Thank you for an excellent review. Interesting that the Yukari Royale is not an eye dropper- not a bad thing in my view. What is special about the CON 70 included with the pen?

 

Thank you da vinci :)

Nothing, except the black color vs the standard one in chrome. (the first 2 in below pic from kmpn's lovely blog)

This is some review! Thank you!

 

I've been thinking of getting the exact same pen for a while, and your review comes just in time to add impetus to the growing impulse. Sadly, I know of no good deal on the Yukari Royale :(

Thank you and sorry for this delayed reply. hope the impetus is still there

If sourcing the pen from Japan is an option, you might give the offline stores (itoya etc) a try! at least try to get the quotes from those stores.

You can ask the authorized US namiki online retailers like nibs.com, Goulet pens, chatterley for best prices for the same.

 

Best wishes!

Dear sannidh, the impetus turned into an astonishing red marvel  :)  I'm enormously happy with my Yukari Royale... despite paying more than 30% on taxes O_o (do the sad math). Although it is difficult to add much to your and the rest of great reviews on FPN, I'll try to come up with some complimentary impressions in the near future.

 

Warm regards

glad to hear! hearty congratulations  :thumbup:

IMHO each of the user reviews bring different aspects for a pen (which one user possibly can never bring) and it's a privilege we enjoy at fpn.

looking forward to your review :)

Sorry to revive a thread, but what a wonderful review. After years of putting it off (I already owned an Emperor, and the Yukari Royale seemed too similar) I picked one up recently from Itoya in Tokyo.

It immediately just felt right - everything you say about the quality, construction, weight and nib is right on the money, and it instantly challenged my Hakases for the position of favourite pen, for a fraction of the cost.

I have recently been on two 'writing exiles', trying to make headway on my next book, and took to both just the Namiki (Nagasawa 65) and a Conid (Nagasawa 27) for backup. It has been refilled dozens of times, and has never missed a beat or failed to bring me great pleasure.

I only wish I had bought one sooner.

Enjoy yours in good health.

Too many pens; too little writing.

It has become a grail pen for me. I've mostly collected Pelikans but then bought a Namiki on a whim at last year's pen show here in Philadelphia. That purchase triggered my interest in Namiki. Now I'm convinced that I want this pen to add to the collection.

I am happy that you found your love with the Yukari Royale pen, such balance with elegance is so difficult to find with others. For reasons very similar to yours, I too had put off the Yukari for sometime but couldn't resist it any further :)

 

Enjoy writing to the fullest and may it give immense spirit & inspiration to/for your next book.

 

my very best wishes

I just don't get it. I am really into Japanese fountain pens but I do not see where the price comes from. You get red Urushi pens from 400 onwards. So you pay for the golden cap ring and the red feed. Its still a fabulous pen and I would love to have one but I dont get it.

Personally I think you should compare a USD 400 red Urushi pen and a Namiki Yukari to see the difference. 

There are very distinct differences in the urushi quality and colour. 

Many people would argue that among major pen manufacturers, only Namiki still possesses the true art of producing urushi pens. 

I'm inclined to agree with that assertion myself, having handled 2 Pilot 845 and Pilot Custom 30 in red urushi myself.

:) Thanks for pointing this out! even the big red pilot custom #30 seems like a feeble competitor, although beautiful
