Hi there, Finally, I've done preparation for uploading the English version of "Japanese Famous Fountain Pen Craftsmen (Biographies)", which I had once posted on this forum ! This documentary portrays the craftsmen who carry on the legancy of fountain pen production against a backdrop of detailed work and processes. From now through the end of this year, I'll upload and introduce 8 master fountain pen craftsmen one by one : Kiyoshi Kato (Kato Seisakusho Company), Harumi Tanaka (Hakase Fountain Pens), and Katsumi Kawakubo (Kawakubo Fountain Pens), who use potter's wheels for fountain pen production ; Hiroyoshi Kubota (Yamada Fountain Pens), master of delicate ornamentation ; Kohei Kubo (Kubo Workshop), who repairs pen nibs using metal processing technology ; Katsuhiko Kubo (Nakaya Fountain Pens) and Eizo Fujii (Euro Box), versatile craftsman able to handle a wide range of repair work ; and Nobuhiko Moriyama (Fullhalter), a craftsman skilled in the art of adjusting pen nibs to suit the unique writing styles of their owners. Incidentally, I'll upload each video at random and at random times on this topic . So, please check here occasionally for the new episode ! Ultimately, BIOGRAPHIES aims to function as a record of the spirit and techniques behind the creation, use, and popularization of the fountain pen by featuring the actual voices of the craftsman and footage of each engrossed in their work. Plus, this time, I would like to introduce "Additional Chapters" of this video with English subtitles as well. The video provides a glimpse into the techniques involved in the creation of fountain pens and the Japanese craftsmen who carry on the legacy of their production. The importation of fountain pens into Japan began during the Meiji Period, and their domestic production became possible during the Taisho Period. The technique of deftly shaving down a piece of material to create a pen barrel on a tool similar to a potter's wheel is at the heart of Japanese fountain pen production. This work follows the entire fountain pen production process, from the fashioning of the cap and barrel from ebonite, wood, and celluloid and the attachment of the nib and grip to the adjustment and repair of the nib for the smooth writing of Japanese characters. It also explores polishing methods ; techniques for long-lasting and breathtaking ornamentation, repair, all of which have helped support the world of Japanese fountain pens. Ultimately, the ADDITIONAL CHAPTERS aims to document the modern art of writing with the exquisite tool that is a fountain pen as well as the spirit and techniques that are poured into the creation of each and every one one. If you have an interest in this topic, I'll be really glad as Japanese.
