Hi Everyone,
Does anyone know anything about this pen, it does not show up on the Japanese pens list.  It's a Japanese eyedropper with Bunshodo Pen stamped on the barrel.  The nib says Stenographer, in the world, pointed hardest, Platinum <15>.  Interestingly the nib says Platinum, is this an old Platinum pen?  Or just the nib?  The clip looks like an old Pilot clip but is not stamped Pilot.  This is a good size pen as compared to my Sailor Pro-Gear.  Any information would be appreciated.

It's a 1940ish eyedropper. One of many. Bunshodo does not ring any bells. You might post on one of the several Japan-based blogs.


A number of years ago I saw an extensive collection of Japanese logos online. Might be worth a few days effort looking through them. Long shot hope.
