    Wancher X Sailor Japan Blue

    Background Here is a short review (and lots of pictures) of the Wancher Japan Blue limited edition fountain pen. This is a Wancher pen with Sailor base. TLDR - it is a beautiful made, striking pen whcih writes like a Sailor pro gear slim/1911 Std but feels more substantial (in a positive way) in the hand. It is a great collector's item as it is a limited edition, but also a very functional writer. Speaking of being LE, that is somewhat diluted by several repeat runs (I think 3 now). Packaging I personally don't care much for packaging, but a pen of this price probably warrants a good
  2. Wancher has launched a kickstarter for a series of fountain pens with the name Seven Treasures. They are made from Bakelite and feature Shippoyaki; Japanese Cloisonne artwork. Current super early bird reward is at $240 for the basic version with steel nib and plastic feed. Black ebonite feed is an aditional $30 Red ebonite feed is +$50 Gold nib is +$130 https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wancher/seven-treasures
  3. Hello friends, how are you? Please allow me to share with an Urushi technique for fountain pen that I have been working on last three years. It is called 季映塗り or Kieinuri (季映is pronounced /ki ei/ which means seasons reflection) It is real leaf on Urushi and then gold powder and then matt Urushi. The process is double what it takes with making Urushi. In the second picture you can see the leaf veins after steaming and pounding process. Left is Camelia Japonica (さざんか)and right is Holly Olive (ひいらぎ) This is just one third way. Next is to dye with gold powder and continue with urushi coating to
  4. This is my new Wancher Dream Pen True Urushi in midori or green gloss urushi. The Japanese pen with the German (?) sounding name. I ordered this pen in January so it took about 6 months to complete and ship to me. The original promise was for 3-4 months, which seemed unreasonably fast for an urushi pen so I was not surprised or disappointed to be asked to wait another few months. It was worth the wait. The pen started on Kickstarter but I did not back that launch. The options I chose were 18k gold nib (thought gold would go well with the green) in broad size and black ebonite feed, both of whi

    Wancher Chocolate

    There's a pen/stationary store in Japan named Engeika, or something like that. They have a small line of inks under their own brand "Wancher". Like some others I received a sample of a new color Chocolate. visvamitra recently reviewed it as well. This isn't a bad ink at all, but not anything special. It has a milk chocolate kind of look to it that didn't get captured by the images. It has some water resistance which surprised me. It's not like Noodler's water resistant or waterproof inks, though the image looks good some ink was lost. The dye composition of the ink is interesting: purple, gr

    Five Wancher Inks

    As I received samples of all Wancher colors I thought I'll make comparison. Full text of my comparison can be found on Polish fountain pen forum. However you don't have to read it, colors have language of their own. I hope that you'll like it. ASUKA BROWN: nice but dull shade of brown. Too little shading for my taste. http://imageshack.com/a/img834/1547/3d0hs.jpg EBINE VIOLET: this one is really cool. http://imageshack.com/a/img842/6190/bocjz.jpg IMARI BLUE: saturated blue. More than decent. http://imageshack.com/a/img850/2093/qavq.jpg M

    Wancher Imari Blue

    Wancher is a brand offered by Engeika in his shop. First five inks were introduced few years ago and names as a Silk Road series. Packaging The inks come in few kind of bottles. The one I have is a simple, cheaply looking 100 ml bottle. It's not bas as long as tehre's more than half of it. When the ink level decreases it becomes harder to fill a converter pen - the neck is too long and when you want to insert nib and feed into ink you'll have to make your hands disrty. Also some converters and nib/feed assemblies are simply too short for this bottle. Imari Blue isn't particularly

    Wancher Ebine (Red-Violet)

    Received Wancher Ebine last week, loaded it into a Baoer 388 fine and have been using it off and on since then; now it's time for the review. As you can see, Ebine is a dark-ish red-violet color. It's somewhat similar to Yama-budo, except lighter and redder and, of course, no sheen at all. I came across Sandy1's review of Ebine after having bought YB based on dizzypen's comparison of it and Saguaro Wine. Ebine seems to fall squarely between those two - lighter & less purple than YB, darker & less pink than Saguaro. The color itself is pleasant enough (if you like red-violet), bo

    Chocolate - Wancher

    Wancher is a fun brand offered by Engerika in his shop. Chocolate is their new ink. It's rather cheap and quite decent. I'm not amazed by the color but it's cheap and for the price you get good ink. I think it's perfectly reasonable to add one (or other Wancher color) to the order in his shop http://imageshack.com/a/img909/9826/cG6mGG.jpg Ink splash http://imageshack.com/a/img540/7226/6Mcm48.jpg http://imageshack.com/a/img538/7982/XUEDmd.jpg Software ID http://imageshack.com/a/img673/2540/aetRdQ.jpg Waterproofness http://imageshack.com/a/img537/9339/k2NkLu.jpg Oxford recycle
  11. One of my newest accquistions is the Sailor Young Somiko Fountain pen in M nib. This is my first Sailor pen. I had bought it from pensindia.com, a subsidary of the famous engeika.com which provided japanese writing instruments. The service was quick and I was happy with Mr. Raul from pensindia who handles my correspondence promptly. All I can say is I am happy with their product and I will patronise them in the future (Disclaimer: No relation to pensindia.com or engeika.com) PACKAGING The pen comes in a small cardboard pack which houses a plastic pen case. The case contains the pen itself
