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 

 

What did you order? And put me in line for it when you change your mind. LOL

 

I have two of his pens. I am confident you will like yours.

Hahah :). I ordered the Hightaka 55 Urushi Col. Kurotame-nuri   It looks amazing. How do they write, zaddick? Say… compared to a emperor? I don’t mind soft as long as it’s not mushy.   I ordered a medium nib.1 does it hold true to Japanese size? (they are always a size smaller)

I ordered wide nibs and they are western width. I am sure of you expressed a specific line width desire it would be met. The nibs I have are much softer than Namiki #50. The times will spread but it is not a flex nib. You can vary the line width pretty easily with pressure. 

 

There is also a raptor nib that I have seen, but not tried. You might want to ask about that. It is a different shape, thinner and pointy.

Oh, wow! You bought that exquisite demonstrator that Tohma was showing on Instagram. Would you perchance have a photo of that pen full of ink, just for penporn’s sake?

I have not inked mine yet. I'm still enjoying taking pics of it while it is as clean as it will ever be. But a friend of mine has inked his so I stole so e photos from his IG account. Full credit to Jack for these photos. (To be fair he got his well before me so he had his time to enjoy the pen uninked too.)

Wow. Amazing pics. Thank you for this Zaddick. I love huge pens(emperor is one of my favorites) so I think this will be a perfect fit for me.   Now I just have to decide if I’ll go for a medium or fine. Leaning towards a medium.  I’m hoping the 6 month timeline holds firm. Me and patience go together like tuna fish and peanut butter. 
 

on a side note, I wonder how this pen will travel (by plane). Seems the shut off valve system is pretty robust.

These pens look wonderful, but I'm done buying 'statement' pens that don't fit me for purpose. That means no more Emperor size pens. I'd love to see these (with that epic nib) in a Yukari Royale size...

Too many pens; too little writing.

I think the pen I ordered is smaller than their outer offerings. I wonder if you could stop order something like that ?

The picture from Jack shows the raptor nib option. If you are going for that and want something pretty responsive you should inquire about that option.

You can definitely get shorter pens, and probably thinner to an extent, as long as you are open to sacrificing ink capacity.

Thanks guys. I may have to shoot them an email as a (reliable) eyedropper in a Yukari Royale size would scratch a rather large itch.

I've had good luck on IG. If you need an intro or are not hearing back let me know and I can reach out. I'd be curious to see what might be available.

      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
