Tohma Pens

Anyone else order a Tohma pen as of late? He's been taking online orders late this year.

 

I didn't have a chance to inquire at his physical storefront 2 years ago in Tokyo, so I'm glad he's opening up online orders.

 

I was lucky enough to snag a KB nib while he was taking orders for it. Still waiting on delivery, which he quoted as 3 months make time. I should be getting the pen around the end of January or early February.

 

While his pens are predominately JP ED, Tohma has been experimenting with order filling mechanisms like a snorkel-esque one which you can view on his instagram.

I have the Tohma on left currently on order.  When I saw that nib I couldn't help myself!  I was also quoted about three months.  One month down, two to go!

I should have one by end of this month or early next month. Carbon fibre Kumataka with M nib. 

Congrats! I have been looking at Tohma pens for a while but have never had the overwhelming desire to pull the trigger, especially since I have two Hakases, a Montblanc 149 with custom urushi/raden work and a Pelikan Maki-e fountain pen in my collection right now. Would love to hear your opinions once you get the pen :).

Please credit my photo next time you use one. Or maybe I just can't see it from my phone.

Rhe nib is completely different than any of your other pens. I asked for a soft nib and it is indeed that. Maybe not a brush, but a unique writing experience.

 

Hakase is ultra smooth. The 149 nibs are my favorite production nibs in 03B. The m800 nibs are great but the m1000 nibs I'm not fond of. You would get something different with a Tohma nib.

Lol. I should have figured you had one in your collection. From the sounds of it, I would not mind having a Tohma in my collection and trying out that soft nib.  Would you say the soft nib is like the Montblanc calligraphy nib in terms of flex and bounce back?

I already have a Tohma, bought back when he wasn’t as popular as he is now. It’s a Kumataka aka-Tamenuri finish with a flex F nib. While the nib can flex to 3B, feed has issues keeping up. Not surprising, since not many modern pens have feeds to keep up with flexing. Other Tohma had a soft nib, which is a joy to write with.

Sorry Aaron - I didn't realize it was your photo. I picked it off the internet somewhere when it appeared via a Google search but was unidentified and uncredited.

No problem. I've had my photos used in ads for other people's pens without permission which is misrepresentation. None of that on your part. 

 

You will like the pen I believe. It will be different than your lovely Nakaya nib collection, maybe closest to the elastic nibs. I look forward to your thoughts. The CS resin should hold up well to use.

I have had one of these pens near the top of my list since I first found him on Instagram - he really seems to do amazing work, and those nibs are huge. I've also been considering buying an Oldwin Classic in the CS acrylic material he is using. Zaddick - may I ask how the Conway Stewart material on your Tohma looks in person?

That Tohma logo looks like it came straight from the 80s, and not in a good way.

 

It's not for everyone. Not every pen can be a Pilot custom 823.

What a beautiful, gigantic pen! I am very curious about that soft nib, made by Kubo-sensei no less! If you can, please do give us a review when you receive your order.

 

I was especially taken with the demonstrator model (https://www.instagram.com/p/CK6aTR4DNqR/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link).

Still waiting on my pen. I did get an update recently - with pictures - about it almost being completed, but there was a defective part. Not sure how long it will take to get resolved. Not in a hurry to receive it, but anxiously waiting.

 

Anyone get their order yet?

You're apparently ahead of me.  I have two on order but no updates or pictures yet.

Would love to see if there are any updates. I too have ordered a pen but was quoted 6 months. I have 0 patience so this will be tough. At least it’s not 13 months or whatever it is now for Hakase

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
