Hello,

 

I've been a collector of Namiki pens for awhile, and I I just purchased my first Emperor.  This is my first eyedropper pen, and although I understand the mechanism to fill, I am concerned that using silicon grease may hurt the Maki-e.

 

Anyone with experience on using this pen?

 

Thank you,

Halee

You don't need to use any silicone grease anywhere on the pen. It deals without any additional aid.

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!
