    Hello From Macau,....where?

    Hello Pen Friends! First, thank you all for sharing your knowledge, I have been referenceing your information for a long time, it has been a great help. I have decided to go deeper into the hole and share what I know and find. While I currently work and live in Macau, I travel extensively in Asia and especially Japan. After using fountain pens for some years, I am getting into vintage pens especially Japanese vintage. Pen_Padawan

    Danitrio Has A New Finish : Kama-Nuri !

    Some new Danitrio pens arrived with a new finish : the Kama nuri ! It is a techniek developed by the Danitrio artisans. It finds some similarity in the Kamakura-bori and Cho-Shitsu techniques. The result is a beautiful handmade structured surface. Available on Genkai, Sho-Genkai and Mikado. http://www.sakurafountainpengallery.com/en/boutique/detail/new-kama-nuri-red-genkai All welcome to take a look at these pens ! Catherine
  3. Why do the clips of Japanese pens hang below the finial ring? On Montblanc Meisterstucks, for instance, the clip is attached the finial ring. But on similar Japanese pens, like the Sailor 1911, Platinum 3776, and Pilot Custom series, it looks like the clip is punched into the cap below the finial ring, making the ring purely decorative. This makes less sense and is less aesthetically pleasing to me, but maybe I’m missing something. Is there a reason for it?

    Why All In One Sub-Forum

    In need of a little forum history here. Why are the Japanese "Big Three" (Pilot, Sailor, Platinum) mixed into one sub-forum, whereas the "Teutonic Trinity" (Montblanc, Pelikan, Lamy) divided into 3 sub-forums?
  5. Sailor Chalana- the cutest little pen! Hello folks, I got this tiny pen a while back, and as I couldn´t find many review of it I decided to make one. So, bit of history first ( mine, not the pen´s ): The first time I saw one of these was at Fountain Pen Hospital, in NYC. I thought it was really cute, but such was the amount of pen porn around I barely gave it a second glance. Months later, I saw it online again and found myself gazing longingly at it. After a long period of indecisiveness, I ended up buying it from Nibs.com. Customs took their usual month+ to release it, and it was final

    Maki-E Classes In Tokyo

    Hi, Some of you know me by name, some of you know me by face. My name is Matt, I work at Ito-ya in Ginza. Everyone on this forum has been extremely helpful and insightful over the last few years. I am not promoting anything for my company, but I would like to ask for your opinions and advice on an event that I am trying to plan for our main store in Tokyo. During the summer, on weekends, I would like to hold a Maki-e class in English for the many foreign customers that visit our store. In the past, we have held Maki-E classes for our Japanese customers, but Japanese people do not seem to

  8. Last year July, I received an email from Hakase that sandalwood pen model 52230 had been shipped. The significant day is 14 July 2012. As you know, Hakase pens are not to be bought from stock, but made to order. I ordered this particular pen on 14 October 2010. Almost a two year wait before the pen was delivered, so perhaps it is not too bad to have one year after delivery a review.... It is one of the 50 pieces produced. Mysore Sandalwood I go regularly to Chennai, so I am familiar with sandalwood. Sandalwood is rather expensive wood, and harvesting sandalwood is heavily regulated by th
