    Namiki Rakucho and Cherry Blossom

    Namiki 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 Sakuragawa, cherry bark structure, evoked as a background on the barrel, is created using the Oh-Hi-Nuri, a traditional way of painting cherry blossom bark.

    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
  5. Hello all, hope you and yours are doing well during these odd times. I am reevaluating my ‘desirables’ list of pricier fountain pens and attempting to narrow down my choices a good deal. For example, I’ve recently removed the Montblanc l’Aubrac after finally getting a chance to try one and being disappointed by the slippery metal section. (Why, Montblanc? Also, why do I trick myself into thinking I won’t mind it, every time?) The basis for my pruning of the list is that I want a pen I can use. I write a lot, usually for several hours everyday. I’d told myself that this ought to limit my qu
  6. Here is a brief review of a double concentrated Pilot Blue-Black ink. A prelude. Or a kind of I have always been fascinated with this ink. For a bunch of reasons except one: it is rather lifeless. Then I used it in my modern Duofold (with the damn hole in the cap causing evaporation) and found out this ink can be gorgeous with a lot of gravitas, beautiful shading and some sheen... if evaporates a bit. Pilot Blue-Black standard concentration properties summary A couple of positives of this ink (in the normal 100% concentration): 1) VERY cheap if you get a 350ml bottle from Japan, it costs t
  7. Hi everyone, I was hoping someone could help me. I bought a black Namiki Emperor with an M nib (foolishly) before researching some writing samples. Having looked at some now I would prefer to get it with an FM nib. Does anyone know what Namiki’s policy/procedure is on doing this? The seller is looking into it as well but is short staffed due to coronavirus, and getting a response is taking a long time, all the while the pen is sitting unused in its box and packaging, which is very sad! Thanks!
  8. I am doing some research on this, and there are only a handful examples that I have found. Obviously the best way to have a more comprehensive overview is to have the same person with the same ink to do a writing comparison between the available nibs, but this is a bit of a stretch-out scenario. So, could you please upload some writing examples with your nib sizes, I am more interested in the F (Fine) and FM (Fine Medium) region. Intend to use it, as an note taking instrument. Although the F is not being manufactured any more from Pilot/Namiki, the FM has taken its place. Any help would be ver
  9. 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 Yukari Lim Ed Daruma

    Namiki dedicated a Yukari Limited Edition fountain pen to a Japanese lucky charm: The Daruma Doll. The Japanese doll Daruma is inspired by the monk Bodhidarma, the founder of Zen Buddhism. According to the legend, he spent nine years meditating in front of a wall, which cost him his eyelids and limbs. Today Daruma is a good luck charm for those who wish to succeed, and each color represents a particular field. Yellow is for monetary fortune; blue will enhance your success, red keeps you and your family safe, green stands for good health, and black will bring chance in your life. We hope th

    Pilot Soft Nibs

    Hi! I'm planning on buying my first "premium" fountain pen. I'm currently set on getting a Pilot Custom Heritage 91 (or Custom 74, but I suppose it doesn't matter much since the nibs are interchangeable). I'm pretty sure about what model and what finish I want to get, but I just can't decide on the nib size. I don't have any experience with Pilot fountain pens, or any Japanese fountain pen for that matter. I'm used to writing with western fines and mediums, so I thought a Japanese FM would be a good choice. I want to go fine or maybe finer than a western fine, but I don't want a nib that

    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
  15. I have a con-70 that came with my Namiki Bamboo. It's nice that it has a larger capacity (0.7ml) than most converters. However I'm not a fan of the pump mechanism that blows some ink back into the bottle, and also can sometimes spray / create bubbles. It works fine, but can anyone suggest an alternative converter, that has a conventional screw mechanism that will fit the Bamboo? I beleive the CON-70 fits the Pilot Custom. I don't need the 0.7 ml capacity, given the little writing I do at work. Thanks!
  16. The Namiki Emperor Mandarin Duck is an ode to love. It is adorned with a couple of Mandarin Ducks lovingly and peacefully swimming on a pond bordered with reeds and flowers, in a decor of colorful maple leaves. Mandarin Ducks are the only duck species that mate for life. Once they find a partner, they remain a couple until their death. If one dies, the other one often disappears soon after. In Asia, they are a symbol of love, fidelity, and marital happiness. In Japan, they are a lucky charm and often gifted as a wedding present. Namiki released The Emperor Mandarin Duck in 2007. It is kep

    In May 2019, the Crown Prince Naruhito has acceded to the throne, and it is in his honor that Pilot Group has created this commemorative fountain pen, in high relief, made by the famous artisans of Kokkokai school. In stock! https://www.sakurafountainpengallery.com/en/boutique/detail/namiki-yukari-phoenix-limited-edition The pen is presented in a box of paulownia wood, in the same octagonal shape as the imperial throne. Beautiful pen in a remarkable shaped box. This one stands for good luck! Sincerely, Catherine
  18. This is my first Namiki Nippon Art series pen. I like my Pilot Seirei-nuri pen so much I went for the Namiki branded sibling in the Nippon Art Golden Pheasant. This pen is billed as being hira maki-e and is produced, and is signed by the Pilot/Namiki workshop. For the price somehow I doubt this is 100% hand done, but it does not really matter. It is an urushi craft, I like the big beautiful design, and it writes very nicely indeed. The writing experience is very similar to the preternaturally perfect Seirei-nuri but the Namiki comes with a CON-70 converter and a Namiki branded nib. Otherwise,

    How To Remove Namiki/pilot Maki-E Pen Clip?

    For Namiki/Pilot no.5 size(such as many Nippon Art) fountain pen (you can see a gold metal ring in this pen end) it has the similar body type as pilot 74 or 912, you can directly screw it and it can disassembly easily. But for Namiki/Pilot No.20 size pen its structure is so complex that I cannot find a way to screw. However, I still want to know the way to disassembly Namiki/Pilot No.10 size(such as yukari type) pen cap and clip, is any way can find out or any tool can be recommended?Thanks a lot!
  20.

  22. A wait longer than words can define, an Emperor in Red singing a glistening rhapsody, and then a Yukari dazzling in Royale Red glory. The pens, an encompassment of elegance of words, combined with precision of maki-e artisans have been unsurpassed. The Yukari did anxiously waited in my hands to have it's first sip of ink and I had same thoughts with what if clauses! Before getting the Yukari, this is a must read-review by FPNer shuuemura, which is a rather poetic series of pictures with practical words, comparing two pilot beauties in black urushi.

  23. Pilot Namiki Falcon Collection Fountain Pen Extra Fine Nib Black/Rhodium currently on offer on Amazon.com.au for A$177.16, sold and shipped by Amazon US, so customers with Prime membership get free international shipping to Australia. I don't think I've seen the EF-nibbed Namiki Falcon at such a low price before. This has hit almost the previous low point for the Fine-nibbed rhodium trim model, and usually the EF-nibbed model is significantly more expensive. I was watching it for the past several months, and it has always been above A$220. I just snagged the last one that was in stock, but y
