jandrese posted a topic in Japan - AsiaHere is my new Sailor Bespoke King of Pen Ebonite Iro-Miyabi Fukaai with broad nib. A most excellent writer with a unique fine stone urushi finish aka ishime-nuri. Fine as in quality but more so in execution; its a fine grained pontilated finish that is pleasantly tactile and mercurial of color. Pictured along with the Sailor is a Nakaya with a much larger grained ishime-nuri finish. The name fukaai refers to dark blue, and it can look that way, but also light blue and greenish blue. Blue is an unusual and modern color for urushi. This pen is most unexpectedly interesting.
Hi, A story is quite typical for me. I get interested in something, the idea "cooks" for some time, and then blow and burns. And get another PhD in something, be it building a car, making DYI cosmetics, grinding nibs, and most recently - URUSHI. Instead of writing to much, I'll show some pictures. Below I'll try to explain what is it all about. My journey is being documented on my Instagram account : https://www.instagram.com/tamenuri_boru/ http://gakko.pl/piora/1.jpeg http://gakko.pl/piora/2.jpeg http://gakko.pl/piora/10.jpeghttp://gakko.pl/piora/11.jpeghttp://gakko.pl/piora/12.
