Phew! I don't know if names get much longer than that!

I've been waiting for this pen (or one like it) for a long time. I originally spent a lot of time ogling Nakayas, but when I found out Brian Gray was working with Ernest Shin to do Edison urushis and that I'd be able to get a bulb-filler rather than a C/C pen, I stopped ogling and started saving. I finally ordered the pen for myself last year as a reward for becoming a full-time writer. It's an Edison Morgan clipless bulb-filler lacquered with heki-tamenuri urushi, and it has a B rhodium/ruthenium nib that I think looks great (I was a bit worried the nib wouldn't match the heki-tamenuri, and I'm sure some of you would have ordered a yellow-gold nib instead, but I love the combination). I'll take better pictures and write a full review later, but I just couldn't wait to show it off! :cloud9:

Now that is a nice pen! When you get a chance can we see a pic of it capped?

It doesn't bother me at all. It's rounded and very smooth, and the way I hold the pen, it only barely brushes against the inside of my thumb.

WOW!

That is the BAWSE!

(I don't know the exact definition of "bawse," but my fb comedian friends use it in a highly flattering manner, so I'm pretty sure I have the meaning correct.)

Thank you. I have got a Dunhil 2000 with a similar looking step off and it doesn't bother me either.

Congratulations and I hope you pen many more books with your new pen.

Glad to see more of Ernest's work being posted! Awesome pen. I've never seen an urushi bulb filler until your post.

Fantastic pen!

Can I ask a dumb question? With a bulb filler on a pen without a window, how do you know when it's full?

When it stops blowing bubbles in the ink.

Wow gorgeous pen. I cried a little when I saw it posted however. Just a friendly suggestion but I would really think twice about posting any urushi pens. Congrats by the way. I would love to have that pen

That and after you get used to filling a bulb-filler, you can start to feel when it's getting full.

I have to say I winced just a little, as well, but then I never post any pen. What a looker you have there and as others have said I'm looking forward to the full review, with a writing sample. Being a full time writer, that should be no problem, right? :thumbup:
