Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I saw this at Pen Boutique Tokyo the other day, they said it's the new Sailor KOP, does anyone have any information on this pen finish? My understanding is it's ebonite, is there any other pen with ebonite like this? Quite unique.

Apparently the same type of layered ebonite material last used on the 105th Anniversary Pen(different color pattern of course).

 

Have to say I'm also not a big fan of this color combo

They are clever, they bring this pen out before Pilot starts selling the anniversary pens. People still have some money. :)

Its a very well-priced pen, at least in Japan. ~¥80000 for an ebonite KOP is very good value...

Too many pens; too little writing.

Regular black ebonite KOP costs 70,000 plus tax. You can pick it up at 60,000 inclusive of tax.

 

This KOP reminds me of those unappealing looking Indian Ebonite pens.

I hardly ever see KOPs in urushi or ebonite in the wild in Japan. They simply dont seem to be available...

Urushi is rare, they are discontinued as per sailor. Ebonite is easy.

      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

      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
