Eboya For European Customers : With Eye-Dropper Or C/c System ?


Sakura FP Gallery
 Share

Recommended Posts

I would like to know if European customers would like an eye-dropper system for the Eboya's. I have the Eboya pens in my boutique but ordered them only with cartridge/convertors. Eye-droppers are not common in Europe. When I mention in general the possibility of eye-dropper system customers tend to respond in a negative way.

 

It seems to me that in the US eye-droppers are more accepted and appreciated.

 

I would appreciate your comments.

I'd personally prefer eyedropper versions.

 

If I could afford any of their pens that is...

Why? since the system is much simpler?

The Eboya eyedropper isn't like a typical eyedropper system. It has a blind cap and rod attached to a sealing cone, which acts as an ink shut off. http://i.imgur.com/Dlcu3sR.jpg

In the top, the blind cap is unscrewed, allowing ink to flow to the feed. In the pen under that, the blind cap is screwed on, resulting the in sealing rod cutting off ink flow.

Here's a picture of my eyedropper Kyouka. You can see the sealing cone of the shut-off mechanism sticking out of the barrel. It's similar to the system on Danitrio eyedropper pens and the Namiki Emperor.

 

 

 

As for the question about carrying Eboya eyedroppers, I'm in the United States, but I love them - huge ink capacity and leak-proof. For me, it's one of the defining characteristics of my Eboya pen. It is quite a bit of a premium over Eboya's C/C pens though. But I personally would only buy an Eboya pen with the eyedropper system.

Thanks for the explanation - yes, that is not the eyedropper-filled system I'm familiar with...

its a Japanese Eye Dropper style as far as I know they(Japan) are the only ones that make eye droppers with shut off valves

Mainly a Namiki Urushu type 50 will also have the same thing

 

I prefer the Eye dropper as well at least when compared to eye droppers without a shut off valve

Should I buy this kind of very niche pen (and I well might soon), I would go for the eyedropper, just to make it stand out from all the rest of my pens!

Eyedropper. It makes the Eboya relatively unique; the Conid Bulkfiller is the only real competition (for capacity and security) at the price...

 

For the record, I've ordered an eyedropper Eboya Kyouka from CFP, and already own a Namiki Emperor.

Too many pens; too little writing.

Ooh, which color/nib did you pick? You'll love the Kyouka! I'm usually one for clipless pens and flat-tops, but the Namiki Emperor in red urushi is getting harder and harder to resist.

Same as yours, just one size up. Nib'll be a fine, I think, though I may get John to grind a stub of some sort.

 

I was tempted by the bright green, but having not seen it in person, figured I'd play it safe. I've been burned with ebonite before - a yellow mottled custom that wasn't all I'd hoped.

 

I love everything about the Emperor except the curvature of the section that I find to be quite uncomfortable in prolonged use...

Nice! I can't wait to read your review! They're always fantastic. Though after reading the Nervion review and buying a Romillo (I'm sure a Hakase purchase is coming soon), it may be best to avoid any future reviews of yours :P

nice pics.

 

I manage a website (see below) and I write about specific feeds and the first is an older version, of an eyedropper type. Would you mind if I use your drawings in my report?

with kindness...
