Stylo Art urushi maki-e and chinkin pens

Wanted to present my current stable of Stylo Art pens. 

 

1. Akebono/bokashi chinkin butterflies

2. Dragon maki-e

3. Pine tree and cranes maki-e

 

The pen bodies are exclusive to Stylo Art and are large pens being slightly bigger than a Namiki Yukari but are lightweight. I believe the base material is plastic. The akebono chinkin pen has an amazing Pilot #15 nib custom ground by Yukio Nagahara to what is called an N-point. It writes a super smooth and juicy fat line at about 45 degree that gets more narrow as the pen angle is steepened. It's kinda a cross between a Sailor Zoom and Naginata grind sort of, it's doing it's own thing really. The other two pens have stock (?) Pilot stub nibs, which be warned, are really more like cursive italics. Wonderful nibs but a little more demanding than a Western stub. All come with Paulowina wood boxes, pen sleeves, and CON-70 converters. Most excellent pens and more than fairly priced. Highly recommended.

Gorgeous! Next time I'm in Karuizawa I'll have to drop by...

Too many pens; too little writing.

I love the crane motif, and those are adorable! Thanks for showing them, although I really didn’t need to know another company that makes maki-e pens! :P
