I can't get over how cool traveling to Japan to have a little, old Japanese man with the title Blending Master mix you up a custom ink in a cocktail shaker is. For an ink lover, it's like level 100 awesomeness.

Well, I didn't travel to Japan to have ink made. I have been living in Japan for the past 15 years. I did have to travel down town with wife and infant in tow, but didn't travel from overseas.

What a wonderful story and what a beautiful ink! It is a shame that Western cultures do not appreciate fountain pens and inks as the Japanese do.


This appreciation is far from universal here. My students and wife think I am nuts for spending so much on any writing instrument, especially in the age of tablets and iPhones.

I'm assuming it's the second floor as there's clearly a lack of floor space on K. Itoya

Thank you for sharing pictures of such a personal ink! It looks like a beautiful color :happycloud9:  And I can't believe he made it 2 shots! I am definitely going to need to take a trip to Japan someday

This was such a very cool story to read!  What a wonderful experience!  I can only imagine how much fun such an experience would be.

 

I'd love to see this done at a pen show here in the US.  Can you imagine the length of the lines?

The only way to do it would be to take reservations in advance.

What a nice blue ink.

Do you have any more custom ink mixtures you like?


My dip pen collection: a teenager, already big but maturing.

My fountain pen collection: a baby, small but growing very, very, very fast.

Nope, just the one. I am pretty satisfied with the other colors I have. I have many blue I love but couldn't find "the one".
