That's a pity, I liked the yellow. I am in Tokyo also and was planning on dropping in tomorrow, perhaps I should go straight to the Mitsukoshi pen show first to look at their exclusive (the blue with specks) before it sells out.
I was thinking of going to Itoya first to look at common pens as I'm not familiar with a lot of them irl. Not many fountain pens where I live ;-) Even getting to try the range of nibs on a Platinum 3776 will be amazing :-)

I think they were talking about the Maruzen Athena 1870 blue ink, and not either the yellow ink or the 'Lemon' pen.

I hope you have great fun tomorrow! Wish I was there (but then I'd have to keep my credit cards at home, as a safeguard against undisciplined and unconstrained spending of money I don't actually have).

Let's give each other due respect, and approach discussion rigorously. I believe we're all peers and equals here as fellow hobbyists, with common interests in the acquisition and use of fountain pens, but no shared values and no obligation to offer each other moral support for one's narrative.

Oh I thought they were talking about the lemon pen!
Yeah today will be expensive, oh well! I can't afford any of the really expensive pens but it's going to be cool to see them :-)

That would be interesting to know.

> The Athena ink is 30% off

OK, I know about 15-18 different Athena inks, which one?

In March, Maruzen Oazo had Athena Blue (not Eternal Blue) and Athena Black 30% off - because they have a selling limit of 2 years from the day of the production - and this 2 years day was approaching.

The Athena Blue, from what I can tell by dipping a pen into the bottle ;)

 

EDIT: Or actually, the more I look at it, it's more likely Black. (But I got two bottles blind, so the other could be Blue.)
