Dear all,

 

I have 2 Nakaya's, clipless versions Cigar Aka Tamenuri and Piccolo long in Kuro Tamenuri. Both comes from the dealers and now I thinking to personalize them- put my signature in Kanji. This option in Nakaya company available for new orders, but I afraid that it will be too difficult and pricy to send them old Nakaya with inquiry only for maki-e sighature..

May be there are other independent artists who can make (draw) signature in this technique on my Nakayas? 

Thank you in advance for suggestions!

Giedrius,
Perhaps you can try to contact Catherine at sakurafountainpengalery in Belgium to point you to master calligraphers and artist in Kanji on fountain pens.

Don’t know much about major artists or prices... just following this as their designs look good. No affiliation. May be it would provide you more ideas for customisation.

Thank you gary and vikrmbedi!

I contacted them and waiting reply from Mr.Shin and  Urusi Studio BOKUMONDOH. It is only small chance, that their will accept as from disclaimer on urushi studio web side, I understand that their overloaded and prioritizes complex works for new pen. 

Let's wait the answers.

For the best result, would not the personalization need to be done before the final coats of lacquer and its polishing? I am asking this based on the assumption the desire would be for the personalization to not be raised above the level of the rest of the surface of the pen or to have a minimal height increase and to be incorporated/blended into the pen.

It is good remark, Parker51. Thank you.

I will check this point before final order. So long, I don't have final conformations from no one.

Sample size of one:  Ernest Shin applied urushi, aka tamenuri,  to a raw Dani Sho-Genkai. [Thank you Kevin]

 

He also applied kanji in gold on the barrel.  It is raised which, along with the contrasting color, gives a dimensional contrast to the barrel.  It is not prominently raised, but it is above the barrel.

 

Although completely different than our conversation, the ishime finish also has a dimensionality to it.

I would only trust trained maki-e artists with this. There are none in the West. Only Japan. Best to go through Nakaya.

Short update about the status from my side. 

I get confirmation from Catherine at Sakura fountain pen gallery (Belgium) that Nakaya accepted to do personalization for my two Nakaya's and pens already on the way to Belgium, from there their will be shipped to Japan.  I will show final result, when pens will come back to me:)

Many thanks for your advices and Catherine for cooperation to get acceptance from Nakaya. 

Giedrius
