  2. I've not posted here for a while on what I've done so far. But here is my latest one. I'm not sure how many times I have thoughts about abandoning this project but was finally able to get there! The pen that took around 6 months to completion due to long wait required for curing between each pieces of raden and the complex curves on the pen body which shaped like zeppelin. Pen is Oldwin classic oversize in ebonite completely covered with cracked raden technique where raden is broken on the pen body.

  3. Here are pics of my latest pen, the Sailor King of Pen with Sakura Nagare maki-e. Lots of raden and gold dust. My 6 year old daughter really likes it. I really like it. Has a broad nib. Writes okay if I give it some pressure at a lower angle than what is natural for me. Need to work it myself or perhaps seek out a nib meister although usually do my own nib work for the past decade or so. While the writing performance is not ideal for me the pen is still a stunner and after adjustment should make for an excellent pen because the KOP is an excellent pen. Packaging is premium and everything ab

    My Urushi Workshop

    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.
  5. Here is my new Pelikan M1000 Raden Green Ray. This pen was announced to some fanfare. Certainly, the pen deserves some fanfare. As an M1000 it makes a statement as a flagship writing instrument and as a maki-e M1000 it becomes art. What is missing, however, is a story. There is no backstory, no narrative of the conceptualization. The artist remains obscure. The techniques a mystery. Much of that is not unusual for maki-e work, but this is 2020 and brands need to tell stories. Made in only 400 copies due to the nature of material and technique each is really a piece unique. My is 333 making it

    Is This Platinum ?

    While I am looking for a platinum FP ....I found this one on ebay https://www.ebay.com/itm/Japan-Platinum-Special-Edition-Raden-with-Gold-Trim-Fountain-Pen-PBA-1600/132844031325?var=432146709412 I haven't heard about it before and I haven't found any information about it in the internet is it fake ?
  7. Manu Propria is the atelier of Martin Pauli of Berne, Switzerland. Martin is a serious student of Japanese urushi styles and techniques and a highly skilled artisan. His pens are all handmade by him alone, thus his brand name which translates to "my own hand." I received my first of Martin's pens just today, and I am delighted with the aesthetics, the quality of workmanship and the ergonomics of this gorgeous pen. I want to share a few photos, just because I think the pen is so exceptionally beautiful. I am aware that I am posting this in the Japan-Asia forum, and that Switzerland in in E
  8. This is my new Platinum Izumo Aurora raden maki-e with broad nib. This pen was released in 2016 officially named the Hon-urushi Raden Maki-e Aurora with magnificence of natural phenomenon drawn on the body in traditional maki-e style. Link to the press release. The raden work on this pen is amazing and dazzling in equal measure. The large size of the inlay and the large size of the pen ensure this blazes from across the room. There are several shell colors including yellow that for some reason I find really appealing probably because it seems less common. As we know the pen is large and does n
  9. Here is my most recent bird purchase, a Pelikan Souveran M605 custom urushi raden maki-e. Actually, it's been a spell since I purchased a Pelikan. I've been deep into Japanese urushi pens for a long time now. I've many Pelikan pens and I've undervalued them personally for some time. Most sit unused but this pen reminded me that first and foremost Pelikan pens are just good pens overall. So, anyway, Michael at Dromgoole's in Houston had sent a flock of Pelikan pens over to Japan for some custom urushi work. I reckon I've seen most of the resultant pens and to be honest the results were mixed. T

  12. I can not write a pen review with my poor English. I can only share pictures of my pen. The Parker Centennial Duofold with Raden work on it. And... this mystery Duofold doesn't have rings. Ha!

    Namiki Raden Line Question

    So, I've been checking a lot of Raden pens recently, and found that I like the Yukari Nightline series very much due to the raden distribution and the sprinkled gold dust patterns. After much searching the net, the current version being marketed was not much to my taste due the ''black lines'' across the Raden which I felt detracted from the patterns, Picture from nibs.com I've been looking for this particular version, but I can't seem to find a name or model number per se, just that it's an older edition of the pen, which makes looking for it a bit hard. Pictures fro
  14. Hi! I don't have any Japanese pens yet, and I'd like to change that! I like shiny, blingy things, and the Pilot/Namiki Vanishing Point in the various Raden designs http://www.gouletpens.com/PN60590_p/pn60590.htm as well as the Platinum Galaxy Maki-e have all caught my eye http://nibs.com/PlatinumMakieGalaxy.html. The third pen I'm eying up is the Platinum Izumo Urushi (in Akatame red) http://nibs.com/Platinum-President-Izumo-Dark-Red.html (While not 'blingy', there is something about this pen that really grabs my attention. A subtle intensity I guess. I would love some input from those
