Namiki Raden Line Question

Recommended Posts

So, I've been checking a lot of Raden pens recently, and found that I like the Yukari Nightline series very much due to the raden distribution and the sprinkled gold dust patterns.


After much searching the net, the current version being marketed was not much to my taste due the ''black lines'' across the Raden which I felt detracted from the patterns,

I've been looking for this particular version, but I can't seem to find a name or model number per se, just that it's an older edition of the pen, which makes looking for it a bit hard.

And there's even a nicer one here, on the right, which i'm told is from the 70s era !




So I was wondering if anyone knows a good resource to look up this particular line from Namiki-Pilot ? Help a fpn-er find a grail pen ! The 70s one really caught my eye...

I think that the earlier version was called the Nightline, while the later version was dubbed the Nightline Moonlight.

 

Don't know where you might find one though.

Mmmm...lovely pen. I'd love one of Nakaya's many raden designs but I am afraid that they will always be very much beyond my means. It's nice to have somethng to dream about, though...:)

You might be lucky finding the discontinued version of the Nightline on the second hand market. You could post a WTB add on Classifieds. You'll probably need some patience though.

 

If it's the combination of raden and gold sprinkles you like you could check if you like some other, still available pens.

 

Like the Namiki Yozakura (picture from my blog)

Wasn't the Namiki Yozakura Raden discontinued some time ago? I've been trying to get one of them, but all I can say is that I haven't been successful.

Oops Exlaminis, I didn't know that. I was just running a quick google search and there seemed to be a few shops carrying it so I thought it was still available.

 

I'm pretty sure though there are quite a few other pen models featuring raden and gold sprinkles. If all else fails you could always get a custom Nakaya in that style, I should think?

There is a raden/gold dust pen you could also consider: the Platinum Aurora. However, I think it, too, has been discontinued.

Another beautiful raden pen, but yes, sadly it's discontinued.

Good suggestion too..will look up pics for it, I recall it can be had for around 1.8k~~

I do like the Nakaya models, they are as you said, pricey. The Milky Way is on the more affordable side and let me tell you its a big pen, and looks nicer than the photos...managed to handle one when I went to Mora Styles in Paris awhile back.

I will give classfields a shot ! Makes you wonder what pens we purchase today will be the ones highly sought after in the years to come..good idea about the custom Nakaya too ! Though I'm sure they'd break the bank, will have to give them a budget to work with :lticaptd:

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
