Thanks to the OP who let us know about this opportunity! My order of two inks arrived yesterday (about a week from ordering) in good shape. Haven't got an empty pen to ink yet but will try to post a picture as soon as I do.

I am starting to get worried. Mine shipped on 3/18, tracking showed it in Tokyo on 3/19, and nothing since then. I live in MI, and was hoping it'd be here by now. Atsu told me approximately 10 days, and it has been 12, but I was hoping to see something via the tracking.

 

It isn't like I have nothing else to occupy my time, but I have been looking forward to this ever since I saw the photos of the old yama-dori.

Maybe you could try some other tracking services, like 17track or trackonline and see if there is anything more there. But I'd say it is nothing unusual so far.

Usually postal services don't work on the weekends, so when he says 10 days, he means 10 *business* days. If it shipped March 18th, today is the 10th day. I wouldn't start worrying just yet! :)

I ordered mine on March 18th, live in Michigan, and haven't received mine either! I am able to track my shipment and it is bouncing all over Michigan since the 29th. Really - take a look:

OK - mine arrived today in great shape. Took a bit of navigating through Michigan, but well worth the wait. I went with Yama-Dori, Shigure, and Miruai.

Nice! While you're there, you should check out the Athena Inks, which are made for Maruzen by Sailor. Eternal Blue is beautimous.

Thanks! I picked that and one of the Greens up in the Maruzen in Tokyo, I already had a bottle of the Sepia. Next ink journey will be for Bung Box inks...and I am particularly interested in the Bird and Bug series just released...picture attached from a different thread but I can't link from my phone...

If you go for Bung Box inks try to get a bottle of Starry Night. They only sell that online in a case of a dozen so it'll be worth trying to buy a bottle in the store.

 

Those "bird & insect" ink swatches are the 5th Anniversary range I bought from Kingdom Note. They're really different to the usual Sailor bespoke colours. I like them.

10 days after first starting to worry, my suspicions are getting firmer. No package.

 

The only info tracking has is that it left Japan on 3/19. Zilch since then. Atsu and I are trying to work both ends, but I have no confidence that it will turn up. Lost in the %^&*(%^&*!!! ether, apparently.

 

This is the first time I have ever lost an international package, and it irritates. I was looking forward to this, probably disproportionally so.

TIP

I've got a few of these inks and I noticed a date stamp on the boxes, which I suspected were Use By dates. Mine are 14-2-17 and 14-2-19, but one box had 14-2-13 on it. I was worried that this last bottle was one of the left over orignal production run and was therefore expired. I checked with Atsu and he reminded me that in Japan their date format is YY-MM-DD. And these are the production dates of the ink.

 

Duh - silly me! :blush:

 

PS I'm in love with Oku-yama

Well, I am pretty much giving up on my shipment of Yama Dori from Atsu.

 

Atsu reports that the Japan Postal Service indicates the package has certainly left Japan. The US Postal Service indicates it has never entered the United States.

 

I guess it is on that isalnd with Tom Hanks in Castaway. @^$%

Sorry to hear that, I can feel your pain.

I've been waiting for 5 weeks for a bottle of Yama-budo bought on Amazon.ca. I just sent an email to the seller, a little over 5 weeks is just too much!

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now.

      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
