I suppose that would be the Mr Ishimaru mentioned in Macchiato Man's Sailor Ink Studio Overview blog article.
Let's give each other due respect, and approach discussion rigorously. We're all peers and equals here as fellow hobbyists, with common interests in the acquisition and use of fountain pens, but not necessarily any shared values, and no obligation to offer each other moral support for one's narrative or position.

I saw him several times on various occasions but never requested a color. Next time, I will ask him for a perfect red - made by Sailor.
