raivtash Posted May 24, 2016 Share Posted May 24, 2016 I recently gambled on this lot of three pens, advertised as Tsuchida/ban-ei pens and they were not cheap. The three pens measured at 140, 145, 150cm respectively. Whereas the 145 pen is a ban-ei for sure, as the nib bears G.K. print and same as the Danitrio ban-ei. A comparison with Dani ban-ei. I have doubts about the other two. The 150cm jumbo pen with the large 60 nib is a fantastic pen and true joy to write with. the nib writes very similar to the G.K. nib but more flexible. But the feed looks quite different. The 140cm pen is a Kamakura-bori construction with a flexible nib. Fantastic writer too, but I am least sure that this is a Ban-ei. All pens are great writers and all require a new seal, which I have not figured out how to do. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
