Very smart of Sailor to re-issue these. Now the only other one they need to bring back is Red-Brown.

With the new FPN rules, now I REALLY don't know what to put in my signature.

We spoke with our Sailor rep last week and they informed us that they were likely to come to the US, just a question of when. When they are in stock we will have them, which means online as well as at US pen shows we attend. More info as we get it. :)

Woot. Will you also offer samples of these inks? I'm not sure I want full bottles of Souten, Nioi Sumire, or Oku-Yama, so it would be terrific to be able to get 3 ml of each.

Have you had the opportunity to try Nagasawa Kobe #39 "Kobe Brick Red-Brown"?

Definitely keeping an eye out to see when these arrive. I wouldn't mind ordering a bottle from Atsu, though. My niece is in Japan for two weeks as I write this...hm....I wonder if I can talk her into finding some for me while she's there.

For those who ordered from Atsu, may I know how long does it take for the inks to reach your mailbox?

It's been almost 5 days with no updates on my tracking, it generally takes about 3 days for stuff to arrive from Japan to my country so I am a tad worried on the lack of updates.

I'm in the central US, and each of the last two packages Atsu sent me has arrived in 7 days. I have tracked the packages, and they get from Tokyo to NYC *very* quickly (and then they languish in New York for a couple of days before the journey resumes).

I'm in Florida and have the same experience except that mine typically take around 8 days.

It's consistently 8 days for me in the New England region. Tracking doesn't usually show quick updates for me so I stopped looking. He's very good about shipping quickly though. I've been ordering quite a bit lately from him and have no complaints except trying to rationalize why I'm buying more ink. :-)

Thanks for the reply guys!

I finally got an update few hours after I've posted my question. It should be here by today!

If I didn't know better, I'd say the post office is pulling a prank on me.

I'll start saving money now, because you will be getting an ink order from me.

Any chance these are available in Tokyo at the Likes of Ito-ya (or other suggestions)? I will be there on Friday...great excuse to try them out and stock up!

      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
