Sorry! Not yet. Please imagine that the color of the urushi becomes deep blue.

That is a stunning pen. If a member on here picks one up it would be great to see a review.

I can't seem to find it on their website or a price indicated on the image uploaded... Anybody know how much it will cost? I know it's not going to be cheap! It is beautiful though.

102,300 yen. I called maruzen yesterday morning and it was sold out, at least my preferred FM nib.

This pen is featured in the latest vol. 52 of Shumi no bungubako 「趣味の文具箱」and yes, I was told by my favourite Singapore pen dealer that he could not get one. It was not listed on Maruzens website or Facebook page either.

That's actually not as much as I was expecting.

This pen will be sold offically next March at the Maruzen penshow. But Maruzen sends out postcards with information about the LEs available at the show to the members of their penclub. You can become member if you bought a pen for 60000 Yen or more at Maruzen.
You can imagine that there is not much time between arrival of that card and a LE pen being prereserved/sold out. Especially, if it is something special. There were also Nakaya/KoP/Eboya pens in that announcement.
