    The Namiki No 50 Emperor Nib

    Some pictures of the no 50 nib found on the Namiki Emperor. http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/Namiki%20Emperor%20Pavilion/IMG_0179.jpg 43.5mm long from tip to heel: http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/Namiki%20Emperor%20Pavilion/IMG_0180.jpg 11mm wide across shoulders: a gigantic nib http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/Namiki%20Emperor%20Pavilion/IMG_0181.jpg http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/Namiki%20Emperor%20Pavilion/IMG_0182.jpg The semi lacquered (urushi)feeder, some descriptions note the feed material as Ebonite, this ex

    New Namiki Emperor Rakucho And Cherry Blossom

    Another new Namiki : the Emperor Rakucho and Cherry Blossom. The Rakucho is an imaginary bird flying in paradise. Represented as a couple, it suggests the hope of a long and happy marriage, accompanied by a mutual desire for eternity. Cherry blossom petals are inlaid with mother of pearl and polished for a refined finish. The cherry bark structure (sakuragawa), evoked as a background on the barrel, is created using the Oh-Hi-Nuri, a traditional way of painting cherry blossom bark. This Namiki Emperor Rakucho and Cherry Blossom is signed by artist Masahiro Yamada and will join the Namiki Empe
  3. Dazzled by the resplendent allure of a Japanese ED (with the concept of a shut-off valve mechanism), the lust for an urushi lacquered pen vis-a-vis plain ebonite ones (seemingly susceptible to lose shine and colour over time) did keep growing on me for some time, before I took this plunge! I have come to know of an unfortunate experience with a Sailor KOP in Ebonite and have felt that without urushi, ebonite just fails to complete itself. These glamorous reviews from shuuemura and rubyeyespenlover should be banned and blamed altogether for pen-monetary crises, which I kept visiting again &

    Namiki Emperor Vermilion Review

    Hello fellow pen enthusiasts, So far I have seen just one review on the internet for this pen and I strongly felt it merited another look. The comments about it being a baseball bat are, though funny and mostly in good humor, about as appropriate as saying Babe Ruth's bat was but a twig to be burned with the chaff. This pen is spectacular, and not just because of it's size. Yes, it sports the #50 nib, which if I understand correctly is the largest production nib around. Yes, its Mount Fuji engraving on the nib is breathtaking to behold, and it also writes smooth as butter. But, seldom have

    Namiki Emperor Le Shoki

    Namiki Emperor Limited Edition 2019 SHOKI. Expected in October but already in stock! In the Edo period, a man appeared to be a brilliant physician, but the Emperor revoked him due to his ugly appearance: long beard with a mustache, big white eyes in a scowling face, dressed in odd clothes. The physician, shocked and embarrassed, killed himself and was sent to the underworld. Since he had skills and potential, he received the task to hunt and scare away evil spirits. Since then, Shoki has been revered as the god who protects from evil spirits and sickness. https://www.sakurafountainpengalle
  6. Hello, I've been a collector of Namiki pens for awhile, and I I just purchased my first Emperor. This is my first eyedropper pen, and although I understand the mechanism to fill, I am concerned that using silicon grease may hurt the Maki-e. Anyone with experience on using this pen? Thank you, Halee

    Battle Of The Big Reds

    Battle of the Big Reds http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5480/11931434345_5ea0b7cbff_b.jpg From top to bottom: Sailor King of Pen in Crimson Urushi, Namiki Emperor in Vermilion Urushi, Namiki Yukari Royale in Vermilion Urushi. They are resting on a Nakaya three-pen pillow in Kuro-Tamenuri Urushi. Introduction In his excellent comparative review of four black urushi pens, rhk had shared with us his opinion of the Namiki Yukari Royale versus the Sailor King of Pen. In yet another great review, rubyeyespenlover had waxed lyrical about the beauty of the Namiki Emperor. Yours truly has reviewed the
  8. A new pen Ive been using recently reminds me of a concept in psychologist Daniel Kahnemans book, Thinking, Fast and Slow. The book starts with the idea that we have two ways of thinking. System 1, the fast way, is instinctual, prone to snap judgments (which are often valuable and sometimes not), and kind of lazy. System 2, the slow way, is methodical, detail-oriented, analytical, and focused. The Ranga Emperor is a System 2 pen. The Emperor is capable, understated, elegant, and precise. The lines, proportions and materials stake the pen at the polar opposite of flash and exhibition. The Em

  10. The 2016 new Namiki Emperor Maki-e Maneki-Neko is now available! The Limited Edition is decorated by Masaru Hayashi, a Japanese artisan, using the Maki-e technique. On the decorations we can find a Maneki-neko, a dressed cat with a lifted paw which symbolizes fortune, good luck and is used as a talisman to keep houses safe. This symbol is created using the Taka Maki-e technique. The fountain pen also features other symbols such as a Senryo-bako, which was used for many years to store gold coins, a mallet of luck and a pine, bamboo and plum tree. All of these figures which adorn the cat's b

    New Namiki Emperor Dragon

    We are delighted to announce a new Namiki Emperor will launch this November 2016. The dragon, is one of Asia's most important mythical creatures and it will be the one to adorn this new version of Namiki Emperor fountain pen. Endowed with supernatural powers, this creature is usually linked to water. This is why we can see one on the fountain pen's cap supposed to go up to attract rain on spring and avoid floods on the fall, thanks to its magic ball also known as Cintamani, a sacred stone that gives power and makes its possessor's wishes come true. The dragon is also known a symbol of fer
  12. I've been reading many helpful reviews here on FPN as I get on my collecting journal, this is the first time I'm posting with a question. Anyone have experience with the Hero 100 "Emperor" 2016 model?, as shown in this ebay posting: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2016-Model-Hero-Emperor-100-Fountain-Pen-12K-Gold-Fine-Nib-With-Box-/331719526737?hash=item4d3c064951:g:nswAAOSwAKxWWcfJ I know that the standard Hero 100's Achilles heel is the plastic hood, which can crack, but it doesn't seem to be an issue with the 2016 model's exposed nib. Also this is a converter pen, which might (?) prolong the lo
