The Nakaya Pen Event 2019 at Sakura Fountain Pen was an absolute success! Close to 100 fountain pen aficionados visited the Sakura Fountain Pen Gallery to see Nakaya’s lead designer and nib meister Yoshida-San at work. The online pen community from the BeNeLux and far beyond was well-represented, and our store quickly turned into a cozy and fun meeting of like-minded souls that all speak the same language: nibs, nib-meistering, urushi, inkflow, lettering, Tomoe River, … Full of wonder and respectfully, we gazed at Yoshida-San swift and accurately tuning a nib or creating a crisp stub with extra ink flow.

Wow. That looks like a great event. With chocolate, even!

 

I am impressed to see the very simple tooling that Yoshida-San uses - no Dremel, no fancy jigs, just the sharpening stones and vast experience. If you have another event like this I'll have to see if I can make it over from Paris.


Too many pens, too little time!

I Wolldecke like to thank for this epilogue and especially for this great day.

I repine long Time with me of it be worth the Long trip for me from middle of germany, but at the end the curiosity wins..... the chance to meet People of Nakaya in europe is really raren and I have an Nakaya with a boring writing music nib .....

It was a great event! Catherine and her team where so nice and do everything to spoil the visitors.
To see all the wonderful Nakaya in reality .... I fall deeply in Love with the Piccolo „scary eye“.

Mr. Yoshida tuned my boring music nib on my Negoro in an more expressive stub.

I spend 5 hours at Sakura, talking. Looking, Enjoy food, testing several exotic nibs.
It was one of the highlights in my pen year 2019

Thanks Catherine so much for this experience
