Do you remember the craze for Danitrio raw ebonite?

Do you remember the craze for Danitrio raw ebonite pens? I'm dating myself, but that musta have been something like 12 - 15 years ago.

 

Do you still have your raw ebonites, and do you still love them? My answers is "yes and yes", though I must admit that they do not get that much time with the ink. Being eyedropper filled, the Densho and Mikado hold so much ink that it takes a long time to get through an ink load.

Hey Tojusi, never owned a Danitrio but tt would be nice to see and ogle at some of your Danitrio raw ebonite pens.

Oh yes, I do!

 

I am the lucky owner of two of these beauties, both with an external nib (Pelikan and Platinum). I love the Japanese ED filling "system" and the ebonite. I used to write in café and bars )not so easy these days), so the ink capacity is really an advantage for me.

 

Although beautiful, I don't really like the feeling of urushi laquer, so the raw ebonite is a real joy. I did own two urushi Denshos and sold them both (one of them back to its original owner if my memory serves me well).

 

For some reason, the Densho is the perfect pen for me, the ergonomy fits my hand perfectly, the size is just  what I need. My grail pen.

 

I really wish that Danitrio would have kept these pens into production, but I understand the buisness and profit matter.

I was using mine today! It reminded me that I used to come here. Just looked at that date of my purchase email. It was 2007.

I don't know the artist but the silver work indicates it is a Yin Yang and the mosaic is abalone, even though it doesn't show up in the crummy photo.

Raw ebonite Danis were a way to promote the sales of their pens. Kevin was the promoter of this pens that were offer in limited quantities.  I still have the pens that I bought from Kevin and they bring back a lot of memories.

I agree. I miss Kevin's involvement on FPN.

I had one of the Fellowship pens that I stupidly sold.

I too have the best memories of Kevin. He sold me my first Dani, black urushi, and was kind enough to provide with a broken raw Densho I was able to get working. I too miss Kevin's enthousiasm and involvment.
