Sure! The name is in the middle. Not a big name pen but a very nice one. The price was just a little over ¥10,000, if I remember correctly. Am trying to track down the receipt for my records. Any way, it is hand made. I have a little more info but not yet in digital form. More later. Anyway, it's good talking with you again.

Michael, if you're interested in handmade wooden pens, you might like manojd's (fellow FPNer) work. Check it out here. There are also some threads on the forums, but those I would have to go looking for... you could search on his profile and find them for yourself. I bought two!

They have a web address but it is a funky one that my server can't access, not an uncommon problem. I have found them for sale online. Will try to send you the link but it may be a few days. Please remind me if I don't get it to you after a while.

 

Glad to hear your 刀 is working out for you.

I really like the Islander pen I wonder which Island inhabitant he named that for ;) that is supposed to be a wink btw.

I have three Japanese pens now and another will be here soon but I do like the ebony and rosewood Fosfor Islander pens the workmanship is outstanding.

 

I will just have to sell more cases.

 

Thanks

I know the one Japanese pen you have, what are the other three?

 

I too really like the Islander. Sharp looking.

He does very good work and is a pleasure to work with; otherwise I have no affiliation...

And the pens are a joy to look at And to write with.

It is really difficult to get a good picture here is my best attempt

It is a Danitrio but you probably knew that I am still in the process of making a case for it.

The round pen case is progressing nicely now I have focused on the upper section I sewed one of the rings yesterday and then realised I had sewn it without the false bottom in it and had to undo it all

Of the four rings of stitching on the upper section only one actually does anything it is the second from the bottom

In this picture you can see the false bottom in position this compartment will hold small ink bottles and spare nibs

 

 

 

Thanks for looking

Cheers Kate, especially if you mean the case doodles - the leaves are the notebook, the 64 Leaves Journal which I adore. It has great paper for fp's.

Life is funny sometimes welcome fox point the commissioner of this quiver (we will call her T) and I discussed many options before deciding on a quiver, and one of those was a wrap made from leather with kydex tubes inside, I even considered individual flaps but not with studs as they would cause problems when the case is rolled up. They were just flaps made from suede as would be the rest of the inside.

Here is a wrap I made some time ago.

 

Your drawings are fantastic and I am honoured that you have taken inspiration from my humble offerings if you wish to make the case yourself I will help you in anyway I can just ask.

Of course I would be willing to make it for you if you wished.

Your idea would work as I made a mock up with 5 tubes the only drawback in the case for T was the pens were oblique pens and the tubes would have been an inch in diameter making the finished wrap huge,

 

My intention has always been to inspire others above all else which is why I have shared so much detail with the exception of things that might be dangerous,

Fox Point your post and drawings have made my day.

 

Thanks

I forgot to mention I have changed the design of the lid to have a button on the top with the initial T on it it is really to help with the transition of the straps on top of the lid section which you can also see in this picture.

It will also help with identification should it be put down next to someone else's custom pen quiver. :)

Straps fasteners handle edges there is not really that much left to do.
