    Japanese Pen Brag Page

    Greetings all, Do we have a "Japanese pen brag page" , like the "What Parker are you using this day?" page or the Pelikan "Whats the most recent addition to the flock?" page. A interesting brag page is the "Whats the most recent MB purchase?" These pages allow us to share our enthusiasm, joy and pride with a community that appreciates and supports and even encourages this compulsive behavior. Pens need not be exotic or expensive, pictures are whatever can be achieves with what at hand. And the reason I ask...... I just adopted this Sailor Denshiro and wanted to share this beautiful pen with all who love Sailor pens. The material used for the barrel is wild cherry tree bark, a traditional material used by the Samurai. This work is only done in one town in Japan, Kakunodate, located in Senboku District, Akita Prefecture. Few have the skill to preform this work but for 5 generations the Fujiki Denshiro company has been making items from the bark. They made the barrels for Sailor and so proudly, Denshiro is engraved next to Sailor on the cap-band and the pen become its namesake. What I love about Japanese pens it the harmonious blend between atheistic sensitivity and technical performance. Here we have the traditional craft of the Samurai, with Nobuyoshi Nagahara's masterful nib design, brought together to a balance of beauty and function. My thanks goes to all the craftsmen for their relentless pursuit of perfection. http://www.maryhatay.com/Mark/Fountain-Pens/Mixed-Pens/i-Vj6kKD4/0/X2/sailor%20denshiro-X2.jpg
