Smashing! Thanks. Think I'll get a converter for more choice of ink.

 

Can't wait to see the pens. I got confirmation of order today. I'm getting 'desist & anchor', 'beckoning, pink' and 'strawberry milk'. LOL

 

I like the sound of Desist & Anchor :lol:

Just what the world needs: a Parker Urban that's been "bedazzled". :sick:  I'll pass, thanks.

It wasn't a bad looking color pink, otherwise....  Of course it's *still* an Urban, so there's really no hope.   :glare:

Not a spring chicken any more, but she still has style...all three inches of her.

I just received this note from a reader in Germany who requested that I post his/her views on "cute"

 

"Cute" kann, wo Sie von Ihrem Alter sind und abhängen. Ich habe eine Sammlung von Hummel Stifte mit den süßen kleinen vorpubertären Jungen und Mädchen, die Erwachsenenaktivitäten. Aber mein Favorit "cute" Stift (Ich nehme an, niedlich ist "cute") ist mein Fett Hermann Stift mit Hermann in einem sehr niedlich Flugzeug.

 

I think the observations speak for themselves.

The Platinum and Sailor Hello Kitty SE pens were, sadly, a one-off Sanrio licensing thingie that may or may not be coming back given the massive backlash against Kawaii culture that is now building up steam in Japan.
At this point, the only people with remaining stocks that are readibly accessible by non-Japanese, at least for the Preppy Hello Kitties, that I've seen are the Japanese stationary company Penroom. There maybe be a few others, and if you don't really care about quality and authenticity, I've seen a fair number of chinese fakes on eBay.

I have greatly enjoyed this thread, although my taste in pens and women has up to now been more austere than all this with Hello Kitty. (I am currently writing with an Aurora Hastil in stainless steel and, I concede, a Parker 51 Demi that is feline in its own way.)

More, more. Granted, the OP would consider me a doddering ancient. Still, it may be time to walk away from "I like Radcliffe girls," a dated reference, and consider some less-than-serious froufrou. There is also plenty of serious froufrou, but I am thinking of froufrou with a wink.

Ooooh I really like the Hello Kitty pen. My 10 yr old would love it too!
I'll have to look into the Sailor Clear Candy too. Getting great ideas for my daughter's next fountain pen. :)

Komomono Honpo just shipped my order. I shouldn't say anything until it gets here, but $49 incl s+h for two fricken adorable CCs, a bottle of Sailor Jentle Ink, and a bottle of Iroshizuku?! If everything comes in safely and on time, I'll swear by this store for the rest of my fountain pen life.

In absolute fairness, I also like the more serious aesthetic of some old fountain pens - they are a bit too expensive for me at this exact moment, however. Perhaps when I am older and more importantly, with a stable income, I'll be able to afford such elegantly built pens. Of course there are always happy middles, like the Nakaya blue sapphire cat!

It's not "Snotty Radcliffe b*tch"?   ;)

Today, Gizumi wrote of the german quote that i hadn't bothered to translate. My Bad!

Unfortunately I had to run this through Google Translate to read their comment, but I do agree! I'd love to see what their favorite cute pens look like! ... from Gizumi.

 

Here is a quick translation for the gist of my friend's note:

 

"Cute" is where you are on your age and country. I have a collection of Hummel pens with the sweet little prepubescent boys and girls conducting adult activities. But my favorite "cute" pen (I assume that  cute is  "niedlich") is my fat  Hermann pen with a very cute plane.

 

Following on Gizumi's request for pictures, I asked ny friend for some shots. The reply said in effect that there would be problems with the subject matter but he/she would attempt to convey the spirit of the pens, if not the reality.

 

My attempt to convey the gist:

 

http://s271.photobuc...html?sort=3&o=0

 

A boy and girl figure are juxtaposed in such a way that when the pen is posted the figures are amalgamated,

 

http://s271.photobuc...6dvv60.jpg.html

 

A former ReichsMarshall is in a plane that drifts back and forward over England as you tilt it.

 

​I hope I have caught the example of "cute" that my friend intends.

 

Danke,

 

That Dick in Hood River

Not snotty to me. Then again, there is a little publication in jest that awarded the Marlborough Gallery the prize for most forbidding gallery atmosphere, and I can say in all honesty that I liked Marlborough girls, too. Which may help to explain some pleasant experiences during golden days gone by.

I like the sound of Desist & Anchor :lol:

 

I got my three Clear Candies and inked up 'Desist and Anchor'. I think it's called that because as well as the anchor motif, it has the Sailor trademark prominently displayed as part of the design. The other two don't have the trademark front and center in the same way.

 

Anyway, I love it! It's a really nice little writer. Fine nib, with some feedback, but not at all scratchy or unpleasant.
