Thank you for sharing these images of the Maki-E pens.  There are several I have never seen & make for some "wishful dreaming!"  It is a rare treat to see so many beautifully executed pens on one site.

The "Yu-nami" and "Spring Under the Stars" pens are especially beautiful.  But alas for me, even if I could afford them, I don't dare buy a pen that I wouldn't be able to safely use without wearing latex gloves....  :( 

But thanks for posting the link.  I enjoy looking at the artistry of maki-e pens, even if for me all I can do is look....

Currently the price is beyond my budget I will add it as a line item to my fiscal plan for 2033 or 2034.

My Urushi allergy is strictly fiscal....

 

Well, there is that problem as well....

Early on in my forays into this hobby, I found some website just chock full of amazing -- but frightfully expensive -- maki-e pens.  I told my husband "Look dear! I've just saved you $20,000!"  But somehow, he just did not fully appreciate my sacrifice....  :angry:

I'm in love with the Kurenai and You-kou models but I too have a fiscal urushi allergy
