Platinum Izumo Glossy - Tagayasan

Nice review!

I recently got my first Platinum (3776 Balance) and was pleasantly surprised. The nib (SF) was as good as I've heard but I also thought the plastic appeared as good as that on the Sailor PG. I know that is heresy, but I've got a pair of pliers and a bucket of water handy. I now feel tempted to buy one of their fancier pens (or a Nakaya) when I can afford (alas, that list just keeps on growing) and some variant of that model just became one of the prime options (although it will probably end up being one of the briarwood pens).

 

I find it odd that there was not a converter in the box. It is worth such a small fraction of the cost of the entire package so why not include one?

Thank you for pointing out the differences. Are the nibs on these Izumos larger than the regular 18k nibs used on the President pens?

Thank you. :) I really don't know why the converter was not installed inside the pen at the factory itself.

Thank you for the nice review but ... I was looking at an Izumo Akatame for somewhat later, but now after reading your review I have already budgeted for next month. Oh well, I should not be reading the reviews if I wanted to save money.

 

Thanks again, and really a great review.

Thanks Again :)

Hello Hari, great review!! Beautiful pen indeed!! How do you like the nib?? I have a Platinum president, wich uses the same nibs, and don't really like it; too stiff, feels like a stainless steel nib. What is your opinion? Thanks!!

Hi, thanks!

 

I like the nib, I have tried all three: F/M/B and love the B, one of my friends loves his F. It is a rigid nib, not soft.

Hi Hari, I saw one post for Izumo wood with matt finish mentioning that matt wood is prone to ink stains. How about this glossy one?

      @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

      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.
