  1. My Hakase event write-up: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/333737-hakase-event-at-kens-cafe/ Since my initial order, I changed the pen model as well as changing from a postable pen to a non-postable one. Model: gw15f -> gw15d with long waterdrop clip --~~-- Initial thoughts: Heavier than I expected. The pen has a substantial feel to it. Nicely balanced in my hand also. The threading is well done. The nib facing upwards lines up with the barrel nipple. Interesting choice of cap to body threading: when the clip and nipple line up to cap to pen, the following is made. I sup
  2. In the past I I read with interest write-ups about one's collection. I thought to share mine as I am reflecting on the hobby. I have been heavily invested into fountain pens since 2005. Do not ask me why. I just got the bug. Initially focused on collecting, then in more recent years trying to find the perfect writers. I think I can now narrow down my inseparable fountain pens into the following 15. Let me share with you what makes them special to me. I will start from the left: 1. Visconti Ripple in Blue Silver (BB Palladium nib): this is a classic early model from Visconti (not t

    My First Hakase

    This is by no means a review. Just some quick pictures from the phone camera. On 22nd November 2016, I emailed Hakase while traveling, requesting them to make a pen for me. On 28th November 2016, after coming back from the trip, I emailed them my order form. Waiting period was a little more than 13 months at that time so my pen would be with me by 1st week of January 2018. The model was WT15D, Tortoiseshell with Buffalo Horn. Today, then pen arrived. A bit late than the promised delivery date, but that was me traveling again and not able to receive the pen. Yamamoto San kindly agreed to
  4. http://i.imgur.com/R9qfTpB.jpg *I apologize for the poor quality iPhone photos taken in my poorly-lit apartment -- I'll borrow a dSLR to get some decent ones before I do a full review. After 13 months my Hakase is finally here! Since I ordered it last December, I've been anxiously awaiting this little ebonite barrel with a cocobolo shell. My model is called CW15C, which stands for cocobolo wood, large size nib, flat-top and solid 14kt pyramid barrel stopper band (no plating here!) For those unfamiliar with Hakase, I'd highly recommend watching the Masters of Fountain Pen series video on Haru

    Hakase Pen Purchase Help

    Hi, Feel free to call me mad/idiot/foolish etc, but I am planning to purchase a Hakase some time in the next 2 months, placing the order for one that is. I got my Nakaya barely 2 weeks ago, which will prompt you to use the adjectives i mentioned above. I was initially not planning to make this thread but the Hakase catalogue is really confusing, for me at least. They have the following pens: 1. Tortoise Shell - Not possible since the maker won't ship and i don't want any animal to die because of this. 2. Rose Wood Burl Urushi Coating - I understand that this has urushi applied over it,
  6. This is my first review on the Fountain Pen Network and I still consider myself a fountain pen notice since I have only been using them for a little over a year. So please bear with me as I stumble through this review. I received my Hakase fountain pen on or about April 27, 2016. I ordered the pen in early July 2015. So its taken approximately ten months for me to receive my pen. I believe that this wait time is standard for a Hakase. That didn't make the amount of time I had to wait any less excruciating as all I could do was fantasize about my pen. I am not a patient man. My Hakase
  7. Hi Guys, I have a question about Japanese design, i.e., what do Japanese people actually like in a pen? I'm getting more and more interested in Japanese design and from what I can see, there seems to be a certain "dicothomy" in design styles, not just in terms of pens. In a way, it seems to me that there is something that we "Westerners" like and associate with Japanese design, namely, the minimalist-looking, Zen-ish stuff such as this, this, or, to stay in the field of pens, this, or, more broadly speaking, this kind of aesthetics. This seems to be reflected in a lot of high-end Japanese
  8. There is a wise catch-phrase coined by the seminal 90s British sitcom Spaced. "Skip to the end." And so I will: This is the single best pen I have ever owned, ever held, ever used. It is so good that it has made me believe - maybe just a little bit - in the old, oft-told myth of The One Pen. There. Good. I uttered the sacrilegious words. Now that they are free and I am free too we can backtrack a bit (as I take a deep breath) and I can attempt to explain how this little cylinder of rosewood, ebonite and gold caused the furnaces of hell to freeze to ice. As some of you will remember, th

    Which Hakase To Order ?

    Dear FPN friends, Last week I received my first Hakase: NJ10B New Green Celluloid. WOW ! Having an Ohasido, two Nakaya’s, a Fred Faggionato, a Platinum Izumo and several MB’s, I thought I had some experience with good pens. Was I surprise after filling my Hakase with their dark Sepia Ink: amazing. The smoothness is beyond believe. Needless to say that the craftsmanship of Mr. Ryo Yamamoto is impeccable. The pen is perfect from every angle, nothing and absolutely nothing I can find that might indicate even the smallest imperfection. I had the pen made 1 cm longer, for me the pen feels perfect
  11. So, after individually reviewing two of my three Hakases (buffalo horn and rosewood), my Romillo Nervión and my custom Nakaya, I feel it is time to draw together some disparate threads. For many, the prospect of a fully custom pen is both alluring and daunting. With so many options the process seems fraught with danger, and the reassurance of an off-the-peg alternative, liberally reviewed and photographed here on the forum, turns the 'maybe' into an eternal 'maybe next time'. So here I will attempt to remove the mystery from the process, to shine a light on these three well-known if enigmati

    Hakase Cocobolo Flat-Top

    Hakase Cocobolo Flat-top The Hakase Cocobolo resting in its paulownia box. The calligraphy on the box is done by the mother of the current owner of Hakase, Ryo Yamamoto. Yamamoto-san is the grandson of the original founder of Hakase. Introduction As a lover and user of Japanese pens, owning a Hakase pen has been my goal for the longest time ever. Ever since I read reviews of this brand four years ago, I fell in love with the mystique of a small family-owned shop on the west coast of Japan churning out hand-turned custom pens, one every day. They have no distributor and in order to purch

    My Visit To Hakase

    A month ago, at 4:10 on a very chilly morning in Tokyo, I got into a taxi for the quick ride through traffic-less streets to Haneda for a 6:40 flight to Tottori, capital of the least populous prefecture in Japan. I have been a loyal customer of Hakase for the past few years, and decided personally to pick up my two new additions to the collection so that Ryo Yamamoto, the owner of Hakase and the current pen maker in a company started by his grandfather, could tweak the nibs and make any last-minute adjustments. This was the pretext. Of course, I was also curious to see Tottori for myself be
  14. 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
