@como, it is the Pelikan collector box for 24 pens. Pelikan M800 was my entry into the rabbit hole, so even though I now prefer Japanese pens I still have a strong soft spot for Pelikans. Next thereto this box is very compact, and holds almost all size pens. The Nakaya long and Namiki Emperor and some others (none of which I own bytheway) excluded...

@Linger: Thank you for showing the pen box. I now remember that I have seen this Pelikan box for sale before, a nice one, not too expensive yet very presentable. If I understand you correctly, the Long Cigar doesn't fit in this one? I have looked at Franklin Christoph's pen trays. The 7-pen tray can fit but it's sold out for the moment. My Long Cigar is always out, homeless 😀.

Thank you! I also like it very much, something very serene about it.

Family extension!

It is not the first time that the Portable Cigar Bamboo Woods shows up on FPN. But it is the first time I see it and hold it and write with it in real life. 

 

My order (via Akkerman in Den Haag, NL) went to Japan mid July and the pen arrived at my home just before New Year’s Eve - so fairly quickly. 

 

And it is beautiful. Truly and utterly beautiful. Photos do not do it justice. Especially not mine...with the typical Dutch overcast, grey weather forcing an ugly flashlight. The colours are so much more vibrant and deep and alive. Next thereto, I was most surprised to see an almost 3D effect on the patterns - I guess a result of the different layers of lacquer.

 

As it is not my first Portable, the size and weight of the pen were no surprise. The Medium nib is solid. It has a nice flow which results in an easy effortless writing experience. I have another M nib that was tuned by Nakaya staff during a store event to absolute perfection, so I originally thought about swapping the nibs. But this nib is almost as good. And after reading other threads on that topic I am not so sure anymore in any case. The idea of damaging any of the two pens fills me with dread... 

 

The pen will replace my Portable Writer in Heki-Tamenuri. That is the one with the tuned M nib, so I hate to see it go, but I need to recuperate a bit of the grail-investment in the Bamboo Woods...not to mention a wishlist containing a Neo and a Dorsal Fin...

 

It is inked up with Montblanc Kipling Jungle Green - appropriate for a pen depicting a Panda Bear Forest. A nice ink, bytheway, that is army/olive drab green, but subdued, inconspicuous, also easily fitting in a more formal environment. 

 

All-in-all, this is something to proudly behold. Japanese mastery of lacquer art and pen craftsmanship. I am happy.

Bamboo Woods is a gorgeous pen.  I have it both in Portable and also Neo Standard with the hand painted matching clip.  I think Bamboo Woods is the best looking Nakayas I have owned!  I hope you enjoy yours a great deal!

Thanks whichwatch. Actually, it was your post/thread “deeper into the woods” that hooked me onto it almost immediately. Another FPN member was kind enough to reach out to me with some further information/encouragement, and here we are.

How is that BB stub? I have a Ryogiri on order with a B stub and thinking of changing it to BB stub. Anyway here are my Nakayas. Portable Cigar Yakomakie Bat in Kuro-tamenuri with BB CI with added flex and a Decapod Twist Heki-tamenuri with Soft Medium.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      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.
