Namiki Limited Edition 2021 Coral Emperor first look and writing sample

Recommended Posts

Here is the mighty No. 50 size Namiki Emperor in the 2021 Limited Edition Coral maki-e. Words cannot express the amazingly superlative incredibleness of this pen. I have some pretty awesome macros I can share in a followup post if anybody is interested.

Congratulations!  That pen looks even more superb in your photo than it did in other shots I've seen online.

 

Luckily, the Emperor is too big for me.  I'm trying to break through the psychological barrier of spending the amount needed for a Yukari Royale Maki-e, without success so far.  I'll just come back to ogle this one regularly, and would certainly love to see some macro shots.

OMG!! That is a gorgeous pen - I was waiting to finally get a proper picture, thanks for sharing. 

I would be very interested in the macro photos!

 

And btw, you rock! Love to see the pen inked

 

Cheers,

Lars

Fabulous! It looks better in your photo than on the namiki site. I nearly got my hands on one to review from a friend but I'm moving country and will miss it by just a week. I'm not sure my family would be very sympathetic to me delaying a huge move just to review a pen.

 

Enjoy your brilliant pen and please post the detail shots!

Would enjoy seeing your review of the Coral! Going to post the macros now. Buckle up, this thing is awesome!

Possibly the most beautiful pen I have ever seen.  I am now so very much looking forward to seeing more of your pictures and hopefully to seeing one in person at some point.  Congratulations on having such a fine work of art!

That’s awesome, kudos! The packaging is amazing too of course. I like the detail on the ink bottle!

Thank you. Congratulations to you as well.

 

Regarding the ink bottle, seems to be the case with all LE pens. Some special ones like 95th anniversary ink bottle was in a different shape.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
