Montblanc Starwalker Maki-E



Recommended Posts

Despite I know is not a fountain pen (technically, is a rollerball pen) I wanted to share my last piece of maki-e over a pen.

The design is inspired on my trips to Asia.
Starting by clouds with rain-drops falling under a dark night sky, the pen is dominated by a Pagoda-like decoration inspired in the Ayutthaya and Angkor Period.
The rest of the pen is also decorated with rice fields and pine-trees.
Finally, the end of barrel and the metallic rollerball cap are lightly sprinkled with golden powder to resemble both the stars and the reflection of them over water.
I hope you like it.

wow!

'The Yo-Yo maneuver is very difficult to explain. It was first perfected by the well-known Chinese fighter pilot Yo-Yo Noritake. He also found it difficult to explain, being quite devoid of English.

So we left it at that. He showed us the maneuver after a sort. B*****d stole my kill.'

I´ve been doing some maki-e on knifes and swords, and this is my first pen (quite difficult due the small curvature radius).

Also seems ridiculous but it took roughly the same time it takes to decorate a large knife (almost two months) as the driver factor is drying and polishing times rather than anything else.

I found it quite challenging as the smaller the object, less room for errors you have...

Wow, beautiful colors! I would never have imagined the starwalker w/ maki-e but it brings it up to another level...

Impressive! Any chance of doing a Nakaya-like 'ascensing dragon' on a 149? ;)

Is being done; not in a 149 but in a X450 :D (bought 20 as white canvas)

Interesting! I guess when you've got that perfected, you'll be able to try it on a MB Tribute to the Mont Blanc or Meissen Ceramic? ;)

First I´ll try to sell these and see if I can recover part of the investment in supplies and time :)

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
