I have no idea what you are talking about but congratulations (and perhaps a picture so I can get jealous)?

No camera sadly. I have pics that Ernest sent me but can't post em...on a cellphone.

The pen is an Edison Mina Extended and the technique is a Kuro Tamenuri in high gloss polish.

 

Here are some photos:

The clipless Mina Extended is perfectly suited for a urushi treatment. What neat design!

 

Thanks for the pics sjm1123!

 

Still waiting for a thorough review complete with pics and writing sample. :)

 

Cheer and enjoy!

Beautiful pen!

 

Would I be correct in assuming that the nibs of the Edison/Hakumin Urushi pens are interchangeable with those of the regular Edison Pen line (excepting the Mina, of course, which has a smaller nib)?

Yup. All Edison nibs are interchangable except the Mina and Extended Mina.

That is a lovely pen, and a marvelous work of art. It looks like some serious competition for Nakaya and Danitrio.
Yup. To my eye the urushi work on this pen is a little nicer than what i've seen on a previous Nakaya i've owned...but that's just my opinion. Don't want to start a flame war.

Holy smokes, that's an Edison!! Fantastic looking pen. :thumbup:

heraclitus682, I might have to agree with you, from the photos, that's as nice a gloss as any other comparable finish I've seen.

JELL-O, IT'S WHATS FOR DINNER!

I just contacted Ernest about doing something similar to a Herald I have. I think this guy is going to be BIG in the pen world.

Let's see if I've got this figured out. You bought an Extended Mina from Edison Pens, and either you or Edison shipped it to Japan for urishi treatment. I'm assuming you have to have chosen an ebonite material for urishi to be done on. Is that correct? Do you have an contact email to share for the urishi work? I'd like to contact the artist about doing something for me. TIA, Jim
