The Ultimate Eyedropper Pen

Recommended Posts

I feel the Namiki Emperor is the ultimate eyedropper pen. Huge, so huge that other big pens start looking tiny in front of it. Positively huge nib, yet the pen is very comfortable to use. Some pics with a Vermillion Dani Trio Mikado and a black Sho Genkai. The maki-e pattern on this Emperor is called the "Pavilion".

That Emperor is a pretty impressive pen. Between the three pens do they hold a whole bottle of ink? :) What do you think of the shut off on the Danitrio?

The Vermillion one has its shutoff valve reversibly defeated. The Kurokeshi is stock, so is the emperor. The emperor's shutoff mechanism is a class apart, spring loaded and very smooth and precise.

 

I estimate the emperor's ink capacity at roughly 5ml, i am yet to make accurate measurements.

Elaborating on the shutoff mechanism, the Pilot system works directly on the feeder. In Danitrio, the shutoff valve operates on the conical face machined in the section orifice, so it still leaves some captive volume between the section's orifice and the nib unit's orifice where ink will remain.

So you finally got a Namiki Emperor! Beautiful maki-e! I normally fill my Emperor with 3 to 4 mL of ink, but the feed should be able to accommodate another mL of ink.

Beautiful pen, yes. When he came to know that the Emperor was my Grail pen, a FP collector in India decided to offer me this pen to use for as long as I wished to. Of course, I agreed. So it is on loan with me. The Emperor is a pen much beyond my payband. :)

Beautiful, Hari. My grail pen is the Crane, but it's unlikely in the extreme that I'll ever own on unless I win the lottery. We all gotta have a dream, I guess.

Grace and Peace are already yours because God is the Creator of all of life and Jesus Christ the Redeemer of each and every life.

Beautiful pens Hari! A Waterman 20 is more my goal. I wonder how these compare in size to a 20.

      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
