Japanese Daily Writer


Jezza

Recommended Posts

My poor Sailor...so neglected.

 

My daily writer is my Nakaya Piccolo Aka-Tamenuri, medium stub, soft and flexible. These days inked with Iroshizuku Kon-Peki. I just can't seem to put that one away. It goes everywhere with me.

At home I will also use the Nakaya cigar writer, standard fine nib,[to long to carry, but oh so cool!] Also Aka-Tamenuri. It's just the only color for me. Like Ferrari, only EVER in red.

 

I am sure I will pick up the Pelikan some day....maybe.

Nakaya Aka-tamenuri Long Cigar, standard fine two tone nib/ Nakaya Aka-tamenuri Piccolo, soft medium stub in two tone/ Nakaya Aka-tamenuri Neo Standard, medium cursive italic/ Sailor Pro Gear fine/ Sailor Pro Gear medium cursive italic/ Pelikan M800 extra fine/ 1954 Monte Rosa medium left oblique/ Nakaya Naka-ai, medium left oblique, Heki-Tamenuri/Sailor Realo ll, medium left oblique/ Cross Townsend “Year Of The Rooster” medium/ Pilot Vanishing Point, fine.

Pilot Custom 74 is best pen for daily usebility.

 

Best over all value for the money and best daily writer. I have several in rotation and prefer then over the higher lines.

A gentleman is one who puts more into the world than he takes out.

I like to switch things around and use some older Japanese models. Right now I am using a Platinum Bonita that is doing yeoman duty with writing corrections on a dissertation I am reading.

 

I usually keep one Japanese pen - at least - in rotation. They are such fine writers! :rolleyes:

Using right now:

Retro 51 Tornado Monarch "F" nib running Pelikan Aquamarine

Gioia Parthenope Extra Fine running Diamine Firefly

Visconti Opera Demo "F" nib running Green ink

Right now, I have 5 Japanese pens inked...Pilot Custom Heritage 91 FM, Sailor Procolour 500 F, Sailor Sapporo Mini-slim F, Platinum Pocket pen F, and A Pilot VP with an F nib. :rolleyes: They're all great, but I like the Sapporo and Pilot Custom Heritage the most.

I've recently purchased a Fujisan - Hill fountain pen, made of Maple wood. Nothing is known about this company except manufacture stopped in 1990. Although it's a large pen, i find it very comfortable to use, the nib is definitely not a nail, and it is rapidly becoming my every day writer.

 

 

Kind regards,

I use a Platinum Motosu Demonstrator for daily use... A lovely, clear, converter operated

beauty that is also Limited Edition to 2011 pieces, but I find it really precious and keep

it tucked in my bag most of the time!

My Sailor Profit (large) with an EF nib from Michael Masuyama and #41 Brown. A great daily carry!

A Pilot 78G with M nib. Best price/performance ratio I have had in a pen so far B)

 

My first post here. Hello everyone

I just got a black hairline picolo with fine ruthenium nib with some motishaw tweaking (thanks John ). This is my new go to pen. Couldn't be happier, I love this pen.I rotate between that and my black cigar portable, my mini decapod with the greenish stone finish ef nib and my Namiki stainless dragon f nibWith that said nakaya's are my addiction. If I wasn't clear the first three pens are all Nakaya.

Pilot 78G with a F nib, filled with Noodler's BB. It runs a little dry, but it's perfect for the tiny notes I often scribble in the margins of papers.

Gray Pilot Decimo F with Sailor Kiwaguro. I'd really like to put my Custom 74 SF to more use, but the nib is not quite as foolproof as that of my Decimo (i.e. it's a lot more sensitive to angle and pressure). I'm guessing a vanilla F would be more practical, but less fun to play with.

I've recently settled on a couple of Pilots, a Custom 823 and a Decimo gray, both with Medium nibs. The Decimo has the con-20 convertor, which seems so much more interesting than the standard con-50. I like my Sailor Sapporo with Rhodium trim, also a Medium, which I find very forgiving and compact. I occasionally pull out the Pilot Custom 74 Broad nib, which writes a barely wider line than the 823 M but is a lighter, smaller pen. In most of these pens, I use Iroshizuku Asa-Gao and a few the Yama-Budo.

Boy, this thread has been running a while.........Hm.

 

Since November 3/2011 (my former post) my choice of Japanese daily writers has been a bit altered.

Now there are six identical model Sailor 1911-Ms, in somber colours, with modified nibs.

John Mottishaw & Mike Masuyama have fashioned wonderful edged-nibs (two stubs & four Cursive Italics) with down-strokes from 0.50 mm. to 1.1 mm.

This is what I call my "Writing Kit".

Depending on the ink or paper I'm using, these nibs provide a comfortable range (not too wide & not too narrow). Quoting from the story of the Three Bears: "....Just Right."

All my pens are Japanese & all are daily writers.

*Sailor 1911S, Black/gold, 14k. 0.8 mm. stub(JM) *1911S blue "Colours", 14k. H-B "M" BLS (PB)

*2 Sailor 1911S Burgundy/gold: 14k. 0.6 mm. "round-nosed" CI (MM) & 14k. 1.1 mm. CI (JM)

*Sailor Pro-Gear Slim Spec. Ed. "Fire",14k. (factory) "H-B"

*Kaweco SPECIAL FP: 14k. "B",-0.6 mm BLS & 14k."M" 0.4 mm. BLS (PB)

*Kaweco Stainless Steel Lilliput, 14k. "M" -0.7 mm.BLS, (PB)
