I have to go with this Nakaya that I just picked up at the Baltimore Pen Show. I love the color scheme (which reminds me of a Milky Way candy bar), the bamboo theme, and the way the design was even carried onto the section.

Wow. That is one drop dead gorgeous pen. But my brain and immune system are going "urushi? Bad! Urushi? Bad!' :crybaby:

Yeah, I can see the "Milky Way candy bar" part.

Oh my, whichwatch, I've never seen anything so wonderful!

Neither have I. That's why when I saw it, I said (in this order):

 

"I'll take it. How much?"

 

Tough negotiator, right?

Haha...reminds me of of that scene from Seinfeld when the guy offers a lifetime of coffee as compensation to Kramer, and before that guy can say further Kramer cuts in and says "I'll take it."

 

Beautiful pen by the way. I can see what joy it would bring to one to use such a pen.

Until this pen, I could easily, and always did, say: I don't like Maki-e.

 

Now, I must say, this one is of utmost beauty, and certainly the most beautiful pen I have ever seen.

 

Very elegant, and poetic.

very nice pen.

does it lose its colour and shine with use?

Does the surface develop scratches?

I have what I think are some lovely-looking pens, but this one I'm going with because I just really like handling it and looking at it, as well as writing with it. It's a Conway Stewart 85L, from 1957 through 1963 or so. I hope you can see some of the chatoyance in the photos. The gold veins with the pearly green just rings my chimes, for some reason.

I look at it more than I write with it, but so far I have not noticed any change in appearance and I have not seen any real scratches. I am sure if it received more casual use, being tossed on a desk, etc, it might get scuffed a bit, but I am pretty careful with it.
