Looks like another Pilot I don't need but want. My favorites to journal with lately are my 845, 823 and M800. If the Urushi feels in the hand anything like the 845 I would really enjoy it.

Great pics. I've seen some elsewhere online but not those. I really like the understated styling, though if given the option I'll take rhodium/silver trim every time.

 

One thing I really like is that Pilot is able to leverage the Con-70 which is a very respectable converter. As compared to the Sailor KOP which has a comically disproportionately sized converter. Though again if given the option I'd have suggested Pilot go all the way and make this thing a piston filler.

Agreed, those pictures brought me back from the brink after MongrelNomad's scathing review.

 

And I could really do without those ball clips

That gives us 2 possibilities:

1. Urushi over Ebonite piston filler pen.

2. Resin piston filler with urushi coating.

 

Both aren't going to be great, definitely not better than the current pen.

 

At 88,000 yen, the current pen is good enough. Though if you want to make a piston filler, it will cost pretty much over 150,000 yen to get the precision of Namiki shut-off valve.

It's a bloated, uncouth, thug of a pen. I've seen it available everywhere - even stationary shops in dead-end towns. I don't forsee it getting any love from any customers, anywhere...

 

Hmm... having the 845 and the MB 149, Pelikan M1000 and Delta OS, I can tell you that it would get lots of love from me! :)

In fact, the only way it would get more love from me is if it were made in any other color, preferably vermillion.

Those pictures make it appear well-proportioned and, dare I say it, elegant. In the flesh it is neither of those things.

Too many pens; too little writing.

I have a trusted seller I go through and he did some asking around for me --sounds like their initial run may have been as low as 10 units (?!!) and the next batch is due in September.

 

This seems unlikely... I visited Tokyo back in March and I could count more than 10 pieces combined in the stores that I visited... Now I am in Osaka and the pen is readily available in all major stores (even in a small pen corner inside Umeda station, not a place filled with high end pens...). Truth be told, I do not think they are selling many.
