Masters Of The Fountain Pen

I think it is very much an ED filled pen with shutoff valve. at 10:45 he even fills the pen with a bulb fitted to a long nozzle(super capacity eye dropper!)

 

He lubes the shutoff piston holding shaft, holds the shaft with a plier, screws the knob on to the shaft etc...

 

 

Ok, so you're thinking it's like the drawing troglokev did in his Mikata review?

yeah but look at 9:41-9:49, you can clearly see him put something on the end of the rod....

 

on the other hand, at 10:40, you can kind of see the end of the piston and it doesn't look like it seals the barrel like a piston fill

 

my guess is you're right -- it's also the most obvious since the video probably isn't wrong

 

my apologies!

the ED filler with shutoff valve mechanism has two seals. One in the barrel knob end where the shaft enters the barrel and the other at the section. older pens it was simply HR to hr seal, modern pens like Dani trio use a O ring seal here. I think he was putting together the knob end seal, it was quickly edited out in the video.

 

It is definitely the pen type shown by Troglokev. HTH.

In case you wish to write to me, pls use ONLY email by clicking here. I do not check PMs. Thank you.

thanks sharing for the vids :thumbup: :notworthy1: I am very lucky to know a penshop that lets me try the pens I want. Thank again for contributing

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

I think the difference between that store and similar stores (or departments) in America is mainly that department has customers...

 

 

There were people at 1:00, 2:47, 3:03, 3:37, 3:43, 3:51, 4:34 and 4:46 wearing face masks. They all seem to be young women except 1. Are they sick themselves or are they paranoid...

I took this video on January 1st, 2013. You know many of the Japanese visit a shrine on a New Year's Day. So people just wear a mask to avoid the flu.

Oh, wow, no I didn't know. THanks for that, and for shooting the video. Of course this means I now have to visit... see what you've done?!?

We Japanese workers are expected to take extra precautions to stay healthy during the flu season. On the other hand, people in Japan seldom wear masks except during the dry winter months. ( As a matter of course, people suffering from hay fever wear masks in the hay-fever season. ) Please take a look at the video below. In fact, nobody wears a mask because I took this video on May 20th.

You guys are super cute together :)

 

The intrigue over the TSUGE is just too much. I've seen some of your other threads about them, and given my (continuing) obsession with the Sailor Emperor overfeed... I'm interested, to say the least...

Wooow, excellent review, terminal ! Thanks for telling me the nice thread you posted. Of course, I've once collected Sailor enperor series as well. They were all smooth and juicy. I still remember the moment when the nib touched the paper. To say the least of it, Sailor specialty nibs are really fascinating because of their functionalities.

That's so melancholy. I'm very impressed by him and how he's found a way to keep the business going though.
