condition, this is an ‘investment grade’ fountain pen and people who know fountain pens will tell you that Danitrio is a very highly regarded pen company notable for its ‘Maki-e’ decorated pens. I too have heard the rumours of the impending retirement of the head of Danitrio pens, here’s hoping that he might reconsider or perhaps at least think of passing the torch!
US$1200 free shipping & insurance in the UK; US$20 world-wide shipping & insurance to everywhere else. NB: I will only ship this pen on receipt of the funds, sorry but I have been caught before!
