Thank you so much for the comment!
Sailor's Zoom is easy to handle and feels very smooth so far.

Hi, studiohead.
Thanks for your asking. :)

The picture I took is Nakaya Fountain Pen shop
in Matsue City, Shimane prefecture,Japan.

He's one of the most famous pen doctors in my
country! I'll leave the address of the shop.

I become very happy to see this heart warming video. I have applauded the supporters for Nakaya.( By way of cautioning you ,let me add the following,
this Nakaya is a name of fountain pen shop in Matsue, not famous maker Nakaya.)

Hi, ethernautrix and rokurinpapa. :)
I'm really glad to know you enjoyed the vids I've uploaded.

Even most Japanese confuse 中屋万年筆 with 中屋万年筆店. lol
中屋万年筆店 specializes in the repairing of fountain pens.

Hi, shuuemura.

Those videos are not TV documentaries. To tell the
truth, I've studied the potential role of fountain
pens for a long time.

Earning my spurs, I was given this DVD(not for sale)
by National Museum of Japanese History.

So, those vids are interesting parts of the DVD. :)

Hi ALL,

BTW, have you already watched this movie? lol
This is a joke movie I've made.

Be careful when you insert Sailor nibs into the
Cartier's bottle. ^^;

Thanks for the videos, quite informative on the styles of nibs Sailor offers even though I cannot understand Japanese. Unfortunately, now I REALLY want that Naginata Cross Concord.

Hi NedC,

Naginata Cross Concord has much smoother
and more useful nib than any other Sailor
nibs.

I hope you can get it in the near future! :)
