Considering Taking The Namiki Either Emperor Or Yukari Plunge- Advice Please


Recommended Posts



I have been lurking for a few years, and have a small collection of German and Italian pens that I use daily-- Im a writer.


I have become increasingly convinced that I need a Namiki pen and have looked at both the Emperor and the Yukari Royale line.


May I get advice on:

1. Useablity-- which one is a better daily use pen

2. Good places to find a used pen (besides Ebay) at a fair price

3. Best vendors if I chose to purchase a new pen

4. What else I need to know


Thank you,

For impressiveness and ink capacity the Emperor with the #50 nib wins hands down. But for everyday use and comfort i found the girth and weight of the Yukari Royale to be a better fit as I can live with the lower ink capacity of the con-70 converter.


Both pens can be used every day, but the hand feel and weight distribution was better in the Yukari Royale for me. i also did not have to fiddle with opening the tail of the pen to let ink flow.


Given the amount you are thinking of spending, it really should be something you try in person, maybe at a pen show or shop. Even if it meas a special trip.


Use Emperors can be found at auctions and some places like Chatterly Luxuries. I'd probably reach out to Bryant at Chatterly and see if he has any leads. He buys and sells a lot of pens on consignment at pretty good prices usually.

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

      @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.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
