Some Danitrio Love

Recommended Posts

Tame-midori is a sweet colour on a faceted pen. I had a mikado in Tame-midori but it didn't show the green as well as I'd like. Perhaps my wallet is happy that our Winedoc has ceased his enabling.

The uncapped pen is the Octagon, the darker tame-midori pen next to it is a Takumi. It looks more faceted than the Octagon though it is totally round. :headsmack:

 

Thank you for posting! Beautiful pen, well captured in your photos. I know what you mean about the Takumi being round and photographing as though it has facets... the trick of the light/urushi/shinystuff, eh?

 

Interesting what Siv wrote that his Mikado didn't show off the tame-midori as well as he would have liked. Let's here it for facets! *ahem*

Perhaps once he gets his life back so to speak, our Winedoc will post some maddening eye-candy from time to time. In the meantime, there's always those Nakaya mavens tempting away with their recent treasures...

Yes! One day I'll create a Venn diagram to show my fountain pen desires - one of the circles will be for facets, guaranteed. :)

Currently using:Too many pens inked to list, I must cut back! :) I can guarantee there are flighters, urushi, and/or Sheaffer Vac-fillers in the mix!!!

Managed to take some pictures of my tame-midori regular Octagon.

 

Kudos to you, elderberry -- you have captured the beauty of the midori! GORGEOUS photos of gorgeous pens!

Thanks! :embarrassed_smile:

 

@Siv: I know exactly what you mean! That Takumi is really dark too. It looks plain black most of the time - unless it's being held next to black or catches a ray of sunlight (or is being tickled by a flash unit). The Octagon is a bit lighter overall but the facets are what makes it a green pen as opposed to a black pen with a greenish tinge.

I couldn't agree more.

I have already fallen for this one. I have a aka-tame decapod twist in the works.

@Siv, those are great examples of the contrast! Both very beautiful photos, too.

 

(shhhhhh) I sold my Nakaya Piccolo to get the ki-dame! The SO is a better pen for me than the Piccolo. I think if I did have another Nakaya, the Naka-ai or a decapod would be a good choice for moi in one of the tame urushis. But I think I'd go for another Dani first... all that is theoretical because the pen budget is spent!

Me too! I have a decapod twist in a custom color - fingers crossed, it will be in my hands by the end of December.

Julie,

 

Beautiful new pen. Congrats! And, wow -- the amount of other nice images of these pens is wonderful.

Thanks, Thomas, I l-o-v-e it! You'll get to see it in person down the road...happyberet.gif

Is tame-midori "shiny"? It sure looks like that from the pictures posted. Almost like foil glazed over by urushi...

 

Not sure if I'm understanding your question right, but the colour is not shimmering. It will stay the same from any angle, though it can still look widely different depending on how much light is available.

There are pens that sport a gold foil pattern or gold lacquer drawing beneath the Urushi, those will shimmer when the pen is looked at from different angles.

Yeah, my question was whether it was relfective/shimmery. Sorry for the ambiguity :roflmho: and thanks for answering!

I finally got some (slightly) better photos of my Short Octagon! No writing samples, but a certain Hakumin pen was also hanging out, just waiting around for its siblings to arrive:

I'm going to take some more photos tomorrow, hopefully :)

Your S.O. has the artist signature on the section! Mine is towards the barrel end. Do you know the artist's name? The artist who did all 3 of my pens was Kosetsu (Tatsuya Todo).

Julie, I was so happy to get it I never even checked out the signature :) - I'll see what I can find out!

Kevin will tell you. Unless someone else reading this thread recognizes the signature? happyberet.gif

 

Beautiful pen, Josh. Love it.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen. 
    • A Smug Dill
      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..
    • A Smug Dill
      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o
    • adamselene
      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
