The second limited edition KOP in tamenuri: the Midoridame. Mr. Kousen Nishihara-san realized 88 KOP pens in a translucent tamenuri finish. The pen received a deep patina by lacquering the amber-colored suki-urushi over a special middle layer color. The result is a deep moss tone that will lighten and mature with use over time.

Its early August 2020 now, and I just ordered one yesterday. It looks like there are just a couple left on the open market. Sailors marketing of it usually show it with the cap off, displaying its best feature the convergence of shades of brown, green, and gold all nestled in the nib area (the gold nib and brown and green on the barrel just below the nib. Its like cracking open an agate rock and finding a colorful inside. Its hard to pin down whats so pleasing about this combination of colors all in the nib area. The long barrel, otherwise all brown, seems to offset the splash of color and provide a simple, soothing background and base, almost like the stem of a flower. Theres something to be said for the pens appeal being a function of its imitating nature.

Really nice pen. Out of my budget, but I do like the way the colors blend. Rather unique imo.

This is beautiful. But I’m glad it appears to be sold out everywhere - it is too tempting and too expensive,

I wholeheartedly agree


“Many boys will bring you flowers. But someday you'll meet a boy who will learn your favorite flower, your favorite song, your favorite sweet. And even if he is too poor to give you any of them, it won't matter because he will have taken the time to know you as no one else does. Only that boy earns your heart."

 

-Leigh Bardugo, Six of Crows
