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 Emperor collection from 15 November 2020. Coming in November.

Dear Builder community, I'm a fountain pen collector, and avid fountain pen user. I use all of my pens, even the pricey ones. I'm also a DIYer and want to construct my first fountain pen. I have some ideas and drawings for more complicated pens, but I wanted to start out with something very simple: A PVC fountain pen. I want to take some small-gauge 1/4" PVC for the body and a larger gauge for the cap; maybe 3/8" or 1/2". I need to figure out how to get them to screw together. My first design will be an eye dropper, where I use a screwed fitting to seal the other end of the PVC pipe body and cap. I'll remove some PVC from the barrel to form the grip section, and screw in a nib/feed/nib collar into the PVC. Has anyone tried this before? Am I missing something, or is this a bad idea? Tom
ARVA posted a topic in Paper and Pen ParaphernaliaI decided to take some pictures while I was making a simple pen box for my father's birthday. I was so happy when I found a Parker 45 (that was in great aesthetic and functional condition) for my father's 45th birthday. But there was no box so I needed to make one myself. If you want to give away fountain pens without a box, maybe this simple tutorial can help you. I managed to finish this box under one hour and I spent nothing, every material and tool that I used was found at home. 1. Materials needed: - coloured cardboard - some kind of foam (polystyrene, thick cardboard, etc) - piece of old paper (for the greeting card) - any kind of textile - a few pins - short leather strip (or any other material that you think will work) 2. Tools needed: 3. Making the cutting plans for the box (dimensions in centimetres): 4. The bottom part cut and prepared for folding: 5. The bottom part folded and prepared for glueing: 6. Top part cut and prepared for folding: 7. Top part folded and prepared for glueing: 8. Cut the foam to the interior dimensions of the bottom part: 9. Cut the groves in the middle of the foam with the sharp blade, two cuttings at an angle of 45 degrees: 10. Take the piece of textile and cut it to the dimensions so it covers the foam. After it is positioned fix it to the foam using some pins. Install the leather strip in the same way: 11. Take the greeting card, write whatever you want in it and glue it in the inside of the top cardboard piece: (the inscription 'Boldog születésnapot' means Happy birthday in hungarian) 12. Put the top part on the bottom part and you're finished : I know it is nothing special or fancy, but it is simple, cheap and fast to make if you need a basic gift box. Hope I was helpful for somebody. Have a nice day!
