Hi,

This thread is for people to post their Nakaya and Platinum. It does not need to be a fountain pen, pencils, erasers, boxes, refills are all nice. Old advertisment pictures are nice too.

I will start with a welcome banner. It does not need to be a very good picture, just about any picture will do



From left to right, Platinum Auto eraser, (kind of like a mechanical pencil that puts out eraser), Platinum Honest 66, Nakaya and converters, then vintage ink cartridges, finally a case and papers.

Dillon

A couple of low-end Platinums from speerbob: black stripe and brown stripe, with a little flex in the 14k xf nibs.

Love 'em.

Ok, More pictures.

A closeup on the eraser:


中屋 The color does not come out right. It is more coffee colored.







プラチナホネスト (Platinum Honest)



Body imprint



By the way, I did not choose the color and style of the 中屋, but I like the way it writes very much, so I have it inked all the time. It's more of a light coffee color and does not look very yellow, but the camera has a hard time taking a picture of it. I took two pictures, with flash and without flash and it is closer to the with flash picture. I'd like to take a picture of the nib of the Platinum some time. I'll see what I can get.

Your wife is a very lucky woman. Is she expecting it?

Yes she is... she even tried it (to avoid a late nib swap) and her face looks like cloud9.gif drool.gif blush.gif ... I´m torturing her... ninja.gif

Here is a Platinum P-300 next to an Aurora Talentum. The P-300 nib is remarkably close to a basic Pilot Elite - but the P-300 has a clear transparent feed! Nifty!

Two Platinum pens: the Platinum Aurora, and Platinum Kan Tin. The first is a stunning maki-e pen. Whenever I get bored at a meeting, I can take this pen out, and admire it under different angles. The second one is an unexpecte pen. Japanese pens are better know for their lacquer than for being solid sterling silver. Both Sailor and Platinum have produced silver pens. This one has a Platinum nib. I prefer regular gold nibs, but anyway, it is a great pen. Ruud

I have quite a few Nakaya pens: seven, and then my wife owns one. I had the great opportunity to talk to Nakata-san, and visited their office in Tokyo. Wonderful experiences. Some pictures below. Ruud

beautiful collection Ruud, my question whether Nakaya is not overrated and overpriced.

Grasnted high quality custom pens but the\difficulties involved with all the back and forth unless you are lucky enouigh to buy one personally and have tweaked by one of the Japanese nib meisters at a show or at their Tokyo store, quite cumbersome. Maybe now with lovcal distributors things will improve.

BTW Ruud I think i recognise one or more of those plat beauties in your menagerie. Pleased you're making good and enjoyable use.
