Based on what I have seen at recent pen shows, Taccia has been making some gorgeous looking urushi pens, many with quite interesting finishes.  Several I like have been prototypes and will be produced with Sailor nibs.  They are expensive, and I find myself uncertain about whether to spend that kind of money on this particular brand.  Shu-Jen Lin is always very engaging, and I have been tempted. 

 

Does anybody have any actual experience with Taccia's urushi or maki-e pens?

The clips always kept me from being too interested at the prices asked. I have not seen the new pens this year yet, but should at the end of the month at the SF show.

I would point you to the good folks at Stylo Art pens as they have reasonably priced urushi pens and offer an array of nibs. I bought an amazing raden and shell pen and it was fit with a Pilot #15 FA nib for fun. I think they also have Sailor and Platinum nibs too.
