    My hammered titanium ring, one year on

    From the album: Odds and ends

    The colour reference I was going to use, in my quest for a new personal ‘signature’ ink colour (that was ultimately unsuccessful), looks very different one year on. Only the barest hint of violet sheen remains, and the base colour has greatly lightened in the meantime. I guess the shine wore off, and the honeymoon period is over? Or perhaps it's just par for the course for the year 2020? 😬

    My hammered titanium ring

    From the album: Odds and ends

    My hammered titanium ring, when new, that I was going to use as a colour reference of sorts in seeking a new personal ‘signature’ ink to match. Originally posted here: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/350492-seeking-brown-inks-with-strong-violet-or-purple-sheen/

  3. Background: Went to Itoya to pick up a grail before we left Japan then saw this during the wait: They had the Lamy Anniversary Bauhaus Blue edition but we went for Japan Blue instead. That terrible refrain, "I don't need another pen" follow by the follow-up analysis and sleep over/can't sleep over decision making oscillation worked its way to purchase this fine souvenir. Wanted a remembrance of our 1st time in Japan and this fit the bill: Made in JapanLove of local/regional companies, handcraftedTraditional craft of indigo and hammering metal techniqueIt's a metal Sailor to Oita Made specUniqueI wanted a Medium but the last one was only a Fine and the missus loved it too. I have to share It's more of a family pen Color: Midnight blue purple indigo. Indigenous textiles was another hobby in a past life and the tie in of anodized indigo was a great pull. Visually, it's an eyecatcher and smartphone down-res photography does not do it justice. This is an accurate observation: "...a unique beauty that cannot be explained by photography" My color range is pretty conservative so for Japan Blue to make an impression spoke volumes. The pen was paired with Sailor Shikiori Nioi-Sumire to match the indigo body. My wife has the color instinct as the ink sticker bore no shade resemblance to the actual color swatch which is much darker. Though to my old eyes and the ton of blue ink variants we have, I cannot see the specialness of Nioi-Sumire other than it's the best Sailor match we could see. Material/handling: Hammered aluminum body, light unposted, slightly backweighted posted. Black plastic section is comfortable. I've only handled Classic Pens silver Sailor so if there are other metal Sailors let me know. Thankfully it's not heavy I'm a serial poster but am a little concerned about the design choice of 2 pins to hold the cap in place which posts with a click. I understand the choice over friction fit posting but it is an area for potential flaw should the pins loosen over time. I'll probably be dead before it fails though and luckily it is a great writer unposted. Nib: As stated, it is a Sailor Fine though I am fond of Sailor M at least the KOP version. Japan Blue completes my range: EF, F, MF, M Overall impression: Japan Blue is a great souvenir of our time in Japan whose craft, people and culture is much to be remembered and thankful for. Manufacture is backed by an established company, Sailor and their quality is consistent and reliable.
