@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.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
