Japanese Pen Brag Page



Recommended Posts

Greetings all,

 

Do we have a "Japanese pen brag page" , like the "What Parker are you using this day?" page or the Pelikan "Whats the most recent addition to the flock?" page.

A interesting brag page is the "Whats the most recent MB purchase?"

 

These pages allow us to share our enthusiasm, joy and pride with a community that appreciates and supports and even encourages this compulsive behavior.

Pens need not be exotic or expensive, pictures are whatever can be achieves with what at hand.

 

And the reason I ask......

I just adopted this Sailor Denshiro and wanted to share this beautiful pen with all who love Sailor pens.

The material used for the barrel is wild cherry tree bark, a traditional material used by the Samurai.

This work is only done in one town in Japan, Kakunodate, located in Senboku District, Akita Prefecture.

Few have the skill to preform this work but for 5 generations the Fujiki Denshiro company has been making items from the bark. They made the barrels for Sailor and so proudly, Denshiro is engraved next to Sailor on the cap-band and the pen become its namesake.

 

What I love about Japanese pens it the harmonious blend between atheistic sensitivity and technical performance. Here we have the traditional craft of the Samurai, with Nobuyoshi Nagahara's masterful nib design, brought together to a balance of beauty and function.

My thanks goes to all the craftsmen for their relentless pursuit of perfection.

very nice pen

Texture:

The dark wood is smooth and the scars or markings (for lack of a better name) have texture.

I have never seen a Japanese wild cherry tree in the flesh but found this picture.

That's a beautiful pen; your photography shows it off well, too.

I'm still trying to figure out how to list all my pens down here.

I agree we should have a brag page for recently acquired Japanese pens but we know they speak for themselves.

I think there is also a maki-e technique that mimics this cherry bark pattern...

Yes, Danitrio has used the technique for a while. I think they just use the word for cherry, sakura.

I tried a Falcon once and loved the flex, since then I have been looking for one but since they are so desirable, they usually sell high. I like the way the nib looks, quite unique. Lovely pen!

I also like your choice of ink, I have been trying to be more adventitious, but haven't worked my way up to Poppy corn yet! :D

besides the CH 91 with a broken section that I have no way of fixing...

I am not familiar with the CH 91, Was that section used on any other pens? could you possibly find a donor pen?

That is a seriously beautiful looking pen there. Is it heavy? It looks like it would feel delightful. Also, your photography is lovely too.

I agree with you that it looks more like a Dianthus ( I had to look that up lol ) but the Japanese name for this design is "Hinagiku" which I think is a daisy.

Very nice, I hadn't seen this one before. How are the snap caps on those Platinums? Is it pretty secure?

Thanks for showing it off for us :)
