I'm Getting A Danitrio Mikado. There Can Only Be One True Color Choice. What Is It! Tell Me!

So, I am getting a Danitrio Mikado. It's likely going to be a round top, and with a clip. Gold I believe. I'm getting a urushi basic finish, keeping the price at the minimum. But I am enamoured with so many of the available colors. Tame-nuri, roiro-migaki, irokeshi-dame, all such options are open.

 

At the moment, I think I favor something in green. But Midori-dame tame-nuri, or midori irokeshi-dame (for the different texture).. or Midori Roiro-migake... But then I look at the red/sho or yellow/golden/honey brown ki colors and I'm also stricken with a major case if "I want!"

 

I't's a tough choice, and I figured I'd enjoy seeing your impressions and stories about what danitrio urushi pen is your absolute favorite. Please, don't hold back, tell me about the color/pen you love, the one that's most special to you. The more fanatic you feel the better. Madness is infectious and I want to share your affliction. I know we all can appreciate the beauty of well laid urushi. in all its wonderful colors, but what is THE color for YOU. What pen of yours do you like taking out not only to use, but to simply marvel at.

 

Pictures are more than welcome.

Ogre, I have a Densho in green and can only tell you that it is gorgeous! You'll doubtless be happy with whatever you choose -- and I think you wrong in assuming that there can only be <one> colour...

I know I'm wrong. I also know I won't be able to purchase another such pen for a LONG time, if ever. So I am trying to convince myself. And use the collective biases and passion of the Danitrio fan community to fuel my anticipation for the pen I'm gonna get. I'm all tricksy like that!

Good choice! The Mikado is a lovely pen. I currently have an Ao Roiro-Migaki Mikado, which I love. When I get another Danitrio, I think I'd go for green too. I really like the grass green urushi in the Hanazono collection though. That green is just beautiful. The Shu Roiro-Migaki looks great too. I don't think you could really go wrong with any of the Tamenuri, Irokeshi-dame, or Roiro colors though. They are all gorgeous. Can't wait to see pictures when you receive your pen!

I like the shu rorio-migaki myself.

 

Are you planning to buy a new pen or hunt for some of the older ones that had prototype finishes from FPN member winedoc when he was the US distributor?

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

It'll in all likelihood be a new pen. Most of my money is tied up in store credit at nibs.com, so new is going to be my likely route. Future pens will probably by necessity be used, but that's actually a nice aspect of the hobby. So many pens are bought as gifts and resold that it's not to hard to find anything used at a great price. But my first Mikado, yep, I think I'm taking the big leap and getting that new.

I like the Roiro-Migaki in Vermillion. It is one of the few Dani Trios that I have retained after going through several.
