Namiki Supplies Europe


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


End October last year I ordered a red namiki yukari ryale at La C. in Holland.

Normally this pen was foreseen as a present for my wife a christmas present.

In december , i got a friendly call from the shop that there was a computer problem with order entry at Namiki and that the delay was January this year.

So far so good , but this week I got a new mail.from the shop that this very pen could probably be delivered end March , with the info out of Japan:

"At Namiki we want to maintain our highest production standards"

This comes quite strange to me ?


Anyone any ideas on potential issues

Ps , even at iguana sell Europe, the pen could not be delivered.

Goodmorning Arran, this looks strange for us.

Unfortunately Japan has not an open communication. Especially when it comes to troubles or other unforeseen problems. I'm sure they are embarrased with this delay. They will do everything to fix this as soon as possible. With the sentence "At Namiki we want to maintain our highest production standards" I assume there is a production problem. No matter how you toss and turn, urushi is urushi. It is a craft. The process can not be accelerated. If the pen could "probably" be delivered at the end of March, it is going to be a probably !


The only thing you can do is ….. wait … for a marvellous Red Namiki Yukari Royale. You will enjoy it even more.


Take care, Catherine

its basically waiting for a Nakaya from the Pen workshop it's produced from typically 2/3rds a year's wait so ordering in october for xmas isnt really the wisest of ideas unless there's a back stock which I doubt

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      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.
