Looking for a grail urushi pen

I recall there were some pens on nibs.com that uses "taka maki-e" technique that raised the designs on the body of the pen (charcoal deposition technique) similar to the Platinum Kurikara-ken, but was more pronounced. I don't see those pens offered on nibs.com anymore. Does anyone have other source references of such pens?

Are you specifically wanting it to be raised charcoal? If so, I think it’s called Sumiko and Nakaya still offers a variety: https://www.nakaya.org/en/gallery.aspx?body=Sumiko. Nibs.com only has a couple but you could special order through them.

 

Otherwise, I’ve seen taka maki-e on high-end Namiki maki-e pens (Yukari Royale and Emperors) and some Pelikan maki-e pens.

      @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.
