Recommended Posts

I am trawling asian Pen sites for not seen before's ...and will post to this thread. Pity there is not a brand forum for Asian Pens...it is afterall a big enough topic.

 

Found this just now ... there is also provision for having your name or text applied in a range of English and Asian styles.

The Glamour was made by the Platinum Pen Company. $25 is a good price. Same for the Platinum koi. Great price.

 

Who is the seller? Seems like someone from Taiwan as most online Japanese pen dealers refuse to sell overseas.

Where did you find these? I want one of those "Glamour" pens, if only because it's the ugliest and most impractical pen I've seen yet that didn't feature nekkid women on it. :lol:

My first impression is that I like these a lot. Where did you find them. The only problem is that if they are medium nib only, that might be a dealbreaker for me.

That looks to me like the kind of pen that a Borg (Star Trek) would use. :lol:

I wonder how comfortable it is to write with. Does it make you join the Collective? ;)

 

Actually, I guess it does... Look what happened to Elijah Wood after he used a Platinum Glamour:

OK, so you say that the bumpy Borg pen is made by Platinum... so why can't I find it on Platinum's website?

 

Where was it sold for $25.00?

Right so he found a picture of a BORG pen. Somebody made it and took a picture,

and somebody must sell it. Curious minds want to know... <_<

Chihiro- How did you know my name was Chihiro?

Stan is right it is a platinum ....the reason you cannot find one is that it is a domestic Japanese model ...there are many like this that we will never see. I am cultivating (sucking up to) a contact in Tokyo ...so I might have a line for future models of Japan only pen.

 

Must go ...but the cyborg stuff really deserves a reply.

      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
    • A Smug Dill
      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
