  1. This was an impulsive purchase on ebay, I put in an idle bid and to my shock, won. Consider this review as an extension of my review of the Izumo #28 Akatame. The Platinum Izumo is offered in three broad types today. Ebonite with Makie on it, Ebonite with Urushi coating in three colors: Red, Green, Black and finally in Iron wood (Tagayasan) with a Urethane coating (NOT Urushi), here again two finishes are offered, Glossy and Matte. The pen under review is the glossy finish one. Model No: PIZ-50000T #21 in F point. The Izumo is sold gift wrapped in a special brown wrapping paper, and this is how I received the pen. The converter is not included with the pen so it was placed externally. The unwrapping: http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/PlatinumIzumoTagayasan/IMG_9019.jpg http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/PlatinumIzumoTagayasan/IMG_9021.jpg Bubble wrap removed: http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/PlatinumIzumoTagayasan/IMG_9023.jpg The tag outside the gift wrap to help the shop identify the goods: http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/PlatinumIzumoTagayasan/IMG_9024.jpg Gift wrap removed: http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/PlatinumIzumoTagayasan/IMG_9025.jpg Tag on the outer box: http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/PlatinumIzumoTagayasan/IMG_9026.jpg The Distinctive Paulownia box with Izumo on it: http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/PlatinumIzumoTagayasan/IMG_9027.jpg Finally the pen: http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/PlatinumIzumoTagayasan/IMG_9028.jpg The paraphernalia: http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/PlatinumIzumoTagayasan/IMG_9030.jpg Some background about the materials: The wood is from the Dalbergia latifolia tree, a native of India thus special to me. It is also known as Indian Rosewood or Malabar Rosewood or Bombay Blackwood. (Bombay happens to be my city, I am curious how this wood got the Bombay name ) http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/PlatinumIzumoTagayasan/IMG_9056.jpg The pen: http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/PlatinumIzumoTagayasan/IMG_9031.jpg The pen is very dark, looked nearly black at first glance. But the grain pattern is there and is very nice.
