That is a ludicrously good looking pen. I hope I manage to forget about it before the time in the distant future I get delusions of being able to afford it :-)

Breathtakingly beautiful pens. Great review.

Thanks - glad you enjoyed the review (as much as I enjoy writing with the pen!) :)

 

I've been considering a long trip to Japan some time. Unfortunately, it just got CONSIDERABLY more expensive. :-)

 

That is a truly gorgeous pen.

If you do go to Japan, only do so with a massive set-aside war-chest. The amount of painstakingly beautiful handmade items you'll discover simply by virtue of walking the streets is astonishing(ly detremental to your bank-account)...

 

Mongrelnomad- thanks for a wonderful review of your extraordinary Hakase pen.

Well, if I didnt have to spend every penny that I own into payments for this damn cancer thing and its aftereffects, I would be ordering a Hakase right now!!!!! :):)

Wolverine - there are things much much much more important than mere pens. Wishing you a quick, full recovery and the best of health. As we Jews like to say: till 120!

A delusion is only one way of looking at the world. I'm sure we can find you another if we try hard enough :lol:

Glad the lack of OBB nibs saves me from a painful second mortgage!

I'm afraid that after I get my buffalo horn I'll want a pterocarpus. I think in out if things to sell. :(

Thanks again! I have a few reviews outstanding, so there'll be more to come (though not, unfortunately, of Hakases... yet)...

So now's not the time to tell you that Mr. Yamamoto will grind any nib to your personal specification :yikes:

 

I'm afraid that after I get my buffalo horn I'll want a pterocarpus. I think in out if things to sell. :(

And when you get the pterocarpus you'll want an ebony, and when you have an ebony you'll want a rosewood, and when you have a rosewood you'll want an ebonite and then when you have an ebonite you'll want a cocobolo, and then when you have a cocobolo you'll want to fly out to Japan and Totori and get a tortoise shell..

 

And then, when you realise there's more than one style of each, you'll start all over again :P

Too many pens; too little writing.

I hate to say it but it's looking like you're going to be right. Flying to japan to get a tortoise shell would be worth the trip alone.

ANY nib size???! (Swoons)

I think the max is 15... but I think it doesnt come with the exotic nibs by Pilot but the soft nibs will be there BUT MAN... no monies but soon Hakase... yes I'll get my Professor made (language reading pun, but it could refer to the founder with the surname Hakase I know what I want I just dont have the 500K Yen needed... or was it 1M Yen... and probably never will be)

I love those roll-stoppers. I've never liked or used clips but then again gravity is a biatch.

I can't seem myself paying this much for a pen (nor for anything except a house or a car), but I'm going to be dabbling in pen turning tor the first time over the next month and this exquisitely-written review has made me think about what I want to achieve and why.

 

So, many thanks, mongrelnomad.

Thanks - yes, my Japanese is non-existent, so all contact has been in English. It is sometimes strained, but usually clear enough...

 

Note that the wait time has once again increased (good times for Hakase, it appears): to 10 months...

I've been reading your review over and over for the last three years,

and everytime it seems like the first time.

Your beautiful description of the pen and the marvelous pictures made my heart lust for a Hakase of my own.

Thank you and Hallelujah!!!!!

Thank you and Hallelujah!!!!!

Praise the Japanese Pen Meistro!!!!!

 

Yours sincerely,

Scott.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
