Any good silver pens from Japan? Make and model? Thank you.


Want to buy: Any titanium pen with 18k nib encrusted with blue diamonds blessed by the Dalai Lama at a minimum altitude of 8,500 meters.

There are many 'good silver pens' from Japan.

You can start with the Pilot Silvern series

Sailor Profits come in silver too.

 

I am curious about your terminology.

What do you mean by 'good' silver pens as opposed to bad silver pens.

All of the Japanese pens I know are 'good.'

 

If you add in vintage one can find a substantial array of makes and models.

+1

 

 

In addition to the Pilot/Namiki Silvern suggested by Stan, that sells for around 360USD new, Also look at the Elegance NC sterling silver for 260USD street price.

+ 1 to Stan and Hari - Platinum also offers some beautiful sterling silver pens, including a straight-lined guilloche model (awesome review, btw Hari!) and some hand-hammered models.  They are pricier than the ones referenced earlier, but wow they are beautiful!

 

I've just started on a sterling kick myself - I found a very nice Pilot Silvern Chrysanthemum from 1976 which feels great in the hand and writes perfectly.  


Currently using:Too many pens inked to list, I must cut back! :) I can guarantee there are flighters, urushi, and/or Sheaffer Vac-fillers in the mix!!!

Another beauty!  I had the sterling 1911 with a plastic grip which I sold to fund my titanium Nakaya Piccolo, but I think I might try to find that full sterling model. :)

I'll post a picture here in the Rising Sun forum in a few moments and then try to do a review later this week.  :thumbup:

I actually came across a Silvern at a pen show and didn't get it.  I didn't know what it was and just knew it had a cool paisley pattern and it was a Pilot.  I got a hold of the guy who had it afterwards but he already sold it.  It was for a good price, too.  :(  I have been looking online and have seen the ones listed throughout this forum except for the one I saw.  *cries*

All are Good and all are Japanese.

These are from my website. Have many more.

Vintage Japanese silver is highly collectible and has appreciated over the years.

I like sterling silver pens, although I do not own any Japanese models. Your pens look very appealing Stan! :)
